I'm thinking about doing the full movie Stripes in lego, if I do and you guys like my modeling can you help with lots of modeling? and animations?

Nothing really to crit right now. It looks like a lego block, so I spose you succeeded.

Starwars been done to death, and there is a lot of other parity of other movies all ready. So I thought I would do stripes.

Specially when most of the ghost buster cast was in it. And it was a darn good movie.

I guess I'm out of the loop. Stripes? Never heard of it. I think for something like that the modeling would be most tedious, not necessary difficult if you're good with legos. Once it's modeled I can see the rig/animation being like any mechanical rig.

Once it's modeled I can see the rig/animation being like any mechanical rig.Go tot he internet database movie website. They will have a lot of info on Stripes. The cast had John candy, Johny larikat, Bill Murry, Judge Renolds, And I can't remeber one of the other cast members.



the modeling will not be that hard, I got lot's of time on my hand until the spring semester start's. But the rigging and aniamtion might be tough, that's where I wouldn't mind help in.

And I got to finish up my other character I'm modeling then I'll be done with him.


Anyways here's the update.

Modeling the door.

if your doing a lego project, you might want to check out LeoCAD, http://www.leocad.org/ it's a free lego modeling software that exports to .obj and .3ds. it has a huge library of already modeled parts.

i found that maya complained a bit with importing some of the more complicated obj models, but XSI managed to import them fine.

I'd say the gaps between the stone are too "visible". I think the edges of (new) LEGO-Blocks are sharper and therefore the gaps should be smaller...imo

Ok, On a 1973 gmc RV the shape is like an egg, and I want to know how to do that shape with lego's when I am building?
