Well, I've always wanted to build a cafe, ever since my sister and I used to play with multicoloured brick houses. But I have never really had the bricks to make one look good, but this category was a great excuse to build one, especially after a rather expensive shopping trip into the capital.
Another reason I choose a 30's Cafe, was because I really love Frankenstein's monster's head and the Gangsters body, so Put them together and you get, stylishly dressed monsters having an epic fight off.
I hope you liked this.
Very well, you don't have to believe me, but while I am a great fan of your entry, If I did copy yours, why is this so bad? Or rather scored so low, if I had styled mine on yours, Would it not have been better?
But I don't want to argue.
P.S what napkin holder? If you mean the thing with cheese slop, it was meant to be a spilled salt shaker.
I don't mind you borrowing my ideas at all and I don't really mind whether you credit your inspiration or not. However, I find it almost impossible to have built this without seeing mine. The entire room is configured the same, the camera angle is the same, the taps are in the same place (and not borrowed from the MOC linked to), the booth is essentially the same design and in the same location, the napkin holder is almost identical, the stools are the same, the shelves are done in the same way and in the same place and the floor is tiled similarly too. One or two similarities can be coincidence, but this many similarities is flat out impossible. That said, I like that you took my ideas and implemented them in a new way and made it your own. You also added other nice details like the radio and the can opener. I have no problem with that. Good luck.
Ladies, gentlemen and judges,
While I admit that the similarities are striking, I wish you to know, I never intended to imitate or steal his ideas and his great design.
If I may, let me tell you the main reasoning behind my build:
The main focus was to use the Gangsters suit and Frankenstein's monsters head, The fight was mainly, because a friend told me a vignette had to include some kind of action.
The build was meant to be set in a 1930's speak easy, and was meant to include a stage, that was until I discovered just how small 16 by 16 really was, so I was limited to a bar and some tables. The elements you have described as borrowed,and i can see here, were the taps, which all bars must have, were borrowed from this-http://www.flickr.com/photos/66535891@N00/2989481033/
and the bar stools, which are of a great design but remember from sometime ago.
To tell the truth, I only really saw his creation today, after he pointed it out.
Now you may just ignore this, claiming there excuse's but I would never steal or imitate another's creation, without permission or credit.
I have no wish to appear childish or immature, so I apologize To Legohaulic if he or you lot don't believe me, or still think I have stolen his ideas.
Even without reading Tyler's comments, I recognized some very striking similarities between the two creations. There is a saying, "Great artists steal" so I shall overlook that. That is between you and Tyler. Score: a solid 3
"Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different." ~ T.S. Eliot. I think it's nice to be a part of a community in which we engage in open discourse and can freely share our ideas. After all, a contest like this is for fun!
