Topic: 3D Animated Test Shots

Hello all,

As this is my first post I just wanted to make a quick note, I AM A HUGE LEGO FAN!!!

However due to the little space in my house for an stop motion studio, I decided to go digital!

The image below is made entirely in Blender, the shot was taken with rough 6+- hours into it. ( about 15 minutes to render per frame, though I am not done optimizing, also the background is just a flat image, not actually 3D)

I would love to see what you think, and most of all some story ideas! they need to be fairly simple as rendering can take a very long time!

Thanks!

Neat! Did you model the Benny minifig?

Yep! The model was converted from LEGO studio 2.0, then I built a new mesh based on that (the studio mesh was not well designed for rendering) then finally created the materials and textures and threw the whole thing together.

Re: 3D Animated Test Shots

That's really nice! IMO the wrists of the minifig are a little bit long. Great lighting! It looks like you've got one strong computer! mini/bigsmile
