Minecraft 3D Skin Creator with Blender
I was actually looking to do a few Minecraft-based tutorials, and realized that there was not a great way to create the skins for these characters. So, to remedy that, I made a setup in Blender allowing anyone to paint textures for a Steve or Alex model. The setup allows you to create both with a Skin and Overlay portion, taking advantage of the entire texture space, and when done, you can save the image and it exports as a perfect Minecraft character texture!
You can learn how I created this setup in the following Youtube video:
You can also learn how to use this setup to create and export your skins in the video:
Lastly, you can download the Blender setup here, with some added additions shown in the 1.8 Skin Creator use tutorial:
NOTE: This is the first release, so if there is something you wish was different or better, let me know, and I’ll try to make it happen. 🙂
