What is the Old Man Minecraft skin?

What is the Old Man skin like?
This skin is another entry into the ‘derp’ category of Minecraft skins. It has a random silly face, odd outfit and even some silly details here in there. I’d definitely put this skin in the ‘humour’ pile.
The skin’s big and bold outfit is probably the first thing you’ll notice. The older gentleman depicted in the skin has been given a bright purple turtleneck sweater, along with super high waisted jeans. The detail of having the jeans up so high is a nice touch, as is the neck of the sweater coming up to the head area of the skin. It’s a clever use of space and the skin in general extends upward more than most skins usually do.
The facial features are basic to say the least, with the facial structure resembling the Minecraft pig skin due to the eyes facing different directions and the wide amount of space in between them. The mouth is a bold black horizontal line and the top of the skin’s head is adorned with a thick white monobrow.
I do wish there was more effort put into this section. The composition is good and it certainly delivers with its random humour, but the lack of shading or of a wider colour palette makes this section of the skin stand out compared to the rest.
In general, the art style is very faithful to vanilla Minecraft. Like the aforementioned similarities to the skin used for Minecraft pigs, this skin uses an art style that is very reminiscent of other textures found within the game. I’ve always appreciated skins that can tow the line between original designs and keeping the style within the confines of Minecraft’s blocky aesthetic.
The minor details also put this skin above many others, as the creator has used the top layers to create a puffy quality for the sleeves and neck. The skin is also meant for the slim skin model which helps to reinforce the idea of an older person’s frame and assists in evoking more elderly characteristics.
