New Century City Block II
Pate-keetongu posted a topic in LEGO TownThis is posted before Block I for this is newer and the photographies of this one is better - being only 64x96 studs I was able to rotate it in the studio. Now. This is a block of early 1900s modular houses. They are not built with LEGO's standards, they're bigger and have no interiors (nor inner walls, floors and so on). Goal was to create interesting and impressive outer forms of buildings. Grand Hotel Masaryk is inspired by Grand Hotel Europe in Prague. Due to heavy use of SNOT, the construction id rather complex, but sturdy nonetheless. Bright colours create contrast with the neighbours. Olofslott begin with idea to build a larger building on 45 degree angle. There is a large tower with a glass dome and various bays to create interesting shape. It is inspired by Olofsborg house in Katajanokka, Helsinki, and Imatra State Hotel, two masterpieces of Finnish Art Nouveau. House of the Brick Wall is inspired by National Museum of Finland. The curved wall has more modern feel on it. The curved roof was very tricky bit to build. Louhi represents Finnish Squared Rubble using natural stone national romantiscm. It is inspired by Old Poli on Lönnrotinkatu, Helsinki, and Tampere Cathedral in my hometown. I was curious wether people would like the bare plate walls or not - I think they're quite close to the look I was trying to achieve. The rope bridge gateway was there from the beginning. Lots of talk and some extra shots on the blog Cyclopic Bricks. Thanks for watching! Build on!

Pate-keetongu posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesThis one began with the dress design, and was under construction for three months or so; it was going to be a basic standing figure, but I went for something different and adjusted it for a horizontal posing on some blankets or cushions. More photos and talk on on my newly revamped blog Cyclopic Bricks.
[MOC] Arcane Samurai
Pate-keetongu posted a topic in LEGO Action FiguresThe masked warrior. Inspired by Samurai X minifig print. Wanted to make a realistic armored figure with brighter-than-usual colors. More images on Cyclopic Bricks.
[MOC] New Century Corner
Pate-keetongu posted a topic in LEGO TownThe New Century Corner, a display of five modular houses inspired by early 1900s architecture which I love. This was built for a LUG collaborative modular town in Model Expo 2016 that took place couple of weeks ago. From left to right: House of Two Whistling Geezers, House of Two Sisters, House of the Bat-Lord and Three Sinners, The House of Secret Society of Aviation, The House of Golden Frogs. The houses were built by first tablescrapping some interesting bits and the creating the rest of the building around them. That's what I usually do, anyway. The first of the houses (Two Sisters) was built in last November and the last (Bat-lord and sinners) was finished couple of week before the event. I might expand this to a whole block in the future, with four corner modulars and several houses between them. More pictures and talk on the blog.
[MOC] Dragon Dance
Pate-keetongu posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesParade of Chinese New Year celebrators with their fiery paper dragon. This was my entry on happening category in collaborative town display contest on our LUG Palikkatakomo Ry's exhibit on Model Expo 2016 last weekend. I won the category. As a (partially) Bionicle builder, I wanted to use some Bionicle pieces on my minifig-scale SYSTEM displays in this exhibit, and thus the dragon was born. More on Cyclopic Bricks.
Pate-keetongu posted a topic in LEGO TownWorkshop for several artists, hippies and so on. Built for house contest on Palikkatakomo Ry's LUG Exhibit on Model Expo 2016. Got fourth place on both audience and LUG member voting. The main idea here was the usage of boats as window frames with those new-ish half-circle. I'm also very happy with the cheese roofs.
