This month’s cover photo comes to us from TBB regular Letranger Absurde and is entitled Ella “Tall Tide” Kneebone’s Cabin. In this creation he augments his signature style of character building with a beautiful diorama featuring a wealth of gorgeously detailed objects.
Eli Willsea and Grant Davis built this incredible Pirate scene for BrickCon this year. All their hard work paid off as they took home the trophy for Best Pirate creation. The layout is loaded with fun details. But the best part of it is a functional waterfall that “flows” with bricks. I was very glad that they got that working. It’s a very cool and unusual feature!
Check out this time-lapse video to see how they built it and to see the waterfall in action.
Grant Davis has given this pirate a really bad day. But it’s in a really nice build, so I guess it’s all okay. Just don’t turn your back on any monkeys that might be lurking about. I love that cliff wall. Very nice use of the skull pieces and train bits!
While this pirate model by Dylan Mievis (sparkytron) is top-notch all around, it’s the face and beard that really sell it. There are good parts usages, and then there are ones that are crazy and perfect, and using the large constraction fig head from Chima’s Laval for a pirate face is absolutely in the brilliant category.
Mark and Steven Erickson (AKA Mark of Falworth and Brother Steven) have concocted a lovely little pirate lair. The rock work is crisp and I especially like the different trees and foliage. Definitely a nice bit of work on the part of the brothers. I am wondering what is hiding behind the big boulder in the middle. Inquiring minds must know!
