DISCLAIMER: The art style for the characters is heavily inspired by the artist who makes the characters for the "Minecraft Earth: Biome Vote" videoes. I have been unable to find a name on the artist, which is why they have not been credited. I am still looking for a confirmed name, and will credit them in the post asap. Thank you for understanding.

UPDATE! (05/09/2020)
We did it! We have completed the first batch of 50 characters for the PMC Group picture! Which means we will now begin refining the first picture, and then start work on the second group picture. We expect to begin progress on the second group picture around November-December. The reason for this is that I have a few projects that I want to complete before moving on to the second group picture :)

Hello there!

As the title of this post suggest, then yes! Welcome to the PlanetMinecraft Group picture!
Quick background-story that you can skip if you want to:
- Nearly a year ago I actually tried doing one of these group pictures. However, I failed because I completely underestimated, just how much work actually goes into creating over 50 different characters. But, one to not be deterred by failure, I am back, this time with a lot more knowledge and thought put into how I should go about this.


How does this work?
- Me and Wolf_with_Scarf have estimated that there should be space for around 50 people in the first picture I have made. If this is a success, then I will create more pictures for more people in the future. The way it works it quite simple: You simply have to post a link, picture, or your IGN (In game name) in the comments below, and then I'll write your name down, draw your character, and add them to the group picture.

Be sure to read the "How to Not be included" section - Just to make sure that you get the best chances of your character being included!


How to be included:
- Leave a comment below this post with your IGN (In Game name), or a picture / link with the character you want to represent you in the picture itself.


How to NOT be included:
- I learned from last time, that there are certain kinds of characters that have stuff that is too hard to draw well, that it ultimately ends up looking really, really bad. I would prefer if your character does not have the characteristics mentioned in the spoiler below this section.
- The reason for not drawing characters with certain characteristics is because of 2 reason:
1. I'm a decent pixel-art creator, but I struggle immensely with creating detailing without any sort of reference picture to follow.
2. It always ends up looking horrible, and can really destroy a character. You can have a beautiful character, and it will just look horrible when I draw it :'D

Characteristics we can't draw


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Plan for the future:
- Okay so a plan for the future is actually being made, and here are the points which we know are going to happen!
1. There will be between 4-5 pictures (Thanks to Yuki for the suggestion (ps. Sorry for not giving you credit before))
2. Each picture will have space for between 50-60 players in total.
3. A resource-pack with the stone, grass, wood etc. textures is in the makings.
4. A blog post keeping track of all the pictures and characters is in the making and is expected to be released once the first picture is complete.

- And now here are some ideas for the future, but beware - !THESE ARE JUST IDEAS, THEY WILL MOST LIKELY NOT HAPPEN!
1. Create 'merch' in the form of an A3 poster of the completed picture (Needs a lot more research than just being an idea)
2. Extending the picture upwards or beyond the Nether and into The End.

The second picture will also be done in this forum post to avoid having multiple posts about the same thing. So if you submit your skin and name here, then you will be included on the wait-list to be in either the second or third group picture, because we're running out of space on the second one :'D

The second group picture will see characters being added around November-December. This is because this group picture is sort of a side-project / hobby of mine that me and Wolf do for fun. Aka. Progress is slow because this is not the first priority project :p

As the "UPDATE! (13/08/2020)" says:
This whole project will continue in this same forum post, however we are nearing 50 characters which is the benchmark for when I'll take a break from doing characters and instead switch focus to adding mobs, items, extra details, and basically just refining the whole picture so that it looks more interesting :)

If you read the: "Plan for the future:" section, then you'll see it says:
1. There will be between 4-5 pictures
2. Each picture will have space for between 50-60 players in total.

So this is the first group picture. The total should, depending on how many people want to be on it, end up somewhere between 4-5 pictures of the same seize and same style. Each picture will be connected to that we can one day create a full seized poster out of it :p

I have a list where I keep track of everyone that has entered their name in this post, and looking at it, then you'll be included in the second group picture ;p
Im not really sure when I'll start working on it, mainly because I gotta refine and finish up the detailing, mobs, etc. on this first picture before I can move on to the next one.
