Cartoon Vark

Cartoon Vark is a 32x texture pack with a simplistic, cartoony feel/look to it. The project has been a WIP since 8/16/12. Every day I have been working very hard to make each texture look amazing. With the help of the community, I have been able to fix textures that just don't fit. Please read the spoilers as they contain information about this pack.

If you like this pack, show your support by giving me a Diamond! Or you can send me a small donation by clicking on the donation link on top! Thanks.


You need an HD Patcher for this pack. I recomend using Optifine, but you can use Mc Patcher as well. If you are using Optifine, you can toggle the animations and connected textures in the Video settings.


The terrain textures are finally finished! All of the remaining changes will be listed below.
To-Do List
  • Adjustments. Ore, gravel, cobble.
  • Wool-Will be making a better design that is more suitable for flooring.
  • Armor(Possibly)
  • Mobs (Currently on hold)


*Mattie0304 is currently working on the mobs(I think), so the below information is slightly irrelevant*

I will list the progress towards mobs below. They will take much longer since they are about 4x the resolution! I did that for detail flexibility. The list will contain mobs being worked on as well as mobs to be worked on next. Just because all mobs aren't on the list, doesn't mean I am not working on them.

  • Zombie
  • Spider
  • Skeleton

  • Key:
  • Current Mob
  • Next Mob
  • Mob After That


Since the remaining textures require more tedious work, they will take a bit longer. So the updates will be more spread out, don't be sad, I am still working on the pack just as hard. You can see what has changed, if it has changed, in the update logs.


I appreciate all feedback as it gives me an idea towards how well I am doing so far. Even if you aren't one who diamonds, please let me know what you think in the comments! Is there a certain block that I already finished that you think doesn't fit with the rest? Tell me, I will redo that block if I agree. Of course, diamonding also helps :p Thanks to those who have already commented, I'm glad to see that what I have so far is good.

Kyctarniq did an amazing job on the font!


If anyone would like to make a video Review of the texture pack, I will feature it here! As long as you make note that Cartoon Vark is still a work in progress.


kyctarniq was nice enough to let me use a few textures from his Texture Pack Darklands. You should really check his Texture Pack out! He did a really nice job.

The amazing job on the font was done by kyctarniq

Diamond for you, can't wait to see it finished.
Thanks! It is pretty much in its final state, but there are a few things that I wish to add/improve upon in the future :)

Start with the coal. It looks hard to see. Then pretty up the ore blocks, they could use a bit of variation.
Its funny you mention that, I was just working on a random variation per ore. Ok I will take a look at the coal though! Thanks for the input

cool...diamond fav and download
What version is this for? 1.4 right?
Yeap. Works for all versions. If you are asking if all 1.4 textures are added, most are. Just the items are not finished and the beacon GUI.
how do you get a texture pack im new
First click the download link at the top right of this post. Then go to your texturepacks folder in your .minecraft and place the .zip into it. Thats it.
To get to the texturepacks folder, simply open minecraft and click texturepacks, then click the open folder button.

This pack is considered "HD" so you will need a patcher. You can use either McPatcher or Optifine.

Hope that answered your question!

The Creepere is cool
Thanks! The face took me awhile haha
When it's gonna complete? :c
Are all blocks texture complete? ;)
I have just a few blocks left, I just did the Flower pot and the beacon I am trying to figure out a texture for. Crops too, but most blocks are finished! The progress bar is still at 75% because I have tools, GUI and mobs to do.
Good luck man. :)

Oh cool! I only did the Creeper since I wasn't sure how well liked he would be. I will post screenshots of mobs as I make them. Thanks for the feedback!

Nice, just don't forget to credit me, that took me about 6-8 hours to do, and that was just the face haha

Yeah, a lot of texture packs aren't my type, I have to find that one I Really like, like Dokucraft but simpler. Glad to support you in any way :)
I know how you feel, I liked Doku but wanted something a bit smoother. I also liked packs like Photo Realism, but the textures are just too noisy at anything past 128 for me. Thanks, the support really helps motivate me to work hard on every block instead of half-assing it haha

  • October 25, 2012, 12:31 pm
No problem :) There is so many things I like about Doku, but some textures just bug me haha
Any textures about this pack that you think could change? I am always looking to make the pack better

Looks good so far, but the only think I dislike about it is the ores. Like, the color is fine, but I think you should add a little bit more detail to the stone. (I realize it's a cartoon pack, and it should be simple.) I do like the grass also, but if I were you, I would turn the color darker the slightest bit. but that's all that I can see so far. By the way, the pumpkins are awesome :D
I really like the ores for some reason, they are actually my favorite :P I'll mess around with different shades for the grass. And thanks for the pumpkin feedback, they actually turned out really good. I didn't think they were going to haha

  • October 25, 2012, 6:25 pm
Haha, yeah. I wish I was good at textures so I could make good packs, guess I'll have to stick to structures and modding :)
haha I wish I was good at modding, so many great ideas, but I don't know how to make them into a mod

Still how I am, still not the best at it, like I'm trying to figure out a mod that makes minecart rails vertical...Seemed like a easy mod, but theres SO many physics and rules behind rails it turned out lol
I can imagine, I can barely get rails to work right in game, let alone make a mod about it XD Hey i'll send you a PM, I don't want to fill the comment section up with a conversation haha

I still think you are doing a fantastic job - And at such a fast pace. It is evident that you are working hard on this.
If you are looking into increasing your texture editing skill, you might want to consider the following ideas for you texture pack, as well. Although, adding these to your to do list might end up scrambling your brain:

-Animated Textures Mod (Comes with HD Patcher)

-Connected Textures Mod [size=small](Comes with HD Patcher)[/size]
- And Better Skies Mod [size=small](Comes with HD Patcher)[/size]

(Link for both)
Sure, once I get a bit more finished(won't be until after 1.4 releases) I will definitely give them a try. Thanks!

This needs a load more shading, it looks like just flat noise right now. Also, saying it is cartoony is wrong. Cartoon is not how something looks, it is how it feels.

Why would you make a high res'd pack thats simple? Im so confused D;
This is my first attempt on making a texture pack. You are right about thie res being to high for the very simple textures, but I like to have a little flexibilty on some blocks such as the bed.

can't believe you responded to me and not the guy below me
The two responses below his were relatively the same. I appreciate his comment just as much. Your comment was different.
Really good looking texture pack! I love how you keep the simple look! Hope you finish soon! XD
Thanks, some blocks are harder to stick to the theme than others XD
