Officer Emmet's Police Car  by DTrinidad
Officer Emmet's Police Car
I tried to see what happens when I combine pieces from the Raid VPR, Demolition Driller, and Super Cycle Chase Lego sets in order to create something awesome. The result? A Batmobile-like police vehicle driven by Officier Emmet, which is actually Lego Movie Emmet on the body of one of the Robocops.
Sawbug by DTrinidad
A robotic creature I created using pieces from the Lego City Demolition Driller set that I got for free when I bought The Lego Movie Super Cycle Chase set because it was over $35 at The Lego Store.
Another shot of Tahu by DTrinidad
Another shot of Tahu
Just so I can incorporate the playable gear function where he swings both arms, I added a gold sword on his other hand.
Better than Stars Tahu  by DTrinidad
Better than Stars Tahu
Bionicle is back and I picked up Tahu. I took the head, hands, and feet of Stars Tahu, which looking back was not the best toy I bought back in 2010, and placed them on the body of 2015 Tahu for an old-school feel to it.
Punisher with Dirty Laundry Skull Symbol Cosplay  by DTrinidad
Punisher with Dirty Laundry Skull Symbol Cosplay
The last shirt I wore was just a prototype. I decided to make one more shirt, this time it's more accurate to the skull symbol seen in the short film Dirty Laundry starring Thomas Jane. What I did was when I make the stencil, I grabbed some tracing paper and traced portions of the skull symbol image on my tablet, an iPad (I'm thinking of getting an Android tablet later), little by little when zoomed in. However, what I traced was raw data. I grabbed another sheet of tracing paper and traced the previous sheet with the raw data but with nicer lines. I then grabbed some Adhesive Spray and applied the tracing paper of the final design to a sheet of poster paper and used an x-acto knife to cut the shape I want to create the stencil. After that I grabbed some white multi-surface acrylic and paint the design on a blank black t-shirt.
Batman by DTrinidad My Fan Art featured in Legends of the Knight  by DTrinidad

I was watching Legends of the Knight, now streaming on Netflix, and I was surprised that my fan art got featured.  What a perfect way to end 2014!

Your welcome! So with your drawing skills, do you plan to go anywhere with it like animation? These days, after graduating from college, I've worked on three episodes of my YouTube animated series Our World. My current project right now is a third story for my webcomic series Justice. I don't plan to rush the script, I want to spend all the time I want to make sure it is all good.

I recently reached a point where I want to change or improve the way I draw. After playing so many realistic looking video games, I no longer wanted to draw big headed characters. No offense if you like them, it's just that I grew tired with the way I draw my cartoon characters over the years and decided it's time for a change. Also, I remember my animation instructor once saying that it is always best to experience and explore real life. There is a lot that can be used as a reference for any art we do.
