Recently my friend introduced me to Waifu2x which is an image scaling and noise reduction program for the anime art style. After being specifically told by a friend not to use Waifu2x on pixel art I decided I knew exactly what I wanted to do, upscale the entire Minecraft texture pack. Default Minecraft textures are 16x16 pixels, I decided to upscale them by four times to 64x64.

This lead to some very interesting and weird results with the textures no longer tiling correctly. The textures also just had a lot of “creases” with sharp black squiggly lines going through the texture. Below are some reference images for how it looks. For those crazy enough to want to download this texture pack click here to download it.

Hello reader. I do not normally like to put advertisements or promotions on my website, but recently a good friend of my Jaden Ann Scrivener died in a car crash. She was known in the community as the most caring and energetic person around. She was a beam of sunshine and happiness brightening up the day of anyone who interacted with her. If you could please donate to her memorial fund. All the proceeds will go to the Ray of Hope Medical Missions which facilitates life-changing surgeries, reduces infant mortality, and provides mission opportunities locally.
