With the Naruto series (possibly) drawing to an end, Naruto skins are rising in popularity and frequency. This Kakashi Hatake skin by DragonsDungeon is a fantastic reproduction of one of the main characters from the series.
The depiction of Kakashi in this skin is easily the most accurate and detailed one available on Minecraft. For those who are not familiar with the Naruto series, compare the skin to this reference image:
Every detail, from the metal plates on his gloves to the symbols on his shirt, has been included. The shading is very well done, and the layering feature was used to add dimension where it is necessary – namely the hair and vest.
This skin is one in a series of Naruto skins done by DragonsDungeon and sasukeminecraft. Visit their pages for more high quality skins!
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:
Download the skin’s .png file;
Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.
Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.
Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.
Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.
Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.
Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).
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.
