Taking his fixation on harassing helpless critters to a whole new level, the Musclebound Thug puts on his Stetson and goes for a joyride on Garmina the giraffe, who does her very best to buck the big bully off

    How do you do that? Amazing!

  2. Mikael Jansson

    This is really great!

  3. Stephen Lund

    Thanks, guys. Tom...as I was trying to decide what my Thug would do next, it occurred to me that his rear end followed the same road as Garmina's back. So I looked at combining the two routes. I had to make some adjustments to the giraffe's rear end (i.e., extend it back so that the Thug was clearly riding her and not doing something obscene!), which also impelled me to change the configuration of the back legs. Making it look like she was trying to buck him off just made sense.

    That's a really good one Steve! I like the way you added the photo of it too :)

    Amazing stuff. Must've taken a while for this one

  17. Rubia Bittencourt

    Simply perfect !!!

  18. Robert V.

    It is really beautyful, but some of the lines don't follow roads. They go straight through buildings... How did you do that?

  19. Cintia Overvåg

    Amazing!! Congratulations!!

  20. Stephen Lund

    Robert – where I run into impassable obstacles or the roads just don't cooperate, I use a technique I call ‘connecting the dots’. Pausing my Garmin at point A and restarting it at point B creates a straight line that connects the dots. I try to use it sparingly, but sometimes it's necessary.

  21. Robert V.

    Aha, that's creative! Thanks for explaining. I'll try that myself.
