Now here’s a cult I might join: a place where bacon is revered and cooked tenderly to a delicious crisp. Builder Rifiröfi has an active imagination and the building chops to really bring home the bacon.
This scene by Luke Watkins Hutchinson (Derfel Cadarn) seems like a slice of someone’s nightmare. Check out the use of the judge’s hairpiece on the face of the ghoul.
Captainsmog‘s vignette featuring a character based on Leonardo da Vinci is an example of a creation that shows lots of fine details and techniques that beckons one to explore every corner of the build.
Prometheus, having stolen fire from the gods, was doomed to a terrible fate of being pecked by eagles for eternity. That’s a bummer for Prometheus, but it just so happens to make a really cool looking vignette, as demonstrated by Mihai Marius Mihu.
This vignette by Dark-Alamez features a must-see video showing a minifig manipulating the snowscape. Watch the first 5 seconds of the video and see if you can figure out how the builder did it. It’s a very clever and simple technique.
LegoJalex built a scene from a classic American comic and TV series, Dennis The Menace. I read some of the comics as a kid, so it was recognizable to me. Regardless, one should note the slingshot that Dennis is holding; it’s a very eye-catching accessory made out of official Lego elements and a custom sling.
Gideon_83 has made this fantastic cutaway vignette of a medieval middle-eastern fighting pit, wherein man and beast face each other in a barbaric clash.
“Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.”
If this means nothing to you, then you’ll probably not get what this vignette by Stefan Schindler (Brainbikerider) is all about.
If you don’t get it, I suggest you get your sorry behind to the bookshop (or log on to your favourite on-line bookseller) and finally get yourself your own copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. What kind of nerd are you?! Seriously. Be ashamed.
I often try to find things to blog by people who haven’t had their MOCs featured on TBB before, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to pass up the opportunity to blog a model dedicated to one of my favourite books. I love the simple but very effective way in which the scene suggests motion by having stripes in the background and it could be just me, but I think the sperm whale actually looks a bit surprised.
Gorgon heads are traditionally pretty fantastic weapons for defeating mythological monsters, but they do have their drawbacks: namely, you’ve got to keep your eyes shut, so you’re never quite sure you’re pointed the right direction, as this lovely little vignette by workshysteve demonstrates.
