Hi Amil,

Here is a good place to start: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Clothing_Tutorials

Don't be fooled by the title.  Clothing templates and skin templates are virtually the same.  You will find links to templates in that article.

Good luck!

In addition to the excellent link Cinn provided, i would suggest you take a look here and download the psd files for Eli Eloh's skins that she released full perm for the use of everyone subject to certain provisos. The quality and realism of the current generation of second life skins has improved considerably since these were created and subsequently released but these files will give you a good understanding on how to go about creating  skins, the various layers and how to organise them, although you can of  course decide to do things differently and create your own method but  either way you need to be extremely organised. The actual skins are available inworld.

If you are using GIMP and not Photoshop, please note GIMP can open psd files.
