Massive McDonald's Ball Pit by alanbecker Massive McDonald's Ball Pit by alanbecker
I've always dreamed of jumping off a diving board into the world's biggest ball pit. Unfortunately, not only did they take ball pits out of McDonald's Play Places, I'm too old to play in them.

This assignment was to create an appealing composition using several mannequins.

first one is in micron pen, second one is gray colored pencil.

I once got lost in the McDonald's Play Place. You know that loft-like thing wit all the tubes and a slide? Well, I got lost in the tubes. (It was HUGE. not kidding) That was the day I found out that I was clausterphobic. Yay, me.

Because of the help extended by Replica Men Watch , the victim was later identified to be Ronald Joseph Platt. His Rolex Oyster Perpetual Chronometer was manufactured in Geneva in 1967 and he took it for servicing in 1977, 1982 and 1986. The identification of the body was confirmed later on by a man who came forward as Platt's friend, David Davis.

when i was a child i loved the ball pit :dummy:
not just because it was fun, but because there were a lot of objects people lost in it
some toys from cereal boxes, plastic rings, things girl puts in their hair (i don't know what's the word in english xD)
i think i still have one of the plastic rings i found there.....

yeah and little kids peed and pooped in it all the time, one of the reasons they got rid of those things is how unsanitary they are

Yea, I think kids used to leave steaming "presents" in those things. Awesome piece though. All it needs is a gigantic slip-and-slide next door, hehe.

Wow, amazing.
We're doing a similar project in my art class, but the mannequins suggest movement without props, with simple lighting in the background instead of detail. With pastels. :)
I like how tiny everything looks up above. Nice perspective.
