Work In Progress

Postby Tzan » Mon Apr 16, 2012 10:13 am

Just thought I would post my WIP, now that we all know what that means.

This will eventually be a 1:1 scale model of the earth.
Not quite there yet, but very close.
I do like working at a monumental scale.

I'm incredibly impressed with how you've done Abu Dhabi, looks almost exactly like the original. And it doesn't take an artist to appreciate how much detail you've put into Homs, the war torn state of the city is brilliantly conveyed. The European continent looks a little abstract, particularly the giant Piltogg statue, but that can be put down to artistic license.

If you zoom in on the picture, you can see my house!

This looks incredible, but my only concern is storage. Will you just sent it into space, or will you just keep it on Earth to bulk up the planet a little?

I wouldn't want to scare the humans, so I would park this in orbit around the sun.
Placed directly opposite to the earth, on the other side of the sun, you couldn't see it from here.

I watched the series 'Shadow Raiders', which was based on this. It was fucking amazing and epic :man: mainframe studios ruled the nineties.

Okay, the thread can go back to its normal flow now.

Oh man, my neighbors had all those connector bits so you could put the planets together and it looked AWESOME.

I had ice and fire planets and moons for both. My cousin had bone planet. Many battles ensued! Gosh I miss those toys.

I remember Battle Planets...
Never got any because I think they were hella expensive, but I did have the Might Max Dragon Skull Island, the Ninja Turtle Mini sets, and a few cheapo grocery store miniature play-sets...

Honestly the cheapo grocery store ones were probably the best, one was a pirate ship with working pullback cannons and the other a castle.
The ship came with five or six dime-sized pirates while the castle had two sets of five knights, and both came with little weapons you could stick into their hands.
Many a pirate verses knight battles were had!

Yeah, nowadays they wouldn't dare make anything as awesome due to stupid kids "choking" on the parts...

Hah, I recall some (in hindsight) rofltastic stuff that happened when I was a young child, namely a cool uncle gave me one of those hollywood prop swords that fold in when you stab things with them and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to bring one to school.

When questioned by the principle i just started talking the biggest line of shit possible, and kept it up all the way till my parents arrived.
