Who would have thought that turning stock photos of regular animals into cubified monstrosities would be so much fun? This digital artist, named Aditya Aryanto, does exactly that: he gives boring real-life animals the Minecraft treatment. If you’re not at all familiar with the gaming world, Minecraft is a hit sandbox video game, developed by Markus “Notch” Persson, where you roam around the world, chopping down blocky trees, killing blocky zombies, and mining blocky diamonds. If I were to describe this game with one word, it would be – blocky.
So, either way, Aditya Aryanto uses the ‘liquify’ feature in Photoshop to change the animals into cube-shaped abominations, then shares his work with the rest of the world on his Instagram page. Let me show you a few of his best creations!
1. In a cubic world it’s only logical that rabbits would be called “cubits”, right?
2. Even this deer’s antlers are blocky!
3. Beep-beep, I’m a sheep. I said beep-beep I’m a sheep.
4. More sheep!
5. This one looks exceptionally freaky to me for some reason.
