Paintings in Minecraft can be a great way to add a little personalization to your bases and builds. However, due to the wide range of options available, you may find it a bit overwhelming to choose the one that fits your artistic taste.
In fact, many of these paintings are inspired by real-life art pieces as well. Here, we’ve listed a rundown of some of the most amazing Minecraft paintings in real life.
Let’s take a look at each of them one by one:
This Minecraft painting pays homage to the game International Karate +. The main character appears to be about to fight off a large hand that is trying to touch it.
The painting feels like a tap on the shoulder, an acknowledgment that video games and gamers are connected. But many people also interpret it as a tribute to the famous “The Creation of Adam” painting.
The void is a term used to describe the end of all things in the seemingly endless world of Minecraft. Players can’t survive once in creative mode here, however, so this painting pays tribute to that place by featuring an angel-like figure praying to it and has a pixelated fire burning within it.
If you’re planning to build a castle in Minecraft, hanging this painting inside will make it look even better. The painting features Marcus Aurelius, the stoic philosopher, and a Roman emperor but in the form of a bust.
The term bust is used to describe a stone statue that only covers the upper part of a person’s torso. In Minecraft’s beautiful painting, Marcus’s bust is surrounded by pixelated fire that makes it look even better.
Skull on Fire
This painting is based on Minecraft, using the game’s background as a background. And in the foreground, the artist offers us a 3D skull burning with pixelated fire.
Contrary to your expectations, however, this fire doesn’t look like the one found in-game. However, even though it doesn’t fit well into most builds—it still looks great nonetheless.
Our next entry in the list of Minecraft paintings in real life is for everyone who likes food. It’s called “Kebab med tre pepperoni” and is a picture of the kebab, which is a type of skewered meat dish popular in many countries. In this painting, the kebab has three green peppers on it.
Many non-Minecraft players assume that the game’s setting is disconnected from the world of gun-based video games.
However, if you look at its artwork, the team behind Minecraft clearly likes first-person shooters. What we are talking about is a painting called Aztec2, which gives us a screenshot of the de_Aztec map from Counter-Strike.
If you want to add some fun to your Minecraft world, the Pigscene may be just what you need. The painting in-game shows a girl pointing toward a pig on a canvas.
The original one includes RGB blocks, as shown in the image. The pig looks like the pig mob from Minecraft so you can make your farm feel special with this artwork!
A popular reference for many Minecraft paintings is the artwork of Kristoffer Zetterstrand. However, not all of them are based on the Wither. This painting directly pays homage to one of the most popular bosses in Minecraft—the Wither.
It shows us how you can spawn a Wither in Minecraft. You can easily identify the structure made of soul soil blocks and skeleton skulls on top.
An homage to the pixelated Nintendo 64 games or a tribute to video games in general, Minecraft includes a painting inspired by the retro Donkey Kong series.
The painting reflects the screenshot of the level 100m from the game, with Kong clearly visible in the painting. If you are a 90’s kid, this is a must-have for your collection of beautiful Minecraft paintings.
The Creebet is a painting that you can find in Minecraft. It’s one of the oldest paintings in the game and features a creeper looking at you through an open window. Behind the creeper are mountains and an ocean, but you can’t make them out clearly due to the pixelation.
So, there you have it, a quick look at some of the most amazing Minecraft art to date. You might not be as interested in these paintings as some of your Minecraft-loving friends are, but you sure should be.
