[MOC] [WIP] Zombillenium - Amusement Park

Recommended Posts

Here is a project that I have been maturing for 4 years and which finally takes shape from this year, inspired by a french comic strip from Arthur De Pins..
Throughout this topic, you can follow the progress of the project and the WIP. This first post will bring together only the completed games and winks to the universe.

Summary : At Zombillenium Amusement Park, you only hire for an indefinite period. The selection criteria are not too hard, we just refuse simple mortals. Francis von Bloodt, a vampire by trade, manages this small business that is not experiencing the crisis ...

1. Gretchen and his Mini Cooper S :

2. Carousel with skulls :

Great inspiration from those found in the comic strip park, but which I found a bit repetitive, especially this one.

This looks fantastic, and quite the undertaking. I love that entrance building. The iron fence, the masonry brick walls turned on their side, and the dark tan tiles on the edge. Great color combination.

This would look amazing in any town!

Great Great Work!

Glad to read you comments :)

Indeed, the color scheme is voluntarily saturated by the author of the comic, so I took the same principle.

The entrance building is not exactly the same as the presentation image, because I have little information on it.

What you also need to know is that he officially supports the project on Instagram, it's super motivating to move forward. He also gave me many sketches to advance on some of the buildings of the amusement park.

Here are some example in WIP too.

I have to make more recent photos, they are a bit old. I promise, it will happen quickly :)
 
 

I forgot: inside the candy shop

I've never heard of this, but this is incredible.

Well done! I wish I had something I was that passionate about to live out in LEGO form. It makes the build more satisfactory when you can visualize the things you love.

That’s awesome that the artist is even helping you realize this. That has to be really satisfying & fuels you even more.

I'm so happy your carousal has a brick built roof something LEGO seems to forget to do.

Complete overhaul of the road and the sidewalk, integration of the flower pot invented by my 5 yo daughter. The central channel has been completely redesigned. The rounding of the roof is now complete. The following parts order will complete them.

Saturday was a great day for me : the author, Arthur de pins, authorized me to publish the sketches which were used for the film and the comic strip. So I can now show you a comparative view of the drawn version and its in LEGO parts :

I used dark purple parts for the building to the right, instead of magenta parts, because LEGO inventory is limited to make some hard forms, and I have got a lot of parts in dark purple too :blush:

About 1,75m x 1m
You can clic on picture to see more details

To the bottom right, you can see the rear side to the entrance building. A part of the roof is missing for the moment.

This looks incredible! I'm not familiar with the source material, but you've done an incredible job translating the source material into model form. Awesome stuff!

Ooooh thank you Kintobor, glad to read you like it !

And now, first part of Main Street almost done :

Definitely, this dark purple building, the more I see it, the more I love it.
I found a dark turquoise dish 3 x 3 coming soon, that will finish the gray building too

As a bonus, a quick little creation made on Sunday, a vignette inspired by one of the last Instagram posts that Arthur de Pins published and which presents a very small part of a vignette from one of the cases in volume 5 :

Francis Von Bloodt - "Problem fixed !" by Stephle59, on Flickr

To get out of the Main Street build and present my vision of the vignette, a little less gore than the original, but most of the elements are there. The lighting and the light / dark side are voluntary, it gives a little idea of the atmosphere.
Francis always has class !

Volume 5 will be titled "Black Friday".

I love where this is going. I don't know the comic books, but I like the originality of it. It must be very nice to find out the real author likes the idea and supports you with sketches now and than. Looking forward to see more. 

Keep on building
