Therotically, skinning is the process of adding the bone to the mesh, You talking about texturing...You can use any paint program and can view your colorful creations using md3 viewer or mod viewer.

eh? adding bone to the mesh? isnt that weighting? why would they have a skinning forum thats devoted to adding bones to the mesh?

How can I get a model without the skinn on it so I can start skinning?

How will I know what file the model is and when I find the file... Will photoshop open a model document?
