Bob Belcher Skin

This Bob’s Burgers fan skin by Kefka is about as close as you’re going to get to having an exact replica of Bob Belcher in Minecraft.  I usually try not to review too many submissions by the same person in a row (having just posted Kefka’s Shark skin), but this one was just too good to pass up.  Behold: Bob Belcher!

Considering the current popularity of the cartoon Bob’s Burgers, a reference is hardly necessary.  Here is one anyway for those of you who are not watchers:

The only issue I have with this skin is its color saturation.  Bob’s hair is darker, as is his skin.  Otherwise I have to give this fan creation a wonderful 19/20 burgers.  Its simplistic shading style may not fit everyone’s tastes, but it stays true to the character.

 

Installing the Skin

 

For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on Minecraft.net.  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.

 

For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:

 

  1. Download the skin’s .png file;

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.

 

Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.

 

This skin was posted by Kefka right after his Homer Simpson skin which you may remember from a while ago.  Which cartoon character would you like to see in Minecraft?  Let us know in the comment section!
