3D LEGO pirate captain by ninjatoespapercraft 3D LEGO pirate captain by ninjatoespapercraft
I've been working on a 3D figure of Kapitein Knoest (captain Redbeard, from the classic LEGO Pirates line) for a while now, this is how far I am right now.

Once the 3D model is done, I'll make him into a paper model (a bit bigger than a regular LEGO minifig, though... ;o)

So first he lost his hand and now you lost his hook??

The life of a LEGO pirate captain is a very harsh one, I guess... ;o)

Ah LEGOs, the toy nobody ever outgrows. I've got a big box of them waiting in the closet. I remember I would always try to build super-villain lairs with super computers and frikken laser beams.

I think they put something in the plastic that makes you addicted for life... ;o)

Will the legs and arms actually move?

Yes, I am making them using "pins" so all the parts can move and be taken apart just like a real LEGO minifig. ;o)

You could shrink the templates when they're doneif you really wanted to, but I think it would be *very* difficult to build if you make it that small...! ;o)

I think he's feeling a little light-headed.

Yep, I'm using SketchUp for this one; some parts were pretty hard (especially the arms) but most shapes are pretty simple so SketchUp works great for this! ;o)

I hate Sketchup.

It's so hard to use >o<

Ever heard of Misfit Model 3D?

Haha I think they tried to make SketchUp so easy that even inexperienced people can use it to make simple models, but for people that are used to more advanced programs, it can be difficult to have to sue simple tools to make more complex models, yeah... ;o)

I never heard of Misfit Model 3D, to be honest; I often use Metasequoia for my paper models myself, and a lot of other people I know use Blender, or other freeware programs (for paper models, you don't really need very fancy or expensive programs ;o)

I use Blender too, but never heard of Metaesquoia.

And Sketchup is so annyoning.

I remember me fighting with it to make a simple cone or cylinder xD

I think it's more that Sketchup works with extruding tools, the others software generally use vertex editing, plus some other stuffs.
