Illustrious Resource Pack 1.7.4

I got involved in texture work very early on in my Minecraft career. I started my first pack only about two or three months after hearing about the game. Things were a lot simpler in those days, back around the first full release. As many of you know, my first attempt at a texture pack was absoulute garbage. A horrible bucket fill, with terrible colors and disgusting shading. I had never done anything artistic outside of art class in elementary school; never picked up a pencil or a brush. I had no artistic experience whatsoever. I, in my foolishness and naiveté, posted the pack I had made here to the forums. The feedback I recieved, while harsh, was unanimous: go back, learn what you’re doing, and try again, and who knows, you may end up being somebody. Instead of storming off in a huff, never to return to the scene again, I decided to take the advice of the experienced artists I had talked to, and start again. After many months, and many heartbraking computer crahses, I created the first texture for Illustrious (then called Fancy Shmancy). I posted the first few textures I made, only two of which now remain in the pack, and recieved some positive feedback. I continued to create new textures, astounded at the response I was getting. I had obviously improved. As I made more and more art, I gained more and more technical knowlege, to the point where I am now one of the top posters in the Resource Pack Help forum. I continued adding textures, creating the virtual world that I wanted, all the while gaining new skills and meeting new people (after a fashion).
The purpose of this pack is simple: textures that are beatiful to look at. All my textures are made with the utmost care, perfected and refined until the convey my image of what I think the game should look like.
