The first collection of random doodles, attempts, failures, and unworthies.
I've had so much junk layin' around, I really just needed to do something with them. Also, I promised my cousins I'd post a few of their things they built Sunday. So, here's a medley of vignettes and scenes I've built over the past few months that failed to gain the spotlight!
So, first off, last Sunday me, my little bro Lar, and my cousin Braeden had a Moc-Off of sorts, with my family acting as judges. We each made two scenes, and they were judged on a score of one to five.
My first entry into the contest, a Western showdown. The winner! Score was a 27/30
I love that bandito. He may be my new sig-fig!
My next entry, forest explorer. I know, lame, but it's in my new favorite theme, Castle Landscape! Sorry about the blurry picture.
I like some techniques used here, like the roots and ripple on the water. I used as many bamboo plants as I could.
My brother Lar's first entry, dubbed, "Assault By The Creek". This would fit nicely into Mr. Bones' Halloween contest.
Eeek! Creepy stalker with a sword!
Cousinkins's first entry, called "The Impending Showdown". This could be the start of a great movie.
Eeek! Creepy skeleton with a mace!
That's it for the contest. My cousin's other entry met it's end soon after judging, and my brother's other entry was really neat, but I forgot to take a picture of it. Dang!
This was... well... I don't know what it was. It had a cool story, though, I bet a v2 will come to life.
Oh noes! Fire!
This was where the main story was. A nice, white, conference room.
This is the one project that will be finished. Another Castle Landscape.
This was an excuse to go landscaping again, but I developed two new techniques! That tree, with is triangular and slanted just like a real evergreen...
And my happy happy fun water! There are all sorts of cool things you can do with blue trans-dots. Even the plates underneath have an effect. It's really fun to fool around with light and dark colors. Feels like something out of art class.
Some water detail, my favorite technique. I know it isn't new, but I came up with it by mashelf. Yayz!
My attempt at a more "artistic" vignette. Very spooky-ish.
A quick view at my collection, pre-sorting. Sorting in progress right now. about 1000+ pieces already!
This literally took me 5 minutes to build, and should be pretty self-explanitory.
And to cap it off, another li'l project of mine. This literally used half of my orange plates. Sad, eh? This had a funny backstory, too, although there's only one fig on it.
Whew! That was a long post! And now, I take a break from building for a little while to sort and plan. So, Espen sayin' sayonara!
