LEGO Mosaic Danny Mathew

February 9th, 2008

I wanted to build a cartoon character LEGO Mosaic. I usually try to pick subjects that I haven’t seen done before in brick, or at least not done in a similar scale or style to what I have in mind. In this case, I offered for my step-son Mathew to pick the character and also offered to picture him with it.

Mathew really likes Danny Phantom from Nickelodeon and selected him as his first choice. After a quick scan of the web it was clear that no one had posted any brick mosaics of Danny Phantom before, so I was happy with his choice also.

Here is the finished product, which is 30 x 37.5 inches (2 x 2.5 X-Large Gray Baseplates).

The first task in building this mosaic, was finding good source images to use for both Danny and Mathew. The image of Danny that I settled on was one from the back of a Pop-Tarts box. For Mathew, I took several digital pictures of him facing directly forward and picked out one. Both of my original source images are shown below. READ FULL ARTICLE »

Small LEGO Chess Knight Plans

February 7th, 2008

As promised, here are plans for building the first piece of the Small LEGO Chess Set I posted about last week. I started with the Knight because it is my favorite. I especially like how the small hollow opening with a stud visible forms the eye of the horse.

Space Minifig LEGO Sculpture

February 4th, 2008

Last week I wrote about my Luke Skywalker LEGO Sculpture, here is a second installment of what will certainly become a regular topic, another 10X Scale LEGO Minifig sculpture. This time I’ve built a sculpture of a classic space minifig designed to match those from around 1980 when I first got Hooked on LEGO bricks.

This sculpture shares the same head and body design as Luke Skywalker. However, I did have to build a helmet and air tanks, as well as make some brick color changes to the torso and face to match the small figure. I’ve also included a lot of pictures to highlight the modular design of the sculpture. It’s worth noting that the helmet, head, airtanks, arms and hands are easily removable. (I didn’t press the helmet, head or torso to each other.) READ FULL ARTICLE »
