its Awesome! and yes ive already supported it! but just a quick question, where did you get the blade parts of Iron Knuckles axe? ive never seen them before and would look really cool on other figures too! thanks!
hahahahaha those rupees are awesome! Simple and yet perfect!
- HEY LISTEN! I was wondering.... you painted Link's Clothing and the Hylian Shield, right? Well, have you ever considered making stickers like the ones that sometimes you get to place in things like shields or some other type of blocks? Don't know if, for the clothing is a good Idea, but I believe it would work out quite well with the shield...
yeh I've been wanting to try it but just haven't worked up the courage to go out and buy the materials and figure out how to print the things to scale and all that. maybe eventually. I'd like to make my own custom decals for bricks too. like cracked textures and engraved motifs and what not.
I happen to have a plotter machine, that prints and cut (in any shape) the design you make into those sort of decal papers. If you happen to design the stuff (in the correct proportion and sizes), I'd most happly print you and mail you some (as long as you let me print some for myself )
well, not particularly. My dad owns a company that prints and make logos, keychains, emblems, bottons and stuff, so I have access to their machines. I once made a metal mario, just the outlines and pitch black color for the shades, and printed it on a metallic paper and cut to give to a friend of mine at his birthday, other than that, never used. But it is very user friendly. And precise. some of the smallest emblems my dad prints are about 15mm wide, and the cutting isn't even remotely off.
Great, it will be an AWESOME pleasure to work with you!
Also, I think it would be better if you were to contact me by my e-mail, I check it way more often than my DA account. it is firstname.lastname@example.org Mail me whenever you get the design done in the propper measures
OMG, are these real!? My kids would totally have more Legos if they were!! And though both my brothers are grown men with man beards (haha.. gotta love my nerdy brothers) I know they would love these too!
He he, I see you found the rupees in pots combination, it's ingenious, only thing is that they may get a little stuck sometimes, probably due to the microscopic variables in the bricks edges.
Anyway, love the updated set design, and the functions just work so well! I must be honest though, I do believe The Iron Knuckle could have some adjustments. Although it is LEGO friendly, it does stand a little short proportion wise, makes it look a little to wide, but I know how hard it is to make solid designs yet keeping the visual representation true to the origins.. especially when you can't focus as much of your time as you'd wish into it. Can't say I would know where to start on an Iron Knuckle design myself.. other than the Helmet and ax
Just hope your project manages to get promoted enough and receive the attention it deserves now as it passes over 1000. And of course that the image problem is resolved soon enough!
Thanks man! I was actually delighted that the "rupees" get stuck in the pots. if you turn it upside down they don't come out. if you smack it on the table they still don't usually come out. but if you drop it with a little but of force on the table they pop out perfectly. just like Link tossing them into a wall!
and yeh the Iron Knuckle was a HUGE challenge this is probably the 6th or 7th version I came up with. I actually was going for a bit more compact because I didn't want him to fill up the entire dungeon. But anyway I think I'm done revising this project as far as the build itself (still working on some pretty concept art stuff) we should team up on a new set sometime. we could pick a scene or location and then both of us design a set and then compare and combine the good aspects. then in the final stages share an LDD file. Just a fun thought.
Man, that is brilliant! It would serve a perfect play feature, maybe some set design where the pots can stand on a shelf or other elevated area, and have some mechanic allowing them to get knocked down (or thrown off to apply some extra force) with a higher probability to get knocked out. Would also prove very interesting if featured in a function video, where we see the Rupee brick being put into the pot, then it is flipped and nothing happens. Then it is as you said, smacked onto the table, nothing happens. Finally the drop is demonstrated and it is cast out! It really has potential!
If I get some ideas that could prove helpful for the Iron Knuckle design I'll let you know But LEGO will probably downgrade the design anyway should it be taken into the review stage, so it would need a very clever and practical design to stay trough the redesign process.
Ah, concept art, really helps selling the idea in terms of capturing the atmosphere and give more life to an idea. Whenever I see LEGO's official art for their own themes, such as the new Legends of Chima line.. it just adds so much more depth to it. Also the reason why I love your LEGO based paintings, you'r style has so much life... in contrast to mine which I feel revolves around death and darkness.. he he. Must admit that I have fallen behind on the painting part myself, it's more than a year since I worked on a proper piece of art, and studying Animation isn't going to allow very much time to improve either But it will come in time
We should definitely team up, I'd love to start right away! Aside from a Twilight Princess Link, I already got prototypes of a Skyward Sword and a Wind Waker(most challenging)Link in the works, just need to work out the decals so I can print them onto transparent sticker paper and apply... and unique headpieces of course.
So far I've had SS, ALTTP, OOT and WW sets in mind.
Aye,likewise, but luckily I occasionally manage to get some time in the weekends.
And from time to time we could always discuss which scenes from the different games would best translate into sets and why... as well do some brainstorming and throw around ideas!
I also think we could expand beyond just LEGO Zelda, we could do other LEGO projects, and other art based projects as well.. Whenever we get the time of course(and hardware in my case, got a Cintiq 24HD.. but only a dying laptop )
Oh but I HAVE! My girlfriend even made some art to support it. Nothing too special. We only got you a few votes from that. But it was still more than you would have! I really appreciate you making this.
Btw. Though I doubt you have time, here's the artwork. [link]
