Building in the category Whateverscape, bracket 1C...
About this creation
And obviously, I chose landscape from all the many...scapes. More specifically, seasidescape. Yeah I know, it's almost as messed up as Donald Trump's haircut. But not that bad.






Think about it. Who wears blond Elvis hair? (And that's excluding Kelso in 1978.)





I mean, that's more awkward than Michel Jackson in a hot pink Lamborghini. Or Arnold Swarchenegger with Mick Jagger's voice. That would be creepy. Better yet, the voice of Boston's lead singer. I don't know his name, but he can go higher than Chris Phipson breathing helium while singing Eye of the Tiger.














Anywhoo, here's my entry for Round 2. Not much, but I really enjoyed the process. It's hard to ETP while working with smooth tiles that are a royal pain in the rear to get off a baseplate, but I did. Mostly.














I kinda took on that "32x32 challenge" in this MOC, altering my plan from a creation of 64x32 to what you see now. If Aliencat can do it, I can too. Okay, that's not totally true...














I tried a new and interesting idea with the tree roots here. I always see roots protruding from the ground all over the place, so I thought why not put it into Lego? If you're asking, yes, that is how I think all the time. That's how I got the idea to make a vein of rocks winding through this scene as well. I saw it while climbing a local mountain, and BOOM! It came to life...er, Lego.













Living in Washington is great inspiration for all types of art, including everything from drawing and writing to Lego as we have here. How do you think Mark Kelso got so good at painting? Hiking in the Northwest of course. =)









My opponent's homepage is here.













Well, that's all for now. Remember to ETP!

I chose VERY GOOD, although were the sand meets the grass you might want to put some brown there for more affect. other then that it's a very good MOC!

I've never seen any body else do that birds nest idea. Great job on the tree roots. You could check out my page if you wanted to see my uses of the nest

I am sure your opponent really dropped out out of fear. He knew that he was going to be completely humiliated by this fine build. Love the tree and the rock work. Lee.

VERY nicely done, JD. Love the composition and the flow of the forms. But don't think that little comment about my art is going to make up for the Elvis jab there, pal. I'll have you know that wig looked uber-sexy with my satin shirt, gold necklace, and polyester bell-bottoms!

Lead singer for Boston? The late Brad Delp. The creation? Great! The thought of Phipson singing anything? Horrifying (because he'd insist on performing sans pants).

Quoting Sebeus I btw, where did you get those dark tan 1x2 plates ?
I got them from the castle village set, but I'm sure BrickLink has 'em by the pound.

I like everything incorporated; all yer techniques, however, I'd like to see the water around the stone point whiter, at least on the front if you have to raise it a stud; in which case, I would suggest the back to be blue. (run on sentences ftl)

Beauty, eh. That's what Doug McKenzie would say if he was there. Carefull on the beach though. Don't get crabs! I'm surprised Phipson hasn't been here and made that joke already. Maybe he's busy. GL! see ya. garth

This is a serene scene JD. The trans-blue water is sooo nice, I've had a beach scene in mind for a while but I'd have to purchase way many of those spendy trans-blue parts but it's great to see other people building with them. Overall niceness, nothing to complain about. Your opponent is going to have a lot to live up to.

Oh wow! Oh, and if you were wondering, I'm dropping out for my own reasons. So you could have posted a blurry picture of a pink 1x1 stud on a table and still won. Does that make you feel better? Oh, and say that I'm dropping out in the Drop Out topic in the group. See ya around, LSB.
