    Hey guys. I decided since I have nothing better to do with my life that I would start doing Pixel Art in MineCraft. [​IMG]

    I wanted to share all of my work with you and I hope you enjoy it. Also feel free to share and of your own pixel art if you like.

    I guess it could be.

    But since it is a video game I figured it could be in video game discussions.

    Those are awesome!

    I don't consider it threadjacking I welcomed other people's art. [​IMG]

    Lol a Companion Cube would be great. [​IMG]

    I am doing Super Meat Boy and another secret one as well. [​IMG]

    May not be on here for a bit so the update will come later tonight.

    Also, @ThePeon, you have to have an incrediable amount of patience, an eye for detail, and a hour+ of free time.

    Did I mention you need s sprite/image? Although that is obvious lol.

    All I do is download a sprite sheet, and find the sprite I want.

    I go into Photoshop (or GIMP) and add a temporary layer to the image, a grid over each pixel, you see.

    Then I look at what colors are available in the MineCraft palette, and then I start from bottom up placing said blocks on the ground.

    It's a simple concept, although it is a pain in the ass to do.

    you could work just it out on paper since its just cubes, makes schematics for your project in another words then follow them when building it

    @ Joe88 that works too. I find the GIMP/PS grid method easier, even if it is a scanned image I drew myself I hate drawing grids.

    Here is a screencap of me in action:

    Dreamland.
    I forget, what was that one program you can use to make pixel art?

    And this may sound weird, but is there pink in minecraft?
