With the release of the new Lego movie (which involved one well-known Blender artist as well!), this tutorial comes at the right time. It's not Blender specific, but it should provide you with enough handles to create your own Blender Superhero character :)

As we're sure you know by now, we're huge fans of Lego art here at Creative Bloq. So you can imagine our excitement at the release of the much anticipated Lego Movie in cinemas.
To celebrate the film's release, we asked digital artist Pat Imrie to create this awesome CB superhero Lego mini-figure. And now you design one too with his brilliant step-by-step guide on how to create your own 3D Lego character.
This guide was created using Maya, but any 3D software can be used including free software such as Blender (head here for some Blender tutorials to get you started). So let's dive straight in and start Lego modelling...
You should correct the title: LEGO not LOGO!
Who was the Blender artist that was involved in the production of the movie? I must've missed out on that part.
It's up to him to come forward with that story, I don't feel like I should share that without his consent.
Okay, that's alright. I do hope that he does that someday, would love to hear how it is for a Blender artist in the cg industry.
Oh, and I just wanted to tell you how much I love Blendernation. Thanks for providing Blender artists with such a great news site.
Thanks for your discretion Bart, but since the movie's out and the we're in the credits, I can say there are actually actually 2 of us Blender open movie alumni working on it. I was in the animation department and Matt Ebb (of Elephants dream and Kajimba fame) was in effects.
Thanks Beorn! :)
