The truth is, I couldn't either. However, what makes the Scorpion a memorable character is his powerful tail, and the action on this vig was what I really wanted to capture. Speaking of characters, the only classic Spidey villain that I chose not to build was Electro... I couldn't think of a way to do the character justice. Moreover, I didn't have the proper head for the Rhino - I wanted to use this one, but I don't own it:Bruce N H wrote:Originally I hadn't focused on the Scorpion one, as I'm not a huge fan of how you did the fig (though I can't come up with a better non-customization solution)
The idea of the Rhino rampaging out of the bank was what I wanted to capture, and even though I did not show his face, I think the action is again what really makes this vig.
You got it! Since the pen is a LEGO "product", I don't see any problem using it in a MOC... and having a stud on the bead helps, too!Bruce N H wrote:What the heck is the square fist, btw? A pen bead?
I used one of these hinges to attach The Vulture to the building:Bruce N H wrote:How in the heck is the Vulture held up? I assume that there is a support that is just blocked in the camera angles you chose, but it's masterfully done.
When shooting photos, I try to look for camera angles that hide "undesired" parts of the vignette. The last 2 shots of the Vulture MOC were my "Comic Book" shots - that is, how I think they would appear if drawn in a Spider-Man comic.
Sometimes, you get a shot like this (which was unintentional):
I think it looks like a real scorpion from this angle, so I included it.
