Note the splashing water around the oars in this lovely little microscale rendition of the legendary Greek ship Argo by Luís Baixinho:
Don’t miss the behind-the-scenes coverage on Luís’s blog.
And now for something completely different — a human cannonball (also by Luís, of course):
Awesome on the Monty Python transition
That trireme is exquisite. Castle helm use on the cannon”ball” is clever.
What’s a ‘legendary Greek shop’?
Anyways, I <3 the ship.
That monkey is really quite the cut-up!
Incredible work right there.
Monkeys are funny!
“Note the splashing water around the oars”
I’m more impressed with the wave effect. There is something so accurate about the way the waves scroll across the water. Just brilliant!
Thanks for the comments.
And yes, I spent a lot of time to put all the blue bricks 1×1 in the correct way to do the wave effect :)
On second thought – the movement effect is too good. It’s starting to make me sea-sick!
These are very cool!
I just wish the pics were on Flickr rather than Brickshelf so I could make notes there. The ship is pretty cool, but I was really impressed by the cannonball. The model really captures the action and movement, with the smoke, the minifig on a transparent bar, and the expression on his face. Then, the monkey with the match cavorting on the other end of the cannon makes it perfect.
