MOC: Captain Jimmy
Posted 04 March 2013 - 12:25 PM
I built this for a contest over at Forbiddencove.com: in this socalled 'Pirates Part Plunder' we get two weeks to build a MOC using a seedpart. This round, the seedpart was the minifig crowbar. I immediately got the idea of building a beard with the crowbars, but since I hadn't done any sculpting before, I was afraid it might be very difficult. It was actually a lot more fun than I thought.
The name Jimmy is a wink to the crowbar, ofcourse.

This is a real "desk-topper", right?
You've fallen for one of the classic Blunders! the most famous of which is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this, Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!!

It really was! Especially building the eyes was a strange experience: when I tried an expression, I took a step back to see if it looked good. That took a while.
Thanks! I can see what you mean, the red hairs of the beard look a lot like the technique Van Gogh used. That's funny actually, how a building style and painting technique look the same.
