World of Warcraft's Spirit Healer recreated in Minecraft pixel art

Nearly lost in the shuffle of patch 5.1's release, this Minecraft pixel art from Paradox (YouTube channel SpoofGaming) appeared on our radar back at the end of November. The recreation of World of Warcraft's iconic Spirit of Redemption took over 15 days of work and over 250,000 blocks (representing pixels) to construct. While the art surely could have been done easier and more quickly in something as simple as MSPaint, it's fascinating to see the build done in Minecraft's game world, which has a far more limited palette and requires manual placement of every single block.

If you're impressed by this build, don't miss some of the other Minecraft builds we've highlighted previously such as scale recreations of Ragnaros and the entirety of Kalimdor.
