Lego Minifigs

Recommended Posts

Hi friends

I have always wanted to model a Lego minifig, so I did this small project while taking a break from other projects. All the textures is done in A:M :)

Wow Stian! What would it take for me to adopt you as my older brother? :)

 

Great work! Couldn't look better!

Wow! Looks awesome. Given the "simple" structure I guess they are easier to animate than ordinary models. Now it would only need some "noise" in the keys to suggest stop-motion :)

Stian:

 

Your render and lighting is very nice. AO, right? How many passes and how long to render? Did you use an actual environment? Would you share a wire of your chor? I'd love to see the whole setup.

Thank you for the comments!

Thanks! Just AO. Used a white luminaire to add the reflections, no other environment. I used 25 passes, AO sampling set to only 20%. The rendertime was a bit huge, about 7 hours per frame I think. You can see a wireframe of the setup in the youtube link in the first post :) I did some minor post on the render though, added DOF and minor color adjusting

When I showed this to my fiancee, she didn't realize it was CG. I loved Lego growing up, still do, and now I love A:M Lego!

 

Nicely done, Stian!

 

.....7 hours per frame....wow.......

7 hours? Did you render that on a Commodore 64? :lol:

 

The Luminare is what I was curious about. How big was it and where did you place it?

WHAT? Do you think I am stupid? I use my Amiga 500 for rendering!

It really depends on the project, and what looks good. I often have to drag it around in the Chor too see what gives the best reflections. Sometimes it is behind the camera, sometimes I use several of them. In this case it is very big and directly above the ground

Very cool :D

 

I'm glad to see that you're still using those EXR hyper white luminares. Did they ever implement Ambiance values greater than 100% into the surface properties? I think you could cut the render times down a bit by rendering fewer passes, or did you use that many to get rid of the aliased reflections?
