Stargazer by Legonardo

Postby Bruce N H » Thu Jul 09, 2015 7:16 pm

Hey all,

Those of you in New Zealand should check out the Christchurch Brick Show this weekend. Forum member Legonardo will be there, and he's bringing this MOC, the Stargazer. Here's his description:
The Mystic Isles of Avalonia house many diverse persons, creatures and landscapes. Wonderful Wallace, Brother of Senneck and Harry the Hallucinating Healer, is one of them. He lives in solitude in the middle of a small cluster of islands in the center of the isles. Unlike his elder and younger siblings, Wallace has deviated from potions and other magic, and found his love in astronomy. He spends his days charting the skies, bartering with the local fishermen, and smoking pipe-weed. Also like his brothers, he has an incredibly awesome beard, which he takes great pride in. potentially more pride than what he has in his astronomical discoveries.

I think expecting anything less than stellar from Legonardo would be just rude at this point. He captured the fantasy look perfectly without going overboard through such nice details as the dramatic and strangely proportioned telescope, the clothesline attached to it, and the splashes of color in the tower and landscape. My favorite part is definitely the shaping of the roof. David really achieved a wonderful, seamless curved look here and I would be very curious to see exactly how he did this.
