LEGO Classic Space scene 1

Description

This image is part of a project aimed at reproducing in 3D the classic space era illustrations found in LEGO sets.

First I modeled all the first 10 classic space era sets (about 1978-79) brick by brick in Pro|ENGINEER, then the scene was set up according to the image found in the instruction book of sets 442, 452 and 462 (in the U.S., sets from Europe had different scenes).

The rendering was done in Lightwave using a single main light (as in the real scene) and a dome light for ambient diffusion. This scene was HUGE: each model has all polygonal details like the LEGO marking on the studs so I had to setup and render the top and bottom half separately (the bottom half was more than 2 MILLIONS polygons alone!). It did not took too long though, less than an hour with global illumination and "soft" shadows.

I hope you'll enjoy it!
