Welcome to the Cib Corner, my own personal nook in the many crannies of the internet. The purpose of this series is to showcase the creativity of the Planet Minecraft community by celebrating the members that have contributed to the community or have achieved feats that continue to amaze and inspire others. So sit back, kick your legs up and read on!


This month, I was lucky enough to have the chance to interview none other than experienced organics builder, Roman_95. Known mostly for his creations of teeth and claw, Roman has posted a large variety of works including spaceships, artillery and a large array of vehicles.

Before I begun the interview itself, I asked Roman to properly introduce himself and explain a bit about himself (and so I could take my mind off the dragon waiting outside the door).

"My name is Roman. I am 23 years old. I like Dragons and heavy music. I mostly like Rock, Metal and their subgenres and sometimes Dubstep or Dark Industrial Electronic. I actually spent about a year practicing how to create music."

Roman continues, explaining how he came to find the game and how one little discovery became a passionate hobby.

"It all started about 4 years ago when I was introduced to Minecraft by my friend. I
f not for him, then I would not be where I am today. I started with 2D sculptures. I built
them block by block and the final result suited me.They were small (from
20 to 50 blocks in height). A few weeks later, it was not enough for
me and so I started building 3D sculptures. I did not see any guides on
the construction of Dragons or the construction of sculptures in
general so I was self-taught."

"When I began creating 3D sculptures, the dimensions of 3D and 2D sculptures were the same. 50 blocks height? Not enough. Need more! But I soon realized that building a sculpture block by
block with big dimensions was difficult and took a very long time to make.

I needed help. I learned about mods such as Voxelsniper and Worldedit. I
started using them and I started to improve. But there was a
big problem. My PC was not powerful and the game lagged. After
using these mods, I learned about MCEdit... And began a new
era of construction that continues to this date. My one, not so powerful PC coped
well with the editor, not perfect but much better than the game. Two years passed using the editor. I studied it 100%. By this time, I had bought a more powerful PC, but I still used the editor. Why? Because I'm terribly used to it. But small details sometimes have to be done in the
game itself."

Question Time

On September 11 2017, Roman created his account on Planet Minecraft. His first project, The Dragon, instantly received a great response from the community.

Q. Why did you join PMC?
A. For a long time I created sculptures only for myself. And one day I wanted to share one sculpture. That's how I appeared on PMC.

Q. Did you have any goals and if so, have you achieved any of them?
A. No, I do not have specific goals. All achievements and events happen by
themselves. For example 300 subs, interview for Minecraft.net, this
interview. All this motivates me very much, it reminds me
that I am doing good things and I need to continue

Q. What inspired you or helped you to grow?
A. I draw inspiration mainly on the Internet. It can be randomly found
pictures or video. But mostly pictures are a source of inspiration.
Despite the fact that I really like Dragons, I do not use the first
picture I get. I have a very strict choice. I can make a project on one
picture or combine two pictures into one project. In addition to the
Internet, I can generate something in my head. I can also find
inspiration in real life.

Q. Do you have any interests or hobbies aside from your building endeavors?
A. I had one or two years of practice in making music. I have a Soundcloud page.The last song was uploaded 4 years ago. Sometimes I draw on paper.

Q. To date, which project did you most enjoy working on/creating?
A. There isn't one particular project. The projects I liked working on most of all were:
"Allosaurus", "Acrocanthosaurus", "Huge fantasy Dragon", "Dragon on
skyscraper", "The Dragoness", "Come to me into hell". For many reasons. Most
of all I liked working on the colors of these projects, this is the
common main reason.

Q. Do you have any advice for members out there who may be interested in following in your footsteps?
A. Think whether you're interested in it. If you are, build something that you
really like, because you only get the pleasure from the construction

And that concludes the interview! After thanking Roman_95 for his time, we part ways and I walk away with my fingers crossed, hoping nothing will eat me.

good interview! and with a Great interviewed person :)

I remember how I came across his first dragon organic, I was like OMFG this is it, the maestro of dragon organics. I have seen many before, not so many of them well done, but there have been great ones, but Roman_95 brought it into a whole new level of perfection, at least for my taste on dragon proportions etc.

I recall how his first projects have been flaged and reported as fakes, 3rd party app auto-creations from imported files etc.

Oh yeah, He got some insane talent, especialy when one realizes he is using merely just MCEdit, and can bring forth such masterpieces in damn quick times... that's simply spectacular! O_o

huge Thumbs up!

Thanks! I've been apart of the Minecraft community for what feels like ages but I still find myself constantly being blown away by how creative and ingenious everyone can be. I'm looking forward to posting the next blog.

Very accurately said "New level". I saw dragons published a few years ago. Such dragons could surprise people few years ago, but not today. If I make a dragon in the same style, then I guarantee that he will not collect 60 diamonds for the same number of years.

Congratulations on an engaging interview Cib! And Thanks Roman_95 for sharing your journey. It was heartening to hear the way you came to Minecraft. It makes the celebration of your amazing work all the more deserved! "Self Taught" can be so frustratingly rewarding...No? xD
Well Done Guys!! I'll be looking forward to reading more on Cib Corner :D
