Kelso,

Have you ever taken your Legos into the bathtub with you? If so, for what purpose?


Do you really need to know?

A more accurate question would be:
"Dave, what did your dad once do while drunk out of his skull that made you decide you wanted to ask what Kelso does in his tub?"

or maybe:
"What are you doing on mocpages stoned out of your gourd and asking questions you KNOW have mentally damaging answers? Surely you can find something else to do like gaze at the ceiling and mumble something about pretty colours?"

Doesn't that sound like a 70's TV series? " Tonight, on Phippy and Bones: The discovery of several skeletons in Phippy's closet causes suspicion and mistrust between the two defectives.

Sellers wanted too much money, and Neilson wasn't back in the limelight yet. But, fear not; Bones was the serious one and Phippy the comedy relief. Neilson hadn't gone cuckoo yet (if that word is PC.) Or, was it the other way around? Hmmmm.

I was SO mad about the MOCathalon. I was going to join, but my computer took a high dive. When it was 1 week later, my computer worked again, and I couldn't compete. Lucky me. You remember Master Shifu.


Yup. It's unfortunate your computer went down at the wrong time. I think the consensus was to get a replacement instead of only competing with four members. However, things like this happen. During the MOC Olympics, my camera died in round two. I almost was not able to post and would have meant a DQ. I was lucky enough to find someone with camera. My pictures were somewhat blurry, but did the best of what I have. Sometimes equipment failure is unavoidable especially where there isn't any backup equipment. I surely do not have an extra camera.

No point of getting mad. It's just wasted energy. As disappointing as it is for you, I think there will be plenty of opportunities in the future. Lots of contests are going on every time. MOC Olympics and MOC-athalon is so popular I'm sure there will be more in the future.

Suggestion: Do you have any plain pictures in your house? Something with just color that you could use as a background? I do that a lot. Or: Go to an art supply store and get a white canvas, they come with frames that are hidden under the canvas, they are much easier to use than bedsheets. Just some thoughts. Cheers.

Here are some tips you might consider:

1) When draping a sheet over something, be sure that item is straight and completely flat (like a very large cardboard box, or a long 2 x 4). This will allow you to hang the sheet without wrinkles showing, which is the primary reason sheets don't usually look all that great as a drop.

2) Use the sheet as the underlying portion of your MOC as well as the backdrop. This will provide a single consistent color and texture for your background (compared to the sheet being the backdrop only, and some other color or texture for the flat surface). Again, try to eliminate ALL wrinkles.

3) Try to create some space between your MOC and the vertical portion of the sheet. The further your MOC is from it's background, the more out-of-focus the background will appear. This will help to soften your background and keep the viewer's eye on the MOC itself. If you know how to adjust the aperture of your camera, then you can manually cause the backdrop to go more out of focus. But if you don't have the means to adjust aperture, by distancing your MOC from the vertical part of the drop, some blur will still occur.

In the long run, there's really no competing with what a photo editing software can accomplish. But taking those steps above will certainly help with presentation.

Good Luck!

3. You can delete groups you realize.
4. You also can leave groups. Your list doesn't have to be that long. My list was really long a while back, but I worked on leaving groups and now it is manageable.
5. A postbox is NOT a creation, which means it is NOT a MOC, which means it SHOULD NOT be uploaded as a MOC. Groups can take care of the function of postboxes.

In regards to the Postboxes: I'll talk with Phipson to see how he's handled these. Although I'm guessing you guys could tell me, from the sound of it, I'll talk with him directly to be certain. (This is the first one that's been brought to my attention and Chris has probably been the one dealing with these up until now).

My immediate stance on it would be to delete it. While it does have Lego images on the page, it's INTENT (which, to me, appears to be for general conversation) is not what this site's pages were designed for. They were designed to show off Lego creations or events, and allow visitors to comment. That's it.

Conversation is why the groups were created. The group thing is a work in progress, and flawed, yes...but nevertheless, that's the option we have now for conversation.

So let's sit tight for the moment. I'll deliberate with my fellow Mod, and then get back with you. This one walks a very fine line, and I want to be sure that Chris and I are in sync with one another as to how we approach this.

Wow, VERY nice. A different approach this time! I'll say right off the bat, that I love the composition of the upper half. The white contrasts nicely with the rest of the MOC, and the curving lines are wonderful.

I think the bottom portion of the MOC is a bit busy visually...that is to say, has too much going on. Also, given the lack of studs elsewhere in all but the greenery, I feel like the base should be completely free of studs as well (for more consistency throughout).

Nevertheless, the lighter value of the white elements draws the eye back up to the top, and continues to pull the viewer's attention that way with the upward spiral. That, compounded by the most color being with your main subject, and you've got a vig that's not only visually strong, but conceptually powerful as well. Simplify the lower portion just a bit, and lose the studs at the bottom, and you're looking at near perfection, if you ask me!Terrific work!

That's completely your call.

If you're considering tearing it down because you need more parts, then sure, why not? MOCpages is great because we can not only share our creations, but it allows us to keep a portfolio of sorts, of our work. So you've got a record of having built this ship, and Lego is all about using and reusing. So personally I'd go for it. But again, it's YOUR creation, and you're the one who gets to decide when it's time to recycle. ;)

Not bad, Matthew. I actually like the image without any of the figs best. The reason why, is that without the figs, the MOC becomes less busy. I think you might have a bit too much going on with them, and no focal point (which is similar to what Nannan was mentioning). If you want to include that many figs, I might suggest making the dio a bit larger (assuming you have enough parts to do so), and allow for a little space between some of the figures. This will make it seem less crowded, more natural, and allow the viewer a bit of visual breathing room.

By the way, nice work on the concept!

While the approach with artists from Africa, South America, England, the US, etc. had a lot of similarities, these guys were doing incredible stuff the likes of which we'd never seen before. And likewise, because they had been limited to their own influences, they were stunned with what we were doing. Both sides were in complete admiration and awe of the other's skills and perspectives.

Mr. Kelso, I have alerted a few people about postboxes, comment boxes, and mailboxes. One person in particular has a few questions about the rules. He made a topic in MocPages Help topic. Just thought I would let you know. It would help if you could answer his questions.

OH! And another one bites the dust! Welcome to hell, Bones.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for this addiction. The closest we've ever come was a builder who once had the notion of getting clean and helping others to do the same. He instated a twelve-step, anti-cracklink program with weekly meetings and a complex support system...

we beat him up and stole his Lego!

$25.00 for two???? Are they made of gold or what???? I would pay $0.25 for them.


Some of them ARE gold, actually (gold chrome). But yeah, at the prices we pay, I have to wonder how many figs are responsible for grandma's hocked jewelry?

Currnet BL price for a gold chrome C-3PO from ACME Industries...$336.33 US.

that's something I'd love to see on "1000 ways to die". Actually, no. No, I wouldn't; that would be disturbing.

What is this thread for again? Oh yeah! Ask Kelso. Hey do you hit up the larger national art shows with your work? Or are you one of those artists who sneers at such a thing?

Well on his "Inferno"-esque trip to the afterlife, he met some of the Renaissance artists...

I sneer at them and THEN hit them.

Actually, I do a fair number of annual exhibitions that are considered national and international shows. They're some of the best ones I do for picking up new clients, and both the quality of art and sales can be pretty staggering sometimes (particularly the Western Art shows). The ones I stay away from are the street fair types. I've tried a few, and they turned out to be the worst ideas I've had since that threesome with the toothless midget and Lee Jones!
