About this creation


I am nearly finished with my reorganization of the collection, but got the itch last night to build something and avoid writing the next Glomshire Knights strip -- don't hold that against me. This is what I came up with: two vignettes. Feeling inadequate, I also tried lighting them in different ways just to prove to myself that I can take a decent photo if I want to -- full disclosure: I have won a photography award on the professional level for sports photography, therefore I should know what I'm doing. The photo below is me trying to be Alex Eylar . . . I'll never be that cool.



Ok, backstory on vig #1: Bob the magician makes an appearance in a swirling cloud of smoke. The Wolfpack dude draws his blade in surprise, but he wouldn't have a chance against Bob's awesome power!


This vig started with me just playing around with the 2x4 round plates which I should have snagged more of at Brickworld *kicks self for not listening to Heather. I thought of stairs at first, then this scene popped into my head . . . like magic (groan).




STORMWYRM'S HUNGRY!




Vig #2 is the result of messing around thinking about wall details for a possible castle project. Didn't like it too much, but what was going to be a breaking and entering vig became something a little more fun. Be careful what you wish for when you want to know what's on the other side of the fence, I guess.

Sweet little smoke effect! And yeah, you should have gotten more at BW... but that's as much Mitzi's fault as it is yours... wait, are we still talking about lego? ~ Chris

Quoting Mark Kelso Not bad with that swirling smoke. I've got some smoke to do with one of my latest projects, and it ain't as easy one might think!
Per Garth's suggestion I took another shot at the smoke -- photo should be up later today.

I'm starting to like making vigs. I still need to improve and I just can't seem to have the right attention to detail.

Quoting Garth Danielson The effect might be improved by adding a second swirl of smoke going in the other direction. see ya. garth
I'll give it a try. Didn't even think about doing a second swirl!

Nice smoke effect. Heather is right. Always buy more than you think you'll ever need, then get another bunch of them. The effect might be improved by adding a second swirl of smoke going in the other direction. Last year at our local show one of the guys took clear 1x2 plates and made a waterspout out of them, and used that to suspend a rowboat in it. see ya. garth

The STORMWYRM'S HUNGRY! is very nice, but the first one with the smoke cloud is brilliant - love the effect. Lee.
