Happy Eid al-Adha 2017!

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.

Glorious Indonesia!

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…

Celebrating World Emoji Day with LEGO

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?

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.
