Hello everyone and thank you for viewing my latest model.This is my entry for the Christmas Contest 2012. You can find the group here. A family is decorating for Christmas. The tree design is inspired by Mark Ericksons ingenious work.
The boy is unpacking stockings while the girl is holding a box of wreaths.
Their father is stringing the tree with lights and ornaments
Here you can see my figures and decorations. In case you were wondering, the gift was not in the model, but I liked the design and wanted to include it. The boom box is, naturally, for listening to Christmas music while they decorate.
Thanks for participating in the Christmas Contest! 3/5 for originality/creativity - a nice idea of a familiar part of the Christmas season! 7/10 for build quality. The floor is great, and I like your idea for the stockings! Mark Erickson's work is definitely worth imitating, but I don't think you quite captured the natural look of his trees. 4/5 for presentation. The photos are clear, and the background is clean; perhaps you could make them just a tad brighter! Total score = 14/20. Nice job!
3/5 for creativity. A fairly generic scene, but some nice techniques. 7/10 for build. Effective use of the tree, though I think it could have been refined a bit. I like the base, really good choice of colour. Some cool stuff going on with the decorations as well, though it would have been nice to see a fireplace with the stockings hanging from it, or some other details to fill up empty space at the back. 4/5 for presentation. Good clear photos, though better lighting would be nice. Total: 14/20 Nice work, I just wish that you'd have added a bit more of your own spin to it. All the best in the new year!
A lovely build! 3/5 for creativity, it is kinda of original. 9/10 for build, the floor and tree is well done! 4/5 for presentation. A cleaner, white background would have scored more points. All in all, 16/20! Amazing job!
