Craft Boy Poster Vanilla by RoryDoona Craft Boy Poster Vanilla by RoryDoona
I've spent way too long on this painting now! Here's why:

I started it as a Minecraft fan art but as it evolved, it changed into something a bit different.

I started coming up with a story idea based around it's central character, I think I'm going to call him Craft Boy. As the story expanded in my head, so did the contents of the picture and I ended changing bits that I spent ages working on.

As it evolved I was recording it using fraps hoping to make a timelapse video of it, but I'm still getting used to making good quality "artcasts" and kinda messed up the recording of this one up a bit... still if you want to see my future videos please subscribe to my channel on [link]

So Craft Boy has kinda become it's own little story project now, I'll try to keep adding bit here on deviantart and also on here on [link]

I'm having problems finding work at the moment and this is a labour of love so it could be quite a while between updates but I'm looking forward to expanding and sharing the universe and more details about the story.

If you think it looks like a good idea please give it a share with your friends, if enough people are into it I'll keep working on it.

Don't hesitate to drop me a comment with your feedback,
Rory

You should try at least - If you don't like it try something different. But if you pass that opportunity you will pass the opportunity of maybe becoming famous or just generally doing a job for something you love.

Its ok, I know what you mean, but animation is a very demanding full time job, most animators don't have time to work on their own projects. I'm looking for ways to find a balance between work for pay and personal projects.

Truly sublime presentation, Rory. I especially love the shard of daylight streaking down from the overworld, and, of course, the entire composition, its colours and exquisite details are a delightful wonder to behold. Superb work. :) I look forward to the ongoing story. :nod:

This is SOOO majestic! I love the ruins in the background. The picture is cool and very detailed, I wish I could draw that good on a computer! :D I wish I could draw on a computer altogether. Honestly, I haven't even tried in years

Wow this looks amazing. And looking at this i would say this could come out with a really epic well thought story behind it. If this does get enough people into this i would really like to see what comes out, and i would deftly fallow you for it. i would help but show this to my friend but most of them don't have a deviant art account as of right now but i believe they would find this awesome to watch even if they can really comment or favorite it.

Very nice. In spite of how it evolved, I think it still just screams "Minecraft". Really unique though, keep it up. ^_^

Thanks Howls! Yeah I guess it's definitely still very Minecraft, I was thinking of creating 3 new costumes for Craft Boy and seeing which one people like best, like get them to vote on them.
