The Riddler Is Coming (Remix)
About this creation













Behind the Scenes:



This was a creation I did a while back for some fun with a few other builders. It's been on MOCpages, but under a psuedo name. Recently, I'd provided some advice for others about doing comic-style posts. Between that, and not posting for some time (due to a secret BW project), I thought it was time to pull this - and another sequel to this - out of the closet for everyone to see. Who knows. Maybe I'll even follow up later with some additional segments. The combo of building and photoshop work was a blast with these. Here's hoping you'll enjoy them as well.

Look for the next segment with the Riddler in another week or two, and as always...

Thanks for stopping in to check out my work!

Okay, so criticizing an artist probably is a bad idea, and I may be completely wrong about this, but here goes: The skyline shot is driving me crazy because although the sunset is behind the buildings on the horizon, the light on the foreground structures is coming from behind the viewer. Now this could be from some other light source, but it's tinted as if to suggest that it's coming from the setting sun. Either this is a case of conflicting directional light, or there's some really good reason that I'm not getting.

Great mini city-scape! The one technique part used as a crane in the background is simple yet effective. Oh, and I love the brick walls in the warehouse!

Quoting Connor Simpson Very good use of image editing. Now I am extremely curious about that secret Brickworld project though. Can you give any hints, or will it remain a total secret until you wish to reveal it?
Gotta keep it on the down low until the Chicago gang gets to see it. But a hint? Hmm...well...okay: It's big. ;)

Well it's about time! It's not like you're building any 6 foot mocs or having to pack them carefully and ship them to Chicago or anything. Get your act together man! HAHA ~ Chris.

Awesome! I want to play with you guys! I would love to see more LEGO comics from you, Mark. And, your minifig oil painting on your front page is gorgeous.

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy Photoshop and LEGO, two of my favourite tools, just like yours (apart from oil and acrylic), I suppose. Is there a little bit of Frank Miller or Dave McKean inspiration in your excellent MOC?
Unforunately, I'm not familiar enough with comics for those guys to really have influenced the look (although I know of miller's stuff as a result of the movies from his work). If anything, I just wanted something really dark, but with dramatic compositions, color, and light. Maybe a hint of illustrative artist Frank Frazetta in the mood of the post.

Quoting Michael Kringe Very nice comic, Mark! Is that minifig custom or Lego?
That's the Lego standard Riddler. I put a glow in the eyes with photoshop to go a bit more "wicked" with his appearance, but other than that, he's straight out of the box.

Quoting Kayne _ So if we are trying to solve the riddle, to permeate is a synonym of perforate and also means to spread throughout....so somehow the poor souls were killed by.....some sort of gas that permeated throughout the warehouse?
The riddle is actually one to introduce himself to his would be antagonists - so it's about him, rather than his first crime. To perforate or spread througout in this case means to "riddle." (Like "riddled with bullets" for example). ;)

Well, it's about TIME you posted something, man! I love the combination of Lego and Photoshop and love doing that myself (when my Mac isn't acting up). The warehouse/dock shot and the basement wall are my favorite part of this post. Can't wait for the next!
