Despite being slightly late to the party, I’ve recently started playing Minecraft and found it to be a fun creative sandbox game that can be played alone or with others. You’re a blocky pixel person set loose on a blocky pixel landscape to dig out minerals and construct increasingly elaborate edifices.

Because I am a giant nerd, I thought it’d be fun to make a custom skin for my avatar. Here it is:

You can see a preview here, and instructions on how to use it as your own avatar can be found on the tremendously useful Minecraft wiki here. Feel free to tweak or recolour or edit it as you see fit, and let me know if you use it. πŸ˜€


…and every time you see your custom block hand pawing at a stone cube when your pick breaks, or see the kobold in your inventory screen, that little voice will say “maybe I should be working on the comic instead of playing Minecraft for another six hours”.

Or at least that was my thinking when I made a quick skin of the main character from my comic…

Haha, awesome. I’m glad I’m not alone. πŸ˜€

I have had to impose a very strict No Minecraft Before 5pm rule on myself, because the game has the potential to be a time-vampire of horrific proportions. The block-sun rising over a gleaming block-citadel of lofty block-spires might be a magnificent sight, but I think people would probably prefer to see the next page of the comic. So, discipline. πŸ˜€
