I got super inspired by Cloudbreaker's minecraft version of Gobwin Knob, and thought it would be fun if I tried to take on a place in erfworld. After doing some scouting in the old comics I decided the temple of the thinkamancers would be a good place, very angular so it translated to minecraft well. The star was the hardest part. It took me 3 tries to get the star to my liking, and probably close to half the total build time
for the first image I tried to match the reference shot in the comic to the best of my ability. Some of the geometry doesn't work out the same, but I think I got pretty close. The original is here
in the main comic
The main temple. I used stained glass for the pilars, and cored them with whatever I thought was best. left to right that is: Red stained clay, gold block, lime green stained clay, lapis block, magenta stained clay, magenta wool.
The main approach. The tall skinny trees are orange stained clay. I had a hard time making the walkway up look even vaguely like a curve. curves are hard in minecraft.
The meeting room. I couldn't figure a way to make the stairs glow red, so I just left them as solid white. On the colored chairs the armrests are banners.
The back buildings, the trees, and the eye symbol. I think the trees are probably a little more vibrant than in the original art. I considered using a mod with colored leaves, or altering my texture pack to have them, but I wanted the project to be entirely in base minecraft, so I worked with what was available.
