About this creation
MocOlympics Round 4
Link to opponents EPIC entry.

When I first learned of my category, I decided to take a lighter approach than building what judgement will actually be like. As a Christian, like my opponent seems to be, I know that Hell will be exactly as the Bible describes it. However, I know that Christ has saved me, and while it is an important subject, I prefer not to build something along those lines. SO, I decided to build a cheesy Minifig Hell where bad minifigs are punished with sharpies, erasers, and blowtorches. Not only was this fun to build, but it gave me a chance to display my moving waterfall technique that I developed some time ago. Please watch this demonstrative video:




The river of Lava!


A clone being sharpied by a demon.


Phipson being erased by another demon. Sorry Phipson! I couldn't resist.


The nazgul-esque mech.


The falls again. Inspired by Lee Muzzy's Mustifarian lavafall.


The blow torch! This was SOO FUN to build!


Here it is again with the pencil stub. The stub looks so real that my Grandpa actually tried to right with it when I gave it to him. When nothing happened, he figured out that it was all ABS plastic.


The pocket knife.


Comparison between a real sharpie and my brick built one.


The Raven MECH from the front. This was the hardest part of the entry. It was difficult getting the legs strong enough to hold the body, arms, and torture instruments.


The driver demon.


The back of the Raven.

A final shot of the whole entry. Best of luck to Mark and judges!

Soli Deo Gloria!

I think this was a great build and you were unlucky not to move on! Particularly impressive is the way you've combined 3 different styles of build - landscape, mech and life-size objects - and they're all stud-perfect. Oh, and I agree with you - it would be impossible to capture in Lego just how horrible the real place (state of being?) is. So good choice on how to tackle the category!

While my input at this point won't make much impact, I'm going to toss my two cents in anyway. For me, this came down judging based on presentation. Mark's build was solid, and the techniques used with both the landscape and the characters were impressive, but the feeling generated by the MOC was largely due to the way it was delivered. Your creation, on the other hand, not only combines functionality with comedy and clever techniques, but it isn't as reliant on that non-Lego thing we call light. My vote goes to you. You've played well, and it's a pity you won't be moving on.

Man, this is creepy as all get out! I love it! The devices look incredibly realistic and together with the moving waterfall make a mind-blowing entry. Fantastic job!

Commiserations on not advancing Max, I think this is a great entry. The lavafall is a very clever technique, the sharpie and pencil look superb and the mech is really nice and unusual. Coupled with great presentation, I think you can be proud of your build.

AWESOME! Nice demons and brilliant lava! It's great to see that you've come so far! Good luck.

This was a really though one to judge, while your opponent had a fantastic presentation you have included a fantastic power function, that lava stream is awesome, your opponent has my vote, but it was close Great job (btw, I really thought that sharpie wasn't lego until you compared it with a real one)

Quoting Cody G How come nobody puts any of the other judges in their entries? Phipson gets all the fun...

That was funny! And a great take on the category. And while I appreciate the humor (Hey, this IS me we're talking about) I think your opponent beat you out on this one. Good luck with your other judges! ~ Chris.

Quoting David . The only thing that bugged me was the lime green pieces in the lava. :(
There are actually no green pieces in the falls. The video camera may have portrayed the yellow and trans yellow plates as green. Thanks for your comment!

Very funny! I love the fact that you both took different ways to interpret the category... And both are good! Your pens and other props are excellent, and I like your lava fall. Good luck!

Wow! Two Christians forced to create He//? What are the odds of that? Great interpretation. I don't know which I like more. Mark's has some realistic qualities, but yours has the whimsy and functionality. I'm glad I'm not a judge, this wouls be so hard for me to choose. Really awesome work.

Wow, a bit of an understatement for me. But I just want to watch that video over and OVER again just to see that TOTALLY EPIC lava-fall! The only thing that bugged me was the lime green pieces in the lava. :( Man, it's a close-call, but I truly sympathize for the judges, I would pay someone else to judge if I's in their shoes. Good luck!

Quoting Matthew Oh Wow Mark....I am stunned.... This is totally breathtaking! The sharpie, pencil, blowtorch, and pocket-knife ate amazing! They look so realistic!
Are you getting me and my opponent mixed up? Just wondering. ;)
Quoting Mark Erickson By the way, I am definitely a Christian, glad you are too buddy! :)
I thought so. The Romans passage wasn't a dead give away, the worship music at the end of your film certainly was! ;)
Quoting Tyler Halliwell Your opponent's entry was awesome, but this takes the cake. What a great idea and execution. Were I a judge, I'd have to go for you.
That is encouraging!
Quoting Christopher Baldacci Go Gustav Holst!
You have great taste!
