Trying out some Lego graffiti in 2D and 3D styles. Feel like I barely scratched the surface with this theme.
Starting off with a tag "FMR".
In this 3D one, the idea was that the blue lines would trace a word seen from a certain angle. But it failed.
Back to 2D format. It was fun to blend the words in together structurally while having colour unrelated to the lettering. Also tried a dripping effect. Decided to base all my graf around the word "Shan" from here on.
See-sawing back to 3D:
This one's a bit too elegant. Looks like a typeface rather than graf.
Not sure I liked this one. The spray-can character gives it some respectibility I guess.
This one worked ok but in all bley it just destroyed the graffiti feel. Tried to colour it but mah slope selection didn't step up to the plate...
This was an interesting moc. It still reads "Shan" but I tried to blend in the bricks that make up the letters into the surrounding "landscape". Although it only really works if seen from directly above. I was going to try with colours so that the letters stood out but lost interest. Another cool effect would've been to have various sections look like they were being slid into place on rails, above and to the sides...
If you're interested, check out these amazing graffiti mocs. WAY better than mine, they were a ton of inspiration. Try yer own. Now!
My favorites are the layered gray one and the red-bley one, the latter looking like some colored version of an N-game level (best game ever in my opinion, but no please no arguments on that). I like that when you decide to build in a new theme, you experiment more times than once, people like me make one and stop there, but I've obviously not that smart :)
I saw this over on Flickr. Very nice stuff, Shannon! I really like that 3D one you had. I think the concept could work, just the execution was off. Maybe if you try it again, make the color spell something, and the shape spell something else. Anyways, very well done!
