Canvas Texture Pack 1.17 → 1.8.9

Author Gealx3


The Canvas texture pack is a great exception among the Faithful packs because it makes Minecraft realistic. The creator manages not to clutter the textures despite the high resolution. By the way, the creator took a lot of time to rework the textures.

Especially when you take a closer look, you’ll notice that the slogan “Minecraft in Brush” makes sense. Gealx3 shows in YouTube videos how he paints the textures by hand with the image editor, which is really impressive. In addition, he always creates three different versions. First, he always does the 256x resolution and then scales it down. The other two versions are 128x and 64x. He originally only had these two resolutions, but luckily he decided to make the blocks and items even more realistic. Many players would also like a 32x version, but that is not planned for the future. You can download the “original” Faithful instead.

Furthermore, there was another innovation in the course of time. The Canvas texture pack for Bedrock is being released for free via Mediafire. This is quite astonishing when you consider how much work went into it. Others charge money for much fewer textures. Nevertheless, you have the possibility to support Gealx3 via Patreon. He doesn’t plan to stop the project, but it would definitely motivate him to earn some money with it.


Canvas is compatible with these Minecraft versions: 1.17.1 – 1.17 – 1.16.5 – 1.16 – 1.15.2 – 1.15 – 1.14.4 – 1.14 – 1.13.2 – 1.13 – 1.12.2 – 1.12 – 1.8.9 – 1.8

Canvas is for many Minecraft gamer the best Faithful texture pack. On the one hand because of the design and on the other hand because there have been regular updates for years. These are also absolutely necessary, because the pack is still not complete. However, this does not diminish the fun of the game, because you can simply use another texture pack that adds the missing textures. It’s best to choose one in the same style.
