√You found new colours!
now, get one of default ct1,ct2,ct3,t1 (etc) skins.

Choose a style of ct1 skin: i will choose 2 handed always.
∗If you want to draw new style of your skin, you must FIRSTLY do it.
Now, replace your colours to normal ct1 skin..

√When you finish 1 model, copy them to others, and finish it.
Thats all

carloskiller:
you want shades, shadows right?
theres a black line on skeleton of skin, get colours like grey, dark grey and replace the lines near, ir will be a shadow

Im quite... let's say experienced with normal MS paint.
You can easily recolor colours of the same ID or Code in paint.

Use the eraser. First select the color with Eyedropper with left mouse button which you want to replace (in this case your green ct guy, click on the lightest colour possible) then click with Eyedropper with right mouse button on the colour you want to change it to. (click on the lightest blue colour in this case).

Now click and hold the right mouse button and erase all and only the green! This way you can recolor a WHOLE skin within just 15 seconds.

Want the eraser to be bigger? So you can change a larger area of colours at a time? Press CTRL + [+] (Plus sign on your NUMERIC keyboard) Hold it, your eraser block will grow larger, want it to be smaller again? Instead use the CTRL + [-] sign, (Minus sign).

There are some other tricks in paint too. Press CTRL + I to INVERT colors. You can also "trail an image" (which has a simple but funny effect) select a piece of a picture, press and hold SHIFT, now drag the selected area (While still holding the shift key), see what happens? The image is being copied in a trail you drag it to.

Hint: Did you know that older MS Paint only "Undo" up to three times? Newer paints, like MS (Vista/Windows 7] Paint "Undo" up to ten times. (Keep that in mind if you want to try things out, otherwise save often or make backups of old images you want to keep).

-Edit- Also this topic is not how you create Weapon/Player skins, this is how you recolor skins in a unsuitable way. (Or you can recolor by Hue, in any photoshop program, like freeware Gimp or Paint.net).
