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.
Build Time: a few hours
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."
Build Time: 2 hours
"Jay Jay" Puppy
Inspiration: A friend asked me to build her dog, Jay Jay, and it was very very cute, so I obliged. Check out my instagram for photos of her actual dog, thank me later.
Build Time: 3 days
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.
Build Time: Two days
