Lego – Quijote
I’ve always had a fascination with Lego. The first set I remember having was a firestation. When I was a little older, I moved on to Lego Technic (a mix between Mecano and Lego), which I became truly fascinated with. Probably the last time I actually played with a Lego set was around my sixteenth birthday, but even though I’ve grown older, I haven’t ever really lost touch with it (I guess it’s what you get when we grow up as big kids). Recently a friend bought me a cool Star Wars themed Lego keyring, which is when I got thinking: “How come there aren’t any spanish themed Lego figurines?”.
With this in mind, I started working on a new set of figurines inspired on “typical spanish” characters. That’s where are first figures come into play: el Quijote, the Gas Man and a football player with the new spanish strip (it even has a little star).
All of the previous images have been modelled in Maya, use textures that were created in Illustrator and are then finally composed in Photoshop. If you enjoy them, I hope that you will share them. I’d love to hear what you think.
