Wheatley Diorama (2 of 2)

After putting together Mini-Wheatley, I naturally thought I should take a photo of him to share with you all. However, I didn't want it to be like the photo of my larger-scale Wheatley, which was effectively the model suspended against a black backdrop.

 

Mini-Wheatley's smaller scale made it much easier to create an environment for him to hang out in. I decided to play through Portal 2's The Reunion chapter again, as Chell and Wheatley travel through the turret factory and ultimately confront GlaDOS. There was a lot of interesting textures used on the walls, but one in particular stood out because it was yellow/brown rather than a dull grey. So I set about constructing that very paneling in Lego. In a few hours time, I put together to the diorama you see above.

 

I used the diorama above in a photo called Through the Factory, where I attempted to re-create the moody lighting of the Aperture Science sentry production line. You can download the Lego Digital Designer for this diorama right here: Wheatley Diorama.
