Logo concept art


I have done my best to create some awesome logo's. I am sure I will put the best on banners for my eventual Skyrim mod.

so here they come:

Here you see the original troll logo idea, along with some failed experiments. The one in the middle looks the most like my last idea, shown further down. How did I do this? I bagan with a circle. Then I added the eyes and nose, and then the teeth. I thought it looked a bit bare, so I added the cheeckbones and the concave forehead and cheecks. You can also see this with in-game troll skulls.

Next is the idea for the eye. I began with the eye itself, then I wanted it to look a bit like the sun, so I added the upper- and underside lines. then, of course, the left and the right. Then, because it looked square, I added the corner 'peanuts'

A still unused logo, wich I like pretty well. It's a tree on a starry field. This might be used as a banner or flag for some kind of druid/forest village. To the right is another idea, where the tree is much more 'alive' and human-looking.

Here you see the stages of development
 for the tree. I began as a leaf, but that was just too bare. Then I made a tree wich branched all the way to the edge of the logo, but I thought it looked too scematic. Then I got it right, in one try :).

Next is a symbol for a town. I did it all with half circles and triangles, giving it a nice abstract feeling

Here is a failed attempt to create a goat :P I'm not going to say anymore about it XD.

Two very recent ones:

This might be a logo for a warrior or assasin group. I bagan with the triangle and the pommels. Then, I added the hilts. Then I finished it. I think it looks rather good actually.

Something... rosy. This might be the logo of some knightly order, 'the order of the red rose' or 'the knights of the rose'. Or it could be the logo of an assasin guild. 'The order of the bloody rose' sounds nice.

That's it for today. I will think of what I am going to do now. Maybe some more LEGO?

A change...


I have renamed my blog today!
I thought 'lego creations' was too short of a theme, so I renamed it into 'fantasy creations', so I can also post posts (XD) from other things like minecraft and more of my skyrim mods. This does not mean, however, that I wont be making any LEGO's anymore. Like this I can also make posts in the week days.

The URL will be the same however, '' is just fine.

Something else :)


I haven't made any LEGOs this week because I've been making this:

1) a banner for am mage-like guild:

 2) a banner for a troll village:
I have to admid I have been making these instead of LEGO :). And I really wanted to show you something. I made them with photoshop using an old banner texture for the needed sizes. The trollbanner is a retexture of the imperial legion banner, and I made the other entirely myself. It is really hard to put in detail in those banners, nearly every pixel has a new color, so I have to do that as well. That's why you can see those light spots... I was a little too enthusiast XD.
I am not sure what I am going to do with. Maybe I will put it on th skyrimnexus (the website where everybody puts his mods for other people) as a modders resource, or make it a complete mod!
The reason why they are centered to the right is because of a bug with the creation kit, somehow the textures are put a little to the left. This seems to change a little if you rename your texture. If I call the mage banner 'magebanner' it is wrong in-game, if I call it 'magebanner(4)' it works... very misterious...

Skyrim/LOTR: Spider

Hi! If you read my last post (saying I was ill monday and tuesday, so I couldn't make something new), none of it is true! I still had an unmade idea left:


a view of her on my (once again expanded) mountain:

Her fighting some brave true sons of Skyrim:
Maybe you are thinking now: why does he expand his mountain everytime? Well that is because It is my best (maybe my only in history :P) piece of scenery ever. it really suits to Skyrim's enviroment, so I can use it over and over again. And to keep you from bored, I expand it everytime I use it (it is actually bigger than on the pictures than right now, but only about 3 2X1 bricks). Everytime I find another diogonal or normal grey block I put it on the mountain (It would take me about 10 minutes to just find one, so I just keep a lookout). So I don't have any grey remaining in my brick-, uuh, how do you call it? a pull-out thing in a dresser? Or my beam-(insert word).
An underside view. It is really hard to see the transition from the thorax to the abdomen (latin term alert!) because I chose to make a compact build, more like a Skyrim Frostbite spider than Shelob from LOTR. However, this spider is black, unlike Frostbites who are red.

A size comparison with my hand. Keep in mind that I am 13 and have very broad, short-fingered hands:
It all began with just the legs. Then I made the grey circle, on wich I builded the eyes, then filled the body up with black bricks. Then I covered it with those curved bricks. I thought it didn't really look like a spider, so I added the abdomen (again latin XD). It is under tension, so it has fallen off about twenty times, along with the back 2 legs. That's really annoying, you know. Especially because it's so hard to put back in place again.

I might have inspiration to make something new next weekend. Until then! And dont forget to post comments and suggestions, and answer my poll above!

Dawnguard creations

Hi! How are you doing?
My new creation is finished! actually, it was finished yesterday, but I hal forgot I needed to take pictures, and you know how it goes, one thing drives out another (says Barliman Butterbur :P). So here it is:

The blood fountain from the Dawnguard trailer, complete with vampire lord!
First, some pics of the vampire lord:

With wings spread:

Here you can see well how I did the wings and the ears

now for some more pics of the fountain:

I only used diogonal bricks for the entire model, and a few beams, tubes, and other accessories (such as the teeth things on his horns)

Have you noticed that the fountain's head looks exactly like the skull on Molag Bal's shrine in the abandoned house? It is completely the same, the horns, teeth, face an color.

I hoped you enjoyed these creations! Until next week!

Hi! I just found out that the trailer for the upcoming Skyrim DLC is out! The name (Dawnguard) was already known, but there was nothing but that and a picture.. very mysterious. This led to the weirdest speculations, about vampires, Falmer, the Mythic Dawn, a discovery of the resurrected Dwemer, the town of Dawnstar and many others. Well, now the new trailer is out, and the mystery is unveiled! It will be about some psychotic vampire lords that are going to try and blot out the sun using elder scrolls, while some vampire hunters called the Dawnguard (armed with crossbows!) are trying to stop them.

This has inspired me to create some new LEGO pieces! I will most likely come up with a few myself, but if you watch the trailer and like a particular piece, post a comment, and I will see if I can build it!

League of Legends turret

Hi! I hope you've got a great week!

My new creation is finished. It's a turret from the game League of Legends. do any of you know it? It is a game where you can choose a champion, every single one with unique abilities. There are 98 of them! then you spawn on a map. The most common one has three lanes going from left-under to right-above the map (or the other way around), with jungle in between. Your job is then to fight your way past other champions, minions, and turrets, to the enemy base, and destroy it.
I don't actually play this game (I am far too busy with Skyrim :P) but three
of my friends do.
My friend Romme has also recently started a blog, a league of Legens statagy blog, and I built this tower on his request, to celebrate the creations of his blog.

So here it comes:

So this is a LOL turret. it is like a stone statue, studded with blue or red gems, that is holding up a thorch mage of gems. If any enemy comes too close, be it champion or minion, this turret will attack it by shooting some kind of magical bolts form its torch. The turret CAN be destroyed however... but that will need some time.

Here are some close-ups of various parts of the turret:

The hand:
 The shield:
 It is a buckler in-game... but I like it better as a square shield, it fits in better with the heavy armor.

And last, the helmet:
I think the helmet actually makes the turret look a bit like a phantom form the The Legends Of Zelda series. Ith has the same heavy profile, and little horn things on its head.

So, if anyone feels at a loss how to use a certain champion, or if I inspired anyone to go and play this game and would like to know how to play some guys, here's the link to Rommes stratagy blog:

Go and check it out now!
