If your like me, MineCraft is on your mind all day. in the morning, on the bus, in class, at lunch, while taking notes, while showering, it even shows up in my DREAMS! MineCraft is a drug, and millions are addicted. The best way to get your fix when not playing, FanArt!
I decided to make a replica pick-axe. This technique can be used for any of the tools, but i really wanted a pick-axe. There's no zombies outside my house, so I don't need a sword (There's creepers but they keep their distance.) I wanted it to be durable, so I made it out of wooden blocks then painted it. It worked really well!
Also, Just for fun, there's a picture of it below in anaglyphic red/cyan 3D! You know, in case you guys are to lazy to make it...
Step 1: Getting the Template
Go into your minecraft jar file. If you don't know how to do this, look for modding instructions on youtube or minecraft forums. When in the jar file, go into gui.png and extract it wherever you want. I have one below for you to use although I'm not sure if you can download the photoshop file. Use this as a reference for what pixels go where and a painting reference later. I made an iron pick-axe. A few of the iron tools are below plus a diamond if you want to make one. The pickaxes have 69 pixels so I will need at least that many wooden cubes.
