About this creation
Showdown of the Space Horses! The benevolent Guardian verses the evil Night-Mare!
(Note: it's totally Crimso Giger's fault for inspiring me to build these. Thanks mate! Also I was deeply influenced by this amazing sculpture I found on Flickr )
First version of the Guardian:
Almost there but some areas were a little clumsy. Also the head started looking less like a horse and more like a goat...time to redesign the head, neck and wings.
Better head, more feminine wings was the ticket. I wanted Guardian to have a graceful, elegant look.
Night-Mare, embodiment of all that is evil and rotten in the Universe! Night-Mare's appearance was to be more angular and blocky than Guardian's. I'm not really happy with his wings; they sit a little too far forward on his neck but it was the only way to keep the nice taper of the neck into the body. I tried building some more greebly-skeletal ones for him but they just didn't fit. I also toyed with the idea of his wings been ripped off, leaving only stumps...
It was a hell of a lot of fun sculpting these: both because of the toy-like factor but also there's something primal or ancient about making a horse, even if it's out of plastic. Graven images are fun!
Uhm, dude these are out there! Very neat cyber pegasai! I saw you mention Crimso, is this something you guys have been working on on Flikr or something? Very original and bldy well made, I can't even fathom where I would start trying to build a pegasus, heheh, neat work, and thanx for the thumbs up on my latest effort - I'm going at it like mental now...
These are truly elegant and magnificent creatures of lego. Just a thought, but maybe you should change the wings of the dark one to be more spread out, it would add to the demonic feel. But seeing as they are your creations, go for what you want and keep building!
"One shall stand, one shall fall?" You were watching Transformers while you were writing this weren't you? hahaha Great work ShannO! The stumpy idea woulda been cool... maybe think about going back to that? ~ Chris.
ShannO, another crazy creation! I love them. Is the Guardian a Pegacorn or a Unisus? Checked out the sculpture that inspired you, but my sick mind can only see the unfortunate positioning of its tail...~H
