  1. Please support my Lego ideas artists studio set :) it is quick to do so , you will need to create an account and answer 4 multiple choices quick questions in order to support it . Link removed
  2. Hey all! I made a lego version of Vincent Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' painting using lego. I am very proud of it and would love your feedback. You can also see other designs I have done on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/legologoart/
  3. As SvenF shared his awesome entires to the ReBrick Modular Contest, I thought I'd do the same! Remember, maximum is 16x16, yellow-faced minifigures only and must add to any of the existing modulars. Having said that, let's begin with.... Donatello's Art Studio: An old-style art studio, with all sorts of details and painings. Talking of which, there are three of them reminiscent of real ones: A map of Europe on the back wall, Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer and The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. Donatello is the blonde guy's nickname, honouring Donatello the Renaissance Italian painter, the other two bearded minifigs are the judges; they'll decide whether Donatello's work is worth an exhibition or it's just a mere copy of old work... . Would be located on the 1st floor of Pet Shop's brown building. Right now it is at 5th position of the most liked entries, with over 350 views! Jean's Bakery: A modern, sleek bakery, with a vintage touch! White bricks, chequered floor, palet tables are jst some of my favorite details in this one. Jean, as you can imagine, owns this bakery in the south of France, there would be a crêpe-o-maker, but there was no space availabe for that. What there was space for, though, was Jean's second favourite thing: music, and not any sort of music, but classical music. That's why he has the today unused machines there were to play it: a grampohone and a record player. Would be located on Assembly Square's blue building ground floor, instead of that rather boring café. Jean's Bakery is clocking 31 likes with only 300 views, and at 3rd position! Thanks for bearing with me and my long speech, leave comments if you liked it!
  4. My recent order of Brickwarriors gear arrived yesterday, and I decided to add some of my own touch ups with some modeling paint. I used a bit of red and gold on the hats and a silver on the muskets and pistol.
  5. All my "painted" LEGO photos go in this thread. Here is a link to the flickr page with bigger versions of the pic (If anyone wants them!): https://www.flickr.c...s/55973205@N08/ NOTE: All the effects were done in the (free) Google photos. Locomotive Breath A new locomotive joins the group of built LEGO projects. To commemorate this event, I turned a simple photo into what I think looks like a painting with both 4460 (a 4-8-4 GS-6 Daylight) and the new loco, 6847 (a streamlined 4-8-2 Mountain type). The Sound of Silence Night time at the railroad yard sometime in the late 1960's, and it is almost as quiet as a graveyard. The railroad industry is on life support and yet sill bleeding money at this point in time, with lines of badly maintained and to-be-scrapped engines growing longer every month. Even Brick Railway systems is feeling the pain, and has sidelined streamlined steam locomotive 6847 in order to have it be "eventually" replaced by diesels. (this decision would late be reversed) Elsewhere, Penn Station in New York City is being destroyed and Amtrak is being set in motion while the giant railroad Penn Central is in it's death throes. "and the words of the prophets are written on the station halls, loco walls." Up around the Bend The Emerald Express (headed by 2-6-0 'Mogul" 4613) rounds a tight curve as it heads out of the city of Saint Louis and onto the south-bound mainline track between the Gateway to the West and New Orleans sometime in 1923. The train has stopped here for just a few minutes (long enough for a picture!) as a switch was misaligned and needed to be hand thrown. "Their's a place up ahead and and I'm going, just as fast as my feet can fly!" This photograph was taken at Fort Legoredo station in 1893 and features Engine number 1 (a 4-4-0 American type) and it's crew of three. The crew are as follows: On track: Leroy McCoy - fireman On platform: Sylvester Rhodes - road foreman On cow-catcher: Alex J. - locomotive engineer The 1870's vintage steamer had just been to the company machine shop and had it's balloon stack removed and the engine converted to burn coal when this picture was taken. These modifications were later backdated in the 1920's to allow to the engine to star in Wild Western movies until being retired and donated in 1967. In 2016, the balloon stack was removed again and the engine returned to steam once more with coal as it's fuel. Break on Through (To the Other Side) Here we see engine streamlined 4-8-2 "Mountain"-type 6847 roaring through the eastern end of the Raindance Ridge Tunnel sometime in the early 1960's. This tunnel was a bottleneck for traffic for many years, but land ownership issues concerning the Native American tribe who originally owned the land on which it sits caused many issues. The land was apparently never sold to the railroads but was stolen and the law requires all railroad land not proved to be owned by said railroad goes back to the previous owner: the Native American tribe. So, after a decade of legal wrangling, the tunnel was sold to the railroad for a quite large sum of money in 1975. This allowed the second tunnel to be built for eastern traffic about a half mile downstream of the original 1880 alignment, with the original tunnel is used only for West bound trains. Take the last train to Clarksville The date is sometime in Summer of 1965, the place is Clarksville Grand Central Terminal railroad station, just after the last train has left. The usually busy station tracks are now deserted except for a lone tank engine used for getting coaches ready for their next journey and pulling passenger trains through the washer and onto the servicing tracks. At this midnight hour, the station is quiet and even the steam engine seems to have gone nearly silent, with just a wisp of smoke coming from it's stack. Soon, however, the first sun rays and early Monday morning commuter trains will be arriving and the station will hustle and bustle with the little steam loco running to and fro once more. Dream Weaver "I've just closed my eyes again, and climbed aboard the Dream Weaver train..." I was actually deciding what to call this photo when this Gary Wright song came on the radio. Coincidentally, it features a train in it's lyrics and so the choice to use it was easy. I edited the picture using the free Google photos service, and made it look like it was taken place at night. The engines featured are the General Motors Aerotrain, Southern Pacific 4-8-4 "Warbaby" Daylight, and my fictional Brick Railways Systems streamlined 4-8-2. Mind the Generation Gap Here we see my 1920's Steam locomotive (a 2-8-2 Mikado) meeting it's replacement in freight hauling, a 1950's Diesel engine (MRS-1, to be precise). The Mikado is pulling it's last train before retirement and eventual scrapping while the MRS-1 has just been delivered factory-fresh from ALCO. In reality, no one is getting replaced / scrapped,, as both engines will be still used in their respective railroad eras, which do not overlap much. (I should be building the diesel later this year!) Also, the MRS-1 was a military model, and was not sold to civilian railroads until it became surplus to the US Army's needs in the mid 1970's. Enjoy! I hope this was okay to post here....
  6. LEGO MOC - The Great Wave off Kanagawa 神奈川沖浪裏 It is my favorite Japan style mosaic recreation. I like the printing to show the people living when was in Japan Edo period. From wiki : The Great Wave off Kanagawa (神奈川沖浪裏), also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1830 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (富嶽三十六景). It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the best recognized works of Japanese art in the world. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the prefecture of Kanagawa. While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is, as the picture's title suggests, more likely to be a large rogue wave. As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background. Size : 47 x 35 cm Pieces : 2000 pcs I used blue, medium blue, black, white ,tan, dark tan, light & dark grep plates as source color to generate the printing. It is one of exhibit "Alanboar & Mythbot Exhibition" display in Macau Joy 2015. The processing... 50% complete... It is the "stud on side" technique to build up the mosaic. The wave is danger and huge! If it is real tsunami, I have no idea how to survive for the fisher...

  7. Hi! So I've decided I want to start customize Lego Minifigures and Friends mini-dolls. First off, I would like to know what are best types of paint to use on the mini-dolls and minifigures (including the rubber Friends hair). I've tried painting a Friends figures and the paint dried in a hard finish, and it inhibited movement of the legs. Also, what are the best methods for removing any printing. And finally, does anyone know how to take apart a Friends figure?? Thanks so much for any, and all tips!

    The Siege of Alesia.

    The Siege of Alesia by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr Based off of the painting "Vercingetorix Throws Down His Arms at the Feet of Julius Caesar" 1899, by Lionel Noel Royer The Siege of Alesia by Mark of Falworth, on Flickr One of my favorite wars of history was the Gallic Wars which were a series of military campaigns waged by the Roman proconsul Julius Caesar against several Gallic tribes. Rome's war against the Gallic tribes lasted from 58 BC to 50 BC and culminated in the decisive Battle of Alesia in 52 BC, in which a complete Roman victory resulted in the expansion of the Roman Republic over the whole of Gaul (mainly present day France and Belgium). The wars paved the way for Julius Caesar to become the sole ruler of the Roman Republic. Built for Major B's "Recreate History" contest. Enjoy!
  9. Here is a recent project I did with my spare time and acrylic paint, I hope you like it.

    Dyeing Basics...?

    Are there any useful guides / guidelines regarding dyeing LEGO parts? In particular Minifigure parts? Any products to avoid? Any methods better than others? Thanks!
  11. While looking over the parts list that would be required to build my Space Police I T.A.R.D.I.S., I realized that, although most of the parts exist/ed in the colors I used, there were two that do not. http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=60601 - Glass for Window 1x2x2 Flat Gront, I need 8 of them in Trans-Red. http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=43888 - Support 1 x 1 x 6 Solid Pillar, I need 3 of them in Blue. I was wondering if anyone could perhaps tell me what the best paint/dye for each of them would be, and what would be the best color to buy the parts that will be dyed in*? I want the window to stay transparent, even after having been painted/dyed. Reference Image: Thanks in advance! *I imagine that the best color for the window would probably be Trans-Clear and the Pillar White?
  12. Let me present you my Cube of Mondrian. This MOC is my entry for the L13 contest on BrickPirate named "The Great Painters". The Cube of Mondrian by Veynom, on Flickr So this is a cube, not a painting and the contest specifically asked to prepresent a painting. So where is the painting ? Start looking at the faces of the cube and take some distance. Let's begin with the front face: Mondrian's Cube: Front by Veynom, on Flickr And you will see the first painting based on the below original painting from Piet Mondrian. But wait, there is more, look at the left side: Mondrian's Cube: Left by Veynom, on Flickr This is another original painting from Mondrian. But this is still not over. Let's try a top-down view: Mondrian's Cube: Top by Veynom, on Flickr This time we have a painting inspired by Mondrian. Then similarly, we have the two remaining faces : right ... Mondrian's Cube: Right by Veynom, on Flickr ... and back. Mondrian's Cube: Back by Veynom, on Flickr Those are not just mirrored copy from the other sides, there are some differences. And last but not least, one additional shot of the inside of the cube. Inside the Cube of Mondrian by Veynom, on Flickr A lot of fun and a good mind challenge. Comments welcome.

    Base Plate Decorating

    Hi. I was wondering whether base plates can be decorated, for example, the runway base plate in the lego city airport, as in just painting the smooth part grey for concrete and the rest green for grass? Thanks :)

    MOC: Lego Starry Night

    The Starry Night (Dutch: De sterrennacht) is a painting by the Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence (located in southern France) at night, although it was painted from memory during the day. It has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, part of the Lillie P. Bliss Bequest, since 1941. The painting is among Van Gogh's most well known works. In September 1888, before his December breakdown that resulted in his hospitalisation in Arles, he painted Starry Night Over the Rhone. Van Gogh wrote about this painting "... it does me good to do what’s difficult. That doesn’t stop me having a tremendous need for, shall I say the word – for religion – so I go outside at night to paint the stars.'" In mid-September 1889, following a heavy crisis which lasted from mid-July to the last days of August, he thought to include Starry Night in the next batch of works to be sent to his brother, Theo, in Paris.In order to reduce the shipping costs, he withheld three of the studies, including Starry Night. These three went to Paris with the shipment that followed. When Theo did not immediately report its arrival, Vincent inquired again and finally received Theo's commentary on his recent work From wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Starry_Night It is my goal to make this mosaic @ my home XD I got the difficult to collect the plates, but it was ready within 6 months at last Only finish 25% in the slow processing , but I enjoy the "bricking" I try to stick it but it seems it was failed. My wife join together to complete this work, it is our happy moment~ At last , we sticked it into the wood plate. Make the own frames Wow , it is completed. The paintings of Vincent Van Gogh set to Don McLean's "Starry Starry Night". Starry, starry night. Paint your palette blue and grey, Look out on a summer's day, With eyes that know the darkness in my soul. Shadows on the hills, Sketch the trees and the daffodils, Catch the breeze and the winter chills, In colors on the snowy linen land. But I can simulate it only by lego, it is quite different between the original one. And it is joined in the Brick adventure 2012 Hong Kong Please come visit my site if you free feel :] lego.alanstudio.hk http://www.flickr.com/photos/alanboar Thank you! Alan
