How To Make Your Own Minecraft Player Skin

This challenge is focused on customizing your Minecraft identity through the minecraft player skin. Minecraft is a world to be built upon and customized, so it just makes sense to customize the avatar that you are using in the game to represent you. Minecraft doesn’t provide any tools to edit a player skin in the game so you need to use a skin editing website.

The Player” is the Minecraft character that you control in the game. By default there are two skins, “Steve” and “Alex.”
