The Bridge that Spans the Brook
About this creation
















"Now if you doubt this tale is so, I met that spook about a year ago.
I didn't stop for a second look - I made for the bridge that spans the brook!
For once you cross that bridge, my friend, the ghost is through, his power ends.
So when you're riding home tonight, make for the bridge with all your might.
He'll be down in the hollow there, he needs your head, look out, beware!
With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop, he's out looking for a top to chop,
So don't stop to figure out a plan, you can't reason with a headless man!"

~Bing Crosby, Walt Disney's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

This is a little MOC just in time for Halloween. Based on the famed "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, it features a lanky Ichobad Crane escaping the wrath of the Headless Horseman over the covered bridge connecting the [Western] Woods with Sleepy Hollow. I focused on two elements with this creation - composition (the ground is not "floating" but instead it is [supposed to be!] a more artistic means of landscaping), and texture - notice the uneven tiles on the bridge's roof and the many studs in the landscaping and on the tree.

And remember - the horseman comes - and on Halloween night, he comes for you!

As others have mentioned...love the roof work. Fun approach to a more properly proportioned fig, too, especially given Ichabod's physique in the book and Disney version. Great stuff.

It's interesting trying to see how you manage to get so many different angles on this build, especially the with the thing the Headless Horseman stands on. Great job =)

Man, I love that story. The bridge reminds me a bit of the one in Beetlejuice. Though it's a bit early to be saying it, Happy Hallowe'en! Good day

It really is amazing how you created something out of little precision made plastic bricks appear to be so dilapidated (I hope I spelled that right)! Your vision is, as usual extraordinary. Regards, Eric.

Oh, and here I thought the hand was supposed to be a bulge in his pants. He probably has a quill in his pocket or something. ;)

There goes another original idea for me, but this is better than I could have done. I really like it all, includeing your new style of minifigs. You make the best trees too. Love the bridge. I like the brook. Good job. ~Blake~

The brown hand holds the legs to the body; there's another one facing the back to which the other leg is attached. I haven't perfected the technique yet. ;-)

Nice organic feel to it. Although, what exactly is the purpose of that extra "brown hand" on the minifigs pants?

By adding you as a favorite builder, I think that should be congruent to commenting on every single one of your creations. Why don't I simply comment on them all? First, that would take a while. Second, with some of them I would most likely have a hard time saying what I like about it and actually leaving a proper comment. Because if I left "Awesome!" That would sound somewhat silly in my opinion. But truly, your creations are "Awesome!". So like I said, adding you as a favorite should be the equivalent of commenting on them all.
