Hey everybody, here is my entry for the contest. My category is a "day at the park?-- Build us a playground... but not your typical playground. Show us what your warped, twisted mind can come up with."
About this creation
My worthy opponent is Wes Pitter
And here is the link to the Homepage
Now on to the build!
When I saw my category I immediately thought about doing something really evil looking, and I think I succeeded.
This moc is pretty self explanatory, bloody guy with no head, death, hand/tree, and a big bone yard.
I am really happy with the tree. I was going to do a normal tree but it wasn't enough so I turned that tree into a giant hand reaching out of the ground, and it looked creepy, so I'm happy. :D
All the blood might be a little bit too much, does anyone think that I should put a warning on?
Finally we get to death himself I wanted him to look different from normal skeletons so he got extra long arms and legs. You might not be able to tell but his head is actually a black fez, not a mini fig head. It makes him look more skeletal since it is smaller.
Very nice work. I love the posing and texture on the claw/ tree, I think it's a huge challenge to get an organic look with bricks and plates and you've worked it really well. Love the long-limbed Reaper too. Bad luck on not advancing but great job!
This was another close one for me, but I've also given my vote to Wes. It was the powerful vertical composition of his piece that really put it over the top for me. Still, I think this was a terrific entry. A fun concept for the category. Love that claw in particular. Sorry to see ya hit the showers, but you put up a good fight in this round. Nice work!
Isaiah, Wow, you've really created something beautiful here (which is a testament to your skill in a twisted category). I really love all the texture you've created. In the end, my vote went to your opponent because of all the playground elements he included. Thank you for sharing your version of the category. ~Dave
