This LEGO build from Sebastian Arts (Aliencat!) was inspired by the artwork of Gabriele Pala, “but of course completely in Aliencat-style.” Right away we’re drawn to the enormity of the build, with the main focus being the blue, watery portal through which tiny flying ships pass. The blue contrasts beautifully with the otherwise muted color scheme. There’s a lot happening in this otherworldly city, with lots of traffic coming and going, reminding me of the Mos Eisley spaceport in Star Wars: A New Hope. (I’m sure there’s some scum and villainy afoot in this city as well.)
The ripple effect shown as the ships come through is a really nice and simple touch that adds energy to the scene.
A closer view of the city shows the exposed studs that can be used to move the ships to different areas. There’s a good balance between similar colors that keeps it looking fresh.
Clever lighting is employed at the base. Is this what powers the above city? (Watch it in action)
