6803 Space Patrol
Ran across this 1983 Class Space set while pursuing Peeron. It is a pretty simple model so it was nice quick project to build and render. Unfortunately, I didn't have part 4360 (Black Minifig Accessory Camera with Side Sight) already…

Electronica and an X-Wing
I've been playing around the last few weeks with ACID Studio and finally got around to uploading some new songs. First up is a short song called Headlong. Although the genre is Electronica it is probably more Rock given the guitars and drums…

Halloween LEGO Fun
Ran across these great seasonal models perusing Brickset. They are simple yet effective, really showing how LEGO models can shine with such few bricks. The Jack'o'lantern is just perfect and I love the use of the cheese slopes as teeth. I liked the yellow eyes of the bat…

Sea Swallow
Beware of what lurks beneath the sea! I was having fun again with LDD and POV-Ray and thought this would make an interesting render after my first attempt. I also uploaded a slightly different version to LEGO's gallery with different eyes stalks. Sea Swallow by SafePit, on Flickr Overall, this is pr…

Waterfall v2 (Updated)
Okay, I went a bit overboard creating an updated version of my Waterfall with more accurate bricks and logo. I even randomly rotated the bricks to break up the monotony of the the logos. The first version with the LEGO logo was a bit too uniform. Waterfall v2 (Updated) by SafePit, on Flickr

Waterfall
This is the second version of my simple waterfall experiment. I limited myself to a 4x4 plate and the bricks and colors available in LDD. I added a bit more foliage and color variation to the cliff. Waterfall by SafePit, on Flickr This time, I used LDD to create the model…

Adventures in Lighting
Okay, I admit that lighting isn't my strong suit. I'm good with geometry and scripting. But I struggle making the images look as good as they should. These photos are my attempts to try to get better colors and realistic lighting from POV-Ray. Waterfall was me playing around with LeoCAD as alternati…

Cube Dudes and Seagull
I've been having a lot of fun lately creating LEGO POV-Ray models and I thought I'd share! Brink Link was nice enough to post instructions for the SDCC 2010 Cube Dudes which I had to model! I've finished R2-D2 and C-3PO and they look great…

New and Old Models
I uploaded a couple of LEGO renders today, a new one and an old one. The new one is 377 Shell Station which required a few new pieces, including creating a better female hair piece…

21006 White House
This is the wonderful 21006 White House. I love the look and did my best to recreate it, but I’m sure things aren’t quite the same. I didn’t finish the back yet, so don’t turn it around. I need to find some better lighting though…

344 Bungalow
I found a number of old models from 1969 and rendered many last year, including this one. I finally got around to rendering larger a larger version with a better background (originally it has a seam in the back). If you search for this, you'll find that I fudged the trees and used something newer…

357 Fire Station
I rendered this a couple of weeks ago and thought I'd share. This is LEGO(R) Model 357 Fire Station with Vehicles from 1973. I'd like to create a more "action oriented" version in the future, but it is pretty nice to begin with. I personally like the middle engine with the two yellow round…

Flickr LEGO Fun
Flickr has become my new favorite place to share my LEGO creations. I tend to use Facebook for family and friends, manly because that is what my family and friends use. But I digress. It is pretty easy now to use available tools, mine being Windows Live Photo Gallary, that allow easy publishing…

5865 Mini Dumper
This is LEGO® model 5865 MiniDumper, part of the 2009 Creator series. I thought it looked really cool and was curious how close I could get to the original by building a virtual one. 5865 Mini Dumper by Steven Reid, on Flickr Fingers crossed that I come close with just the inventory list…

Power Station
I was playing around with World Machine and thought I’d add the height field to my Power Station image. I think it really conveys the overall scale of the scene. I also added a better star field that shows up under anti-aliasing (best seen in large version)…

21005 Fallingwater
I've finished rendering 21005 Fallingwater in POV-Ray. Only 3 new bricks needed to be modeled so most of the time was spent inputing brick positions. I like this angle as it really shows off the waterfall. 21005 Fallingwater by Steven Reid, on Flickr At the moment I’m rendering a large widescreen ve…

21005 WIP
I don’t normally post ”work in progress” but this one is pretty large and I wanted to show off what I had so far. It may not look like much yet, but I've finished my favorite part of the 21005 Fallingwater model: the waterfall. 21005 Fallingwater WIP by Steven Reid, on Flickr Because this is a newe…

21004 Guggenheim Museum
LEGO has launched a new Architecture line and I have to note that they are pretty impressive. So impressive, that I spent some time on vacation modeling the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in POV-ray. 21004 Guggenheim Museum by Steven Reid, on Flickr This model is a great example of the effort the LEGO…

Structure Synth Fun
Ran across some interesting images built using Structure Synth and rendered in POV-Ray. Thought it’d be cool to try some myself. I was playing some of the demo scenes, exporting them to POV-Ray for a high quality render. The image looked like hair and made me think LEGO minifig…

Ivy Lizard
Seems my lizard has been covered by some minor growth. I ran across this great ivy macro by hobBIT while hanging around the pov-ray.org forums and had to give it a try. Check it out yourself at this thread. 7804 Lizard Ivy by Steven Reid, on Flickr

More POV-Ray and LEGO Fun
I have radiosity fever of late, converting or creating a number of new LEGO images utilizing POV-Ray 3.7 beta. Below are two new renders. The new model is 604 Shell Car that fit nicely with some of my old models…

Cow
This is a “sort-of” recreation of the original cow image with the “Moo!” bubble. Unlike the original, this is a true brick cow and I’ve tried to make it more “realistic” then the original “flat” and shiny version. I had added the bubble with Paint Shop Pro on the first version…

Iterative Imaging Code

LEGO 7804 Lizard
Ran across this really interesting LEGO set and I just “had” to render it. I needed to model a few parts I didn’t have in my library. I also threw it into the same background I used on one of my Fire Truck renders. I might change the scene a bit to better show the texture on the front slope…
