About this creation
LINK to the MOCathalon group LINK to the TSG group.
I chose instead of making a sci-fi item from a book or movie, I decided to take it to the internet and recreate an object from an internet game called Test Subject Blue made my Nitrome. I recreated the Blue enzyme from the game, who you control to make it through these tests a scientist puts you in.
Here's a small-ish reference pic.
Sorry for the small print.
Thanks a ton to Paul Romano for mentioning I have to have a pic of me holding it, I'm really glad I hadn't added it to the MOCathalon group yet.
And for an extra little something, I made a quick build of the syringe with which the scientist squeezes Blue into his suit.
Well, that concludes that, I had a TON of trouble thinking up what to make (yet again). So much that I can make a list of the ideas I started to make, and then threw out.
1. Darth Vader's belt and chest controls (SW)
2. General Grievous' gun (SW)
3. A clone trooper's gun (SW)
4. The key from the book "Incarceron"
When I look back on it, it doesn't actually seem that much, but it was quite a hassle.
Since there are only three days left of the MOCathalon, I'm not sure whether I can squeeze in one last build along with school. So this may be my last entry to this fabulous event.
If this is my last entry, I would like to say thanks to the judges for working hard to judge every single freaking entry.I'm grateful to my team for being kind, supportive and inspiring to one another throughout the whole month. And most of all, thanks to Chris, who set this whole thing up.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this creation.
Fabulous work, Alex! I've always loved Nitrome games; I think their art style is fantastic! As a side note, don't you have to include a shot of you holding the creation? I could be wrong, though. Either way, great work, and I hope you and your team get rave scores! :)
