Level 44 : Master Artist
Every creator needs a platform to share his or her art and ideas. When it comes to creations in the Minecraft community, Planet Minecraft is the go-to site for that exact purpose.

I stumbled upon Planet Minecraft at just the right time in my life. It was the summer of 2012 and I was an avid fan of Minecraft looking for a skin to pimp out my Minecraft character.

Young Foli was in awe at how these talented individuals could place pixels in such an artistic manner and could make something so beautiful with… pixels! I quickly clicked on a skin of Solid Snake made by former user “Leostereo” and applied it to my character.

These proficient skinners inspired me to jump on the skin-making train and within a couple weeks, I decided it was time to make my own creations!
I’m gonna be honest, my first couple of skins were and still are by today’s standards, utter garbage.

I saw my skins achieving only 3 diamonds at most. However, this didn’t discourage me. I quickly hovered my mouse over to the Blogs section of PMC to look for some skinning tips and tutorials and I was amazed to discover a whole other side of the community.

The Blogs section was full of detailed tutorials and articles, creative and captivating stories! I could stay for hours on this section reading all the interesting texts people came up with.

As some of you may know, I’ve always loved drawing. It’s one of my biggest passions and I just couldn’t show my true artistic potential by being limited to these low-res pixelated skins!

This is when the Art and Comics section came in to play. This is where I could shine. This is the place where I can share my ideas freely! I couldn’t skin, I couldn’t build and I sure as heck couldn’t mod! But thankfully, Planet Minecraft is a home for all types of creators.

What makes me a Minecrafter?

The answer is simple: it’s the continuing creativity that the community has.
Each day I am blown away by some of the creations people make. One day I’ll see a build that’s a 1:1 replica of the city of Los Angeles and I think to myself:

And by next week I’ll have already seen another jaw-dropping build that's better than the last build I saw.

I am glad to be a Minecrafter when I know I’m part of such a creative community full of brilliant individuals who will consistently amaze me with their ingenious creativity.

With love,
