  • Thanks, I was kinda going for a really dark feel with the whole MOC (very simple in terms of lines and colors) but especially on the Batman.

The Silent Guardian - 3D Batman Mosaic

Newer Older

I've been wanting to do a Batman MOC for a while now to in some way pay homage to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. This idea came to me while sketching one night; I tried an art deco styled Batman (probably inspired by 1992's Batman: The Animated Series) and really liked the result, so I set off to built it out of LEGO. After a few days' tweaking, this is the result. I'm pretty happy with it.

"He’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a dark knight."

    This is phenomenal! Just wow. This is some true art my friend. Btw...are those some engraved signature tiles in the corner? :) / do you need some more of them? For a Retired Fan of LEGO you seem to keep pretty busy. :) But seriously amazing job. Very impressed.

    Awesome! thanks for the Blog, Bruce!
    Thanks, Tommy. Yes, they are engraved alright, and I'll probably be needing more soon!
    I guess I'll have to change my status to semi-retired fan of LEGO... ;)

    Incredible. Even looking at it from an artist's point of view- LEGO or no LEGO- it's amazing.
    Great work!
