MocOlympics Round 4: Sir Balamorgineas vs Tyler Halliwell
Sherlock Holmes: Everyone's favorite consulting detective got a Legoification in the Minifigure Series 5. Build a scene featuring the famous intellectual. You needn't use the series minifig, and your version of Holmes might be inspired by Doyle's stories, Basil Rathbone, Benedict Cumberbatch, or by Robert Downey Jr. Does he solve the case? You do not need to build an entire mystery/story, a simple vig or dio will do.
About this creation
For the 2012 Mocolympics.
I am competing against Tyler Halliwell

"My dear Watson
I write these few lines through the curtesy of Mr. Moriarty, who awaits my convenience for the final discussion of those questions which lie between us. he has been giving me a sketch of the methods by which he avoided the English police and kept himself informed of our movements.. They certainly confirm the high opinion which I had formed of his abilities. I am pleased to think that I shall be able to free society from any further effects of his presence, though I fear that it is at a cost which will give pain to my friends and especially, my dear Watson to you."


"I have already explained to you, however, that my career had in any case reached its crises, and that no possible conclusion to it could be more congenial to me than this. Indeed, if I may make a full confession to you, I was quite convinced that the letter from Meiringen was a hoax, and I allowed you to depart on that errand under the persuasion that some development of this sort would follow. Tell Inspector Patterson that the papers which he needs to convict the gang are in pigeonhole M., done up in a blue envelope and inscribed "Moriarty." I made every disposition of my property before leaving England and handed it to my brother Mycroft. Pray give my greetings to Mrs. Watson, and believe me to be, my dear fellow,
Very Sincerly yours,
Sherlock Holmes."

From "The Final Problem" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle



For this round, I decided to build the death of Sherlock Holmes at Reichenbach Falls. It was the most memorable scene from my brief experience with the stories and waterfalls are always impressive to do in Lego. I love the layered look of my technique and I hope you do too. I know Tyler will rise to the challenge and I can't wait to see what he'll come up with.
I was going to make the falls bigger, but I actually ran out of pieces. As it was, I had to break up all of my creations that had a substantial amount of light grey 2x2 rounds. It's a hard world we live in.




Soli Deo Gloria

When I first noticed the thumbnail I was blown away by how realistic the water looked. So I had to see how you did it, and I must say you did a fantastic job man!

I've never seen that waterfall technique before and it's really effective, especially in the large-scale shots. Fantastic rendition of an iconic scene, and well done on progressing to Round 5!

Well I'm glad this round has already been decided as I like both you and Balamorgineas' entries equally for different reasons: his had action and yours told a story. So I'm giving my vote to both of you ;)

Thanks, George. You are a very agreeable opponent. I'll make you proud, or maybe I won't.

I'm a big fan of Holmes and I love the epic scale you've achieved here. I would love to see some variation in the colours of those 2x2 rounds but the technique is excellent and well used. Congratulations on advancing and good luck!

Thanks all of you. Your encouragement is appreciated.
Quoting Cody G Excellent work on that waterfall! This was a close one, but the original technique used earned you my vote.
Thanks Cody. I'll keep working on building the total package and not just relying on creative techniques. If I make it to the next round.
Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent waterfall! I'm not a fan of using those 2x2 rounds like that, because they're so fragile and break apart on me! Here you've shown your mastery of the technique! BRAVO! Good luck with the judges!
Thanks, Heath. It took a while but once you figure out what not to do, they can hold up pretty good. I probably have the most experience of anyone in snapping 2x2s together.
Quoting David Alexander Smith Those rounds are your secret weapon, I see the sheer volume of those pieces turn up in a lot of your builds. Out of interest when did you get so many of those pieces?
Quoting Tom Remy Very good build, and the waterfall technique really works! How many light grey 2x2 round plates do you have?
I got them at Brickcon 2009. I paid about $15 for about 2400. Best buy I ever made.
Quoting Zabou =) The idea for the theme is very original and I LOVE your technique for the waterfall, it gives some moves and that's very accurate! Good luck with your judges! Ps: I've got an AFOL who still in the race. Can you find who he is? You've some clues on my page...=)
Hmm.. I guess Tom Remy.

Now that my entry is completed and posted, I can finally comment on yours. This is fantastic. I shied away from the Reichenbach falls, as they were done a few times I think in another contest, but you certainly made the most of them here. The gray is wondrous as water, as many have said, and the fig posing is very realistic. This could get interesting.

The work on he water with those grey rounds is excellent. I love the use of depth at the top of the waterfall to create the effect of current. Those rounds are your secret weapon, I see the sheer volume of those pieces turn up in a lot of your builds. Out of interest whet did you get so many of those pieces?

The texture of your waterfall is incredible. I don't know if some variation in the colour would improve the texture or just be distracting. Alpine rivers are often grey and silty, so I think grey being the main colour works well.

The water technique is brilliant, although a bit too grey for my taste. The whole thing is excellent, just a bit lacking in color. (Unless that was intentional?)

Breath-taking! While anyone else would tire me with their heavy use of one part, you just keep coming up with more and more interesting ideas. This waterfall is one of the best I've seen, the technique is perfect for this scale and scene. Amazing work, and best of luck!
