Step 1: Steve's Face
First I started making Steve's face. I made it by using cubes that are different colors and arranged them. It helps if you have a picture of Steve so that you can place the blocks in the right positions. Tip: to make the process go faster, for example, group more than one skin colored block together, then duplicate them and place them in the right fit spots.
Step 2: Making the Cylinder
Then I took a cylinder shape and put Steve's face in the middle of the cylinder. You can adjust the size of the cylinder as needed to make the face fit.
Step 3: Stretch It Up!
Then I stretched the cylinder with Steve's face together in a vertical direction. You can stretch it as large as you want your cup holder to be.
Step 4: Duplicating Steve's Face
Then I duplicated Steve's face four times and stacked all four of them vertically. Then I grouped them. This will be the design on the outside of the cup holder.
Step 5: Duplicate Again
Then I duplicated the grouping of Steve's face four more times. This leaves me with 4 groupings, each like a column.
Step 6: The Minecraft Steve's Head Cup Holder
Then I arranged the four columns evenly around the cylinder for decoration.
And there you go. Now you can go and make your own!
