MocOlympics Round 1: Earth
My entry for the MocOlympics round 1. Category: Earth!
About this creation
For round 1 of the MocOlympics, I have decided to make a creation in the category: Earth!
My entry is, as you can probably tell, a Floating Rock! My floating rock is like a little piece of Earth, but floating!!

The absolutely, positively, no doubt about it, completely needed link: MocOlympics 2011!

Onto the photos!


The waterfall. Me like!


Bird of my own design, I think it's pretty cool!


The tree. Due to the rock slowly breaking, half of the roots are now exposed. I don't think the tree will last long, but hey, it is a floating rock, right?


The roots of the tree.


Fish jumping out of the little stream.


There's something hiding in the grass!


Another pic of it all.

4th Wall commentary (or whatever you call it):
This build was really fun to make, and I rather enjoyed trying to figure out what to do for the categories in the M.O's, because it practically gave you ANY creative options! I ended up doing a floating rock, because I had been wanting to do one for a while now, and Earth was the perfect category for it!

There are 4 creatures in this creation. Can you find them all?

Well that's all. Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoyed it!

-Adam

While I'm not going to comment on the "reasoning" as much as Dave (he's right though) I think it just should have had a little "more" to it. I know parts issues play a big role but I think taking it bigger would have really helped. I really liked the build and think you should really try this theme (floating rocks) again! Thanks for playing! ~ Chris.

Floating rocks are very popular, but yours has a nice shape. The addition of the bird was a clever touch. Good work.

Adam, The floating rock was certainly a good idea, and you had a lot of interesting elements to enhance the idea. I would have liked to see more thought put into these details; where would a waterfall on a floating rock come from? The roots were a nice touch, but what direction would a tree grow in such an environment? Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave

Quoting Adrian Lerxt Like I said in chat the other day, the bird is great, the waterfall is great, but you could have done more with the tree roots. Although its nothing new in the world of flying rocks, this should be enough to get you to round 2. Nice job and good luck!
Thanks Adrian!
