What a peaceful day of Ramadhan…

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.

Crazy High-Speed Chasing

High-Speed Chasing is a tough job for police officers. Also for this render made by NGCHunter2, it’s a tough work to create this realistically scene and all the detail in a Tiny Turbo scale. The scene packed up with vehicles that you normally see on a real High-Speed Chase, they are a car, some Police cars and a Helicopter also the virtually created scene.

Blender 2.78 - Tiny Turbos Vignette

The whole scene aren’t made all of LEGO, the only thing that made of LEGO is all the vehicles, the other were created in the Blender itself as the rendering software. Though not all of them made up of LEGO, but still has to be proud of, designing in Blender is not very easy.

What could I have broken this brick?

Someone call an Ambulance, there’s a broken brick! Steven Reid has made a Crime Scene using Big Bricks and the scene is little disturbing, why the yellow bricks aren’t helping?! They’re just watching and leave it there bleed out!..

Back then on Mecabricks, I asked him for add faces to the bricks, so he add a faces using round flat tiles for eyes and an eyebrow to the bricks, but the faces make the scene very creepy.

About the render, this model was rendered using Blender via Mecabricks. It looks like he doesn’t make a huge improvement to the ‘Template’, just add an HDRi image and setup the model scene.

Can’t Rollin’

Rolling is what BB-8 doing in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, but the LEGO one which is created by LEGO company itself can’t rolling as it has a stud connector, that’s how I got the idea and created a meme of it.

It’s a Photoshopped image, the background was created in LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) and rendered using Bluerender. But for the BB-8 droid, I used a photo which I found it on the internet.
