"There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don't expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few... Who possess, the predisposition... I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." ~Professor Severus Snape
About this creation
My contribution to the Brick Time Stories collaboration at Brickworld 2015, in which Harry Potter endures a grueling period of Potions in Snape's dungeon. I collaborated in cahoots with builders Max Pointner, Paul Vermeesch, Dan Church, Casey McCoy, Lee Muzzy, Matthew Oh, and Ben Merrill. Be sure to follow the links below for a taste of the full collaboration!
Superior! Great brick-built figures (Snape's posture!), cool layout, and the presentation as an open book is both inspired and incredibly well-executed (although a bit thin for an HP book...but then again the first two were quite slim compared to the later ones). Overall a great MOC, love how you did Harry's tie, btw!
Nice tiling, Ian! The collab looks great this year, and I really am sad I couldn't make it this year to come say hi and see this in person. It is neat that you guys used so many different scales. Anyways keep up the good bricking!
Such fun and quirky figures, I love it! I've not seen this style before, it reminds me of some of the illustrations on the children's version covers of Harry Potter. Love Harry in particular, but Snape's hair is perfect. Great work Ian, wish I could've seen this in person.
Uh, YUP, this is amazing, i need one, i need more! Ian this is outstanding, super inspiring build, it is so seamless and clean looking. The whole project you guys built together is unreal. Well done sir.
