Stuart Lucas, biologist extraordinaire, animal lover, and possible transvestite. Have to verify the latter with the experts later. (PS, Kelso got back to me and says it might just be a bad folding job.)
Anyways, this distinguished English gentleman was feeding his koi one day when he got a wonderful, *awful* idea. What if he used his biology gifts to create a fish which needed no food? The ultimate pond fish.
He succeeded, and immediately set to work modifying all his fish.
However, unbeknownst to Stuart, LukeClarenceVan had switched out the koi for giant piranas.
As soon as the fish were freed of their dietary constraints, Mr. Lucas was devoured. The saying goes - "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." Sadly, nothing stopped the piranas from biting the hand that imprisoned them.
Hopefully you enjoyed your demise Stuart, it's always a pleasure to compete with or against you. I decided to go large scale with this, to test out a technique (in the main image) where black bars in an image can lend a more 3-D appearance - Yuri did say he wanted the violence to jump off the page. ;) Thanks to Yuri for this truly sadistic category, it was great fun to build in and no matter how the contest goes I'm glad to have finally built a large figure that looks decent. (I built one awhile back which was so terrible I didn't even include it in tablescraps.) Thanks to the judges for your time, and to my competitors for motivation to build better.
Ouch, nasty. Brilliantly imaginative as ever - and yes, the bars do help the picture leap off the screen. The large scale fig of me is so good, I might have to duplicate it for my own nefarious porpoises. (I started working on them right after the Koi). Thanks to you too for a fun round, and good luck!
Can't believe you haven't brick built figures before. This guy is great! Love the spectacles, clever way to imply the bridge. Love the chin and his screams of agony. Great proportions overall. You ought to do more of these. Excellent!
