You should have a good concept on HTML and howto use CSS. You can make a skin without it but I'd imagine it wouldn't be very good nor easy...

You'd need:

-Image making skills. (Photoshop etc. if you intend to make your own images)
-XHTML skills. (To edit the templates and layout)
-CSS optional if you want to edit form colors etc. but you need to know the basic XHTML of calling a CSS class, which is used quite a bit in the template system.
-Good/excellent knowledge of which template affects where.

If you know those, you should be fine. The last point can be learnt by just playing around with the templates and that.

Re: What do i need to learn?

I have been wanting to get into doing some skins for vB also. I have been skinning for phpBB for a while so I should have the grasp of it quite quickly but my main drawback for now is going to be having somewhere to test my skins that I am working on. I do not plan on buying a vB license just to skin for the community Anyway I'm sure i'll find a webmaster with a test board they will let me use to test the themes I make. (heres hoping!) Anyway I will need to have a way of getting either the default vB3 theme or a similar free one in order to see the structure so that I can get started with skinning. Any suggestions on where to get this or recommend a good alternative to the default theme to begin working from to get to understand vB structure??
