Well I've been using this as my PC wallpaper for years now. I got it off Google images and I use it as my Facebook wallpaper also but for Halloween I switch them both to something more fitting the season. Did you create this?
ghostfire Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
I did indeed create this. :)
DyslexicGamer Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2015
Well now I feel kind of bad that I was using it without your permission. Like I said I just kind of snag it off Google images years ago

This has got to be the defining picture of Minecraft. When someone tells me that Minecraft is a kid's game, I point them to this picture. :)
Wait a that a STICK in the player's hand? Is this player trying to fend the monsters off with a STICK? That just increased the sense of desperation emnating from this picture by tenfold. :/
I can imagine that the player was returning from a long and successful caving expedition, with a backpack full of diamonds and other valuable treasures. It is late evening, and the player navigates by one of the many giant Nether Portals that they had previously built, on their way home. Some Zombie Pigmen are wandering aimlessly around the Nether Portal, and all seems quiet and peaceful. Then, the Ghast drifts out of the Portal, and begins firing. The player casually deflects the Ghast Fireball...into one of the Zombie Pigmen. With a scream of rage, the pigmen charge at the player, and in a panic, the player drops their sword and sprints away. The player's problems are just beginning, as it is now fully nighttime, and the monsters are crawling out of their caves. Batting away zombies and spiders that get too close with the first thing that is at hand--a stick--the player runs as far and as fast as possible. Tiring quickly, char finally stops at the edge of a ravine, and turns to face the horde of monsters that have assembled. After a valiant defense, during which a wolf is struck, the player is brought down by a Spider Jockey, and attempts to crawl away. All hope is lost when the player looks up into the enraged visage of an Enderman. But the last thing the player hears is a quiet hsssssssssss...

Not even a sword made of unbreakable diamond can get Steve out of this one, may as just add the ender dragon and herobrine and make it a total cluster fuck.

If this was really how minecraft looked, I think the one that would scare me the most is the spider. I mean, look how big it is!
ghostfire Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I think the player and the skeleton are the same size, and the skeleton sometimes rides the spider, sooo...
Kaptain-Klovers Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014  Hobbyist Writer

I agree, but look at the creeper. ;-;

Hes pretty big to. x3

Twytchums Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2014
So... Was the pumpkin because of the upcoming Halloween when you made this?
Or maybe it was just an artistic choice?
That would be an extraordinary coincidence, since putting one on your head would actually stop the Enderman from wanting to kill you to death.
...Or did you know that, and it's a deliberate reference?
Either way, I loved this piece when I first saw it.
That was some time ago, but was directed back again.
Still love it. ;)
ghostfire Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
To be honest, it was mostly because I thought the pumpkin would look best. Minecraft doesn't (or at least, didn't then) have a lot of item variety, and the brightly colored, round pumpkin against the enderman's dark pointiness appealed to my artistic sensibilities. :P
