Building Styles

We all have our own building styles. Some like to use stickers, some like to show studs. My personal style is generally studless, or with as few studs as possible, and I try to keep things as simple as possible, to ensure my creations have a slick look. I don't use stickers, and so try to keep everything brick built. I avoid illegal techniques, unless they are sturdy and do not harm any parts - cutting is an absolute sin in my book. Sometimes I like to try other styles too, my recent Blackbird is an example of that.

Also - when one of my creations pops up, can you tell that it's from me?

What's your building style?

mine's pretty much the same creator style. possible a few hinges and pins, but that generally it. i also use a fair bit of SNOT (Rolls Royce phantom lwb and drophead). i have tried another technique , on the abandoned van. many clips on the front.

What I should have said-

Nowadays, I see cutting a piece as a sin.

I was young and foolish ;)

i occasionally use stickers, but only if it's already on the brick, used from an old set.

I've now picked most of my official stickers off.

I never use stickers and would never ever ever ever cut, paint or alter the bricks in any way. I may one day attempt to create custom stickers to enhance the details, but may not. I feel that with every car I have built I have used very different styles, yet still kept a few similarities that I believe define my builds. I love looking at other people's builds and seeing the methods they have used, and then trying to work out how I could incorporate those methods with my own.

i've been building in 6wide Minifig-scale lately.. w/full interiors, doors, [surprisingly] sloping rooflines and more of an aesthetic leaning. 2door cars accommodate two Figs while 4doors, four! sadly tho, there's no room for an engine or functional hood :/ i haven't had the inclination to venture into larger scales yet, but if i do i think i'll start mid-range, maybe 12/13/14 wide (it depends on the class of car). even now my larger cars are 6wide while midsized and compacts are (currently) a semi-strict 5wide.
