Just a quick little project I threw together for the 100 piece challenge. Considering that this is my first brick built figure and the 100 piece limit, I'm pretty happy with the outcome. My favorite parts are the hair and tie. I think they both turned out great!
I hope you all enjoy. Thanks for viewing and have a great day!
And now for ABS Television's "Outlook on Business." Tonight's feature story is on the wily businessman, Mr. Gas Oline. Due to his many SHIPs (Significant Investments in Petroleum), he is a firm supporter of the KeyBrick XL pipeline and a fierce enemy of the trans-clear pieceists...
A little "Touch of Grey." He must use Just for Men... ;)
Parts picture. There is exactly 101 pieces: 100 for the figure and 1 for the base. As you can see, I didn't use any of the mystery parts. I only had three of them, but all in the wrong colours. Sometimes a gamble pays off.....sometimes. ;)
A couple detail pics.
Sorry about the low picture quality. My camera is not so good.
Thanks to Abby, matt and David for putting on and judging this contest!
Definitely a corporate executive that seemingly is uncaring about anything but the profitability of the company. I like the minimalistic approach to the figure. Not the lack of parts or interest, just the opposite. It’s a subdued feel more than a lack of anything. He has purpose and is simply playing the part for appearance sake. The hair and tie are the standouts here. Obviously a classic double Windsor and a bit of experience and aged wisdom touching the scalp. I get the feel that he is a pure, no nonsense and completely ruthless man; a driven juggernaut of capitalism. Plus, he has a key to the Executive Washroom. I think the part usage could have been slightly more interesting, but it falls in line with his clean cut character. I admire the gamble to not use the MPs and completely respect the fact that the decision was based on not taking away from the overall aesthetic quality. I prefer that to something that is just obviously out of place; a wise decision. Excellent!
Great work, Mark. I always love to see what your creativity will bring to the pages. The overall stance of your figure is very convincing of a businessman, but I think the big win here is the hair. That grey streak is inspired. Best of luck in the contest, Mark.
