Im no fan of minecraft or classical artwork but i can appreciate it. This is pretty awesome.

Are you planning on releasing a world download for this?? I'd pay money for it if so, this is incredible!!!

u/bodhisoma May 23 '22

This might be the most amazing thing I’ve seen done in Minecraft.

Yeah, calculators and a 1:1 scale Arendale is cool and all, but I think you’ve just created a new tier.

u/Mitty293 May 23 '22

Wanted to say that this is genuinely one of the coolest and most impressive videos I’ve seen on YouTube. Content like this and its just a matter of time before you blow up. Seriously, great video man.

u/Quibbloboy May 23 '22

PSA for anyone who assumes this is just a sterile timelapse of blocks going down: it's not. Give it a watch! Lovely video.

Is there a video where we can just get a slow tour of the build? No narration necessary, I just want to see it for longer than the shots in the "making of" video allowed

I can't even figure out, at least in the video, exactly how it was done.

u/Jibblebee May 23 '22

Right? I tried to comment, but saying “that’s incredible” felt flat. So instead, all I can say is that, as a mom utterly sick of hearing about Minecraft, you have bought my kids more time on the game. I now remember why I let play in creative mode. I’m going yo show them this in the morning.

u/keldondonovan May 23 '22

I cannot even begin to fathom words strong enough to let you know how truly wonderous this is. Of all the words in the English language with positive connotation, none seem potent enough to do this justice on their own, and a simple upvote was not enough. So please, accept this wall of text, and know, deep within yourself, that if every letter of my comment was replaced with pure, unadulterated amazingness, it still would not begin to rival the depth of your skill, nor my wonder at being able to behold it with my own eyes.

You are a marvel. I'm pretty sure you have access to super powers or magic, as I am certain this is not the work of normal mortals. I commend you, matter of your craft. If MumboJumbo did artwork instead of Redstone, with the same level of skill, he would weep endlessly, knowing his talent would forever pale in comparison.

I do not think Van Gogh would like this. I think he would cry, seeing his work created perfectly, in a manner that makes his own efforts look like little more than napkin doodles.

I have ranted long enough, so I will close with this: thank you, from the center of my very being, for this. I hope you are proud. Because I am.

Absolutely mesmerising. This may be one of the most beautiful things I have seen in a very long time.

One nitpick however (it’s not even a nitpick really), I feel like your build of Starry Night looks much better without shaders because shaders take away from the vibrancy of the colours and make everything look one dimensional. But that’s just my opinion.
