I'm going to consolidate all my Lego stuff here. I've started with Lego blocks because you can learn some really interesting techniques when creating them.
Most of my Lego stuff will be Star Wars Lego. First up is the Tie Interceptor. This set has 703 piece that I'm trying to model accurately and to scale. Some things like the Lego lettering on top of the studs will be textured but each block is to size and all blocks top and bottom have been modeled.
The first image shows some of my base blocks.
The large square block in the front provided a lot of problems but I think I learned close to 5 different techniques for creating the circle cutouts. My way might not have been the cleanest, but it works for me. Since I didn't have the actual piece in front of me I wasn't sure how the piece looks on the bottom so that is currently the only piece I have taken creative liberties with.
I'm using just a standard material which will be changed later. I'm using a single skylight to light the scene and provide some minor shadows.
So have a look. Any critiques is welcome - good or bad.
the nice this is you have the pieces and you just 'put' them together...
looks great so far me jealous i didnt take my father than a few pieces
I guess it's time to update to a quad core, 64-bit and add about 8 more gigs of ram. lol...
