Building Tips?

Postby rawricusthewizard » Tue Jun 16, 2015 10:41 am

Hi, aside from my last post, I heard there were some master builders on the server, even if you aren't, I could use as much help as I can get! I've never really built statues before and I've never been able to build flags properly, so I was hoping I could get some advice and help from you guys -pictures included :D.

Other than that, if you guys also have any requests on building advice, feel free to post them here too, because I'm sure those giving advice know what they are talking about and if I can help at all I will -I am particularly good at building walls and the roof of a house.

Here are my first attempts at a statue:

Here is my worst attempt at a flag:

Sorry if we aren't allowed to send links, but unfortunately I couldn't attach screenshots, you can click them to prove they aren't dodgy.

Thanks for the help!

Wouldn't clicking them to prove they aren't dodgy be the very reason why someone wouldn't want links? ;)
Many picture storage sites offer a "Copy image* link sort of option, if you're interested. even let's you post a thumbnail that people can see, then click on, to be taken to a full image... Though now that I've said that, I'm not sure if it works on BBS boards like this one. lol

PS: That's actually a pretty good pendant you made there. It looks better than I could do. The statue does look a bit rough, but that's Minecraft for you. I've found that the bigger you build anything in Minecraft, the more detail you can put into it. Once you get in the server, you're always welcome to practice statue building in the freebuild world. Phht, you could even build them in the main world, providing they aren't pixel art, and are within your 50x plot.

Yeah, sorry about that, I meant to direct the comment to staff but I was slightly confused on what to do, anyway I'm glad you liked it and I'll definitely take that advice, I'm working on the new statue right now and yes, hopefully I get on the server :D

I really like your flag, mine's have changed quite a bit over time but one thing i've noticed with people's flags is that they're divided into sections with a two block length or so (Sometimes 3 in the first section, as it's the usually the biggest part of the flag). The hole you did in the first section of the flag makes it look more detailed if not a little unrealistic IMO Could be wrong, but flags dont wave in the wind well with holes?
Slightly chunky variations of flags from a older build of mine
I usually work with bigger statues, personally because there's alot more room for detail. If im making small scale builds though, I use stairs,slabs for details, fences to fill in spaces without obstructing the view of the blocks behind it , and occassionally stone/wood buttons for eyes. Use "half blocks" to your advantage! Small statues are hard to work with so I applaud you on yours, ifyou're looking for help on creating small statues this guy :arrow: has alot of nifty videos and tips on the matter.
