Electronica and an X-Wing
It shouldnít come as a surprise that I have multiple hobbies. I tend to want to try new things, which often means I donít stay focused. In the case below, I divided my time between two of my interests. Iíve been playing around the last few weeks with ACID Studio and finally got around to uploading …

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 Jackíoílantern is just perfect and I love the use of the cheese slopes as teeth. I liked the yellow eyes of the bat…

Sea Swallow
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 LEGOís gallery with different eyes stalks. Sea Swallow by SafePit, on Flickr Overall, this is probably the best of the dozen or so at…

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 Steven Reid, on Flickr

Adventures in Lighting
Okay, I admit that lighting isnít my strong suit. Iím 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 alternat…

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

Watermelon
Here is my take on LEGO Stores Watermelon Monthly Mini Model Build for July. This model screams Summer and one just didnít seem enough. Playing around with better lighting, fog to soften light and JPEG artifacts, and a bit of focal blur thrown in for good measure. Enjoy! Watermelon by Steven Reid, …

New and Old Models

21006 White House
This is the wonderful 21006 White House. I love the look and did my best to recreate it, but Iím sure things arenít quite the same. I didnít finish the back yet, so donít 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 Iíd share. This is LEGO(R) Model 357 Fire Station with Vehicles from 1973. Iíd like to create a more ďaction orientedĒ version in the future, but it is pretty nice to begin with. I personally like the middle engine with the two yellow rounds…

Flickr LEGO Fun
Flickr has become my new favorite place to share my LEGO creations. I tend to use Facebook for family and friends, mainly 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…

Fly Me To The Moon
Playing around with POV-Ray animation. This is LEGO model 367 Lunar Lander. Iím trying to be a bit more ambitious with camera sweeps, using easing functions and launching the lander into space! Since Flickr allows videos as well, I threw a copy there as well…

Promotional Windmill 1976
I finally got around to trying my hand again at animating some of my virtual LEGO creations. I decided to go simple and animate the vanes and a simple camera pan for the promotional Windmill circa 1976. And, to really get my geek on, I uploaded it to YouTube. This was fun and I already have some i…

5865 Mini Dumper
This is LEGOģ 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 Iíd 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
Iíve 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 Iím rendering a large widescreen ve…

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…

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. 7804 Lizard Ivy by Steven Reid, on Flickr Check it out yourself at this thread.

Iterative Imaging Code

LEGO 7804 Lizard
Ran across this really interesting LEGO set and I just ďhadĒ to render it. I needed to model a few parts I didnít 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…

More Lorenz Attractor Fun

Playing With The Lorenz Attractor
I was searching for some pov-ray liquid routines and ran into an interesting article on The Lorenz Attractor In 3D. The Lorenz Attractor is an interesting equation and surprisingly beautiful. Since there was a sample pov-ray macro on the site, I thought it would be fun to generate some pictures…
