The Old Man and the Sea of Suffering
Team 5 Easy Pieces in Man vs. Wild
About this creation
When I read The Old Man and the Sea in high school, I didn't recall anyone in my class who enjoyed this depressing tale. There's just not enough action, you know?

The printed tattooed minifig is from Citizen Bricks.

Perhaps not exactly what Mr. Hemingway had in mind, but symbolic of the story none-the-less! ;) Fascinating build! I actually did a book report on "Old Man and the Sea" last year.

Amazing! But bones, as much as I like you, you, really shouldn't be giving the lowest ratings...

I agree with Phippy: where the party at? Time to get down with our sick, twisted selves! This is amazing, by the way.

Brilliant, the design on the black sea was quite cool. Your score = 4

Good job you have been one of my favorite builders for a long time. Detail is shown in every creation you make, and every one else can see it.

I love the symbolism in all of your mocs. Though most of the creations you post are fantastical, there is so much realty in all of them that it seems very realistic. Great work! I love the boat!

Never read the story but I am really digging the sea monster. Very impressive detail as always. Not to mention the boat! Great Job! Keep it up.

Very cool stuff. I love your take on the sea of suffering ;) I didn't enjoy reading it very much in school either. I reread it last year (after a short stay on a small boat in Cuba, where an older dive master caught a marlin on our way to a diving spot; a coincidence just screaming that I had to read it again) and I quite enjoyed it and its underlying tension and tragedy.

Very Nice! I didn't enjoy the story that well either. I personally think it kind of sucked. Anyway back to the moc, I agree with Cody, excellent use of rahskhi heads!:)

Very cool little boat, and an interesting take on Hemingway's classic tale!

Though admittedly you have built something dark, in it's own strange sort of way it's quite well done.

It's always fun when builders use pieces from years and y7ears ago, like using the ninja flying contraption wing as the sail.

Very Nice! I didn't enjoy the story that well either. I personally think it wasn't that great. What really confused me was that my teacher was really enthusiastic about reading it. Anyway back to the moc, I agree with Cody, excellent use of rahskhi heads!:)

I really, really like how you either reduce colours to a minimum or do the opposite and create something very colourful. Either way, it's always beautiful.

I don't get to often on these pages here anymore (life!) but it's always nice to see one of your creations when I come around! That octagonal part is in my top five list and you made excellent use of it, pics are top notch too. Nothing short of Nannan-ness, keep 'm coming!

Weird twist on that title. Funny, in a strange, disturbed way. Best of luck with the judges (you'll only need it with Mr. Bones, though).

This is an exceptional piece of design of a scene. You really brought out the message on a very cool way. I'm into Technic and I don't build things by using parts that you've used in your project, but I watched this model for a while, because I like the arty spirit.

The more I look at your creations, the more I like them! You've got a very unique style that makes each of your creations a puzzle in of themselves. Very cool stuff!
