Minecraft temple of the thinkamancers

By rpgarcher Comments (12) (Tipped by 31 people!)

I got super inspired by Cloudbreaker's minecraft version of Gobwin Knob, and thought it would be fun if I tried to take on a place in erfworld. After doing some scouting in the old comics I decided the temple of the thinkamancers would be a good place, very angular so it translated to minecraft well. The star was the hardest part. It took me 3 tries to get the star to my liking, and probably close to half the total build time.



For the first image I tried to match the reference shot in the comic to the best of my ability. Some of the geometry doesn't work out the same, but I think I got pretty close. The original is here in the main comic.

The main temple: I used stained glass for the pilars, and cored them with whatever I thought was best. Left to right is: Red stained clay, gold block, lime green stained clay, lapis block, magenta stained clay, magenta wool.

The main approach: The tall skinny trees are orange stained clay. I had a hard time making the walkway up look even vaguely like a curve. Curves are hard in minecraft.

The meeting room: I couldn't figure a way to make the stairs glow red, so I just left them as solid white. On the colored chairs the armrests are banners.

The back buildings, the trees, and the eye symbol: I think the trees are probably a little more vibrant than in the original art. I considered using a mod with colored leaves, or altering my texture pack to have them, but I wanted the project to be entirely in base minecraft, so I worked with what was available.
