This is an 18 inch tall Lego Sculpture of a Penguin I built for my daughter. I lost count of the amount of bricks used, but it was a couple thousand or so. A lot of plate and at times 1x1 brick went into adding to its shape. The beak has a lot of yellow plate to make the shape and the back has a much different shape then the tummy. This penguin was created with out a computer and a lot of trial and error. What a large learning task.
