Jing Jing, one of the five Beijing Olympic Mascots is now in brick-form!
About this creation
Although I posted the Miniland Scale Michael Phelps first, I actually was working on another Olympic themed model at the same time.
Jing Jing, one of the five mascots for these Olympic games, looked like a pretty easy build — at first. I thought that it would only take me two to three days tops to make this model, but it ended up taking six days to make.
It was especially difficult to design the head. Getting the eyes and leaf decorations just right took a lot of planning.
And just to make it clear, there is no “cheating” of bricks in this model. I really don’t like it when people cheat (glue parts in place) instead of finding a solution around it.
