    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Huh, I think you're right. Maybe they play Romeo and Juliet with that balcony? ?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Does anyone know what this contraption is that slides out from the basement?
  3. I'm working on making replicas all four of the original Ninjago torsos. Lord Tyrus asked me to create these, and I thought others might be interested as well. So far, I have the white and the red: Edit: And now also the blue one:

    Decal Wish List

    Oops, he's right! And I wouldn't be able to top these :) Here are links to what KingPixels is talking about: http://www.flickr.com/photos/34166136@N04/9489870472/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/34166136@N04/12142653626/in/photostream/

    I can do that! Give me a few days though :)
  6. I wanted to try creating a modular in LDD (don't really have the pieces to make it any other way, but that will hopefully change soon). I thought a bakery would be fun to try. I couldn't figure out a way to populate the shelving with bread/pies/pretzels/croissants in LDD, just imagine that it's there :) From the front: From the back: Top view: With the storefront hidden to see more detail: Closer in on the oven in back: And lastly, a detail shot of how the bakery shelving works: I might still add some sidewalk, and maybe a bench or a light out front. We'll see :)

    MOC Modular Bakery (First Floor) (WIP)

    I really liked some of the suggestions that were made here, and incorporated them into a second draft, as it were, of the bakery. I also designed a second floor, see the photos after the revamped bakery photos below. Here are some photos of the ground floor: Front: Back: Top: Work table and oven: Checkout counter: Front bench: Garbage out back: And next, the photos of the second floor. The stairs go up to a small landing with two doors, one to a studio apartment, and the other to a pantry/storage for the bakery. Here's the front: An angle shot (the sign would be for the bakery): Top view: The part of the bakery's pantry that includes the fridge. I tried designing several fridges on my own, and while they were fine, I just really loved the fridge design used by nolnet, which is what you see here: Pantry shelving: The kitchen of the studio apartment. You can also see the dresser, and a little bit into the bathroom: The apartment's desk and comfier chair, as well as fridge: The bed and bookshelf area. Please forgive the red tile in the bottom right corner, I took this shot before I finished painting everything in LDD: And the toilet:

    WALL-E micro characters.

    Love it! WALL-E is great, and M-O is just perfect! Any chance you'll post up instructions for WALL-E?

    MOC Modular Bakery (First Floor) (WIP)

    Sorry, I'm pretty new to EB, and therefore to the intricacies of naming topics! :) Is there a way I can change it to WIP in the title? Thanks! If you look at the second to last picture, you can see the oven. I Googled bakery ovens and found something similar. It has multiple racks so you can bake lots of loaves simultaneously.

    [WIP] Ninjago Torso Decals

    Well, full disclosure, I'm using Photoshop. I use two different methods: 1) If I want a more thinly tapered look, like with the wrinkles at the bottom, I use the Pen tool to draw a curve twice as long as the line I want, then right-click and select 'Stroke Path', and make sure 'Simulate Pressure' is checked in the pop-up box. This draws a tapered line using the size and color of your Brush tool. 2) If I want a thicker taper, like the lines in the collar area, I'll do the same as method 1, except I don't check the 'Simulate Pressure' box. This gives me a straight, clean line, and I come back in with the Eraser tool and just erase bit by bit by hand until I get the look I want. You could do method 2 easily in Paint by just drawing a line and then coming back and erasing along its length. A steady hand or a pen tablet are a big help, though :)
  12. I looked through quite a bit of the Minifig Customisation Workshop, and I didn't see this anywhere, so I made my own. I drew it by hand in Photoshop, based on the official LEGO version. If it's already been done, I apologize; I'm new to Eurobricks and this is my first attempt at a decal!
  13. Do you have any in particular in mind?

    Ladies, stand up !

    Hmm... when I registered, I didn't see any gender options... I just changed it in my settings. :)

    Ladies, stand up !

    Didn't see this before now, although I have only been a member a few days so I feel like I've got a good excuse :) I am a lady! You'll probably mostly find me sunk to the waist in any building technique threads, as well as filling requests in the Decal Wishlist.

    I'll see what I can do :)
  18. Thank you! This tutorial saved me. I just joined the forum yesterday, and I had made a Tactical Vest decal for another member which I wanted to post in the Decal Wishlist, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out what to do. It took me a moment to figure out what the next logical steps beyond this tutorial were. In case this is helpful to anyone else who's new here, I did the following: 1) Once my photo was uploaded to Brickshelf, I clicked on the thumbnail to embiggen it. 2) I right-clicked on the large photo and opened it in a new tab 3) Copied the URL from the address bar 4) Selected the 'Image' icon from the editor in the new post I was creating on Eurobricks Forum. 5) Pasted the URL.

    Eurobricks: A Visual User Guide

    Thank you! I just signed up yesterday and I was foundering trying to figure out how to do some of the basic things. This was very helpful.

    Decal Wish List

    Okay, I've made the tactical vest, but I can't figure out how to get it to you. I can't attach it here, I can't upload content to my profile (it just keeps cycling back to telling me to choose a category), and I can't upload it to a new thread (72KB is too big, I guess). Any suggestions? It looks pretty cool if I say so myself. EDIT: Nevermind, I found the tutorial on starting a Brickshelf account. Here you go!
