Welcome to Lego Effect, my blog showing (off?) Lego models I’ve created and rendered on my computer (as well as the odd extra to go with them). Some are my own design, others are official Lego sets.
As well a pictures, there might also exploded views showing how there built, discussions on the various designs, why I went one way with it and not another and anything else I can bore you with.
As with life, I’ve given myself certain rules I when building. The first is that all them models should be buildable if you have the pieces, and unless stated otherwise should be robust enough to play with. The creation of new pieces should be kept at an absolute minimum. Should any piece have printing, it should only where it is possible to be printed, so no all round head printing for instance.
All the pieces were created from scratch in Blender (with quite a bit of help from LDraw to get the sizes right). Texturing and post processing was all done with GIMP2 . My own designs were first created in LDraw, before being built in Blender.
Initially there might not be that many posts, but stick around, it may get better.
Also, the nature of this project does mean that some posts might be a bit spoilerrific, so enter at your own risk. If I spoil the twist that Carth Onasi is shaved Wookiee or that Tali’Zorah is in fact a krogan, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
