This is how I would create a LEGO® Steve from Minecraft.
About this creation
To show you what a better looking Steve from Minecraft would look like. To show how inaccurate the Official Set of Minecraft was, especially with a Steve that was smiling. It doesn't look like it but I really did use bricks to build it. It's just that only the front is showing. The picture is pretty small so you'll have to peer closely at it. It is obviously based on this above Steve picture.
