[You’ll only understand what’s going on in the design if you have been following their videos on youtube]
I’ve been following FyreUK on youtube since it started, and last month they start a competition for a t-shirt design that would go on sell in their online store. I decided I would look at it from the view of a brief and at the same time get some practice using Cinema 4D. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out and I liked how Cinema 4D allowed me to position the Minecraft characters into any position and adjust the lighting as if it were a real photography studio.
Wednesday the 8th of August was the results night and I was really happy to hear that I had came Runner up after the two main winners. I still got my t-shirt design in the online store and I am now able to access their restricted Minecraft server. It’s really nice to be able to access the server, and I know from their youtube channel that they have a large following of people that would just love to be in my place. I was extremely chuffed to hear that my design was the best selling one too and the first to be sold. You can visit the online store and have a look. Here is also the video of the results.
Know what Minecraft is?
Well Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. It’s created a base for hundreds of thousands of creative people to create some amazing things. The best part is that everyone can work together as a community and create some amazing things and share ideas.
FyreUK is a server that consists of a select bunch of people. There are servers out there that are open to everyone, but with FyreUK, you can only actually get onto the server if you win the privilege or it used to be that if you donated enough money (say £10) to help support the server and website, then you would be allowed on.
FyreUK have their own youtube channel, where you can see all their timelapses and tours of their world creations. With lots of amazing buildings and sculpture, sometimes its easy to forget that everything is just made up of basic cubes and how much work actually goes into building something on this scale. I really like the fact that they have videos of the whole build and also a live streams every second saturday. It help you predicate the creativity, effort, teamwork and commitment of everyone involved.
