I've recently figured out how to make box art designs for LEGO models. I used Google Sketchup version 8.0.4811. It was a free download. At first it was kind of hard to use, but with the help of a few tutorials and experimenting around I figured it out. Here is how the box came out:
I added the shadows and any lighting. I didn't have to put it through a renderer or anything like that. I got my pictures of the Google images sight (follow instructions in previous post.). The gold bar was created in Blender 3D modeler version 2.67a, I took a picture of it and pasted it to the picture.
This is the original image that I made in my Paint Application on my computer. I then added this "Gold Bar" to the image.
With some shifting around I made this:
The stone table was just the model I decided to put in because it's my favorite model so far. This is the Prince Caspian version of the box. Other versions coming along. This is what the box looked like before:
Till next time!
I got some new programs that can make way better graphics, so I re-designed the Box Art. Enjoy!
The Set Image could still use some background help, but I'll just leave it for now.
