Those mipmaps on the minecraft textures are killing me, dude. They always did and always will.
The models are cool but just letting the pixels be pixels goes a long way to keep the aesthetic together.
Allow me to say that I somewhat agree with you, but not that It looks bad, but that my opinion, BUT... As you can see I'm largely not using minecraft, textures anymore for that most part as you can see in the dirt and grass, Which I made from scratch further emphasize the look I want. However This is just my first attempt. I do want sharp details, in certainly places. For example one thing that really bother my honestly is the leaves if theres one thing I don't like it's the leaves and believe it or not the texture I use for them was done by me from scratch.
Personally I feel that's a place where sharp detail is necessary.
And in a bit of personal philosophy, I say when you think something you've done looks bad, Personally I like to KEEP RUNNING AT IT HEAD FIRST! Either one of two possibilities exist. Either there is no way to make it work or that magic combination of things that do make it work I've yet to discover. And I always stubbornly stay on the latter side of the debate, it's just more fun here, I'm certainly trying things I've never done before. And I'm honestly convinced I'm trying something with textures that I don't think I seen anyone else try before. Take that for what you will, but I say that's good enough of a reason to press on.
The minecraft theme doesn't really bother me anymore. I've fapped to much worse tbh.
It's working! I'm NORMALIZING IT!
All joking aside, not to deafen with the sound of me patting myself on the back but honestly I think I've done a pretty good job translating the minecraft aesthetic to something like this, a lot better than a lot of artists do, some of which think is quite good... most of which I think is horrendously bad.
I thought the one second from the left was an ork with that hair honestly, thought it was a horn.
