Well, maybe an artist :-P

by CrayZ » Fri Dec 22, 2017 21:40

Well, hello, I'm CrayZ. I always liked making new art :-D
I'm probably not a real professional, but I may help make minetest better in some way.
I'm still a teen :-)
Check out my latest art!
Do you think I could help minetest textures get better?
Thanks for reading!

No. I wouldn't do that.

Make your own style. Art is hard work. Practice, work, practice, work.

If you really want to see yourself as an artist (which I highly encourage you to do) then you're much better off making a texture pack and making new textures for everything, in the style that YOU want it to be.

And of course, you'd license it CC-BY-SA-4.0 so that it can be used later as the default texture pack and others may use it in cool server mods or even whole subgames.

Don't try and copy minetest style. Make something better.

If you go the texture pack route, note that some MT textures have been borrowed from texture packs before.

I agree with sofar, the default texture pack is a bit of a mess, your talents are best focussed on completely new texture packs.

The attached image looks fantastic, it certainly shows that CrayZ has been practicing and developed a sense of style. This is why I am cautioning against attempting to improve the current textures that minetest has, this person has, I think, the capabilities of making a new and unobstructed visual experience for minetest.
