2 Lego-Like Animations Using Remesh


lego style animation using remesh modifier

Felipe Esquivel experimented with Blender's Remesh modifier in order to achieve a 'Lego-Like' animation effect. Here are his first two tests.

I love Blender!

A client wants to create some animated projects using the recent Lego movie visual style. We created these two examples in just two days using the remesh modifier in Blender. SInce these are just animation tests, they are doomed to not been seen by more than just a couple of clients. We want to share the videos, it was fairly simple to create both tests.

She's my daughter, and is thrilled to work fo ths test. (No, really she is).

And this is part of another project, just "legoized" for this time:

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Finally someone made a use from this particular Remesh feature :D I really like the second animation and your daughter is prone to be a great actress!

  2. I'd love to read/see/hear more about your process, Felipe. This gives me all kinds of ideas. Three thumbs up, sir!

      That's right, just use remesh. You can freeze the geometry and it will stay the same during the animation or it can do this cool morphing if it's part of the rig. It's really cool.
