I’m gonna ask for Lego bricks for Christmas. I want to get 2×4 bricks in one color availabe at lego.com or in any Lego store (there’s one downtown and one in Schaumburg). The Lego stores have plastic cups that you can fill. I was there yesterday and I was able to get 100 2×4 bricks to fit in the $13 cup. 13 cents each. They sell 50 bricks for $7 at lego.com.
I like building abstract Lego sculptures, but I don’t like using different colors. The colors are so strong and vibrant that they distract from the formal shape of the sculpture.
Which color should I get?
Now here’s a cool Lego dinosaur.
My first instict said to go with red, cuz red is the classic lego color.
White is nice because I can photograph my lego sculptures and easily colorize them in photoshop.
Black is the most “modern”.
Gray is nice because it’s neutral.
brown and green are too earthy. I won’t go with either of those. When i think of lego sculptures, i don’t think of nature
white. it’s the color of the ipod, so you know it’s cool.
Go with black. Black goes with everything and it’s very slimming.
white. it will showcase the structure of your sculpture well, with good highlights and shadows. with black, you lose the depth. and with a color, you are distracted from the form.
