Few Things you need:
1. Image editing program (Photoshop ex)
2. GCFscape or a program like that.
3. A VTF Plug-in
- If you have photoshop you should get this Plug-in, readme in the archive.
- Paint.NET users need this instead
- Gimp users need this
4. VTFedit if you can't get your plug-in to work.

Go to your SteamApps folder in your Steam directory, then Common, then Counter-Strike Source, then cstrike. Double click on 'cstrike\_pak\_dir.vpk'. Now you will see the root directory. Click on that. Then "Matrials>Models>Weapons or player".
(In weapons: v\_models is Player view - w\_models is: World view)
Select player model, click and hold the VTF file and drag it to its target directory, see the image for an example for the M4A1.
Select weapon in the V_models folder. When you're done, hold and drag the .VTF file to its target destination.
If you have installed the VTF plug-in, you can open the .VTF file, and edit it, after that save it.
If you don't have the plug-in, use VTFEdit to convert the file by double clicking the file.
Now you opened it. Then File > Export > Choose Folder. Now the .VTF file is a TGA file and you can edit it in ALL image programs, when finish editing, save file. Go into VTFedit again, then: File > Import > Find and select your file > OK. Now you should see something Gfx options or something. You just click OK again. After that, do: File > Save..
Done, now you made your own skin.
