Amazingly piece of work! From far, I thought those are real sparrows.  :wub:

They are so beautiful and I really adore all of the details in there. Thank you Schfio. It's great to see your talented works inside Eurobricks.  :sweet:

These guys are awesome!

In this particular situation I really like how you've set the sparrows up in a real-world environment.  As they look to be approximately 1:1, having them on a fountain or sitting on a park bench is a perfect way to highlight how well done these MOCs actually are.  You might want to adjust your camera settings slightly though as some of the images are a bit overexposed.  I must say, you really have a lot of talent so I look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

These are BEAUTIFUL.  Nice photos as well.

Can you do some close-ups just on the build?

Thanks for posting.

They're very pretty looking little birds! :classic: I like the one best which partially rises his wings on the bench. Simply cute! :sweet:

Amazing work! Lovely little Sparrows. Never seen anything like it before.

I have a question though; is it correct that one of the sparrows can move his wings?

First of all, I want to say Hello to you all from HK! Thanks for all your kindly appreciated.

To make the sparrow, I need to make a simple sketch before. So accurate scale is done.
Since LEGO bricks are "static" pieces, in order to make animals sculpture seems "alive", I try to make them stand with different posture. How to make them much realistic? A research on the activity of real sparrows in the park is required. In additions, I read several books about them.

The sparrows there do love to stand at the rim of the fountain! However, I have made a mistake! I have took those photos at a wrong timing. Real sparrows do not appear in the park at noon under strong sunlight. Thus, you may find there is over-exposure on my photos. I'm sorry about that!

That is really cute. They look very realistic in their natural environment.

Those are really cute and they look realistic.  I think the wings look good, and look hard to make.  Good job.

Very impressive. If I didn't know better I would have thought those were real! Keep up the brilliant work!
