Minesweeper Pixel Art Coffee Cup




Introduction: Minesweeper Pixel Art Coffee Cup

Here is my second tutorial on how to do minesweeper pixel art.

I will be showing you how to make a coffee cup here and the only thing you will need is minesweeper!

Step 1: Start Here...

Begin by making a 24x30 grid with 10 mines.

Start at 2 or 3 squares above the bottom of the grid and make the same thing I made in the photo.

In minesweeper pixel art you have a maximum of four different colours. they are as follows:

Blue/green, depends on which mode you choose.

White, this is made by clicking an area and when the tiles turn over they will give you a white colour.

Red, this is made by flagging a square.

White blue mixture, this is made by putting a question mark on a square.

Once you know how to make all the colours you can start!

Step 2:

To continue the coffee cup you should mark the top ring with flags instead of question marks.

Make an enclosed ring of flags and click the inside, it will turn white like in the second photo.

Now turn the flags back into question marks and move on.

Step 3:

Now you can add the steam, do this by making wavy lines above the cup.

If you want, you can click a mine which will reveal a 5th colour, the flags that didn't mark mines will be a grey/red mixture.

After clicking a mine you cannot change the design, it is set.

It is now you should take a screenshot to save your work and begin making another thing!

    I love minesweeper, my sister saw me playing it awhile back and had never seen or heard of it. How is that possible? Although clearly you spend even more time than me clicking those little squares as doing something like this never even came close to crossing my mind during my many wasted hours. It is pretty cool.

    You know, I don't spend much time at all on minesweeper.

    I only made a custom grid and started pixel are last week, that is about the most I have ever played it in my life!!

    I love the steam part, it looks so nice with the question marks, much better than I would have guessed in a vaccum.

    The steam was a complete afterthought!
