Another minimalistic figure, a squirrel from 6 Lego Duplo bricks. This one has such a distinctive silhouette that I didn’t bother with correct colors. Note: I experimented with a darker background, so let’s presume squirrel was running late ;)

For a perfect farm with rooster, one surely needs a chicken too. The build is easy, I used the same concept as for seabird and duck. Color choice is crucial once again.
Down on the farm this time, spending time with a nice rooster. Colors are crucial with this silhouette, so you might have some trouble, as brown colors are pretty rare in Lego Duplo. Bottom orange brick can easily be replaced with a standard 2×2 one.
Another seaside inspired build, a simple seabird.
It’s very interesting how a color choice can affect a basic silhouette. I took the same concept for three of my ideas – a duck, chicken and seabird. The only difference is use of colors. Still, all those ideas are very recognizable. On a pic bellow you can clearly see what I talk about.
Simple Tyrannosaurus rex
I already published a more sophisticated version of this dinosaur. This time I tried my best to keep it very minimalistic. Outcome is the silhouette made out of 7 Lego Duplo bricks, with visible and easily recognizable arms, legs, tail and head. I spent a lot of time trying to incorporate arms in a way to not stand out that much – as you know Tyrannosaurus has very small arms. I had to use a different color for the legs thought, as I ran out of matching colors. On the other hand I purposefully used a different color for mouth piece.
A miniature edition of one of the largest moving vehicles on earth ever.
Redbull Air Race inspired acrobatic airplane. It’s a biplane version with 2 pairs of wings stucked one above the other. Bright and lively colors are a must, of course.
Let’s spin some air – a simple helicopter concept from some basic Duplo bricks.
Not many animals are so distinctive to let you build them out of 4 simple Lego Duplo bricks. For this minimalist inspired build it’s best to use 2 different colors – in this case snail’s house really stands.
For every construction site fan out there, a simple and sleek Lego Duplo tower crane. I used a bit special brick here to make it able to rotate. Height-wise – one can always extend it if needed. I had to keep it low on this picture because of my small lightroom “studio”.
Simple dog #3
Another take on a simple Duplo doggy. I tried my best to keep it under 7 bricks. I opted for a slightly different head variant and combined a lined brick for lower jaw and tail. Color-wise the build is pretty lame, I know – I just don’t have all those bricks in a single color.
Miniature of a police car, as simple as it gets.
