Dayshot: The above gif progresses as follows: Minecraft 3D art as it's meant to be viewed, as a 2D-ish render; Minecraft 3D art in-game; Minecraft 3D art in-game, but closer. It's quite the transformation.

The build, made by Tober888 of the MysticAbsents group, is a riff on Roy Lichtenstein's famous Pop Art piece, the Drowning Girl. When viewed as a 2D picture, it works great. And when you look at it up close, you can spot all kinds of cool details, like:
