Minecraft

Welcome to the Minecraft deviantART group! We welcome all Minecraft-related artwork submissions, provided they're placed in the right folder. We hope you enjoy your stay here! :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. At night monsters come out, make sure to build a shelter before that happens. It also has music by c418.org/ . If you want to join our group, please leave a comment below stating that you would like to join! If you haven't bought Minecraft yet, head over to minecraft.net/ to buy it and play with friends!

Hey everyone,
It's that time of the year again! The time for egg nog, Christmas carols, bad jokes from crackers... well let's face it, most of us will be playing Minecraft instead. Keeping with last year's idea, we will be hosting a Minecraft competition for artwork. This year I hope to make the competition a little more organized (even though I did forget again, I'm terrible :S), so let's get the ground rules down:
:bulletgreen: Your artwork must be submitted into the 'Minecraft Christmas Competition 2014' folder
:bulletred: Your artwork must be submitted by the 25th of December (we will allow some extra time for late submitters, but don't count on it!)
:bulletgreen: Your artwork must be Minecraft related AND Christmas related (last year we had some people who gave in non-Christmas related artwork which sadly wasn't accepted because it didn't meet the requirement)
:bulletred: Your artwork must be AWESOME. How else will you win the competition? :)
:bulletgreen: To claim your prize if you win, you must own a Steam account
:bulletred: There is no limit to the amount of entries you can make into the competition

Now, onto the part that everyone looks forward to: the prizes!
:bulletgreen: 1st Place: 1 Bastion Steam Key, and a spot on the voting panel for next year's competition!
:bulletred: 2nd Place: 1 FEZ Steam Key
:bulletgreen: 3rd Place: 1 Binding of Isaac + Wrath of the Lamb Steam Key

Here are some tips on what to do when creating your artwork:
:bulletred: Visual artwork is preferred over other artwork such as fan fiction, but don't let that discourage you. If you are more of an author than an artist, create a written piece! It's not a rule that visual artwork will win :)
:bulletgreen: The easier your artwork is to view, the more chance you have of winning (e.g. if you have a texture pack, make screenshots of it for us to see)
:bulletred: When it comes to artwork, quality beats quantity
:bulletgreen: If you take a look at last year's winners, you'll notice that they not only are themed as Christmas, but they FEEL like Christmas.

Steve's Christmas Cabin by LockRikard

Forgive my unprofessional description, but LockRikard's 'Steve Christmas Cabin' felt so home-y, warm, and cozy (I can practically feel the heat coming from the log fire!) I couldn't resist voting for it, it just really captured what Christmas feels like.

This year we are hoping to have the results of the top 3 by the 31st of December IDEALLY. Christmas miracles can happen, but there are no guarantees, so cross your fingers. That's pretty much all I have to say about this year's competition, if you have any questions about the competition that I haven't answered let me know in the comments below, as well as your hopes for this years competition. For now though, let the Minecraft Christmas Competition 2014 commence!

EDIT: The folder is now live, so you can start submitting already!
Hey Guys,

It's been a while since the last post (half a year!), so I thought I might as well let you know how things are going.

We're slowly getting more and more popular, as I'm seeing more and more artwork submitted everyday. This is great to see, let's keep up with the awesome art everyone! Most people have also gotten the hang of the folder system, which is great to see to. It just helps keep things tidier and easier for someone to access a specific type of art they might like in particular, or if they're looking for inspiration for their next big build.

That being said we still get a few submissions every day not going to a specific folder, which is a shame because it's the artist who doesn't get their work shown. It's really easy to submit to a folder, all you have to do is click on the folder that you want to submit to, and then press the 'Submit to This Folder' button. Some people do know how to submit to a folder but submit to the wrong one, and that's perfectly fine because sometimes you'll envision your artwork as something different to what other people see it as. The most common error we'll get is people submitting artwork to the 3D Block Art folder, when it actually belongs in the Digital Art folder. To help this I've changed the names of the Pixel Art folder to In-Game Pixel Art, and the 3D Block art folder to In-Game 3D Block Art. Hopefully this will help with the confusion!

Also 1.8 came out quite recently (the Bountiful update), featuring some awesome stuff such as a ton of new commands, ocean monuments, slime blocks, sponges, and banners. I think that the new commands are definitely going to help out map makers in particular, as command blocks are becoming more and more dynamic with every command they add for it to use. Sea Lanterns are going to be great, and I think they'll become the new Glowstone decoration-wise. Banners are probably my favourite part of the update, faction servers are going to absolutely love them! Another few of my favourites are the slime blocks and the return of sponges. It's great that we can finally have trampolines in Minecraft, and I always liked the use of sponges so hopefully they'll be a great resource to have. What do you all think of the new update? Give your thoughts in the comments, along with your favourite part of the update! Apart from that, keep up the great artwork everyone!

EDIT: I also forgot to mention that Minecraft has also been acquired by Microsoft recently for $2.5 billion dollars. It'll certainly be interesting to see what happens to the game over the next period of time, and what Microsoft will do with Minecraft (or not do).
