Rin's Room #42: Insane Minecraft Builds. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

If you are a person living on the Earth, then you’ve probably heard of Minecraft. And if you’re a gamer, then chances are you’ve played Minecraft at least once. So you can appreciate the difficulty that goes into making literally…ANY structure. I can’t even build a house in Minecraft, the process takes me 2 hours… just to create a simple house.

Which is why when I see stunning photos of these massive creations that people are able to make within the game, it really blows me away. There was this new event called Apex Events that partnered with Cubed Creative and Minecraft Buildcon specifically for invited builders. It features pretty cool prizes (like money), and the winners have been announced. The theme for the contest was “human achievement.”

Here’s the winning entry (DR_BOND):

Look at that insane level of detail! I’m absolutely in awe guys, that level of detail is so impressive. Here’s his explanation from his build page:

The ‘Perfect Marionette’ is a piece made for the Builder’s Refuge Apex Contest, which portrays the theme of Human Achievement in a two-fold way. One through art, it’s culture and views; another through perfection, and what every human being desires. Rather than tackle the theme head on and create yet another stereotypical construction, I turned the theme into a question and I asked myself over and over, “What is it that humans desire to achieve?” The answer that came to me was ‘perfection’.

At the center of the piece sits the girl, holding what seems to be a glass ball; however, the item is of no significance. It is whatever you desire that she holds, whatever signifies your achievement. A reflection of perfect beauty. The puppeteer looms over her, representing the many conditions and emotions one is controlled by as they embark on their own odyssey.

His explanation is so…intense, guys. But when you think about the theme of “human achievement,” it really does make sense.


Here’s the second place winner (UDVIO):

This is his description:

AWAKENING – Null Bomb is a project about mankind extinction achievement through military acts. The story sets in a dystopian near-future: A highly advanced black vessel comes to release an anti-matter bomb capable of destroying entire cities. It is made of an unknown material capable of resisting the shock wave and vortex created by the bomb it releases.

This work of art was also incredibly impressive, but it didn’t strike at my heart the way the first one did. Still, it was insanely intricate, and in the wake of all the fears about nuclear war, it’s really poignant. He shows the “before” and “after” of the city exploding:

How awesome is that?! Seriously, it looks like a huge black spider-explosion-thing taking over the city. Like an image from a dystopian movie.


Here’s the third place entry for the contest (THOMASESC):

So you can see the future inventions that are to come while the cavemen are sitting around the campfire. DNA, the wheel, music, vaccines, and so on and so forth. I interpret this as a sort of, “Here is what to come in the future–the dreams of mankind.” What do you think? I love the ambiance of the fireplace and their subtly smiling faces.

I couldn’t find an explanation that the original creator wrote, but you can check out his Imgur album with the link above.

Now, these definitely aren’t the only Minecraft builds. In fact, there’s an entire community of them that you may be familiar with–they’re on Planet Minecraft, where they share their builds, make them available for download, and help each other out. It’s pretty cool that Minecraft is so versatile–I don’t think any other game allows you to make art the way Minecraft does. Maybe I should send these photos to my brother (he’s a huge Minecraft nerd) and ask him about what he likes to make.

If you want to check out the other builds, you can go to Planet Minecraft here. You can even download some new skins if you feel like you’re in need of a serious makeover. So, what do you think about the entries to this contest? Do you think someone else should have won? I believe Dr_Bond did a fantastic job and he definitely deserved first place.

  1. This is so amazing! I enjoy playing Minecraft but, I’m stuck with a simple Roller Coaster. I can’t even do a majestic one even, I’m playing it for years.

    All of them looks so amazing but I can honestly say, that even in my opinion, the perfect marionette really looked the best. Seeing something like that just makes you look in awe. All the hard work and love that went through making that. It truly is a beauty.
