Top 5 Minecraft fan art pieces from Reddit in April 2021
#1 - Nether mob redesign
Talented artist and Minecraft player u/Slartibartghast_II posted a few Nether mobs to the subreddit yesterday. These mobs were drawn in a realistic, yet cartoonish style. u/Slartibartghast_II added small details and personified the expressions of these mobs to draw out emotions.
The Nether mobs featured here are ghasts, blazes, and a strider. It's very interesting to get the artist's impression of these Nether mobs. Especially the Blaze since it barely resembles its original pixelated form.
#2 - Baby mooshroom
The fur was clear and easy to see as if the viewer could reach out and pet the mooshroom. The mooshroom's expression is plain similar to that of a real-life cow.
The artist u/idkthewords creates art posts regularly for Reddit, some Minecraft related and others not so much, regardless, check out their account. Here is a link to the original Baby Mooshroom post.
#3 - Mob Doodles
Minecraft fan and artist u/cabbagegunk decided to post a few of their doodles to the Minecraft subreddit over the past week. Despite u/cabbagegunk claiming these to be doodles, it's clear they're much more.
The artwork features an enderman carrying a dirt block, a yellow-colored mooshroom, and a piglin. The cow could even be considered a flower cow since it seems to grow flowers out of the side of its back.
#4 - 3D Bees
Most Minecraft artists only stick to 2D art but not u/Gshelle140. This artist created a 3D hot glue and perler beads sculpture of a few Minecraft bees. This post went up on the Minecraft subreddit yesterday, and since then has gained quite a few likes within the community.
Many viewers were confused as to how u/Gshelle140 was able to create this sculpture, but gauging from the comments, it only really involved some hot glue and a few perler beads.
#5 - Real life bookshelf
Similar to the previous post, Minecraft fan and artist u/liamoco123 created a 3D real-life Minecraft-themed bookshelf block. u/liamoco123 used 1280 small colored pieces of wood and arranged them in a way to copy the original Minecraft bookshelf texture.
The bookshelf is so accurate it looks like it has jumped out of Minecraft and into the real world. It's unknown how long it took u/liamoco123 to create this work of art, but it's assumed it wasn't an easy or quick process.
