When seeing this assignment, I was INSTANTLY drawn to it because of my experience with video games and how they have been my biggest creative outlet for much of my life. I wanted to do something related to Bob Ross somehow, so I found a Bob Ross inspired painting to recreate in Minecraft. I figured building with Minecraft’s typical limitations could make things a lot more difficult, so I went ahead and downloaded some mods to add in new blocks and mechanics into the game. It allowed me to build a much smaller scale, making things way more accurate. Slowly but surely I chipped away at blocks and added bits and pieces where they belonged and eventually came to a final product that I am VERY happy with.
It may not be completely accurate, and some proportions may be wrong, but ultimately, I can say with certainty that the bottom picture is clearly based on the top.
