TT2017 R2: The Hunt
My entry for round 2 of the tourney! (and my first try on a bit of forced perspective..)
About this creation
Note to the judges: Keep this photo as the main photo, as I tried to build with forced perspective. The photo from the side is added to show a better view on the build/base, but the back of the tiger looks a bit stupid there...

Here is my entry for Round 2 of The Tourney!

Bracket 1
Category:
Tigerís Prize:
Pescado is the only known island in the Lands of Mythron to have feral tigers. Their furs are highly valuable to both Enalicans and others residing in the Lands of Mythron. Show your character hunting down one of these feral and fierce cats in order to gain its pelt.

Opponent:
The one and only Justin Li!


So I had to build a tiger, something I had never done before, and this round I only had about 10 hours to build, because i had a lot of important tests for my study.. But I was able to finish it, and even got the change to do something with forced perspective... The main reason I used it was that I was happy with the face of the tiger, but it was a bit too big.. So I decided to go with this composition, with a crazy overhang.. The only downside to this decision is that from the side, the back of the tiger is a bit lacking in shape and details, as it has to be quite strong to hold the weight of the tiger...
But I think it looks great on the main photo below:


Here you have a better look on the base: (the back of the tiger is a bit less great because I went for forced perspective..)


And here a view at my sigfig hunting down the tiger(or at least, trying to hunt down the tiger xD)


And here a look at the face of the afraid looking tiger... I really like how it turned out :)


I hope you enjoy my build, And I hope it's good enough to reach round 3...

Thanks for looking and good luck to Jstin Li! I'm really looking forward to your entry!

Thanks for the vote, hope I won't build a beast again in the next rounds...

Quoting Isaac Snyder Clever approach to a very difficult building prompt. The forced perspective is effective, and you did well recreating a tiger in LEGO, even with a dynamic pose. You have my vote.
Thanks for the vote! It was a pretty hard category imho, and I'm happy it is recognisable as a tiger :c

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus Interesting. The mouth has some good shaping and piece usage, otherwise the build has ups and downs all over.
That's exactly how I think about it myself..

Quoting Oliver Becker Gorgeous FUN, Jaap! Now you're "putting the tiger in the gas tank", if you know the german advertising of ESSO that was sometime... ;) So much dynamic and FP, great captured in one pic!
Thanks man! I didnt know that advertising, but I can see the reference after googling :)
