If you prefer to create your own sting rather than download a ready-made skin, I invite you to visit  Novaskin .

To connect to Novaskin  click here .

Then select the basic model for your skin from the appropriate bar located in the right part of the editor window and then use the appropriate tools visible on the screen to make the desired changes. Depending on what your preferences and needs are, you can color the skin with the base color, color the clothes, color the face and hair and use pre-generated shades to improve your character. I also suggest you take advantage of the dropper tools and select the layers to act on in order to obtain the best possible result.
