Tl;Dr Disclaimer: This title is not sarcasm or self-deprecation. :) It's for a build theme; Derpy Animals!

I made this build within a single day, rushing as quickly and hastily as I could before the deadline. Daunting, really. It was truly quite daunting, because before this build my organic experience is so incredibly limited that all I could rely on was knowledge I had for other skills and the little knowledge I picked up while making the big organic in my "Spooky Space Sorcery" build, which contains the first serious fully-fledged large organic I ever made... and frankly, I feel really, really happy with how it turned out. Like, at this point, although I made this to try to compete as competitions are great fun, I can safely say that no matter the result this has been more than worth the time and I feel has served as the best learning experience out of all my entries so far, because this is a theme that's out of my comfort zone. I am not in the slightest bit comfortable making huge organics. I have hardly any experience - yet, I loved it, and I had a lot of fun with it, and I really, really like how it turned out. I know it can be better, but I'm really happy with it.

Anyway- Anyway, moving on to the point- Although I had to add that ramble because I'm happy- This build was made for the Minecraft Discord's Fortnightly Building Challenge, hosted as always by Cookiie, who has consistently been a rather sweet friendly person (I felt like adding that), and the theme this time was "Derpy Animals". ...now, perhaps, maybe, you may question why of all things, I chose a dinosaur for this theme, and one which, honestly, was portrayed quite impactfully... but I think it's arms are hilarious and it's easily the only animal I've thought was derpy since the moment I first saw it. Just think of its showings in things like Toy Story with Rex the toy T-Rex. It's hilarious. It's derpy to the core. Yes, it's the most devastating dinosaur king they all feared, and I can fully understand why- but I can not take it seriously. Plus I purposefully gave it eyes that face directly backwards for no reason- but the main point is that the arms make it so hard to take it seriously, to the point that I feel even when it's in such an incredibly imposing scene, with a threatening demeanour and harsh volcanic style with lava and magma overwhelming its core, it still looks derpy to me. It's possible I may be biased against the tyrannosaurus rex. I doubt I'd think this in person, after all. ...but still, it is what it is, and it's hilarious to me, and I was racking my brain for a few hours about what could possibly be derpy and it came to mind and I just knew I had to do it. I thought of horses, camels, dogs, wolves, perhaps even a chase of animals, a herd of them, or whatever- fences, a field, tree stumps, grass, giant flowers- originally I was even going to go with a really big hedgehog and leave it at that, taking an easy route out to not worry too much about completing it in a single day, and then I saw the user "ziemniak225"'s submission, and... yeah, that was cool, so I didn't have a choice but to aim a lot higher and push myself to finish something far better than what I wanted, and somehow or another I did and I am proud and happy and I can tell I've improved at organics even while knowing there's lots more room to keep going too. :D

Anyhow! Thank you for reading through this, and I hope you like the build. :) Most of this is really just me rambling, as I feel I had to get a lot of this off my chest as I'm happy... and I talk a lot in every one of my descriptions as I feel it can be pretty interesting for some people from time to time. :) While a build is a doorway into what went on in a person's mind, the description can help complete that doorway and show the world on the other side with a light it never otherwise would've had. Or at least that's my opinion - they take a while to read and people have limited time, so often simple is better too. :) Whatever the case, I like doing it this way. :D

Also, if you do check out the competition, make sure to search for Ziemniak's post in the #build-challenge channel as it's great. It's a skeletal centaur in a candy lollipop forest. :)

I'll update this with whatever placing I end up with, and in the meantime I hope anyone reading this - and hey, anyone not as well - is having a good day. :D It would be splendid if everyone did. Hopefully seeing this build contributes to that a little too- and even if it doesn't? That's alright, so long as you're still doing well. :)
Edit: It turns out I got second place, so I lost out to Ziemniak who I was trying to beat, but I'm alright with it. :) Ziemniak did great and I feel I gained a lot of experience with organics by participating in this, so it was more than worth it. :D

And as I noticed on many submissions a download gets requested- I added one for this one too. :) I mean, I have no idea what anyone would download it for but I appreciate the interest the submissions get anyway. :D Just please make sure not to repost it in any way; I'd prefer it wasn't reused like that. :)
CreditI used SIldur's Vibrant Shaders for the screenshots with Shaders - it was a match that worked so well! :D I also used World Edit and VoxelSniper for the building on the Builder's Refuge server.

Thank you as always, Kord. :D Despite the fact I thought of this due to thinking it didn't look scary, it still somehow seems strange to me to see it be seen as anything like it's charming, even though I agree. xD I didn't expect that to be agreed with by anyone else considering its ever so slight history of carnage.

How do people build like this IN ONE DAY



Like, people tell me I'm good at building, but it take awhile...

even If I have world edit...

XD I'm happy it seems hard even with World Edit. I almost avoided making this too, as I was going to go small as I didn't think I was capable of this in one day as you say. Apparently i was wrong. So, with that in mind, I guess the key way to find out is to just go for it as much as you can?

wow, good advice, most of the time when people talk about making big builds in one day, they tell me "Oh, it was easy" and don't say HOW it was easy, so you are either the first great builder I've seen who isn't lying through their teeth, or other people have different limits. who knew?



Here's a sub.

Ah, I'm happy it seems like good advice, but honestly I didn't say much about how. xD For some people this kind of build genuinely would be easy though - they're not kidding. I mainly used a mix of VoxelSniper, Arceon and WorldEdit and a bunch of references of tyrannosaurus rex anatomy, and then stuck to being determined to get through it. Some brush spheres from World Edit, /b bb from Voxel, the "//replace" command with some patterns like #simplex and #voronoi, the //spike command which is epic, and... that's all, as it was mainly just using brushes and a couple of easy commands. :) Still- I didn't think I could do it, but in the end I was wrong, so trying definitely helps, and all of those plugins and mods help even more. :D

XD I was a little confused about what tags to add as I couldn't decide whether it was more scary or more derpy, soo... all of the above worked out best, I feel. xD I'm glad they were hilarious.
"FBC" stands for "Fortnightly Building Challenge", and is a building challenge on the official Minecraft Discord which I like participating in from time to time. :)

That's a horrifyingly hilarious thought and I'd love to hope that's serious as I really wonder what thought process it'd take to get to it seriously. xD

He just looks great to cuddle with, like a cat or dog y'know! That and my dog, Dougie, has a slight derp to his eyes which this dinosaur reminds me of.

That is a great reminder and I approve.
I'm happy I'm not the only one who genuinely doesn't feel this menacing dinosaur is actually "menacing" and instead just looks, well, soft and approachable. It's great he reminds you of your dog. :)
