this is me(not literally) new guy. i just got here, and i still have some things too learn. i've got all the goods, a great collection, some skill, some expireance, and the other stuff... photografy, brickarms, the like.... but i still need some help. teqniques, ideas, inspiration. if you have something to give, don't hesitate. i'm open too help C&C, so just hit that comment button and tell me what you think.
the world is open like a door!
a starter piece of advice, is just play around with different bricks and combinations, not aiming to build anything in particular, just to form an understanding of what different combos bring to the table. and a second piece of advice is draw a sketch or two of what you would like to aim to build, if for nothing else just as a solid goal to aim for. if its a mech/robot, dissect it into its sections, ie. arms, legs, torso, ect. and then try meshing pieces to create the shapes you have drawn.. you will see it all starting to come together and you will be teaching yourself your own style!!
congrats on stepping out and asking.
now show us what you got!
I see no one has commented with help for you yet... Well, help has arrived, my friend! Just take a look at some of my creations, and don't hezitate to ask questions!
P.S I like your minifig! Very cool!
