I Need Color Help!
Posted 17 June 2011 - 07:11 PM
The shape is done, but the color is just awful. I tried to make a good light grey building color, but it just screams blahhhh
I need the base color to still be light grey, since that's the only color building I don't have prominently in the city, but any style or mix of colors for the rest can do. ANYTHING is better than what I made. As long as its "realistic looking"
Here's the LXF
WARNING: its 11,000 pieces (it is my build after all )
Please help! Any ideas are super appreciated!!!!!!!

I also tried a sort of checker board effect maintaining the outside 1x6 gray brick grey and reversing the rest as described above. This gives it a more dark feel while maintaining the light tone and increasing the visual interest. Anyway some ideas there.

I'm still stuck and I wish I could make a poll
numbered 1-11, which one looks the best?
Sorry in advance for the picture sizes. Its really hard to get a good idea of what the colors look like with any smaller size.
(by the way, no, I did not have all those running in one LDD. Who do you think I am? )

I like #10 the best.

Indeed, #7 is my second choice.

Which stripe, The vertical or horizontal one?

sorry!!!! I finally figured out what the problem was...and so none of these color choices are good
All the colors were too strong and drew away from the shape of the building itself. I completely forgot about legacy grey, so I'm doing a grey/bley striped pattern.
It doesn't look great in picture, but it does in the program so...LXF
Should I put back the green highlights?

Your building is group of individual shapes (tubes and rectangular blocks) that emphasize the VERTICAL nature of the skyscraper. I would not add a horizontal stripe; that would be more suitable for a low, wide building.
I like the sloped building element over the front entrance carport (on the side not visible in your screenprint above). I like the curved windows on (what seems to be) the two exterior elevator shafts.
If you ever build this 11,900-brick creation with real Lego bricks, it will be most impressive to see!

I never really liked the green; I say leave it off.
