I was in a weird mood. I'd just seen Brazil, which may have had something to do with it. That movie is a freak-out the likes of which I'd never before experienced. Every five seconds: "Oh, my God, I don't know what the hell is happening, but I'm sure enjoying the ride." But I digress.
I was in a weird mood. I thought I'd build a neat little surrealist piece; something Magritte-ish. I'm a big Magritte fan. Though I might actually be a bigger Hopper fan; I'm looking at some of his stuff and I'm starting to really like the man's style. But I digress.
I was in a weird mood. A surrealist MOC sounded like a great idea. A beach scene, a crumbling floor, some faceless 'figs: should be no sweat. A walk in the park.
Turns out, I was mistaken.
Every now and again, in the middle of a project, a phrase will slip from my lips: a defeated "F*** this," with a greater emphasis on the first word and a pause between the two. Today was one of those days. This thing didn't turn out anything like I'd hoped. It just... didn't look right. It bore an aura of pretentiousness, as someone more eloquent than myself might say. So, the hell with it. Let's call it a failure and move on.
how do you do these scenes!? there amazing! the peice selection is incredible on all your MOC's and how they fit together is fanomanal. You dont even customize things with paint to make them! all of your MOC's are streight on and look genuinly from the manufactured box! ^^
What you have here is potential. There's no right way to what a surrealist piece should look like. Adding some details would spice up things greatly and complete the work, but if you're more Magritte than Dali, then minimalism would suit your purpose, and in that case you'd be done.
Alex... we need to have a little talk... the minifigs are creeping me out (not as bad as Master Chiefs do, those things give me nightmares for weeks at a time). Now where were we? Oh, yes. Copy of Brasil on DVD, $15. Brickshelf order $78. Years of Therapy... priceless. Later Chris.
