Midnight in the Forest
About this creation

Here's a little number I forgot to post a little while ago. I've been wanting to make a surreal forest for a long time and talking to Shannon Young recently gave me the kick in the ass I needed to return to a bit of sculpture.

I always loved the frottage style paintings by Max Ernst. So this one is a combination of Ernst, H.R. Giger and Nannan, of course. It's a little on the simple side-- I'd LOVE to build a huge, detailed version, with the bird actually caged by the mechanical-looking forest. Ahh, if only I had the time to build everything I wanted to...



Sweet dreams my friends...

The only thing that would be an improvement? A mechanical werewolf howling at the moon! Seriously - that would be awesome!

Yep, looks like everybody else picked up the same feel as I did from this (Burton). It really works well - nice build.

The moon looked real at first glance. Very cool illusion created by the all-black MOC.

You may say it's simple and small but MAN is it cool! Sure you could have gone bigger but really, this is just a stunning piece of work! ~ Chris.

This is not just a MOC. As you said it is sculpture. You are not just an AFOL, you are truly a LEGO artist.

Very nice! I love the mechanical look; it looks like actual branches at first and then a closer look makes it look like a machine.

I loved this one the first time I saw it, and that hasn't changed. This is an inspirational build Shannon, it opens doors. Please go through and build something for me!

Excellent! The photo and lighting is really well done. The bird certainly looks caged in!

Creepy to the max! I thought you photoshopped in the moon, but then I realized you actually used a piece for it! I can definitely see the "Nannanism"/"Burtonism" in this, which makes it awesome!

Is it possible I've seen this or a similar work from you before? If so, I liked it then and I like it now. The gray parrot is a nice touch.

This should be called "Midnight in the Forest of vaguely evil-ish thingys that might make you scared or feel really ghoulish -- or not." I don't claim to understand abstract art, or much of anything else, but I like this!

Quoting Yuri Fassio Tim Burton would love this, and so do I.
Thanks Yuri-yes, Tim Burton-I was trying to think of the other influence but I couldn'tt remember!
