It's been a pretty hectic year and I've been struggling to find the time (not to mention motivation) to build anything fresh. I've got plenty of ideas but not enough time to do them justice!
I had planned to do something for Halloween, but unfortunately I am not keen on hardcore horror films which meant by palette was limited. However, I had seen more gentle horror such as Alien, The Descent and of course, The Thing.
Anyway, sob story that no-one wants to read aside, I'd always wanted to do a tribute to the best music video ever. The video itself is already a tribute to a popular sci-fi/horror film that I'd seen (you can decide which one for yourselves...).
I knew all along that this MOC would be my first serious foray into advanced lighting techniques. I thought it would very appropriate for the atmosphere I wanted to create.
I always feel that the scariest thing is what you DON'T get to see, so I've left the monster here deliberately ambiguous. You can decide for yourself what's coiled around the barrel, projecting red light in the corner and has the ability to turn off lights in nearby rooms.
I hope you've enjoyed this small insight into my building process. I tend not to delve into this as I find it difficult to express myself coherently. If you've questions, please ask.
This MOC can be found on Brickshelf (when moderated), MOCpages and Flickr for your viewing pleasure.
