Thank you!
Well I use Photoshop to change the textures: all you need to do is to open the folder of the model and then choose and edit the texture you want.

sorry i don't have gimp, but i think it's the same as photoshop: use the tools to edit the color of the textures and press f8 in xnalara to see the changes in real time.

You just have to take the file you want to change, fix it as you wish, and finally save it overwriting the original.
The texture files usually end with "DIFFUSE": for example "face_diffuse, body_diffuse, eyes_diffuse etc..."
It's quite easy, ask if you don't understand.

Wow, this looks really cool! I really love purple, so it's kinda neat seeing Lightning with that color hair c:
I do not know how renders like this work, and I am sure they are very hard, but I do know a thing or two on color schemes and I have just a little bit of advice for you, but you can of course take it or leave it c:

When it comes to colors, after you really examine characters, you find they usually only have three to four main colors and that they can usually be sorted into a warm set or cool set (warm sets have colors like reds, oranges, yellows, and browns while cool sets are blues, greens, and purples). Lightning's original set would be something along pink, white, beige, and red, with of course a few different hues in-between, making it rather warm, and most of her color scheme is rather muted save for darker colors and her cape. The color edits you have made here sort of clash when all put together, in my opinion.

The main colors you have associated with this Violet Lightning are Violet, Blue, Blue-Violet, Maroon, Teal, Green, and Black and Gray with a gold accent in her necklace. You used many colors, and all of these colors are very strong and vibrant and clash between awkward warm amongst cool colors, which don't really complement each other, or compliment Lightning very well. Since you chose Violet for her hair I would call that her main focus color, and you should really have kept it to two or three more colors that complemented that shade of Violet. For example, you can't really mix the Blue-Violet sleeve with hair that purple, cape that navy, or jacket that red, it all just doesn't blend very well to the eye. Also, when pairing reds and blues you have to be careful that they don't conflict, and there's another issue between color relationships with her red jacket, blue cape, and teal shirt. And I felt her green bag was a rather random and ill fitting choice.

I suggest in the future you try to limit your main color scheme to four colors max, make sure they look good together and play around with hues and values to find an attractive combination that works as an overall cool or warm set, and if doing a recolor like this one, pay attention to the original color scheme and try to use your new scheme to fill in the same pieces as a guide to achieving over all balance c:

Keep up the editing, you're doing a really great job c:

Thank you so much for the comment! :hug:

You're right, I'm not really good at coloring models, and when I do it I take the first color that comes in mind; I don't associate anything, as it was random, with no sense.
There are too many colours here, as you said, there is not a connection but next time I'll try to use less colours, and different kind of colours not as strong as those.

One thing is sure: I won't became a stylist!
