What Lies Beneath by Drekinn77 What Lies Beneath by Drekinn77
Minecraft explained.

--
The aim of this image was to basically summarise Minecraft in one scene - I believe I've succeeded. :D
It also coincides nicely with the official full 1.0 release of Minecraft, occurring on this very day. Congrats Notch, and thank you for such an inspired game!
I've had the most fun ever making this toon, and would love to hear your feedback. :)

I love the artwork here! it's unsurprising that you'll be killed underground though, but it really shows that on the surface is really safe and down in the bottom, is basically like the nether, torture. I don't really have anything bad to say about this, But some minecraft logic: Caves are deep underground. But I like it a lot. You really did a good job on this, it's expresses: Minecraft itself. The things that I find interesting was the chicken that found a hole to that cave/dungeon. Only one question is asked from me, has the player been down there before, or he just started playing on a multiplayer server? But anyways, keep up the good job! Have a good day!
What do you think?

I believe it took several days, though my current day MineToons can take up to as long as four weeks (as they're more detailed). Ugh. :O_o:

In Minecraft or in real life? To prepare for the latter I've been busily crafting together makeshift iron golems from old cardboard boxes. I just hope they don't collapse under the weight of the pumpkins.

I haven't played for a while, but when I do I like to build big. One of my previous projects was a giant Steve wielding a pickaxe, with his trusty wolf pet by his side. Your ocean house idea is a clever one. :)

I choked on my toast because of you! I never really thought of this picture this way in minecraft. In minecraft, you find a good place to start your new world and life but then face the horrors of the undead, green penises, and spiders bigger than your breadbox.

I agree it's quite gruesome, but that was my earliest impression of Minecraft when I first played it two years ago; it's certainly tamed somewhat since.

I'm no fan of the recent sound changes; in fact, it stopped me playing Minecraft altogether. I'm seriously hoping sound packs will be introduced very soon.

I thought that was intentional

I was wondering.. maybe we could play minecraft together sometime? My old group of minecraft friends seems to have lost interest, so at the moment I'm stuck playing on random servers with strangers.. It would be nice to play with someone I know once again :D
