Alright all you goblins, it's officially OCTOBER! *throws confetti* *toots a party horn*. If you're new here, you might not know (or maybe you've gotten the hint) that October is kind of a big deal around here. It's the month where we see a variety of fall and Halloween themed submissions and community contests from inktober, skintober, drawtober and our official fall event (stay tuned)! This all being said, you don't have to participate in anything at all, you can just enjoy seeing what the community comes up with during this spoopy season!

In this weekly we feature some blogs; one that has a short but fun Minecraft animation and the other that contains words of wisdom from one of our veteran members. We've also got some pumpkin skins, some horror adventure maps (including a Bedrock one!), a data pack and more! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Fall Reshade Contest Minecraft Skin
Alderleaf is hosting a skin reshade contest in celebration of the fall season! Your task is to reshade the skin you see above

Deadline: October 18

MisterGriimm is hosting a Minecraft Block themed event, Blocktober! Blocktober is an online event that is designed to challenge artists to create pieces that broaden their typical scope of work. It's a way to better yourself and try things that are outside the norm! It's very similar to Inktober, however, Blocktober is specifically for anything revolving around the block!

Pixel Art, Voxel Art, Blockbench 3D models, Minecraft builds are all fair game!!

DRAWTOBER✏️
If you're an artist and wish to partake in some sort of version of skintober or blocktober, we have great news! Etqtay and their friend created a steampunk themed prompt list for drawtober (also shown to the right)! So far, this is the only drawtober we've found, but if should give you a bit of inspiration if you have artists block, or just want something fun to do for the month of October!

STORYTOBER📚
Good news for all of you writers, too! pharaohbean is hosting a Storytober and the rules are much the same as drawtober and skintober. You have a prompt you write about each day! You can be as broad or as detailed as you want. See all of the details here!




⭐OTHER HIGHLIGHTS







ART GALLERY🎨

Earlier this week, Kirigiri shared a drawing they found in one of their sketchbooks. A beautiful bloomed flower with a falling petal, it happens to be one of their favorite works from themselves!

Meet lucky the hyena! This cute gray mammal was drawn by Arcaded and is one of their first ever OCs. We think she's absolutely adorable and love the green bandana around its neck!

Using 3D paint, Etqtay created this mesmerizing sunset eye.
icon
_simp's art of their new persona was shared in a wall post you can see here!

After finding a Drift skin, DoomDestroyer98 was inspired to create this render. They state in their wall post that "Minecraft, DOOM, and Fortnite have been my top 3 games in recent years".

This work of art took Pqlm 3 hours to create! They shared it in a blog post this week. We love this art style! You can check out more of their art blogs here!


MINECRAFT ANIMATION 🎥
Lycinadale shared their first post in 8 years and it's an animation of two characters , Essel and Darryn, who take an adventure underground to find places only rumored to exist. They travel through dark tunnels and stumble upon a creature they've never seen before - a creature that they suspect is very dangerous until Essel discovers its' weakness..

We'll admit, this is a suspenseful and very well done animation but we won't spoil anything. You'll have to watch the video in the submission to find out what happens!


WORDS OF WISDOM
TomConn
has been a member of PMC for 9 years and is sharing a few things he's learned during his time here in a blog post he titled "Box o' Thoughts".

Categories currently available:

  - Creating / Posting content
  - Interesting Life Observations
  - Questions from the Forums!

You'll definitely learn a thing or two if you read it!




FEATURED SKINS
PUMPKIN PEOPLE🎃
It's no surprise that we saw several seasonal skins this week - one of the top inspirations was the orange gourd commonly known as a pumpkin! If you ask us, we think Pumpkins are the mascot of October. Pumpkin flavored goodies, carving pumpkins for halloween, the COLOR of pumpkin. Here are some of the most perfect pumpkin skins of the patch from this week!

STAFF PICKS
We didn't want these skins to go unrecognized
Ice Angel Minecraft SkinHD Technoblade Minecraft Skin
It's clear that DragonsDungeon always likes challenging themselves - case in point is this skin, Ice Angel. ❄️ This skin uses different design elements that made for a difficult execution; the snowflake inspired wings and the antlers. Read all about how they executed this skin by reading the "Nerdy Details" in the submission!
After learning of Technoblade's situation, Campestral was inspired to show their support by creating an HD fanskin of him. It's incredibly detailed and one of the best Technoblade skins we've ever seen! Campestral included an awesome render in the submission so be sure to take a look!



FEATURED TEXTURE PACKS
We're not sure if you browse the texture pack section as much as we do, but it has been on fire lately! Take a peek here to see what we mean. From creative new tools to cute enderman and creeper plushies, the section is certainly worth a browse!

preview
One of our newest members Eveee_cx has made their grand entrance with a few popular pixel packs! Mushroom & Amethyst Tools replaces diamond, netherite and gold tools with two variants of mushroom themed tools and purple amethyst tools! Be sure to check out Evee's two elytra packs - Cloudy Elytra Wings and Frosted Elytra Wings!
Cepfeus's first submission rose in popularity this week and it's easy to see why! The pack completely overhauls the Warped forest with glowing mushrooms and a more neutral palette. The warped forest has a more "forest-y" feel to it while still feeling like it belongs in the Nether.

PMC IN THE PRESS
This grass looks so real, it's almost as if you can feel it just by looking at the image! NicoRTX's Realistic Grass pack is not only one of the most popular packs on the site right now, but it was also covered in an article by The Gamer!

Better yet, Nico posted their pack in the Minecraft Subreddit where it went viral, earning over 23,000 upvotes and acquiring 500 comments. Needless to say, this pack is a hit wherever its discovered and rightfully so! Shaders are highly recommended for optimal experience.




FEATURED DATA PACK
Hydro Fury is a datapack by krossy_ The ExiIed FeIIow which adds a brand new ocean-based dungeon to Minecraft and an entirely new boss fight! The dungeon spawns in three specific ocean biomes, deep oceans, deep lukewarm oceans and deep warm oceans - the entrance can only be unlocked by obtaining a key through defeating a drowned blight. 🌊

Once you have the key in your posession, you can enter the ocean dungeon and explore 6 rooms, all of which contain multiple enemies but beware - they can camouflage with its surrounding environment.!

FEATURED MAPS
ADVENTURE TIME!
'Tis the season of scary movies! Why not pretend to be in one in Minecraft by downloading a horror adventure map with some jumpscares? Here are a couple of spoopy adventure maps we think you might like:
Are you up for a challenge? Potassiumola created this Haunted Mansion scavenger hunt that'll be sure to keep you busy. Your goal is to grab as many of the 54 items as you can, all of which will be hidden in barrels around the map. First person to get to the barrel gets the enchanged irem in the middle which is worth DOUBLE! Play alone of with friends!
Bedrock players, check it out.... a horror story map that'll have you shaking in your chair. The Conjuring 3 by wiskyslow is their 6th scary adventure map and they are GOOD. In this specific map your goal is to find the crooked man and destroy him. If you're considering playing this map, be sure to watch the trailer!

COLOSSAL CREATIONS
This castle is saba_builder's 5th one, and is by far the biggest they've created. Though this castle doesn't have an interior, we think it's best this way - you can decorate to your hearts desire and to your personal taste!
Prefer a more jungle-type environment with perhaps a gigantic temple that towers over the trees? We got you. Actually, Geet_Builds does with their latest map Jungle Temple. Who wouldn't want to live here?!




OFFICIAL INTERVIEW


This week's official interview is with....

moltenoni! Moltenoni was recommended to be interviewed by their peers in this forum thread. After browsing their profile, submissions, and activity on Planet Minecraft, it was clear as to why they were suggested by so many. Not only are they a really talented skin artist, they have a vibrant personality and love to spread positivity wherever they go.


Here is some pixel art they created specifically for this interview:

like ofc not completely ignoring the bad one, like, just, focusing on what i enjoy C:

Where did you learn to create skins and pixel art?

im, for the most part, self taught Cx

things they'd like and stuff C:

from going invisible to more common things like, bazookas and such, it's just a lot of fun to mess around with it honestly Cx

we havent gotten to do much rp honestly, at least not in my case lol, but i think we'll eventually get down to it Cx

like, first making the texture and then translating that into 3d and stuff lol


Who do you look up to in the community?
