Well, if you always just posted computer generated images you'd miss a ton of opportunities. Laziness, well, you're too lazy to find the parts and construct something.
Many times, when building a creation or replicating something you've seen, you often find that you don't have the right parts. You then proceed to imagine a way to make it look similar to what your recreating or what you've envisioned, and then proceed to find new, inventive ways to do so. Sometimes it stops there, sometimes it doesn't. You might then realize that this part looks really stupid, and suddenly, that alot
of it seems oddly made. You then have a new idea for something more creative, more original, made by you, and now have the knowledge and experience on how to create new effects or structures. Thus, taking the shortcut blinds you to all these experiences, as well as ends up looking worse than it would when built of your own blood, sweat, tears and pieces. The first three are optional of course.
1. I did not miss oppourtunities. I never have BrikWars battles, so there is no oppourtunity to be missed.
2. I am not 'lazy'. I simply do not own the parts. I have zero wheels, and zero window things. I also have zero things to attach the wheels to the chassis with. This would be a pretty poor Jeep.
3. This could exist. I could order the parts, theoretically. You could, if you wanted to. Anyone could, provided LEGO has a way to ship the parts to them.
4. This is exactly what I wanted to build. I actually took your suggestion before you suggested it, and did not take shortcuts. I have no idea how you came to the conclusion that I took shortcuts, but I can assure you that this vehicle would pass the LEGO safety standards.
5. I have experiences. I actually built two other Jeeps, which are worse. There is also no way I could have made this better with my available selection of pieces unless I had wheels, a window, green cylinders, modern minifigs, &c.
