Jumbo 3D Perler Minecraft Creeper by SirEschaton Jumbo 3D Perler Minecraft Creeper by SirEschaton
My first crack at something 3D. Exactly 19 cm tall, it’s a Creeper from Minecraft. Made out of perler beads, with the head and feet bonded to the torso with hot glue. No blueprints, I just winged it. I’d be happy to hear any tips for next time.

Is it easy to hot glue the beads together? I am interested in making a project with peeler beads that is 3D and I'm wondering if it's simple enough.

It was quite easy,  and I only did it to connect the head/feet to the body. I prefer to create jigsaw pieces out of the sides and snap them together, and I know some people avoid using any glue whatsoever so you might want to see if glue is even necessary. Using hot glue can get sticky if you're not quick enough, so test it out until you're comfortable applying it in a timely manner.

Thanks! I've considered some of these, but I wasn't sure what to use.

Did you use the exact pixalation that it has in the game? Looks great!

No, I didn't copy every pixel it has in the game. I matched the face and toes, but the green parts are an approximation and I took liberties on the pattern. Copying every pixel would have meant using 4 beads for every pixel, and I wanted to give the guy a more natural look. I also had more types of green than what the in-game creeper has. I used dark green, grass green, melon green, pale green, and a yellow-lime.

Yes. I took the dimensions the in-game creeper has and doubled them.

Are these mini beads? If these are midi, that would be huge.. I've thought about doing a double-sized, but I've only done singles with the midi.. That's intense..

SirEschaton Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012
Yes, they are mini beads. Twice the height of a regular-sized Creeper. I loosely based the color pattern on the pixel pattern their skin has in the game. If I ever make one again, I'll figure out how to make a rotatable neck. I'm not very experienced; this was the second thing I ever made in 3D.

Mini beads, but still twice the height.. Oh dear, that's large. Given the size, I'm not sure my technique on rotating the head would work, but it might.. I hope to have tutorials up soon, otherwise explaining in text is tricky.

I basically melt two single beads down to almost nothing, to act as collars to grip against a thick paperclip I send straight up between the top-body and bottom-head pieces. Since yours is large, my next suggestion would be to make a small "board" out of beads, maybe 2x3 to go between the collar (or two collars) and the head/body piece. Might help keep it from wobbling side to side too much, if the collars hold everything in place well.

| <--Paperclip
O <--Collar
==|== <--Bracer
====|===== <--Bottom of the head
====|===== <--Top of the body
==|== <--Bracer
O <--Collar
| <--Paperclip

If that even shows up at all correct :p Or even makes any sense for that matter

LOl nice try though have seen a link from zelda that uses four fused beads and the last bead was cut in the shape of an arrow and it was used to plug up on the bottom part of the neck area (the part that would pivot the 3D link's head if you want i can give you a the pic just let me know =)

What they do in Minecraft? They're completely silent until they've snuck up right next to you. Then they hiss and explode, destroying the surrounding area (like your house walls) and killing you if you don't have proper armor on. It's even more fun when they sneak up on you in a cave and explode, destroying the nearby torches and plunging you into darkness. Or worse, into another cave underneath full of more hostile mobs.

How many beads is that?
How long did it take to make?
And, could more be made?
If so, would they be for sale?
Reply
:iconsireschaton:
SirEschaton Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
Roughly 4200 beads.
I worked off and on over the course of five days.
Not sure about making more, I don't think I'm efficient enough to make and sell them.

Not bad, I give you credit on jumping into it without any sort of game plan. That looks pretty good. Now, as a 3D bead artist who swears against the use of hot glue or any outside materials... lose that, and your amazing.
