A Catablog of Tools, Tips, and Techniques for building with LEGO®


Category: Techniques

The Surfer created by Tiberium Blue and posted on Flickr.

So many awesome techniques going on here. The water appears to be based on white plates connected with joints to get the curving effect of the wave. The white is then covered with trans-blue tiles and highlighted on the break and splash with 1×2 trans clear plates.

Notice the use of the slopes for the surfers feet.

This image is from a series that pepik posted on Brickshelf. I love the simplicity yet effectiveness of the chair.

WWII: Landing in Normandy by DarthNick via Flickr.

Very cool use of 1×1 cylinders, 2×2 rader dishes, 1×1 cones, etc. to give the effect of splashes  and bullet hits.

Getting Up (remix) by Cole Blaq via Flickr.

I like the color fade technique here. Reminiscent of the Indiana Jones movie titles. Not to mention the cool organic letter creation.

The title of this one from Brickshelf is Field Kitchen by Pepik … don’t know if that’s a synonym for “outhouse”, but to me, that’s essentially what this is. I really like the use of tile for wood planks. Notice the cheese, too.
