The Hermits’ IRL talents
Hermitcraft is a testament to the amazing talents of the people that inhabit it, but those people have incredible talents outside of Minecraft too! Here are just a few that I’ve compiled:
Mumbo (cinematography) & Zedaph (writing + acting) - The Steal is a short comedy film created by Mumbo, Zedaph, and Zedaph’s irl friend Jack. It’s hilarious, plus the behind the scenes shows Mumbo and Zedaph together irl. in Mumbo’s house. which blows my mind.
Bdubs (drawing) - he made this digital art of The Red Zone and I was blown away... like sir? your Minecraft building is artwork enough we don’t deserve this talent!?
Bdubs again (songwriting + singing) - Bdubs wrote and performed the old intro song for Building with Bdoubleo and it’s so nostalgic for me
Doc (gardening) - I haven’t actually watched it but I think this is the main video... and there was something about the GOAT and tomatoes... I forget
Scar (drawing) - what comes before artwork? Other artwork. These are the sketches he made for his S7 snail starter base and I’m pretty sure there were some for other builds too but you get the idea
Wels (singing) - you must listen to his version of the Wellerman (and all the other stuff on his soundcloud too)
Xisuma (guitar) - Metallica cover complete with scream mask
Grian (photography) - I don’t know if Grian is actually that into photography but the pictures from his base inspiration video are so cool
Ren (singing + guitar) - there’s a number of songs Ren has sung on stream but Lua by Bright Eyes is my favorite. his voice is so soothing
Other things there aren’t really links for: Impulse and Stress play the drums, Bdubs, Keralis, Tango, Impulse and others are amazing parents, and let’s not forget their (former) IRL jobs like Cub being an astrophysicist and Cleo a teacher. Do you need any more reasons to be astounded by the hermits?

hermit hands :3 (some of them at least)
my rambling and details below
animal hybrids hands are all got 4 fingers, so Ren, Grian and Gem. Ren’s palm is more stretched and his fingers are shorter. he got pads and claws, because dog. Gem got strong and muscular arms, but small and round hands (partly because of the hooves). Grian is a parrot hybrid, so he got parrot hands (obviously). his fingers can be divided to thumb-pinky and two middle fingers to make gripping and hanging on things easier. the skin on his hands is hard and rough, and he has claws!
mumbo is a potato. maybe someone ate his fifth finger, maybe he always had four, I don’t know.
Scar’s hands are strong and calloused because of all the grind. he has a lot of scars, most of them old, some are new, some from hurting during building and work, some are from battles. his hands are also very warm, i’ve just decided.
wels hands are worn from countless fights and hours spent with the sword. I don’t really know how to describe it, but his knuckles are more visible and the skin between them is thin and rough. if you take his hand, it would be more dry and tense than soft. the scar on his palm is from gripping the blade of the sword with his bare hand. did he do it by mistake when he was young or was it the only way to save his life in the battle? we’ll never know. (and never see because he wears armor and glowes 24/7)
Stress’ hands look soft, but they are strong and experienced. like the hands of a baker. she got corns from all the hard work, but they’re not that visible because she takes good care of her hands and injuries.
Tango has big hands with long and thin fingers. which is pretty helpful when you need to work with redstone and tight little contraptions. the tips of his fingers and knuckles are red all the time from redstone (hopefully), and his hands are always cold.
Doc’s hand looks massive, but in comparison to the rest of his body it’s pretty small. his paws are soft and fluffy, he got pads to reduce the sound and no claws. perfect hands for big warm hugs uwu. but despite visible softness, he is still very strong, and can just swat you like a fly.
Pearl got really flexible fingers and hands in general. you know those people who can bend their fingers backwards? thats Pearl. her hands are also calloused and tense, but she got smooth and soft skin. (soft skin, not hands, it’s important)
X’s body is a robotic costume, but there’s his glove fot the size comparison. hes a big boy. there are pads on his palm, something similar to the pads on cycling gloves if you ever touched one. they are pretty worn and have a lot of scratches from all the work.
EX’s hands are small and soft, the pads on his palms are in almost perfect condition. it’s very obvious that the man hasnt worked a day in his life *smile*. or maybe he just takes good care of it, which is very unlikely
aaaand this is it! thank you for reading hdgshgs
if you have any suggestions or headcanons for these or other hermits I would always love to hear them!!
