Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things - these will be marked as spam and removed! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways"/"upright"/"standing" slabs (yes, we see you).

    Cool idea, but this seems like an idea for a mod to me. I think the focus of Minecraft should be on building, and it seems like this would be a pretty niche interest for players.

    However, a greater variety of paintings would be amazing, since they haven't been changed in years!

    This is a great idea! This would add the ability for another profession on servers as well!

    I would treat it as a map (128x128) and for every 10 pixels would require 1 dye of the color.

    Cool idea! Maybe another thing that can be paint is a block so, player can have their own patterns and also we can only just paint on 1 layer of block so another layer of the block doesn't affecting another layer of block.

    I love this idea! As an artist, I have been a little frustrated when trying to create my own 'pixel art' using a blank stretch of ground and a ton of materials. I know that this might not really fit in with the 'theme' of Minecraft - building & mining - but it would allow more people to show off more of their creativity using less materials.

    Wonderful idea,I understand  completely as a designer and an artist.It is extremely frustrating to not have  custom artwork In your build,or to just enjoy or experiment with.

    great idea but i think the canvas should be smaller I wouldn't have the patience to finish a painting if it had 4096 pixels maybe it should have 36 pixels (6x6)

    Ive been wanting this feature for a very long time. At first I just wanted more painting varieties, but this would add something really cool to the game, especially multiplayer. Artistically talented players could ply their talent to trade with other players. The possibilities are literally endless, and anyone who has ever used MS Paint (everyone) could use the UI. Everything except the easel is in the game already, and with the addition of archeology, I think the game is moving in a direction that this would fit.

    It would be the most popular addition to the game hands down, period. Minecraft is about being creative after all.

    To add to this, I would like to see the painting be able to be placed in an item frame, especially an invisible one, like how mapart can. This will allow us to basically make block textures on the fly that are flush with the block face.

    This will basically almost solve people begging for vertical slabs too, as well as asking for certain variants of blocks.
