Lego Demon by Magical525 Lego Demon by Magical525
So I got this crazy idea to see what it would be like to turn one of my SATW embroidery patterns into Lego. I raided my oldest son's Lego stash for the job as he was away on school camp and couldn't complain about the mess I made hehe (that youngest has less bricks has absolutely nothing to do with it ;) ).

First I built it one brick wide and counted one lengthways stud as a stitch but my son just didn't have enough black and white Lego that wasn't already in use in other projects for me to do that so I had to take it apart and start again.

I then decided to borrow one of youngest's large grey base plates and used that as the base to build on and counted one stud as one stitch and I found that I had *just* enough black and white to just about complete it :) - I would have preferred to completely cover the baseplate with white but well.. I need to top up the kids Lego bricks first lol

Artwork from this comic by :iconhumon: all I did was convert it to an embroidery pattern and make that in Lego.

What a brilliant idea! I would never have thought to cross over these two media, but of course it works perfectly!

Thanks :D

The only main difference is scale as the Demon is only a little smaller than a large baseplate so you'd need several to do say Denmark (and a gazillion bricks lol)

Holy moo! You even framed it...

I cannot even fathom the logistics that went into this...

That's not a frame.. it's actually the edge of the baseplate that I wasn't able to cover completely due to a lack of white bricks. :)

*gasp* How could you? I'm the SatW LEGO artist around these parts! Although...you went mosaic-style instead of making custom minifigs, so you are not encroaching upon my domain just yet... ;)

Joking aside, this is cute. If I'm understanding you right, it wouldn't have worked all that well the way you originally planned to do it. Single-stud LEGO bricks are noticeably taller than they are wide, so it would have come out elongated and off-model.

Is that a Technic vehicle base I see near the upper right-hand corner? (This is just me establishing my cred.)

Don't worry I'll be leaving the minifigs to you :)

It was looking ok actually - I just didn't have enough bricks lol

Yes it probably is - I was getting pretty desperate for black bits at one point lol

It's white, actually--a rectangle of open studs up near the top right. If I'm not mistaken, that's a "frame" brick with holes all around the sides.

Err yeah I also had an issue with the white but less of an issue compared with the black so it didn't seem as much of an issue. lol

It was indeed - especially as oldest came home before I'd finished and helped me find more black bits :)

Thanks :)

I had a feeling that things would work out when using an embroidery pattern as the base for this :)

Thanks :D I've had years of practice though.. been playing with my kids and their Lego since they were 6 months or so started them on "baby primo" Nowadays I don't play with them as often as I used to - they are growing up and can do the more difficult builds themselves now.

The oldest of mine got a Lego-collection aprox 4 times larger than I ever amounted to in my youth... and he expertly builds the most complex things without any help needed :|

I wasn't allowed Lego as a child.. it was for boys... :(

But my kids have a collection that is enough to make many envious - at least their friends anyway ;)

Yeah - the most my oldest needs me for most times is to dig out special bits he wants for his build and can't find lol

One can hardly go wrong with Lego :D Although it did take me 2 afternoons to make what with one thing and another (especially looking for pieces hehe)
