So as you guys may already know, I've slowed way down on MOCs. This is not becasue of a builders block; this is from a time block. I am doing stuff for College at the moment and as horrific as it sounds, I don't have time to build. I also have too many ideas in my head and so I try and build them all at the same time. It is absolutely crazy because I don't have the pieces freed up to do so. Ugh. So anyway, above a few pictures I will give an explaination as to what it was intended to be and why it failed.
Bob Ross Tribute
I was inspired to make something after watching this video, kind of like Garden of Your Mind. I wanted to do a three dimentional painting so basically flat elements in foreground, midground, and background and I also wanted to have Bob presenting it, so I made a minifig version of him and a little table. I gave him a little coffee mug, two glasses of cleaning water where one was used with blue paint and the other was unused, and then just a mixture of elements for painting tools. I loved making him, and if I had a Frodo, the hair might have been perfect, but I don't, but he still looks good. Maybe someday, it will happen.
I haven't given up on this one just yet, I just need more greens and reddish browns (Also a clean work station wouldn't be too bad either.) and just some other parts to make it work. These are the only things from months ago that are still together. I wanted to give him a different method of flight other than jets becasue this was supposed to be nature themed so I planned using Gresh's blades for wings. Maybe someday.
Barriss Offee's Jedi Starfighter
I am also not giving up just yet on this one either. Maybe on the wing design, but the bit with the orange will be my design, maybe a few changes because I know it can be better. This is a fail due to a messy workstation and trying to make more than one thing at the same time. I'm going to try again, just at a later date. This is on my homepage list, so I will get to it some point. This would be the first Starfighter I made based on an actual ship that was only seen for less than a second. I only knew about it from Star Wars: The Clone Wars in a trivia on a Season 4 Episode page.
In all honesty, this is ust pure laziness at it's best. I was going to make a little contraption that changed a minifig's gender due to the conversation below I had with The Timinater. I really suggest you read it so you can see why I made this so it makes more sense.
Picture time, but before that, the contraption was to change the person's gender. Tim became Tammy, I became MCLegogirl to lighten things up for Tim since he is the butt of the joke, and then just for laughs, I wanted to throw Phipson in there. Well, he went the wrong direction and cloned himself, Oh no...
The Timinater and The Tammynater. She still had to have the classic "T" on her torso, so that stayed to make things similar.
MCLegoboy and MCLegogirl. Well, sorry to break it to you Tim, even when I'm a girl, I'm cooler. MCLG has a little comlink just for a little Sci-Fi feel and she has Green eyes like MCLB does(The visor does keep that part a secret though.) and although it is hard to tell, she has Saga Barriss Offee's Torso so MCLG can maintain some Jedi wear.
No comment here other than, "God save us all becasue he found out how to clone himself." -_-
Come up with any other comments for this if you feel like doing so.
Well, that concludes this batch of fails. Maybe someday, they may be completed or loook drastically different, but this was also kind of just an updat to let you guys know how things are.
The reason these picture don't look too great is also from laziness and not wanting to clear off my work station. Oh well, it will get done eventually.
