I finally did it!

Postby plums_deify » Fri Apr 08, 2005 11:21 pm

I took pictures. I edited them. And I sat down, and uploaded them to brickshelf. I am rather proud of myself.

So, without further ado, I present my creations.

The Smithy is a vignette I did rather early on. It's been quite a few months since it was built and destroyed.

I'm rather fond of the detail I put into the tower for this Romeo and Juliet knockoff. Actually, that'd be my sigfig. She's having too much fun laughing at the poor boy, seeing as he can't sing his way out of a paper bag.

This isn't really a vignette, strictly. It's small (7x6 stud base), but it really isn't capturing a slice in time. It was a challenge to myself to build something huge in a tiny scale. It's a minicastle!

Finally, my personal favorite. I've mentioned that I'm fond of musicals, and this is a tribute to such. I created the minifigs months ago, and finally got around to creating a place for them. I think I was able to capture part of the darkness of the Music of the Night.

What do you think? :)

I love the Phantom! In my opinion, it's the best of these creations. The scene looks very Phantom of the Opera-esque, and the Phantom fig is to die for! Christine, although more generic, looks pretty good as well, even if her stickers are coming off somewhat.

I like the tower.... The headlight bricks with jewels stuck in them is neat. The colour scheme, sand blue, trans light and dark blue and white is appealling.

A female blacksmith, very cool!

I looked at some of the other creations you have done. :D

I'd have to pick the Phantom first, and then the smithy... they are both small but full of cool little touches ~ well done!

I love the Phantom scene. the gold scattered about the floor is excellent, and so is Christine, but I think the Phantom would look better with short hair. I love the back part of it.

The smithy is great as well, especially with the horse-head armor in there. The tower is great; I love the jewels stuck into the walls.

He beat me to it. That's exactly what I was going to say.

You did a great job on the Phantom's mask. Can we have the decal you used for Christine? I kind of like the idea of having minifig legs showing from under the dress.

Thanks, everybody.

I'd think you'd all recognize the Smithy...she's my sigfig and my Avatar. She has a staring role in many of my creations.:)

I, too, am rather fond of my Phantom Vignette.

Snap Dracone--I tried it with short hair. But it really didn't get the proper effect. That, and the mask is just a little piece of paper glued on to a Luke head. The short hair showed too much of the edge of the paper.

Lord Mikal--I actually drew that by hand. No computers with that one. I used plain white paper, and PrismaColor pencils. Black #PC935, Silver #PC949, and Yellow #PC916. I glued it on using a glue stick. I'll be picking up some clear nail-polish to seal it.

Hey Darkie,

Great MOCs! The phantom is definitely the best. I think the long hair works well. Reading the book, I always imagined him with longish hair. The Christine decals are good too. You did a good job drawing them. The smithy is awesome as well. I have a soft spot for blacksmiths and even more so for female blacksmiths!

Build On,
Josh
