I've been working on an Angband miniature for the past few days, so here's some making-of pictures.
The set was carved out of foam and painted with acrylics. I put blue clay in the cracks that I was planning on keying out, to replace with lava.
The little statue (of a Balrog) was made with bake-able clay, painted, and glued to a foam stand. I had to photograph it against a blue screen, since it was made at a much larger than the rest of the set. I did this in order to get a higher amount of detail I wanted.
The bat has an interior of foam, for light weight, and is covered in a mixture between modeling clay/wax. The wings are made from real leather and have small wires (twisty ties) glued to the rim of the leather. It worked extremely well for animation and it looked awesome.

This isn't related to any stop motion I'm working on, it's just a cool/silly picture. ;)

I drew some concept for what Drauglin might look like. I used a Warg for the base of the drawing and I'll most likely do the same for the lego. I'll probably get some Green Stuff and sculpt it onto the Warg and paint the whole thing. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while :( Kinda forgot about this community :B Anyways here are some cool pics I made for some of the characters in Of Beren and Luthien. Personally my favorite is Morgoth and Gorgol. Morgoth's armour looked like metal and Gorgol.....I had no idea legos could look that creepy! XD

Sorry, I realized I forgot to post last Monday. Anyways here's the next character. Gorgol the Butcher. The orc captain of Sauron, who lead the attack on Barahir's band of outlaws. He kills Barahir and cuts of the hand holding the ring of Felegund. After, he boasts to his soldiers, how he will present the rings to Morgoth and his reward will be great. Beren leaps out of the darkness and slays him, taking his fathers ring with him.

I've been pretty busy lately, but here's this week's post :)
Here is Gorlim the Hapless. He is a member of Barahir's outlaws and will play an important part in the beginning of the film. After being captured by the servants of Morgoth, Gorlim is questioned about Barahir's hideout, but he is deceived by Sauron. Gorlim finally betrays Barahir's hideout to Sauron but in return is cruelly put to death.  

Well, today's Monday, so I figured I'd post something! :)

Mae g'ovannen (Well Met) fellow Tolkien fans, and welcome to my community!
I've created this community for all of you who wish to follow my production on my future LEGO Silmarillion short films. As you may know from watching my LEGO Skyrim Series, I put alot of hard work and thought into my Brickfilms, and the Silmarillion deserves nothing less(more actually) ;) . I have not finished Skyrim yet, I'm only halfway done, but I will gradually be working on pre-production stuff (for the Silmarillion), to be ready to start, by the time I finish LEGO Skyrim.
The Silmarillion is my absolute favorite book of all time, and will never be topped. For starters, I'll let you all know, that the first short film I will be making, is "Of Beren and Luthien" (Which is my favorite story from the book) I will cover every bit of the story, and will leave nothing out. :D I will try to post some sort of progress update every week, to let you all know what I'm up to.
I will probably not be able to start filming until next year (late winter or early spring), But if you think about it, that's not too far away. :) It all depends on when I finish my LEGO Skyrim Series.

I will be looking for voice actors, willing to donate their time and talent. I will have over ten important characters who will need a voice to bring them to life. I will be posting a character list and description, once I get it figured out. 

Please share this with all your fellow Tolkien fans/friends! All the support is greatly appreciated! :)

Le fael (Thank you) for your time!
