Five-trick pony

UK builder Justin Ramsden has earned a bit of well-deserved fame in the British press recently for his bust of singer Amy Winehouse.

From her beehive hairdo to the cigarette dangling from her lips, Justin has captured every detail of this notorious English character.

The techniques used to weave the hairpieces together are pretty unique.

No details are spared to give full expression of Amy staring into the distance.

We spotted a spider in her hairpiece. Whether that’s intentional or by design, is something to wonder about.

Her large earrings are captured in quite a unique form that seems quite fragile, but does the job with the 1×1 plates used.

When stared from a distance, you can stare in awe at the superb results achieved by the various techniques.

    yeah, lots of skill here. Love the hair. But I don’t think I’ll ever come around to the thought that Lego is a good medium to make facial features. Always comes out weird and creepy looking. Just my opinion.

    ^hehe, yeah I get that. I was talking about Lego busts and such in general. Faces in Lego ALL look weird to me.
