Minecraft Pixel Portraits

Have you ever heard of or played Minecraft? What did you notice about how the images or graphics look? Minecraft graphics are made up of pixels, which means they are are designed with visible block shapes instead of smoother lines.

Today, you’ll create a portrait using pixels. A portrait is an artwork of a person or an animal. Take a look at the video, then begin your portrait.

  1. Choose a person to draw- is it a real person, someone you know, is it yourself?
  2. Find the middle line. Use the middle line to help you add facial features, such as eyes, mouth, head, hairline, neck, and body.
  3. Add details.
  4. Trace lines with marker (it doesn’t have to be black).
  5. Add color. Take you time, have fun!
