Tracing Through the Snow. . .

Tracer is one of the iconic characters to be created in the 2016 game Overwatch (and is one of the few I am somewhat familiar with).  I am a sucker for good character builds, which is exactly what Nick Brick has done today!  The colors used on this character are very cool and pleasing to the eyes.  Good color schemes can really draw you into a build.  As weird as it may be, I think the pants are my favorite part, which were executed well without making them too boxy, and they lead into Tracer's hips without a large gap.  Another impressive part of this build is that it's viewable from all sides, which is not something you see with every character build.  Nice job, Nick!  Looking forward to more of these builds from you.

Nathaniel Stoner

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
