Caleb, The Nanodog Story

  0



Caleb is my first Nanoblock custom creation and is based on a real dog who lives with friends.



At the time I created Caleb, I was fairly new to Nanoblocks and the only other Nanoblock dog I had was Hokkaido Dog (NBC-005). I started by printing a couple of photos of dogs, including one of the real dog and a couple from dog breed websites. I had also come across Chris Tan’s web site – www.inanoblocks.com and had read his article on how to design Nanoblock creations, remembering one tip – “Start building from the smallest significant detail”. While I didn’t actually do this, I did determine that I wanted the leg to be a 2X2 block, and everything else followed from there.



The first version was very ‘block’ shaped, but size was about right. Several rebuilds later I had a little bit of shape, then started on getting the colour placements right. Part of the challenge was the very limited number of blocks I had to work with at the time – I was down to only 2 1x1 light grey blocks spare by the time I had finished him, so some block choices and placements may seem like unusual choices.

There are build instructions for Caleb at - https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.357191804417954.1073741830.356629717807496&type=3, and the full story how I was introduced to nanoblocks, including how I came to build Caleb can be found at –
