Dragon scene by Izzo

Discussion of personal LEGO Castle creations

This is the best dragon I have ever seen. The smaller creations such as creatures always amaze me more than a massive building. It astounds me how these guys find out how all these lil pieces can fit together. Mind boggling.

I like the feel the latest one has. It reminds me of Dinotopia. It doesn't look so much like a dragon to me as it does a dinosaur. It is still pretty sweet and I hope these continue.

Wow, I missed the second one! Both the new ones are great. I love the posing in all of these, and the fire in the third is very nice.

All three are superb and I can't wait for more (I'm hoping, anyway...)

zOMG aussum!!1!eleven!

This is a very wonderful art piece. The figs, though simple, suit the purpose very well. The landscaping, too, is so. The sculpting of the dragon is quite excellent, and the flame pouring out is done amazingly.

P.S. The wording in this post was very... odd. :|

Wow, they keep getting better and better. I've never seen the flame pieces used so nicely. It creates such a nice feel of fast movement.

I'm not such a big fan of the computer generated background, but oh well.

Yah, you're right. I love those books, they're awesome. I once ran a Dinotopia D20 role-playing game. It was okay... :wink:

I really love these dragons, and the figs look straight from D&D (as well as the dragons). Great figs, great landscaping, and lastly, great dragons.

Poor peasants, poor cart, poor house, AWESOME dragon. That about sums it up.

Yet another awesome scene. This dragon looks to be the best yet, IMO, and the peasants are great figs. The broken cart and smashed house are really cool as well.

P.S. wunztwice: Although it isn't really a problem, your link goes to the main gallery for all four scenes.

Not much else to add that hasn't already been said, but these are absolutely beautiful. :o

I look forward to seeing future additions.

:D Bruce, Andrew and Josh,
First of all, I would be much obliged for pick-ups on your blogs.
And, I would like to say thanks for all the commentators.
Ive been so happy, and learned a lot from them.

>the 4 wingedness of the Dragon creature
Now I'm studying the expressions of wings. It's the most difficult part of dragon's appearance.

>the arms on the wizard
Actually, I think this is not the best way, too. I'm really yearing for sales of "yellow droids".

>what are they escaping from?
I hope that everyone should imagine their own stories.
...but the wording in this post might be very... odd. :wink: ?


BTW, these dioramas are always built on 20 x 20 studs basements.
This rule bases on a contest of a LEGO store managements in Japan.

I would be afraid that my English is roughly.
I hope you could enjoy my dragon's creations in the future.
Thanks again.
izzo
