[MOC] Leonardo da Vinci Collab: The Polymath

Recommended Posts

For the Summer Joust team category this year, the challenge was "Just Another 'Normal' Day." My team decided to go with Leonardo da Vinci! The scenes we covered were inventing, sculpting, painting, and, of courses, sleep. All four of us built fully immersive scenes, with some fantastic editing from Jonah to finish them off.

Here's my part. I did a street corner of a Tuscan-inspired village. Now, I understand the scene isn't historically accurate. Leonardo never really finished any of his sculptures (at least that we know of), but liberties were taken for the sake of the collab :)

Here's an overview of the four parts:

Check out all the other parts! I was honored to be able to work with Joe, Jon, and Jonah, three fantastic builders.

Part I: Invention by Jon

Part II: Sculpture by Kevin

Part III: Fresco by Joe

Part IV: Relaxation by Jonah

This is a really cute little scene and I love the stark contrast between the marble sculpture and the surrounding buildings. The creeper (ivy?) growing across the building on the left is just perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! Yeah, I guess it's meant to be ivy

Great scene. Full of character. The texturing of the walls is brilliantly done. Excellent creation. :thumbup:

I only have two pieces of 'constructive criticism'. First, the minifigure should be yellow, not fleshy (I have to say that: I'm a diehard yellowist). And second, it should be Legonardo da Vinci! :wink:

Haha, we really missed a naming idea didn't we. If you look at any of my other MOCs, you'll know that I'm pro-yellow; this is the first time I made the dreaded switch to flesh. :laugh_hard:

Thank you, I put a good deal of thought into both of those aspects to make it varied but still cohesive.

You have gone from being a yellowist to a fleshite? Excuse me one moment while I burst into tears :cry3:

Thanks! Joe's Last Supper scene was really unique and he pulled off the perspective really well.
