this very breif way of doing skins by using adobe photoshop 7
find high quality pictures of the skin your making then its just a simple matter of selecting areas of the picture using either the pollygonal lasso tool or the rectangular marquee tool copy it then going to the skin plan and press paste, now nearly all of these will need to be modified in someway either by rotating scaleing down/up or skewing (go edit transform to get these options) thats mainly what you keep doing untill you build your skin you will notice everytime you add a texture it appears as 1 layer in the layers box (note) if you have more than 1 layer make sure the layer you want to edit is selected in the layers box it wont let edit all the layers at once.
to colour a area of the skin select the area you want to colour by using the lasso tools then go image adjustments hue saturation this will allow you to change the colour and keep some of the original texture, by using the eyedropper tool you can select a perticular colour in your scheme and by pressing colourise on the hue saturation the area will become colourised to your selected colour.

that is a very basic way of doing a skin their are a lot more options and different methods you can use but that above is the most basic and common
