This is a tutorial on how to make a sphere in Minecraft using nothing but Microsoft Paint ( and of course Minecraft ). This tutorial will work for spheres of any size, and although its not perfectly accurate, no-one will be able to tell. Make a near perfect sphere in a few simple steps. Note: Spheres of an even diameter would be done slightly differently in the first two steps.

##### Step 1

You should already know where the center of your sphere is going to be and how big you want it to be. If not, why? Place a block where the center of your sphere is going to be. On each side of the center place a line of blocks until the shape you made is the same size as the sphere you want. The length of the line you made should be the same on each side.

##### Step 2

Open Microsoft Paint. Select the Oval located in the Shapes section and change the size of the brush to the smallest setting possible. Draw a circle with the same size as the sphere you want to make. If you have to, and I suggest you do, zoom in as much as possible to draw and see the details of the circle you've drawn. Because of the inaccuracy of Paint, the circle would not be the same on all sides, so only use the bottom-right hand corner when building in-game.

##### Step 3

Using the lines built in Step 1, between every axis and its neighbors, build the bottom-right hand corner of the circle made in Step 2. In the end there should be a circle lain on the x, y, and z axes.

##### Step 4

On every axis coming from the center there should be a cross coming from every block on that axis ( imagine that the block between the circles and axes are filled in ). Chose one of those axes. Go to the cross coming out from the outermost block on the axis and measure the size of it. Go into Paint and create another circle of the same size. Using the bottom-right hand corner of that circle, build a circle around the block that the cross of centered on. The circle should be the same size as the cross, if not, the size of the circle you made is off. Go to the cross at the end of every axis and make the same circle around it.

##### Step 5

This Step is very similar to Step 4. Start at the end of each axis, excluding the block you just built a circle around, and move inwards toward the center. Measure the size of the cross that would be made from that block and the circles made around it. Go into Paint and draw a circle of the same size. Build that circle centered around the cross you got the size from using only the bottom-right corner of the circle in Paint. Build that same circle around every cross that has the same size of that circle ( there should be one on every axis ). Repeat moving block-to-block towards the center. Stop when the circles start to intersect, you should not build a circle if it is going to intersect a circle from another axis, unless it's the same size.

##### Step 6

You should have eight holes, one at every corner of the sphere. Every block that the hole takes up should not be adjacent to any blocks that already exists. Diagonal to every existing block ( not including the ones made in this step ). ( The black wool are the blocks that would have been places in this step ).

Now you have a near-perfect sphere that you can show off to all your easily impressed buddies and to use in all of your sphere needing projects. Now you don't have to go through the hassle of opening MCEdit or any other external program ( other than Microsoft Paint ) or download any mods whenever you need a sphere in one of your projects. If your sphere is over 50 blocks wide, then this tutorial might have been a waste of time and MCEdit might have been better.
