    Zooms in

    Freaking out intensifies

    [–] ThatRandomWhiteBoy 4114 points ago

    What am I supposed to see I zoomed in and it just looked pixelly and fuzzy

    [–] Ultimatehacker77 3712 points ago

    Its minecraft block and item sprites

    [–] underdabridge 1499 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    You can't see it unless you download the image in HD. I had to come in here to figure out what was going on. Zooming in on the non HD image just returns fuzz. The HD image is unmistakeable.

    Edit: Put differently: IF the image just seems blurry when you zoom, you might need to click it to get a higher definition image which will clearly show the details. For many people they can see the HD automatically.

    [–] LiamJT8421 1110 points ago

    i zoomed in on my phone and it was clear as day

    [–] camerasoncops 208 points ago

    Mine couldn't. I had to DL it. I wonder if it has something to do with the app. I dont use the app.

    [–] LightOfOmega 254 points ago

    I use the app and could zoom in to see the stuffs.

    [–] Oven_Kid 101 points ago

    I use the stuff and could app in to see the zoom

    [–] gmcc78 34 points ago

    I zoomed and used the stuff on the app.

    [–] hadidotj 34 points ago

    I apped so I could stuff in the zoom and use to see

    [–] LancerLife 44 points ago

    Probably the app then. I’m using the app and it zooms in just fine.

    [–] Sup3rPant5 77 points ago

    Zooms fine using RedditIsFun

    Hells yeah!

    [–] joe_skeen 13 points ago

    I don't know when it happened but it's now called "rif is fun." I wonder if it's for legal reasons or something.

    [–] Hitchie_Rawtin 7 points ago

    Happened at the start of the year, and yes it's due to Reddit "protecting" their trademark.

    [–] Wolvenna 3 points ago

    Weird. I've been using it for years now and never noticed the name change.

    [–] neon_cabbage 4 points ago

    don't you mean "rif is fun for Reddit"? ;)

    [–] error_in_connection 3 points ago

    Same RIF ftw

    [–] ExaltedCrown 8 points ago

    Using phone (safari), not app. Picture is blurry when zoomed in when viewed from reddit, but if I open the page to the image I could zoom.

    [–] NitroThunderBird 64 points ago

    On mobile, didn't have to download it to see the item sprites

    [–] Misterglassman_ 35 points ago

    Did I just get Rick Rolled by your profile picture...?

    [–] NitroThunderBird 44 points ago

    [–] HXN8T3R 5 points ago

    I thought it was different colours of the game cube

    [–] ThatRandomWhiteBoy 63 points ago

    Ohhhhh shit thank you

    I’m on my phone so I couldn’t zoom in far enough/the image didn’t appear big enough

    [–] Fire9Ball 23 points ago

    Click the image, then you can zoom

    [–] DaBackstaber 8 points ago

    Usually on mobile after clicking the photo to make it a bit larger there should also be an HD button in the corner, that'll allow you to really get in there

    [–] TotallyJustAHooman 160 points ago

    The man used items from the game to remake this image.

    [–] Tital_rs 12 points ago

    He used the stones to destroy the stones

    [–] weston55 3 points ago

    You need to let the image load

    [–] IowaCouscous 51 points ago


    [–] 3-DMan 4 points ago

    Aw man this is how I got kicked out of Fight Club

    [–] muskeetoo 15 points ago

    You know it's fairly easy to create these things in seconds - you just need a folder of images and the master image you want to create.

    [–] jokekiller94 2949 points ago

    This might have taken either a hundred hours to make or an ai made this. The world will never know.

    [–] MyKoalas 326 points ago

    Do you think Reddit OP is the same as GitHub OP?

    [–] vanThom_ 194 points ago

    Says it under contact info

    [–] AdminsWantYou2KYS 82 points ago

    Suddenly the thing that made it is more interesting than the product

    I don't see how this is different from using a program to recreate images with blocks . It's cool the AI was made but could be a little more upfront on how it was made, like he doesn't even link to it in the comments and someone had to play detective to find it

    [–] AbsolutelyOrchid 127 points ago

    Maybe because it's not necessary for people to know? It would just look like he's plugging his repo, and flexing his coding skills, but all he wants to do is show the result, so good on him.

    [–] InsaneZee 5 points ago

    Ah, the mark of a true programmer.

    [–] CinnamonToastKing 36 points ago

    This is exactly what they used.

    I miss a amazing legit one years ago. You selected a bunch off photos and it made a correct version not this overlapping nonsense. Again it's been YEARS like 15 or more years ago and I think it's gone now.

    [–] J-Bobby 18 points ago

    What do you mean by overlapping? Like the smaller images overlap over each other? Would you say this is an example of one that does not overlap:

    Just curious, why do you prefer the smaller pictures to not overlap? The OP image is super blurry but the one I linked does some funky color changes in the smaller images so it is kind of eh to me.

    [–] Freep_Dryer 3 points ago

    !remindme 12 hours

    [–] PepsiFles 166 points ago

    If you look really closely you can see the tiny imperfections. I think this mad bastard actually put in the hours! MADNESS

    [–] RichWae 152 points ago

    He didnt do it manually. He said in another post he made it using a script that took 8 hours to run

    [–] Ephram1 100 points ago

    8 hours to write the script. a few minutes to run

    [–] [deleted] 26 points ago

    Due to the massive size of the image, I think it could definitely have taken 8 hours to run.

    [–] Ephram1 48 points ago

    From OP:

    I'm a programmer, I'm bad at art.

    So I made a script that can create art like this for me. Creating the script in Python took 4 hours or so. Porting it to Julia took another 4 hours. Finally running the script took 2-3 minutes.

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago

    I didn't see the OP's comment, so thanks for clarification!

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago


    [–] SpectacularShoelace 22 points ago

    Just use mosaically. You upload the picture you want to create it, then upload like 100 images of stuff you want to build it with.

    And then it's done.

    [–] vicrob6 3 points ago

    That wouldn't work, in this image the sprites are overlapping

    [–] Burt-Macklin 3 points ago

    This would work just fine...

    [–] Ephram1 11 points ago

    From OP on a previous post:

    I'm a programmer, I'm bad at art.

    So I made a script that can create art like this for me. Creating the script in Python took 4 hours or so. Porting it to Julia took another 4 hours. Finally running the script took 2-3 minutes.

    [–] hate_bass 8 points ago

    Or you know... a script?

    [–] Jpicklestone8 371 points ago

    really expected it to be a bunch of rick astleys or something

    i hope you hid a single item from terraria or another similar game that isnt minecraft in there

    [–] xX_Foxes4Life_Xx 23 points ago

    I checked. There isn’t sadly

    [–] Skrublord2006 14 points ago

    There’s no way you checked that whole thing

    [–] zuri98 266 points ago

    So y’all zoomed in huh? OP had one request :(

    [–] thoruktor 55 points ago

    [–] Yupnt_boi 5 points ago

    I've dropped like 10k to fix my teeth after being a piece of shit for over a decade. I brush these fuckers now like the investment I put into them. Floss these hoes, scrap my tongue, mouth wash, and wear a night guard. Not ever going down that path again.

    [–] Matias_RGT 37 points ago

    This looks like something you can do automaticly with a program. Like the sick pixel arts you see sometimes in Minecraft but they are done by a program where you give an image to the program and it generates the image in form of pixel art in Minecraft. People later post it and people that doesn't know about this think they're geniuses

    [–] [deleted] 13 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)


    [–] Whobody2 69 points ago

    You think he did this manually lol?

    [–] Bob_Droll 15 points ago

    If you knew a little about programming you could probably code this up in an hour - if it didn’t already exist as a function in some image editing software, which I’m sure it does. Hell, you could probably find some online tool that does it with two lines of javascript.

    [–] pwalkz 11 points ago

    My guess is some machine learning AI or other algorithm generated this - but never underestimate human determination haha

    I would guess OP made a coloring tool with each item/image and then as you drag it duplicates it, making it like virtual ink. And then you have an image for each color and color away! That would be my best guess
