Brunetti style character designs in Legoprint
In his Cartooning syllabus, Ivan Brunetti presents a simple formula for drawing a cartoon character that anyone can easily learn to draw and adapt to make their own.
It's a very clean, graphic approach which I figured should translate well to our custom Lego-printing process. Initial results look promising!
For a single printing, the room for expression is in position of eye, nose, limbs and clothing style. The cap, the hair and the mouth in the top two prints are from a second printing (you can see the overlapping ink). Need to take care of clear registration points for consistently positioning the paper between prints.
The vocabulary of shapes in Lego seem to lend themselves well for this. For example, the collars shape in the bottom left one is already a useful clothing variation.
