I'll try to get a higher-res version of this uploaded. for now, here is my latest creation, the Nintendo GameCube logo. Interesting to note, I've never played a GameCube or even an emulator. But when I was little I was a major Nintendo supporter, guess that lives on in me. The great thing about making Legos on the computer is that it doesn't matter if they would work in real life You could definitely assemble this in real life... but I'm not sure that it would stand up. maybe on a baseplate *shrugs*
Over 1500 images of flags, real and fictional, past and present, either in use within the united states, or based on the united states flag. (For instance, the Futurama Earthican flag is in here somewhere ) This has been an idea floating around in my head for some time. after hunting the internet for good flag images, and running several iterations of the mosaic making algorithm, I'm pretty happy with the result. I wish some of the stars had a bit more contrast but an image overlay would be the only way to effectively do that, and I think image overlays are cheating. Appropriately timed finishing this deviation a few days before Independence Day Some flags are cropped to fit a 4:3 ratio.
I might post a second version of this. I have mixed feelings about how this turned out. At first I thought that the transparency wasn't working right but I think that it is. I thought about making this chrome. I think that'd look cool but POV-Ray seems off on it's ray-tracing when I use chorme. For obvious reasons I could not use the original colors, but this is a cool effect. Feedback is welcomed. Full download is 1280x1024. Some restrictions apply. Void where prohibited. Batteries not included.
Samus Aran Lego Mosaic, this one is free-standing (if it were real). The last freestanding one I made included pieces of varying heights. I started to make this one that way, but these pieces are not common to most people's Lego collection, so all bricks are standard height. Full-size image is 1280x1024.
I did a recolor of the N64 model available on [link] In addition to the simple recolor (I tried to make it look like the "Fire" color but it looks more goldenrod), I also modeled a simple (read low-quality) control to go with it. I also changed the game from Ocarina of Time to Super Mario 64.
This is inspired by the Phoenix from Descent 3 by Outrage. I liked the concept of the mercenaries using Black Pyro-GLs and GXes, so I thought that there might be rogues that used a Phoenix-based design, even though the Phoenix was meant to be a military ship (Afterall, MD-1032 used a Phoenix and he was basically a mercenary for the science-group). The downloadable version is 1600x1200, and full view is 1024x768 so feel free to use as a wallpaper
A model of the fighter craft from the Descent game series. The Pyro GX is made from cardboard and paper only. Painted using acrylic model kit paints. Missile tubes are different than the classic Pyro GX but follows the new Pyro GX from "Into Cerberon", a Descent like mod for DooM 3.
I have not yet assembled this one. If I do I'll post it here. Here is an example of what one of these will look like (with different pictures): [link] My Uncle is a Whovian, so I'm going to give this to him for his birthday. I just have never made papercraft to give as gifts before, so I need to work on making them more durable than normal. I was going to put the actors names on the pentagons, but my friend said Whovians would recognize them all and the names would just add clutter, so I took her advice and removed them. Dr. Who is copyright of the BBC I'm pretty sure. But this template is my creation. On the template, the names are listed in order, center-out counter clockwise.
I spent hours tweaking with the settings on this. and to be honest I never got 100% happy with it. But I don't think most artists are ever 100% satisfied with their final products. I am also working on one based on a color image, but that's proving exponentially more difficult. Still, it's worth it to pay tribute to such an influential individual Edit: Here is the other one I mentioned above: [link]
