osuskinner.com is a place to create and discover awesome osu skins that will make you more succesfull in the game. osu! is a freeware rhythm game developed and published by Australia-based company Ppy Pty Ltd, led by Dean Herbert. This website is fan-made and not affiliated with osu! in any way.

In 2015, when I've learned how to play this game, something was specific for me: "I couldn't play this game with default skin anymore". But wait... "How can I change a skin?" I didn't know anything about that. I've downloaded and tested several skins on osu Skinning Forums. There was a lot of good skins, but also each skins had different bad parts in my opinion and these parts was very distracting.

Then some day, I've noticed that there was a skins folder, so I could change skins! As a graphic designer, I told myself: "Finally! I can customize them as I want." When I've created my first custom skin I was totally adept the game and increase my rank quickly.

After meeting a few people in game someone suggested me a site for skinning and it was not working, unfortunately there wasn't any other alternatives. I've decided to make a skinning website that everyone can contribute.

Before I decided to create this website, I had no idea how to make a website. First, I learned HTML and CSS. It was cool but was not enough to create a working website that will users can contribute. Then, I started to learn PHP to make a real website. When I've learned PHP also I've noticed that the zip files can be create with PHP. This duration is almost took my one year.

It isn't possible to tell how I feel when I create my first skin in local version of website. Of course it wasn't works perfectly but I know it was the hardest and most valuable part for me because it was like first steps for my baby. However it was way more easier than copy-pasting, downloading between tons of skins.

Some of you know this, I've changed a lot of things compared to the first version. And I want to thank you all, for your supports and feedbacks. Now osuskinner is alive over a year. I've never expect making money on this website. Because I know that all elements on osuskinner made by different people and they sharing their works for free to use. osuskinner is just a tool which bring these works to you neatly.

Currently we showing ads in our website which is enough to pay server costs. Patreon page is just for the people who wants to hide ads and gain access new features in osuskinner. Also your support will enable me to continue to do the work I love, while also enabling me to hire other people to help me bring these projects to life.

I made every part of this site with love! (and a lot of caffeine)
My only wish is you'll love it too!

What a extremely well layout site, and I love the functionality of it. It must of taken you ages to write all of the JS.
Do you have any plan for custom user input like if someone wanted to use their own images instead of the image options you provide?

Thank you for the very kind comment :) Actually it took about 2 months. I used the PHP , Smarty , JS , jQuery, Less languages.

Yes, this is planned. Elements can be added by users in future relases.

Do you know what the most disrespectful thing with this project is?
Not even mentioning who designed these elements.
All these content creators get their stuff simply put into something without any consent from them. People like Garin, Pannari, Redon, Raflea, Azer, Quanteck, Soda, and many others don't even get any credits.

This project is not disrespectful. This is user-friendly ;)



Project is currently BETA, so creator names are not displayed for now. Soon all users can be see the who created the element. And elements can be added by users.

Some element creators aren't exist because skins mostly have same elements. How can i know which elements created by who? Do you have any idea for that?

If you see on this site your element. Tell me , i'll remove that immediately.

Sorry for my bad English.

I'm not saying that you should remove everything.
You should add visible credits somewhere on the page, giving proper credits to most of the creators.

Also don't add skins from any streamers to this since they use mostly mixed skins where no real credits are even given (like WubWoofWolf, HappyStick, or Doomsday) and are not skin creators.

Thank you, but I can not accept it. Because I just want to upload quality contents and who made known. Don't worry. You'll see a lot more content with the new system we developed.
