Joe and the ladder

Postby eNiGMa » Sat Oct 14, 2006 12:21 am

I haven't vigged in a while, but I just couldn't resist the urge to build a Joe Vig vignette on Friday the 13th. So, here it is: Joe walks under a ladder. :P

Hehe, that's good! For some reason two of those scared faces don't bother me at all. The sweat really makes it on this VIG. The only thing I might have done different is maybe have the glass closer to falling or something. But even as is I really like it! Thanks for sharing.

I don't believe in bad luck. I think that if people think they'll have bad luck, they'll create it. Since Joe obviously doesn't know the superstition, he won't have bad luck (for once). Aaanyway, enough philosophy, great vig! I like the architecture, and the grill holding the ladder is a great idea.

Great Joe Vig! Jeez, how is he not dead yet? I mean, glass falling on him, A giant chicken attacking him, when will it end! Poor Joe!

Keep up the greatness, man!

Great vig! But you need a black cat in there too. :)

Actually, Joe has extremely good luck. Look at all the bad things that have happened to him and he keeps on ticking!

Hmm, you just completely pholisiphied the joke out of that vig. But as to avoid both a flame war and being labeled a troller (which no one sane wants), I would like to severly apoligize for any offense you took from that. I guess my first instinct is to apoligize, but that's off-topic. Anyway, nice vig eNiGMa, keep it up!

I couldn't agree more; unfortunately, that was the closest I could position the glass to falling without it actually falling! As you can imagine, it proved to be quite frustrating. :roll: In the end, I figured I'd just rely on the scared faces to get the message across that something's wrong above Joe. :)

Thank you all for your comments!

On first glance I also read in a 'for once it's not falling on him despite walking under the ladder joke' perhaps it is how you look at it...

God Bless,

Nathan

I like the expression on the minifig on the ladder, good work. I was thinking of doing one myself actually - of a knight templar being burnt at the stake in honour of the occasion ;)
