Let me start out by saying, this is my first MOC in about 2 weeks, which is strange for me because I usually dish these things out faster than meat pies. Also, the pictures were taken with my new camera, so the photo quality has improved greatly, which you'll see.
Ok, so I saw Tim Burton's: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street a few days ago. Some parts were implied, like the bodies being cut up into pieces, but it had it's fair share of blood and throat-cutting action. I couldn't help but laugh at some parts, though it is supposed to be horror/musical. I really liked it, so here is a doirama/vignette I made. (Yes, I painted the hair: I think the paint is washable, though.)
So, on the top, you can see the barber shop, which is over Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pie Shop (which I will eventually build), and the basement with the meat grinder. Todd has just killed another victim and has sent him down the chute in the barber's chair he modified to swing backwards, so the bodies can go through the trap door. On the bottom is the basement, and blood-soaked cobble-stone floor. There is a small pile of bodies. Also know that the wall is just supposed to be a 'corss-section' so to speak. It's not broken, or anything like that; I just built it that way to be artistic.
Great stuff, although i thing the content of the grinder should be more gory and red. how do you chop up someones arms and legs whitout major heammorage?
And how is the top conntected to the bottom? magic?
I like it

Having just seen that movie, I must say that you captured the look and feel of it very well. The chair, the floor, the grinder... spot on, in every detail. Solid execution of an amazing idea. Well done!
