Commission 3/3: Gyarados by retinence Commission 3/3: Gyarados by retinence
Here's the last commission. I'm building one of these for myself and taking it to Brickfair. He has a fair amount of mobility, but parts of him are really weak due to odd pressures.

I'll add more info later.

how do you do these? are the parts like just sticked into eachother or do you glue them together?

No glue.  Everything is connected.  I'm one of the best when it comes to that.

Okay this has got to be one of the most amazing LEGO-built pokemon. I've never seen it done better. For real.

What's funny is that I just realized I added your Bionicle Liger 0 several years ago. You have seriously become a God in this. My friend referred you to me (we were at the theatre between performances and the guy brought in 3 tubs full of Legos including Bionicles and told me about you), and, wow, I am definitely impressed. I could NEVER muster as much technic proficiency as you! then again it's all about acquiring the right pieces, right?

Having the right piece is only a small part of it. Knowing how to use available pieces to solve the problem is much more important. I have my own techniques that use my specific set of pieces for nearly any solution.

It's so cool how you've built a figure with such detail without having to make a huge model. I can imagine that the mobility makes it that much cooler in real life too. :)

This is so interestingly designed, and in fact I didn't even know it was lego until I looked closer than the thumbnail. It's super accurate, unique, and I like it quite a bit :]

Off topic question. May I ask as to how you isolate your image to place it on a solid background?

I use color paper that contrast well with the MOC. This makes photoshoping everything out easier.

Easily, no. It takes a lot of practice and the strive to keep getting better. The same as drawing or painting.

Hmm, do you suppose you know all the pieces that went into it well enough to make a lego creator kit?
Reply

retinence Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
I still have this. I don't make kits though. I do commissions and ship out the full model. Commissions are currently full.
