Lego Spirit of the Woods Moc!

I thought it would be fun to try and create the characters from my short film Spirit of the Woods in Lego.

It was fun trying to source the parts for the figures that best resembled what the characters were wearing in the film. Some parts are custom printed Lego as I couldn’t find an ideal official piece.

I then thought it would be fun to make some box art that could be sets for the film. Created in Photoshop and After Effects. One is just the group of figures and the other is some figures in front of a castle from an old set that I still have.
