As a budding artist, I’ve always loved dancing in Minecraft, especially its jungle-inspired aesthetic.
But I had always wanted to do something a little more sophisticated.
So I built a custom monkey from scratch, and that was the start of my long journey to creating my own custom dance monkey.
The next step was figuring out how to paint the head and body.
I had some great ideas but couldn’t come up with the right materials, so I decided to try painting a custom face for it.
It worked well enough, but then I got really lazy and did it just to paint a custom head.
So the next step would be to figure out how do I make it look realistic and cool.
And the best part is that the next steps were much easier.
The head and torso are completely hand-painted, so you just paint on the model and let the painting take care of the rest.
That’s why it’s so much easier to paint custom heads and body parts.
I’ve never done it in any of my other games, but I love it in Minecraft.
The rest of the head is mostly a paint job, and I used an assortment of tools to do a lot of different things.
For the eyes, I made them using the same tools that I use for hair.
I used a little brush to paint on different shades of blue, yellow, green, and brown.
I then applied the blue and yellow for the eyes to create a unique look for them.
Then I used the green and brown for the mouth and nostrils.
I also used a small toothbrush to paint around the corners and around the eyes.
I found it really easy to get a good, smooth paint job on my face, and then it took just a few hours to finish.
For eyes, you start by getting a couple different colors to paint them with.
I tried to paint all the eyes with just one color.
I think that it would look better if I used different colors for different parts of the eyes because that way I could easily see which colors I need to apply to them.
So to make the eyes look realistic, I painted them with a mixture of different colors, then added more to them by using a mix of black and white.
Finally, I applied a couple of light and dark shades of white to create the shape of the face.
I took the eyes and painted them to match the rest of my skin color.
Then to add the eyes that would look like an eyesore, I put a little bit of white on them and used a toothbrush or a brush to create some eyeshadow.
For this head, I used white as the base color and black as the final color.
For my torso, I did a lot more painting than I had ever done before.
I decided that I wanted to paint it to look more like a custom body.
So first I painted the body with a mix between black and blue.
Then with the brown and green.
Then a little yellow to add a little texture.
Then the rest was black and green, white, and black.
This head turned out really well, and it looks much more realistic.
I really enjoyed doing this head because it really adds a lot to the character of the player.
For a few weeks after I finished my head, the game didn’t have any custom heads, so it was time to figure how to make a custom torso.
I was looking at all of the custom heads I had made, and most of them were just plain bad.
So it was just a matter of making a head that was really unique and had all the best parts I wanted.
To create the new torso, my next step involved a lot less paint and a lot fewer tools.
I simply just painted on the head with a simple brush.
Then after that I used some paintbrushes to add some detail to the eyes of the new body.
Once I had done that, I just used a bit of paintbrush to add an eye to the body, which is a good sign because now the eyes are not just a simple texture, they actually look a little different from the rest!
The body was then painted using the exact same paint scheme as the head, but with a little touch of green to add more contrast to the black eyes.
Once the body was done, I had a very simple head, with a lot going on.
But that was enough for me to start my journey to designing a custom dance-like creature!
So what do you think of this custom dance?
Would you ever create your very own custom dancer in Minecraft?
