I think he didn't exactly recolor it either, he selected it and played with the balance colors, thus that means he filtered the skin, which is also unacceptable.
So yeah HerrDave, I'm sorry, but this is far too simply to make and generally not accepted in THW. The person who requested it could still use it though.

Be that as it may, I tell you I am a user of gimp. So tell me, how would I go about fully re-skinning when one of my most useful tools is locked away from me?

The skin is supposed to be simple, that is what was requested of me. If you want any specific changes than by all means do as Vermillion did and speak up! Bollocks on a biscuit, man.

I know it doesn't look great, I made the damn thing :D But make suggestions and so on that'll help the model stay on, as opposed to just up and saying 'This sucks, it'll be gone by dawn.'

You have a whole 2D art section for that, man!CLICK MEH MEH TOO(Personally, I mostly like the tutorial of Mr.Goblin as he covers a wide range of necessary skills).
There are tutorials, suggestions, rules, which you need to learn/know before doing a skin. I've personally found it more time consuming to make a decent skin than a model, and I've been around a long time to test everything.
I thought you've been through the forums before posting the skin, thus found it sufficient to only mention it that it's unacceptable, by Hive standards.
Making skins takes artistic skills and a considerate amount of time on your hands, I know this, for I too have posted 'lame' skins. (I even tried hard at reskining some of them, I guess I simply suck in art).
Oh and psst, why use gimp when you can use Photoshop?, I find gimp unnecessarily complicating.

Point taken and well spoken. I see what you mean with the skinning and modeling as well. I use Gimp 2 because 'tis the poor man's photoshop. Also I am a stubborn brick of a sod so changing what I'm using is as hard as swimming through an Olympic pool of honey.

Thanks for the links as well, Knight26, long may your name and deeds be sung of far and wide.

Well, who doesn't want to strut around half-naked completely open to but not limited to bludgeoning, scraping, chafing, burning, chemical burning, falling up, hunchback, lazy-eye, flat tires, flat chest, low blood sugar, unusually high blood sugar, orcs that'll attack you for your jewelry, random combustion, unfortunate sinkholes, etc etc.
