Here is how to build a Minecraft
character, In this how to guide you can find the dimensions needed to do the default character (Steve) or your own skin with Minecraft's specification.
To start you'll need to know the dimensions of your character, lets use each pixel as one Minecraft block, the image below will show you the block measurement needed.

The image below show's the frame work needed for our character, I did the frame with black and white blocks so it's easy to count the pixel/blocks.

It's also a good idea to window your reference image and your Minecraft game just to make it easier to build.

That's it, nice and simple. All you need to remember is the spec of the frame work and your golden, try it yourself, build your favourite skin and maybe use it as your home! Have fun.
