After seeing Aaron’s Lego model thought to share some personal projects renderings. My son loves building robots with Lego Duplo bricks. At some point, I’ve started recreating them in SketchUp (under my son’s art direction.) They were not complicated but he designed them when he was 3 years old. Well, all parents super excited about what their kids do and I’m no exception. Anyway, I had fun and learned a lot while building them.
very first one:
some experiments with different rendering software like KeyShot and Adobe DImension
What I like about SketchUp is its vector graphics looking rendering.
So here are some renderings done with SketchUp and composed in Photoshop:
finally my favourite one:
I’ve modelled two sets of bricks for these builds. One set is sharp-edged and the other with bevelled edges. I use a sharp set to build robots and then paint them into a certain color scheme. Once happy with the result I replace each sharp-edged brick to its bevelled equivalent with the help of components pannel. What is great is that you don’t have to recolor your model after this process.
