Yes, the LEGO version of BB-8 can’t rollin’ because of the stud (except if you use this crazy technique)! This is an old idea from me and I have created the similar post one year ago, but since the quality of the image is low, I had to recreate it into a high-quality and photorealistic render since it was a great meme idea.
And to get the job done, I try to edit and composite the raw image to a more realistic one. The result is worth it even though it’s just a render of a two parts figure.
There’s another celebration again! Today is Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice). It is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ishmael, as an act of obedience to Allah’s (God’s) command. Before he sacrificed his son, God intervened by sending his angel Jibrīl who then put a ram in his son’s place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed (know more in Wikipedia).
As a Muslim, I celebrate it too in real life and in LEGO. The model I’m gonna show to celebrate this occasion is a Minecraft scene with a pen, some animals, a house, and completed with Minecraft style background.
I’m not a Minecraft gamer. The model is done by searching for a reference on the internet, so I’m sorry if I made some inaccuracies in the render. Anyway, it always fun to create a model in a selected theme that you haven’t make or know about it.
When you’re on a military job in the middle of nowhere, you need a huge and durable vehicle. And that’s what I made for now. A huge and durable transportation, it also packed with many unique features that specially made for that environment. The model I built is a Half-Track Truck since tank tracks really help to drive over rough terrain and I mixed it with truck which has a large capacity.
See more of this badass truck!
These months are full of celebration, that’s why you may see so many post about celebration here. Today, we are also celebrating the Indonesia’s 72nd independence day as I’m Indonesian. In this render, I tried to replicate the Jayawijaya mountain and put a small Indonesian flag in the top of it. Jaya in Indonesia means glorious and the mountain means that we have achieved the victory by all of our hard work until the highest peak. Even if it’s just a single picture, it brought many message to all of us…
It has been a year since the first launch of DigiBrickz. It was the night of 30 July in UTC+7, Jakarta. No surprise for now. We just want to say thank you to all the visitors.
Many things change… You know, the first time we started this site, it was just for personal use only. But now we are featuring many other builder creations. We also redesigned the logo (you can see the blog post about it). And to get you updated through social media, we created some of it. Though we have changed over the time, I know there are still so many things that we need to improve. So, thank you all who still reading our blog posts from the last year until now…
Today is July 17, and that is the date for World Emoji Day. We use Emojis almost everyday, so why not celebrate them. You can celebrate it in so many ways, you can use #WorldEmojiDay on social media, or you can show how much you love emoji, even you can use an emoji costume and post it online. But I would go in my own style, by using LEGO!
This emoji artwork is rendered using Blender freestyle and I used an orthographic camera to get the best perspective of it. The emojis are just randomly putted, but I focused for the happy emoji to be in the middle of all the Emojis, you want to always be happy right?
Who knows, maybe in the bright future, flying-vehicles are an international-standard. And so for military vehicles like this hover tank by KANICHUGA. Good bye to the boxy shape, the tank is now aerodynamic-friendly. All of the equipment are also has been adapted for that era, and maybe you don’t even need a minifig for driving inside of that thing. Even though it’s just a LEGO model, but those smooth work are awesome!
Who don’t know the smallest car ever produced – Peel P50? I think everyone knows this car since it appearance on Top Gear and many LEGO builder already made a LEGO version of it. But for me, this LEGO Peel P50 by Leonid Malkov is different – the shaping, details, and the proportion are perfect and still keep the cuteness of it.
Fun thing, the builder also created a unique cyberpunk style of it. It is very cool to see one bodywork for two chassis. I could say that this version is much cooler than the original one!
Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, it’s a special month where every muslims are fasting (know more in Wikipedia). It already started about 2 weeks ago so maybe it’s a little late to celebrate it but it’s not a problem right? As a celebration, I created an interior scene, it was inspired by this Asrul Nasirudin‘s render. It’s not a minifig-scale model, but I still use some parts that is for minifig. My goal is to create the scene as close as a real life room, don’t let the scene feels empty, and bring the feeling in the final render. So this is what I came up:
It was rendered using Blender. If you’re using it or have seen a render from that software, you may know that there are so many noises and fireflies in an interior scene. And to deal with it, I used Filter Glossy and a new function – Denoising! So the scene is clear enough to look as a real room.
A massive robot dinosaur from a role-playing game, Horizon: Zero Dawn – Thunderjaw has been recreated in LEGO by Nicola Stocchi. As in the game, it’s a massive model too. The detail and the rendering style looks very similar to the wallpaper design, because of that some of you might think it wasn’t LEGO from first sight, but it’s completely made out of LEGO. Don’t forget about the function – the model is completely posable even there’s disc launchers which can actually shoot. As a posable model, it should have a lot of Technic and Constraction element which can make the model messy right? But it’s not! The model brings a great composition of Technic, Constraction, and System element. This model is as beast as the game model!
