As I have been playing Minecraft, I have made myself a few skins. I figured I would share them, in case you may want to use them yourself.
This was my first skin. I modeled it after Notch's skin, adding a hat, and editing a few things. I think I did a pretty good job with it.
This was the skin I used when I was playing the Aether mod. I still used my original skin, but I used this one for Aether to fit with the style more. It is modeled after Blue Swets, a slime-like mob added by the mod.
While I liked my original skin, over time I felt that it looked a little too similar to Notch's skin. So, about a year ago, I edited the original to make it a little more unique. I changed it to give it a dirty, used look, as to fit with the survival theme of Minecraft. When I'm not playing FTB, this is the skin I use.
Similarly to the Aether skin, I made this to fit in more with the style of FTB. I removed the hat from the original, and changed the clothes from dirty and torn to a lab coat from a Douglas Rattmann skin I found. I picked him for the coat specifically, since he is one of my favorite characters from Valve's games.
As I said before, feel free to use any of these skins. I just wanted to share them with you and tell the story of why I made them.
