There are a couple of things that I envy about this build by Krzysztof J. First and foremost is that bathtub. Owning a giant claw-footed tub like that is long term goal for me. But, just behind that material greed, is envy of the skill involved in rendering this scene. Creating human-proportioned figures out of LEGO is no easy feat, and there are some great techniques in play here. In particular, I like the Aztec shield earrings and the wedges for hands. The way the balance of the figure is hidden beneath the surface of the 1×2 brick “water” disguises necessary seams and provides just a touch of privacy to an intimate moment.
But back to that tub. I love the gently sloping angles on the sizes, the sturdy construction of the legs, and the attention to detail in the overflow drain and hand-held faucet. Little touches like the alternation between solid and hollow studs in the detailing at the bottom of the basin add just the right touch of realism.
The rest of the scene is also worth investigating. The pump-soap dispenser makes great use of transparent 2×2 brick, and the bath mat feels like it has the right texture. Even the base is pretty sweet, with a nice inlaid tile floor. Next time I try and relax, I only hope I can do so in such nice surroundings.
