On a Grand Scale by Tekka-Croe On a Grand Scale by Tekka-Croe
My first "action figure scale" build. And, well, of course I had to do the Chief.

Should've used a darker green though, the green here is too light. Only complaint, apart from the visor (should be orange, not yellow).

*grabs Mega-Bloks by the scruff of the neck* "Ya see? *points at LEGO Chief* This is how you make a Master Chief. Not with those silly magnetic ball-joint thing-o's, but with good ol' bricks and pieces! Now go out there, and make something worthy of this magnificent game!

Or sell the rights to LEGO...

Great work, by the way. I look at it and see the effort put into this thing and the fact I just used up most of my pieces building a frigate from the same game, I can't build it. I know how, from looking at this, but I physically can't.

Damn. I wanna so bad...

May I ask as to your building methods? When you do Lego stuff, are you a "purist" (Which means you think along the line of "NO mutilation of the bricks or pieces, and if you can't fit it in or on, then you have to find a different way" while building) or does it not matter? (When building, you think "The ends justify the means" and you will cut, saw, hack, and glue the pieces together to get your end product.)

I've cut, filed, sanded, and painted my fair share of parts, but these are usually for specialty purposes. These things are usually accessories for minifigs, or for other small applications.

But when I'm building anything else, I generally try to do it without the modification of parts. So I'm not a purist, but I try to keep parts cutting to a minimum.

So have you ever done stuff with the Technic pieces? Like... the old bionicle stuff and the ball-and-socket joints and stuff?

Not really. Good old fashion stud-and-brick is how I roll.

Cool. I never really had enough... variety in my box of Legos. Characters, ships, whatever. Never had enough decorative pieces. Although, I do have some one-of-a-kind stuff. Maybe I'll post pics of that sometime.
By the way, how do you get that monotone background when you photograph stuff?

I just use a large piece of paper (or equivalent) in whatever color I need. I have to make sure that it curves up from the flat of my desk to the vertical of my wall. This eliminates any sharp corners in the backdrop, and at least gives the illusion that the backdrop is monotone.

For example, the backdrop here is just a black poster board.

Ok, I thought it was something else. Do you use any kind of lighting, or do you just go with the lights that are around?

I have two desk lamps, one on either side of my photography desk. This gives much better lighting for photography.

As said before: Waaayyy epic here man. It's easy to just make some Master Chief Lego sticker (Well, er, kinda...), but doing the suit in detial takes some skill and thought process.
And that is why you are win 8D
Awesome job~
