A lego car I modelled in blender and rendered in lightflow.

I first builded a large lego library with all the pieces I would need, the I started building the model. Took about two weeks in total (about 1.5 hours work per day).

I'm still thinking about a good background, but I can't come up with anything.

Comments are more then welcome

looks like LeoCad would be the right tool for you...

http://leocad.org/

as for your model: why not make the material a bit more reflective and hang some lightboxes around your model, to get some nice shiny reflexes... would make the plastic material seem more realistic. right now the plastic looks kind of dull....

nice modell indeed. did you come up with it yourself or did you use one of those good old instructions on how to build them.. :D



and why not try to build a nice little lego garage/ auto shop to put it in front of.. maybe with some nice fake plastic trees...

great looking lego car, nice construction and style. Well done. However I feel your plastic doesn't look plastic enough perhaps its the simplicity of the GI lighting. ( :) Thats the first time I've had to say to anyone "Make your material look more like plastic" :thumbsup: )

Thanks for the suggestion. I still need to work more an the lighting indeed. Right now I only used a lightdome to show off the model.

very cool :thumbsup:, BTW i have that car... it was my first lego car that i made...
one crit i have is that the texures for the car seem a bit of (spectulaity -- that kind of junk), but im sure its only because the lighting needs some work.

Keep posting!

I never had any problems with coming up with great lego designs, but Lego company never offered me any work...

But as of the image, I like it. The gaps between lego blocks make it look very good. I personally like the textures. Cannot see what why the other people keep complaining about em...

Truly good work, as I know this took you some time...the minor details like the axle of the wheels with the clip on edges brings back memories
