Hello minecraft forums,
I am an experienced animator with over 1 year of experience in blender. I have been making animated intros for over 6 months now and I am getting a lot better.. I want to become even better at what I do, and that takes some practice, so I am currently offering to create intros very inexpensively for people. I have to charge money for 2 reasons. First, I only have so much time, and second I get flooded with requests any time the word free comes up.
Currently I can make 2 kinds of animations:
3d Text ones like this:
3d Minecraft ones like this:
If you are interested in either type please post below or pm me, and I'll add you on skype so we can talk about what you want. The intros are usually 15$ or more, with text based ones being much cheaper.

Oct 3, 2013Look guys , how many times am I going to have to say it. IM NOT INTERESTED IN BEING "A PART OF YOUR BIG PROJECT" UNLESS YOU ARE PAYING. The problem with that arrangement is that I get to do all the work while you sit on your behind and then when it's finished and you upload it and get all the views/subs/credit.Posted in: Other Help
Oh, by the way. 3 minute long videos are going to cost you over $100 guaranteed. Think that's absurd? Go learn to animate and do it yourself.

Blender, Vegas movie studio 11
About me: I started animating almost a year ago. I began with mine imator but quickly grew tired of it's crappiness :P. I moved on to blender and have been using it since. I am primarily an animator, and I'm pretty good at that. My modeling kind of sucks :P.
Past work: check out my youtube here: www.youtube.com/Mineaheadtv
I also am working on episode 2 of my animated series, my profile pic is from that and it's a whole lot better than anything I've done before.
Mar 5, 2013Important Update!!!Posted in: PC Servers
This Server is DEAD. It has been dead for a long time now. Stop Bumping this thread. Stop PM-ing me.
Hello Minecraft Forums,
Today I am very excited to announce the release of a new kind of hunger games server. I grew tired of your traditional, battle after battle kind of hunger games. To me, that really doesn't capture the essence of the books at all. I want a server where I can try to survive in the world of the hunger games, where actually having to go into the arena is a bad thing, and starvation is a much bigger threat. So, I am hosting this new server because it is something I have wanted for awhile now. It is slow going, so right now the thing I need most is builders. Also, it should be noted that people who help me build will be much more likely to receive admin. If you do not want to help build, join the server anyway and talk to me about what you think of the idea. Getting peoples input on this would be great, and i also want to know how popular this idea is. let me know if you guys like it! I hope this server can grow and entertain myself and anyone else who joins.
(Server is whitelisted, request below)
More In-Depth Description of What the server will be about:
(Please note that the following is what will occur once construction is finished)
When you join the server, you will be assigned a district. Once you join this district, you will need to find a way to get food, whether for you that means hunting illegally or finding a job. Once every 2 weeks there will be a drawing held, and 12 citizens will be randomly chosen to compete in the hunger games. The games will be recorded and broadcast on the server's own youtube channel for everyone to watch. The winner of the games will be showered with gifts, and given an apartment in the capital, along with the chance to help design future arenas as a gamemaker. Moderators will be peacekeepers, and there will be a limited number of admins chosen by me to play as a gamemaker and design things.
Applications for builder should include the following:
In game name:
What you have built in the past (pics or links would be nice):
Have you read the books?:
Will u play on the finished server?:
What we have finished so far:
We have 95% of the capitol done!

Please don't say Mine-mator again it is a bad program and too many little kids use it and make bad videos.
use cinema 4D if you want to see some cinema 4D animations check out my channel.
Look guys, Animation is hard. There is no shortcut and no easy way. You can't just push a button and out pops an animation. It takes time to learn the interface. As wc7777 said, cinema4d is a good program, although expensive. People have also used 3ds max and maya, which are even more expensive and harder to use. Blender is free, and although it isn't n00b friendly if you put in the time you can learn it. Blender produces results that are on par with all the other programs, so don't be put off by the word free. Remember, youtube is your friend.

Sample render by 04hockey:
Apr 24, 2013You should add some examples of your work so people know what they can expect from you if they hire you. Also for the Terms and agreements, I highly doubt anyone would be willing to split any revenue 50/50 for just some graphics. You will get more interested clients if you set a price for each type of graphic and if they want to hire you for a set time to contact you to negotiate a price.Posted in: Art Shops
Apr 19, 2013SteveCraftwood posted a message on The STEVE Chronicles: Book 1 - Survival - Chapter 4 released! - Taking Character Applications! - New chapter every week!ATTENTION!Posted in: Literature
The story is being rewritten under a new name. Herobrine WILL still be the main villian. All character applications are to be resubmitted. The rewrite will be much longer with much better quality and description. There will be a new chapter every Saturday. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy!
The STEVE Chronicles
This is my own Minecraft fan-fiction, centering around the adventures of Steve in the world of Minecraftia. I will try to bring out a chapter every few days, but sometimes it may be longer. 3-4 books are currently planned, but there will likely be more in the future as Minecraft releases new bosses and features.
An Animated Series?
Thanks to the incredible work of MineAheadTV, STEVE is now an animated series! The first few chapters will be here soon!
The Cubed One
The Dark Temple
The Jungle People
There was darkness.
It was within this darkness, this void, that he ruled supreme. He did not know his name. He did not have one. He was simply Void. But where there is darkness, there is a torch. A glimmer of light.
Notch and Void battled for a millennium. Finally, Notch managed to imprison Void deep within the darkness, sealed off from the world by a layer of material called Bedrock. Notch slowly created a world above this bedrock. He created trees, grass, lakes and rivers, stone and caves, ores and lava. He created pigs, sheep, cows, chickens, horses, wolves, ocelots, squid. But the world needed more then just small creatures and animals. He created the Minecraftian's, humanoid blocky men. They had incredible strength, and mined throughout the rocky caves and ravines of the world. They forged a great kingdom, ruled over by King Thoran. But Notch created others. He created the Testificate's, simple, peaceful folk, with a fond love of emeralds. Their villages collected a great deal of curious items over the years, and the people were well known as traders. Eventually, Notch decided to create yet another realm.
This realm would be deep below the vast void, but the core of the void, the center, the prison, would be contained within its crust. This realm was dubbed The Ether. It was a peaceful realm, with vast, cavernous structures of dirt and grass, and wonderful oceans. It was inhabited by the pigmen. They lived in harmony, in tribes scattered across the land. They traded and became good friends with the Minecraftian's, using portals crafted of obsidian to travel between the realms. Notch decided to create yet another realm, a realm that would allow his world to be complete. But he needed help. He created the Mojang Council, to assist him in overseeing the realm. He chose three senior members, Jeb, Dinnerbone, and Grumm. Together, they created The End. It marked the final realm, and the most curious. It was inhabited by the Farlander's, tall dark, green eyed creatures, incredibly smart. They visited the Overworld using three portals, located in underground strongholds deep below the earth. None of the other races knew of their existence.
Meanwhile, something had happened. King Thoran has been assassinated. Suddenly, the Minecraftian's were under siege. A dark force had risen. The Dark Lord of the Void, Herobrine. Lord Herobrine lay waste to the Minecraftian's, infecting them with a horrific plague, transforming them into zombies and skeletons. The son of King Thoran, Prince Ezerald, blamed the pigmen. The remaining forces of Minecraftian's lay waste to the pigmen empire. Unknown to them, the pigmen had heard of this 'Lord Herobrine', and had used vast gold deposits within lava chasms to amass great golden fortresses, and an army, the Golden Horde. These lava chasms had also contained the spawn of the Ghasts, enormous, white, squid-like creatures. The pigmen rode them into battle against the armies of the Minecraftian's. Lord Herobrine's corruption had all but obliterated his two greatest threats.
The remnants of the Minecraftian's fled the ether, and Herobrine descended down on the remaining pigmen, including Porcusaurum. His corruption knew no bounds, and Porcusaurum fell to the dark lures of power. The ghasts, fearing both Herobrine and the remaining humans, blasted open the lava chasms. The once brilliant world was burned into ashes. It became The Nether. The pigmen were resurrected as horrific beasts, the Zombie Pigmen. They had no master, and roamed the land in vicious packs and tribes. The golden fortesses, burned and blackened into dark red brick, became a symbol of Porcusaurum's power. He created guardians to watch over the fortress, Blazes. The tormented remains of the dead human soldiers became his elite soldiers, the Wither Skeletons. Herobrine had power, and most of all, domination.
But one dimension still resisted him. The armies of the Farlander's had barricaded their dimension's portals. But they were still within The Void. He created a beast, an Ender Drake, from the depth's of his realm. The Ender Dragon lay wastes to the cities of the Farlander's, all but obliterating them. The survivors became Endermen, and their eyes glowed purple with the power of the dragon. Notch oversaw what had happened, and he would not stand for it. He descended down to Herobrine's fortress within The Void, and battled him. Notch fought bravely, but Herobrine easily crushed him. Notch lay, dieing.
Meanwhile, a group of warriors, led by Jeb assaulted The Nether. Porcusaurum, seeing them attacking, knew it was time. He crushed a small, black skull, given to him by the dark lord. He was transformed, into a horrific creature, The Wither. The Wither lay waste to them, imprisoning the rest of the Mojang Council deep within The Nether. Back in the overworld, the Tesificate's barely survived, hiding within their houses during the night from the horrific hordes of zombies.
As Notch died, he had one, final image. Someone who would defeat Herobrine. Someone who would put an end to this madness. A savior.
I woke up.
I groaned, and slowly stood up. My head was spinning, and I wandered a few steps before once again collapsing, and drifting into darkness...
He was running. It was getting closer. He through his pickaxe into the ground. The sand began to crumble away. He leaped. He made the jump. He turned around, and he was there.
"There's no escape, Steve."
I jolted awake, again and stood up. I spun around. I was deep within a forest. The oak trees towered above me.
Where am I?
Who am I?
My name.... my name is Steve.
Somehow, on some primal, instinctive level I knew I needed food and shelter before nightfall. I walked up to a tree and stared up to it. "How am I ever going to chop you down?" I spoke to myself, resting a hand on the fine oak trunk. To my surprise, it cracked. I knocked on the trunk, and little cracks appeared all across it. I began to punch the tree down, and suddenly the block broke. A small, spinning replica of the wood landed on the ground. Suddenly it flew straight into my hand. I leaped back. "This sure is strange..." I thought to myself. I began to punch more trees, and before long I had a form of wooden workbench built, and some crude wood tools. "Now to work on a shelter" I said to myself. I set to work, punching and smashing.
I finally had a small wooden hut built. It was crude, but at least I had the time to gather a bit of cobblestone to make a furnace for warmth and light. I had also gathered some beef from some nearby cow's I had discovered, and also managed to herd them into a pen for breeding. The beef made some fine steak. I stared up at the sky, looking for the sun. It was beginning to set, and I knew it would be dark soon. I sighed, and lay down upon the soft grassy 'bed' I had made
I bolted awake. Something was out there. I grabbed my crude wooden sword off of the workbench and stepped outside. The moonlight shone down upon the forest. A small baby animal, a pig, was running in terror from some.... thing. It wore similar clothes to myself, a light blue tee and indigo jeans, but that's about where the similarities ended. It has black, empty eyes, dark green skin and dark brown dirt hair. It was like....
I charged at the creature with his sword, and stabbed my weapon into its back. The sword splintered, but it was to be effective. The creature moaned and collapsed. I bent down and looted it for resources. Some pieces of rotting flesh, an and a carrot. I snatched up the carrot, and was about to turn around when the pig oinked. I turned around. It looked tired, and starving.
"You want this?"
I held it out, and the baby pig squealed in delight and followed him into the cabin. He leaped up into my bed and munched it right up. I lay down, and the pig curled up into my arms.
"Goodnight, Cubie." I said.
I bolted up, my mind rushing with the events of the previous day. I looked around and saw Cubie fast asleep, curled up at the end of my bed.
"Rise and shine Cubie, we've got a big day ahead of us" I yawned. Cubie sat up with an oink, and leaped down onto the floor. I grabbed my makeshift stone sword off the workbench, and walked outside. I leaped up a tree to get a good look around the area. The forest stretched farther to the east, and there was a large range of mountains to the north. I turned south, and saw a sprawling beach, and wide open seas. Off to the west, the forest seemed to give way into open plains. I leaped back down and turned to Cubie.
"Ready to get going Cubie?" I asked.
"Alright then, lets get moving. We're going to make for the West, towards those open plains, maybe we can find a settlement."
I leaped onto Cubie's back, and we set off, my y small amount of belongings in a leather pack made from cow hide.
Several hours later...
"I think we're lost Cubie..." I said with a sigh.
We had absolutely no idea where we had gotten off to, and had ended up in the mountains. Together, we trekked over the last peak, and I spotted a horrific site.
Eight skeletal archers were marching four men into what looked like a temple or fortress, embedded into the mountainside. It was built out of stone brick, and carved into the main area was an enormous face, with large eyes, and a perpetual frown. Something about it was familiar, but he shook it out of his mind, and focused on the apparent prisoners.
"Let me go you monster!" one of them screamed.
"Now now then, lets not be hasty, we wouldn't want any unforunate 'accident's on the way to His Lordship, now would we" one of the archers said with a skeletal grin.
Upon closer inspection, the prisoners didn't look like normal people. Their heads were taller then normal, and their noses were enormous. Maybe the natives of this place? he thought to himself. The guards and the 'squidnose men' vanished into the fortress. I unsheathed my stone sword, and me and Cubie ran down the slope, and entered the fortress. Suddenly, I heard a noise behind my in the entryway.
The Cubed One
I bolted awake. Me and Cubie were trapped in a stone cage, hanging from an iron chain within an enormous cavern. The cage was only just barely large enough to contain the two of us, there wasn't much space to move at all. I tried to push himself up, but I collapsed in pain. My left arm was broken, likely during the explosion, caused by that green frowning creature. I pushed myself up using my other arm, and surveyed the area. We were in a large cavern transformed into a chamber, made of stone bricks. The ground emptied away into a pit of lava, and there was a narrow path leading up to a large chunk of rock towards the back. Atop the rock sat a throne. Upon closer inspection, it looked like it was made of skulls.
On the throne was a skeleton, adorned in shining golden armor. Next to the throne sat a spider, gnawing on the bones of some sort of animal, maybe a cow. The skeleton was clearly the ruler, some sort of lord or king. Suddenly, the large spruce doors at the entrance to the chamber swung open. The same eight skeletons from the entrance marched in, bows trained on the men. They marched right up to the king, where they bowed.
"Lord Calvariae" one of them said.
"I see you found the pestering Testificates meddling with His plans" he said with pleasure.
"Yes your Lordship. We caught them en route to the ancient temple"
"So then, you were trying to reclaim the lost blade? Still relying on that silly prophecy?"
"You fool!" one of them screamed. "The Cubed One will come, and you monstrous scum will burn in the Nether for all eternity!"
Lord Calvariae began to laugh. "The Cubed One? What do you think would become of your precious prophecy, if I had him in my clutches!"
My cage began to rattle, and swung down, hanging over the skeletal overlord. The Testificate's eyes went wide with shock and rage.
"You demon!" the same one who had spoken earlier screamed.
Lord Calvariae turned to his spider. "Dispose of him" he spoke.
The man screamed in pain as the spider leaped on him and picked him up with its monstrous fangs, then tossed him into the lava. The man's screams were cut silent.
"Douglas!" one of them screamed, this one in a green robe, unlike the other two, who wore brown robes.
"Now then, lets have some fun with your prophecy", Lord Calvariae chuckled, as all the skeletons in the room broke into an uproar of laughter."
Me and Cubie's cage swung yet again, hanging precariously over the lava. Cubie squealed in fear and nuzzled up to me.
"Its alright buddy, we'll get out of this"... I assured him
Somehow.... I thought to myself
"So, you're The Cubed One..." said Lord Cavariae. I expected you to be a bit more of a challenge. "Never met a Creeper before I see. Pathetic."
I barely heard him, too focused on trying to find a way to escape. Suddenly, I felt a clunk in my pocket, and lifted out an apple. It probably wouldn't work, I doubted it would work, but it was worth a shot...
I chucked the apple. It sailed through the air, and smashed into the rock wall, slipping straight into the lava. The skeletons broke into an uproar of laughter and their prisoners feeble attempts to escape.
The ground rumbled.
A few of the skeletons looked around warily.
The wall smashed open.
The throne room erupted into chaos. Four enormous golems made of iron ran through the breach in the wall, quickly dispatching some of the guards. Several Testificate's with bows and iron swords also ran in, at least nine. The skeletal overlord began firing off arrows, taking down three of the warriors. Several zombies leaped onto a golem, and it collapsed. In the mix of chaos, the villager in the green robes sliced the iron chains of my cage, causing it to smash open on the ground. He threw me an iron sword, and I barely had time to shout a "Thanks!" before he engaged in battle again, dual iron swords slicing through the mobs like clay. I charged Lord Calvariae, smashing his bow against the ground. He unsheathed a sword that appeared to be made of a form of quartz, and attempted to strike at me. Skeletons clearly aren't the best with swords, because it was easy to get inside his guard, and I struck him down, disarming him and grabbing his sword. He fled, leaping onto his spider and climbing through a gap in the ceiling. I put the iron sword on my back, and chopped up several more mobs. The mobs, without a leader, were easily defeated. We'd only lost three men and a golem, so it was easily a victory. The Testificate's turned towards me in awe.
"The Cubed One." the green robed villager spoke, and he bowed, as did the others.
"Look, I don't know what's going on or who the Cubed One is" he said. "I just woke up in this world about two days ago, and I have no idea what's going on."
"Come with us, to our village." the same villager said. "We will explain as much as we know. You must be hungry." he said, tossing me a piece of steak and a carrot. I handed Cubie the carrot, and ate up the steak. Outside, nine horses waited. Cubie was clearly tired, so I leaped on a chestnut horse with large white spots, and he climbed up with me. The horse winnied, and I looked at the nametag hanging around its neck.
"Emerald..." I muttered. "Its a good name."
The horse neighed appreciatively, and we set off, as the sunrise bathed the land in light.
*Cubie, and his relationship with Steve, is based off the music video Cube Land by Slamacow.
*Steve's voice sounds like Steve from ElementAnimation's videos, so its recommended to envision it like that, as does Herobrine's respectively.
