PostSubject: LEGO Playing Cards!   Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:04 pm

Hey guys! I'm pretty new but I wanted to share my current project. I love playing cards but I love lego even more, so why not mix both?! Smile

I'm currently working on building a full deck of cards using flat lego bricks (somewhat like mosaics).

I've been pretty successful with the low number cards, but now that I'm into the royal cards, its been tough.

So I used this lego mosaic creation software for mac os x called Photobricks. It was free for my mac so I said why not? turns out its pretty useful and works as a guide when building the mosaics since it tells you the specific location of each brick and the size, color and what not.

check it out in case you have mac os x and they even have a version for your iPhone or iPod: www.photobricksapp.com

Its a long way to go but here is my progress so far! Laugh

OK, but really not much effort put in, you know. I'd give you a pat on the back if you acutally did it yourself, even in LDD or Ldraw.

The King's shirt looks great to me! I don't see anything wrong with using software to get the preliminary planning done.
