This isn’t Lego, but it is a very creative event and my addition to it was classically gaming themed. Thought some of you might be interested in the other stuff that occupies my time, I have started participating in local art festivals over the past couple of years in an attempt to become a ‘local artist’ not just an artist who lives in the city.
This gobbled up my past week and now that I have tied it up with this post I can tackle all those other hobbies!
I do a lot of browsing, it’s a tax write off for creative research for my comics. Ya that’s it. Anyways, I need x-amount of monitor radiation and find lots of great random Lego pics that I often share on our local lug’s forum, thought I’d share them here too. This is the ‘art’ edition.
Bizarro, one of my fav comic series
xkcd, another fav comic series 🙂
Inspired by Walking Dead, not sure the artist
Link and self portrait by westalbott
he has a cuusoo page for his Zelda project
Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter
Here’s some more of the drawings I did for the development of the Outpost level.
This was some ideas about the desert mesas and Maelstrom infected buildings that were on the edge of the rift.
The vision for the town was kind of a shanty town/pioneer land that was made out of available resources on the planet.
This was originally a design idea for the Sector Six t-shirt and still thinking about doing something with pieces of it eventually.
Yep, the blog had a dry spell, much like the summer drought we experience on our farflung island at sea here. Thanks to everyone who posted and commented this past little bit 🙂
I’ve had a pretty busy summer and feel like I’m just starting my summer vacation now…. It was mostly consumed with art related events, sprinkled with family nonsense.
My Lego activities have been attending a Cherrybomb Lego Kids Club, getting some Series 8 figs, a GB Olympic archer, the Lagoon Monster, a wonderful presi from White and tidying my Lego room and making plans to give some extra square footage. I was representin LU at the Moss Street Paint-In all Assembly style even:
There’s lots of bricky action on the horizon and still there’s quite a bit of LU stuff to mine through as well. I always felt that the start of the school year is more of a new year than Jan. 1st and looking forward to getting busy again!
Steve sent me some links the other day and there was this epic looking minifig Marvel mashup in the mix, and I had to find out more so thumped up some links. The artist is Ulises Alfonso Farinas and he’s just great, check out his other stuff too. Images link to larger versions and his site is at the bottom of this post.
On a previous post I linked to some concept art made by a minifig series designer:
Here is another one of his sites and some more interesting tidbits:
Looks like these are the Monster Hunter pitches!
I am MiniTheFig, and I played in the Overbuild server. LEGO Universe was the best game I’ve played, and I’ve made many amazing friends. My greatest friends were HappyPappy, SamuraiMaster, White, and Zipblock. (In alphabetical order)
I hope you enjoy this, and it’s been an honor.
I actually signed up to Cuusoo to support this one. It’s by the Reverend Brendan Powell Smith who is infamous for his Brick Testament project: http://www.thebricktestament.com/
His work is consistently amazing and entertaining as well as he’s proven to be a viable success with his many books, a couple of which are on my shelf.
It’s a tricky sell since there are religious undertones to his work but I think he picked a great piece for a project since it’s a classic masterpiece. I could see a whole line of painting recreations, similar to the architecture series.
This wasn’t made for the game, I made this for fun in October to wear as a tshirt to BrickCon. The Inventor is my favourite faction gear 🙂 I still need to find out what the unreleased valiants were supposed to do, it was boss to see them in the game for sure but very curious as to what it’s stats were.
It even sort of relates to the blog title…? Happy big VD day to all the lovely Lufugees out there 😀
