Wasp

Build Time: 10 Hours

 

Wasp is a continuation of my study in Brick-Built figures of the Superhuman variety; with here being an emphasis on form. I was really trying to achieve graceful movement, which I think was especially well done in the arms.

 

Again here, like Wonder Woman, I'm not satisfied with the head--which is just an orb with no face. It's far more challenging to create successful female faces at this scale, and I've only done one successfully thus far (but it's hush hush on that for now). Male heads however...damn, you'll be shocked next year folks. Just saying. It has to do with the fact that female Brick-faces need to be rounded as opposed to squared, which works for males--but rounded is far more challenging at this size. Wasp's scale is also ironically slightly larger that what I want (her legs seem overly long in person, not so much in this image).

 

Also the obvious part usage is very obvious; but those wings were screaming for someone to do this!
