Pittsburgh Penguins logo in LEGO bricks
I was inspired to recreate the Pittsburgh Penguins logo in LEGO bricks on Sunday.
It took about 2.5 hours from start to finish. I started off with just making the yellow triangle in the back to figure out what scale I would be able to achieve with the pieces I have. I knew I wanted to make it a little more 3D, so I started with the white belly next making some 2×4 white pieces stick out so that they would lend to the structural integrity of the hockey stick.
Here’s the original logo that I used to replicate:
You can see that there’s no good way to duplicate those gloves, so I just made a few phalanges-like collections surrounding the stick.
For a quick turn around, I’m happy with it. There are a few things that I could easily do to improve it, but I’m just starting out to get an idea of where my strengths are naturally and what I will need to work on.
