Relativity WIP
I don't normally post WIPs, but being my largest project to date, I thought it couldn't hurt to show you all the progress of my rehashing of Star Wars Relativity. This new version, while retaining the same idea, is significantly larger, cleaner, and much less rough around the edges. Enjoy!
About this creation

The original Escher print.


My 2010 rendition of the work can be found here.


I started by doing several drawings and concept sketches. Replicating Esher's work really helped me grasp some of the complex geometry that would need to be represented by the Lego bricks. I also managed to download a 3D model created in Google's Sketchup and virtually walk around inside the artwork.


A very rough test of scale in LDD. At right around this point, I'm starting to hear the sound of dollar bills flying away to Bricklink.


I start building. It is my intent to have the entire piece lit with six or seven lights from the interior.




Oh. This is Herbert the tablescrap. He managed to squeeze his way into this post.


The back of the piece will be cleanly enclosed in light bley with several access doors for lighting.


And finally, a preliminary lighting test.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned! Come to Brickworld Chicago to hopefully see it completed!

It's looking excellent so far, Paul. Keep up the good work! We have to have some individual shots of some of those sections when the MOC is finished. Great job!

Excellent! I love Escher's art. Maybe this finished work will end up in a museum one day! Good work

A master piece in the making! Max told me you were working on this. Brickworld? Yes, no, maybe so? Well, what ever you end up doing, this is very impressive! I would never have the patience to draw sketches like that...JUST GIVE ME THE DARN LEGO!!! Hehehe. Well, while I go work on developing the virtue of self-discipline, you keep building Paul! I'll be very interested to see the final product!

Wow, that is amazing! You have no idea how glad I am that it won't be ready for the MocAthalon; it would destroy everything in the forced-perspective category. Can't wait to see the finished creation!
