    cool, great work on the lego dude. As said before, you could try to texture the "lego" with a bump map

    Yup, already done - I'm just turning it off right now to speed up the renders (I'm really impatient. :lol: ).

    Naw, it's a render, the bricks have little "lego" stamped into the top of the bumps. It looks darn good though!

    They didn't have visors back then.

    Uh, yeah they did. They just didn't have any that perfectly fit the space helmet. They just reused the round helmet visors, so there's a gap left for the mouth to be exposed.

    Why would the helmet have holes for a visor if they didnt have visors?

    I don't know, but they didn't have visors:

    I'm surprised no-ones thought about releasing a large scale pack of 3d lego pieces.

    It's been done. Check out ldraw.org. The part library is in a fan-created text format, but it is easy to convert.

    Here's a render with all of the little "lego" bumps on the pegs turned on:

    Shouldn't this be moved to the physical modeling section? :D

    Really really nice!

    My god I had this model too... it's amazing... great work man, stunning.

    HEHE I'm actually rather proud that you choose to model this... since LEGO is Danish and all:p

    True. I'm just saying that you CAN put visors on them. They just don't look all that great. :devil:

    Wow. All hail. :)

    Wow! What program are you using? I think you nailed the textures. The bricks looked "wet" in some of the earlier renders, but this one is amazing. Nice Work!

    Gotta agree with everyone so far, this is frickin cool :) very nice work mate :)
  • stonkystonky339 Posts: 0Member
    Thanks all, it's always nice to hear that your work is appreciated. :) I think I got the Galaxy Explorer for Christmas or my birthday one year when I was 11 or 12 years old - best present ever! And I love that my son is as excited by Lego now as I was back then (and who do you think keeps him fully supplied with Star Wars lego? ;)).

    I'm working on the $^#&! transparent pieces now. :lol:

    Going for a ride:

    Nice work on the latest image.

    I picked up about 50 of those little space suited guys on ebay a few years back, they were in a display and all the parts had been glued together so they cant come appart, but the arms and legs still move.

    Always wondered why if yellow was the skin colour for lego people there was also a yellow space suit.

    Not something they have to worry about now they have gone to real skin tones on the minifigs
