Anatomy of a Midnight Tablescrap . In which watching Doctor Who would've made too much noise, so off to the LEGO I went. . Howdy. This won't be much, but if you've got nothing else to do, have a sit-down and take a listen. I wanted to make a skull illusion. It'd been on my mind for a while, but I never really had to incentive or any idea how I'd do it. But then I thought about it for more than two seconds, and came up with a Classic-Spaceman-Odyssey-of-Flight-33-Twilight-Zone kind of concept. I got to work. First, perspective. The illusion would only work from one POV, so I set up a little viewpoint: Next, the shape of the skull: a circular doorway. Give it a background... ...flesh it out a bit... ...add some stairs... ...then the first minifig. Give him black hair, because he'll be the first eye socket. Now the second minifig for the other eye socket. Can't have them both turned around, so the second dude will have to be black to provide the necessary contrast. I used one of only two black minifig heads I own; my head collection is so very racist. I blame the LEGO group. Put a black gun in the guy's hand to form the skull's nose hole. Technical term. Add some more light, take a picture or two, and you're done: Ta-da! Thank you for joining me tonight, and have a lovely evening.
