VirtuaLUG's annual holiday gift exchange strikes again!
About this creation
Holy happy holidays Batman! Can you believe it's year FIVE of this Secret Santa gift exchange already?
These wonderful busts of the caped crusader and his crime fighting compadre arrived at my doorstep just in time for the holiday season. The mystery builder drew on my (and their knowledge) of the world's greatest detective to create these complex works. The note inclosed read: "Dave/Devon, Merry Christmas! Enjoy! Batman FTW (sorry I didn't have the bricks in black, so I used really dark grey!"
Which nefarious ne'er-do-weller do YOU think sent me these wonderful creations?
El "Firefly" Barto
Lee "Mad Hatter" Jones
Tyler "The Scarecrow" Halliwell
Heath "Bane" Flor
Bryan "The Calendar Man" Bonahoom
Dave "Killer Moth" Sterling
Stacy "Poison Ivy" Sterling
Hans "Two Face" Dendauw
Chris "The Riddler" Phipson
Dennis "The Penguin" Price
Master "Maxie Zeus" Shifu
Simon "Owlman" Liu
Dave "Black Mask" Ware
Betsy "Lady Shiva" Sandberg
Misty "Nyssa" King
Isaac "The Ventriloquist" Mazer
Matt "Professor Pyg" Rowntree
Tune in next week, same bat-time, same-bat channel for the stunning conclusion!
I repeat: Simon, Simon, Simon. Simple deduction. I'm putting all my cards on the table. Who else in V-Lug adores Batman? Simon. Who uses the FTW abbreviation? Simon (and I've never seen any other V-lugger use it). Who doesn't like long write-up and would provide a short and sweet note instead? Simon. Who's a generous dude who would of course build one for Devon too? Simon. Who would default to very very dark blay? Simon. It...has...to...be.
Love these Bat-busts done by Tyler! They look fantastic, and I actually prefer the dark gray over black. More of a classic bat-look, really, and you know that's where my heart lies when it comes to the caped crusader! Very well done, Santa!
I'm seeing a ton of sideways thought in the techniques here, as if someone was building a perfect vehicle with trick lettering. Throwing down "The Ventriloquist" Mazer here. Completely awesome figs, love the curls of hair for Batgirl/Devon. Spectacular! BTW Love the Professor Pyg moniker, appropriately demented, thank you. ;)
