  1. I'm saying if you are waiting for extra long legs etc like the original Toy Story, they may be back in the Avatar sets.

    [MOC] 21st Century Man

    Love this! Nice technique for the hands too. :)
  3. Why not copy the copier? Using round 1x1 tiles as a nod to Lichtenstein's use of the Ben-Day Dot technique. Also made a minifig to accompany the piece, I think LEGO is missing a trick not including these in their official art sets. The original frame Lichtenstein used as the basis for his piece was from legendary comic book artist John Romita. Flickr gallery
  4. Entry: Say You'll Be There Theme: Spice Girls Note - some Sharpie use to get desired colours. Please advise if not allowed.
  5. That looks amazing! Great to see at this scale.
  6. Can we enter more than once (and yes I do realise you may be cannibalising your own potential votes if you do that)?
  7. If you wanna be my lover you gotta play with LEGO Friends The classic Spice Girls lineup - Baby, Sporty, Ginger, Scary, and Posh as created with spare Friends and Elves minidoll parts. A little recolouring on Posh's dress and Ginger's hair for good measure. Flickr gallery.

    MOC: Paradisa Estates

    That looks amazing - perfectly captures the vibe and colours. I love the conversation pit!
  9. It was released this weekend on Apple TV. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2022/01/review-fraggle-rock-on-apple-tv-is-the-muppet-series-disney-wishes-it-had/
  10. Simpler build today, but made it harder for myself by recreating 4 of the album cover variations (getting low on black tiles presently, had to scrounge off older MOCs and official sets). Each about the size of a 45, and displayed 2x2 Warhol style, pretty much LP sleeve size. Original design by the band's percussionist Noel Crombie. Reference
  11. This time trying another, more common LEGO art technique, almost entirely layered plates, with a few non-plate pieces for detail. Built mostly, but not entirely, to the stud grid. Binney's hard edges certainly lend themselves more to this style of build. Reference: https://teara.govt.nz/en/artwork/45014/tabernacle-by-don-binney-1966
  12. "Don Binney (1940 - 2012) needs little introduction to NZ art lovers so distinctive are his iconic paintings and drawings of birds and landforms. In a career spanning more than 40 years, his commitment to ornithology, environmental issues and spiritual connection with the land drove his art practice. His perspective on landforms was as distinctive as the symbolism of his stylised birds." - thediversiongallery.co.nz https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/4824317/270k-painting-boosts-Christchurch-earthquake-relief I've been working on this LEGO MOC for a couple of weeks, based on one of my favourite kiwi artist's most recognisable paintings. Took a break from this build to make the Gordon Walters one a couple of days ago, while I waited for a couple of pieces to arrive via Bricklink. This MOC is made from 5 layers of bricks. I did buy a bunch of flexible pneumatic LEGO hose to do the curved black borders, but in the end abandoned that idea. The shadows due to the layers sort of create that effect. May revisit the tubing idea sometime in the future. More images on my flickr profile.

    [Freebuild] Teal River Fortress

    That waterfall is the best part of an amazing MOC. Is it made from those superhero minifig posing pegs?
