I've been on deviantART on and off over the past few weeks, but haven't been active much. I decided I wanted to make something new, and, well ... here you go. I used the same effects that I usually use on my other Minecraft deviations, and tried a few new techniques. As always, I'm improving upon myself and teaching myself new things. I played around with all the effects I could try when I was finished, and I like the end result very much.
The screenshots were taken in Minecraft 1.3.2. The seed of the world is 7768551264047168149, and you should spawn right on top of the village.
This was edited in GIMP 2.6.11 and I used a few mods to help me create this scene:
OptiFine [link] for increased render distance and a few other visual tweaks. MineShot [link] to take the high-resolution screenshot. (ModLoader [link] required.)
I strongly encourage you to express your opinion. Every comment and favorite encourages me and helps me to improve.
