  • I built a model! (OK, so it's LEGO again...)

    A LEGO Vignette is a small scene using a base 8 studs wide by 8 studs long.

    It basically forces LEGO builders to be a little more creative in a very small space if they want to convey the heart and soul of the scene they are creating. Think of it as just a tiny tiny diorama.

    Anyway, I built my first vignette today...

    This vignette is entitled "Last Stand".

    The brave warrior held the line valiantly against the marauding skeleton hordes, and even managed to kill one with his trusty sword, but with his comrades all dead, all seems lost and he now faces death himself as he tries to fend off attack with an axe.

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

          If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

              Thanks for the feedback guys! I know this is nothing compared to what you guys do...

              On a LEGO forum I frequent, their graphic guy posted yesterday that my first picture above is one of the coolest LEGO shots EVER - especially as I didn't even need to edit it digitally. That's kind of cool eh?

                  I have made a new one - but it's totally unrelated to the above and not even Military history related (as if skeletons were anyway)...

                  Want to see it?

                      OK, here goes. This one is simply titled "Intruder".

                      The Police had spent years trying to track down the bearded burglar in the red outfit, and now...they finally had their man.









                      I like to mess with lighting effects in my LEGO pictures, I was quite pleased with the fireplace effect I managed. Note that I have not edited these pictures in any way (it probably shows!).

                      The lighting in the fireplace is very low tech'. I just left the back of the fireplace open, put some coloured paper there to filter the light slightly and put a torch behind that!

                      Here's my exclusive behind the scenes picture.



                      I used the low natural light from the window to illuminate the scene generally but left the torch really to do the main job of highlighting the fire.

                      Of course...Santa would be horribly burned if he came down that chimney, but I guess he is magical...right?

                          I'm off work with a chest infection so I'm kind of bored...it's not as if I can even sleep as I just cough myself to pieces so I have to do something.

                          Anyway, this one is kind of an experiment. I don't know if it has worked or not, but I'm on medication so my mind is a little frazzled right now.

                          I call it "Escape to the Cave".

                          The brave knight had fought long and hard with the Dragon but the battle was too much for him... He flees to a mysterious glowing cave containing water that has magical healing properties, but he can only wonder how long it is before the Dragon finds him...

                            You just had to show us the behind the scenes stuff and spoil the illusion....

                            Great stuff Doc, you have an overactive imagination.
