WE ARE GROOT

This was a risky build, doing a. Scratch build for a company on a tight timeline...whoa.

So the case us aluminum bones and acrylic skin.

*****EXPLANATION OF BUILD******
the build represents the Dark Aster, the "Groot Sacrifice scene" and the wiring is to represent GROOT holding the build together as well as powering the system.
**************************************

this build was an undertaking but i couldnt be happier with the results...

The build was wild from the start, not having a clue on how to go about doing a scratch build. Then having to figure the most effective way of actually ensuring everything made sense and worked cohesivlely was a challenge. What you dont see is inside the frame is 1/2" clear acylic, used to hold the rgb, but also to give more rigidity and weight to the case itself.

I searched on Ebay for about a week or 2, for the "Perfect" looking groot. And as i expected...many looked to fake, toy-ish, and didnt give off a real vibe...one that with pics would bring life to the build...i just happened to stumble across the Groot i ended up using...and lucked put grabbing him.

Then learning how to weave a basket so it looked like it was coming from groot, but not cheesy or "just placed" there wasnt fun. I ended u making a few different forms til i figured out what tf i was actually doing lol.
