Out of the dark ages and into a dark house

Mike Doyle came out of his dark ages only during this summer after a visit to LEGOLAND, and he built this?! I am pleasantly surprised by the amount of realism achieved using predominantly two colors. As the builder notes, this is “more of a textural study,” and a darn fine one too.

You can follow Mike’s current and future projects on his newly created Lego blog. Thanks for the tip El Barto!

    I have to say this is the most realistic Lego creation I’ve seen, maybe even the best Lego creation I’ve seen.

    This is quite simply a work of art. I just love looking at it. Couldn’t come at a more appropriate season, either… spooky… I wish I was this creative. Thanks for making this. Thanks for posting this..

    I created an account just to comment on this. This is amazing. I wish lego would release a set like this. Like some others have said, this may be the best lego creation I’ve ever seen.

    Holy moly! O_O I figured it was an illustration at first glance and am still having a hard time it’s not.

    (Wish it was on Flickr for commenting, though.)

    Haven’t seen an MOC like this one before. Also like how the difficult-to-photo black totally adds even MORE texture to this MOC. Top notch stuff.

    Very “cool” indeed. I think… it was the icicles that pushed me over the edge of awe. I feel like the Joker as well: “Where does he get all those wonderful black pieces?”

    I also had to create an account to comment on this.
    Been lurking for months, and seen some marvellous creations, but this is truly breathtaking.

    First glance I thought “ooh, it’s going to take him ages to wipe off all that flour!”. I was flabbergasted when I took a quick peek at the detail pics.

    The more I look the more amazing details pop up and the more I’m impressed.

    Can’t wait to see what else you come up with if this is a first effort!
