- Alright, move! - shouted down the master scribes, to his apprentice, but the ladder didn't move at all. - Apprentice! Did you fell asleep again? - He reached in his pocket, to grab a pebble, and dropped it. The pebble perfectly falls and hits the sleeping boy on his forehead. With a loud snort, he woke up, and lookup. - I'm glad you are with us again Arnoult, now would you be kind, and move the ladder to the right... Right, Right! The other right! - His shout echoed in the dark corridors, as he grabbed tightly the ladder, and tried to protect the ink, from spilling out. - You imbecile! Gently! If the page will be ink-stained, I will skin you, and you will be the cover of the reissued Illustrated Encyclopedia of Crime and Punishment! Do you know how long it took to brother Bertran, to draw that Decorative capital initial? The Boy looked up. He already saw the raven-shaped K letter on the top of the page. Soon, he could draw one of them too. But first, he must survive the terrible fate of the apprentice. - It took three fu... - It took three full days, to draw it! - interrupted the old man on top of the ladder, as he holds a bunch of paper in his hand, and dipped his pen in the ink. - We are already behind schedule! The fourth book is upon us! We need to finish the third one soon as we could! What a surprise! Ran through the thought in Arnoult's head. We are always behind schedule... He looked around in the Hall of History. Books, scrolls, maps, letters. An immeasurable amount of information about Historica. Kept in the dim darkness, of these halls, so the sun couldn't damage both the paper and the content. Letters, pictures, stories, and tales came here, from all of the kingdoms, so the folks down here, can register them, and safeguard them for posterity. In front of the Third Book, a large table take its place. Wast mountains were created with paper, books, and scrolls. And only three brave souls were tasked, to explore it, and find the next topic for the following pages. - Damn it! - cursed the master from above. - The inkpot is almost empty, in the middle of the sentence... Where is an apprentice when I'm in a hurry! - A minute grandmaster! - came the answer, from a moving tower of books. - Just need to put this down... As the young apprentice arrived at the table, he gently dropped down the books. The old table creaked, and the three old scribes peeked out from their books. They look liked the mountainers, who reached a higher point of their journey, to realize: there are still more mountains ahead for them... - Psst! - came hissing from behind Arnoult. As he turned around, the young boy stood behind him. He must be lost in his mind and stared blankly, didn't noticed the other boy. - I saw you always holding the ladder, to the master. How long it took to write these big books. - It depends, how often we receive content. - Arnoult leaned on the ladder next to him, pretending he knows everything. - And why are they so huge? - That's easy. The master is blind as a mole. - he smirked. - And he didn't want to wear glass... Ouch! Again, pain struck his head. He again looked up, just to get hit by another one on his forehead. - Unlucky for you Arnoult, my ears sharp as a fox's. Don't hold up apprentice Dan fulfilling his task! - the master put the remaining stones into his pocket, and look to the other boy: - Don't just stand there! Move, or we will never finish the Third Book! and without Book III. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When I first read about this challenge, I asked myself: What to came up with. Started wondering about huge beasts, great ancient places, mystical locations. In that thinking, I came up with another realization: Everybody will build their entry around what he likes. Those, who like magic and mysticism will create places with ancient great powers. Those, who like buildings will create ruins and palaces of old times. And me? Well, I like the lore, the history, to tell a tale not only with words but with pictures, little everyday happenings captured in a scene. That is why I choose, to create the Halls of History. To show you not only bildings and landscapes could be ancient, but history and lore too. And also a little humor and 4th wall-breaking. :) Hope you like it! C&C are welcome.
Hello, Eurobricks! Longtime lurker, first-time poster, etc. I'm diving into the forums for one reason, and one reason only: To track down and exhaustively understand the LEGO Space shared universe. In particular, the "Golden Age" from 1987-1999, when LEGO went launched multiple factions and concurrent themes. The Space Timeline thread has been tremendously informative, and I expect to spend more time following that discussion. In addition, some day my dream is develop a short animated series set within the LEGO Space universe, spanning every single one of the classic pre-2000 space themes (including some Aquazone and Seatron, of course). I look forward to getting more involved now! Oh and while we're on the topic, here's a small MOC from my Flickr:
Hey guys, The last day or too, I have gotten this idea for a Medieval themed story. The Medieval Election is based on a sacred ruling of the Kingdoms rulers to allow one a certain ruler to have a chance to be elected. These elections happened very rarely, if elected he will obtain his benefits that were mentioned when he was going for election. However rivalery and corruption follow close by.. Bandits form, rivals change, friends turn to enemies. I'd likely to quickly mention that half of this video suffered some light flicker, now I can say with certainty it wasn't from myself causing the light flicker rather it was a setting that was already formed in my program called (back light compensation) I have no idea why it was checked but it was the serious cause of light flicker.. as you will notice after about half way everything is back to normal. I do apologize for that and will look into making sure its turned off everytime in future! This was a really fun vid to work on, first time doing a sword sequence, a different walk cycle, and some small masking, with of course dialog, and improved set scenery. Now I was inclined in thinking this may be better in the released section or production, I was debating over it for some time. I didn't think releases just yet, as it's not a finished film but perhaps a part. Then I said to myself this may be better as a WIP. As its still going and as I mentioned I am learning new things, most notably was the sword sequence/slashing and stabbing. Also I have made two videos (Both exactly the same) Only one with no blood effect and one with it. I understand some users don't like it, or just think it goes well in lego films which is why I made the first link blood free! I'd love to get any feedback on what I can improve what I could work on, if the walk cycle is better than my original, and just what you guys thought of the whole in general. I've made the original (without blood effect) Public with annotation for the same vid with the effect if people wish to watch it that way, in a unlisted link. Is this a good idea in your opinions? I also waited until I had both links uploaded for it to be easier and more accessible. (No blood effect) (With Blood effect)Thanks guys, Divine.
