To kick-start the summer, I made two new micro-scale starships, similar in style to THESE . Enjoy.
The shape for this beaut came out of nowhere, I had been trying for months to make a starship of this style in dark blue, yellow, black, with some chrome, until I finally abandoned it. I took up the challenge again yesterday and completed this.
I used an effect on Picasa 3 called "glow", which intensifies the white, which made it seem there is no depth. But I didn't clean/swipe/cut the background out. You can still see the stand in many shots. Just thought that was cool, and if you use Picasa 3, there's a little tip.
After the electricity of the last pictures, these two might look like they have a B&W filter on them.
I wish I had gotten a top view of this speedship.
I finally have more time in my weeks to build, and I expect to have creations out more frequently now. I need a name for this ship style, any ideas? Leave an answer in a comment if you want. I have some ready-built creations waiting to be uploaded, as well as some great ideas for future ones.
Excellent. These have a really terrific retro vibe to them. Exquisite color use and photography. Shooting black LEGO on a white background is just about the hardest photography obstacle to tackle in my book.
I too rejoice in the arrival of summer vacation. The lines on these ships are quite nice, and they are more than a bit swooshable. Although I really like the color scheme of the first one, I do rather like the almost bird-like shape of the second. Nice work!
