Bob Ross was best known for “The Joy of Painting”, an popular television program that aired from 1983 to 1994 on PBS. Unlike Ross, whod uring his 20-year tenure with the U.S. Air Force developed a taste for painting after attending an art class at the Anchorage U.S.O. club, YouTube user “SmallishBeans” is not an artist by any means, but rather a Minecraft fan. So, he decided to attempt to recreate one of the late painter’s works in the game, which involved logging into a second account. Read more for a video of the process and additional information.
Why did he need to log into a second account? Well, the character was faced away from the painting at a distance to enable him to see the painting come together in real-time. Yes, a few mods, like one allowing him to quickly place large chunk of blocks, were used to finish the masterpiece. On a related note, did you know that Ross painted three versions of almost every painting featured on his show? The first was painted prior to taping set on an easel, which was used to create the second copy (the one viewers saw get painted), and then a third after the show for inclusion in his instructional books.
