homeworld and bulldogs and... er, nothing else... oh my!

I seem to be cursed with having to reassure people that I'm not dead every time I post. Oh well, here goes: I'm not dead.

And I'm very glad of it too. If I were dead, I'd have never seen this sweet new microscale ship from spook. There's just so much to love about it: The color stripes, the greebles, the docking bay, the simple yet elegant shape, the subtle details... I'll stop even trying to list everything that's awesome about it. The stripes are great because instead of being all boring, they have little bits of licht blue in them, and there's a gap in one of them. They are also completely uninterrupted save for the above things. So they're very well executed. The greebles, as Bram pointed out on Flickr, has a amazing amount of variation for the amount of space it takes up, and that space is very nicely shaped. The docking bay's orange border is quite pwnsome, and I love the use of the whatever-those-are's for docking rings. But all those details aside, this ship still has a very good shape. Those white canopy parts make excellent nose sections, especially with the sensors sticking out from the one. The mandibles on either side of the docking bay only add to the awesomeness., and the little bunp on the nose, which I'm assuming is the bridge, is so well integrated it took me several looks through the gallery to realize it was there, and when I did I loved it for some reason, so now I decided I'd mention it.

Duane Hess, also known as Legozilla, has made a very good bulldog sculpture using Bram's sculpture generator thing. Nothing much to comment on, it's just a great sculpture.

And I'll rip off Mike and post musical influence: Aerosmith

No comments:

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
