Animals

Who doesn't love animals? There's so many great ones, but I've built a few of them in various scales over the years. Note: this page does not include dinosaurs, see the "Dinosaurs" page for those.

Ostwrench

May 2020

Inspiration: I built this for Iron Forge Round 2, seed part wrench/hammer, hence the name. The design was based off of Ostriches, Miles from Tomorrowland, Kevin from UP

I gave this model to my mom for Mother's day

Elephant Wall Hanging

April 2019

Inspiration: New Elementary's Build and Fix contest, I feel like this is one of my most "artful " pieces as it uses nearly entirely slopes and wing plates.

Griffin

January 2021

Inspiration: The banana seed part looks like claws or a beak, so I thought I may as well use it as both in a model of a griffin for Iron Forge Round 2. I used grey ones in the tail for good measure. It's a stretch putting it in the animal category, but it seemed most fitting.

Turtle

March 2020

Inspiration: I built this for a friend who requested that I build a turtle. They were disappointed that I didn't build a 3d Turtle. Oh well, whatcha gonna do. Based on things that came up when I searched for "turtle art."

Ostriches

January 2021

Inspiration: Iron Forge Round 1 had me racking my brain for ways to use the minifigure body, but one of the cool ways was as a connection point for one of the more interesting minifigure arms: a chicken suit wing. Such was the inspiration for these tiny flightless birds.
