CCR R1: Into the Unknown
Darvangast the Strong stumbles upon a peculiar structure that seems to have been crumbling for years. He climbs up the side and jumps down into the unknown.....
About this creation
This is my entry for the following two groups:


My camera doesn't take great pictures, but I'm hoping that they are getting better :D

For this MOC, the text corresponds to the picture below the text.

Note, don't read the comments until you've made your guess if you want to play find the helmet!
See if you can find this! It's a new thing I'm starting. In (most) of my MOCs, in one (yes, only one) of the pictures, Darth Vader's helmet will be hidden somewhere. (note, it is visible...at least partially)
See if you can find it! Kudos to those who find it :D
Give the number of of the picture for where you think he is (say the number that is directly above the picture where you say you've found him).


Darvangast looking past the gates.
1.



Darvangast thinks to himself "I know how to get in!"

Darvangast climbs up the wall and jumps into the unknown......

Different views of the jump.

Here is how I did the lighting for the past 3 shots. Those finger lights come in handy sometimes :D
6.



Okay, now back to the build without my Sig Fig.

7.



I really like how the brick walkway turned out using SNOT.

Here it is without the roof.

14.



I took off part of the leaning gate so you could see more of the MOC.
15.


16.



See the mud there with the transparent gray elements? The idea came from LukeClarenceVan. I just modified it with the slopes to make it like more than just the ground is wet, some of the sides are wet as well.

20.



I think this is my favorite picture :D (this is why I took off the gate and the roof; I'm able to take better photos of the ruins)
21.



What's this hiding in the corner?
22.



Nope, it's not Darth Vader's helmet :(
It's a barrel with a small jar with a golden lid.....what could this be?
23.



Here is the main photo.

Thanks for looking, God bless!

Quoting Lego Builders Sig Fig: 5/5 Very cool figure. Love all the extras that you put on him. Vignette: 7/10 Nice ruins. Love the inverted slopes used to created the crumbled parts of the walls. Great use of space. Presentation 4.5/5 Nice pictures and lighting. Personal opinion: 4.5/5 Total: 21/25 -LB Senior

Quoting Timothy Wallace Sig-Fig:5/5 it's very original, and cool. Vig:7/10 It could use a bit of work. Presentation: 5/5 Great pictures! Personal Opinion:4/5 Needs a bit of work. Overall: 21/25 Excellent score! P.S. It's in picture 17.
Ok thanks! Yeah, after looking it over, I would have (thanks to the idea from dad) had one of the pillars fallen over.

Quoting Tristan Davis Great build, David! These pictures are a lot better! Be sure to use a tripod whenever you take pics of your creations. I do!

Quoting A M Excellent tumble-down, ruined feel. Great job, and good luck!
Thanks A M!
Quoting Ryan "Ronin" Dragonslayer Excellent! I love the crumbling gate technique! Great ruins overall. Oh, and 17...or 18. Hide the helmet is a fun game.
Yeah, I'm hoping it'll keep being fun as I'll have the helmet in a number of my builds.
Quoting Felix Santosa Nice details for the looks of an abandoned building. anyway, thanks for inviting me to i Brick
Thanks! You're most welcome :)
Quoting David Alexander Smith A really nice experiment in lighting and scene setting.
Thank you!

---THE CONTEST GROUP JUDGING--- Sig Fig: 4 Okay, that's an intense Sig Fig. I would never be able to rebuild him because I don't own any of those pieces except the torso. Vignette: 7 Eh, It's okay. It's good, but also strange. It's rubble in the middle. You're lucky I read about the other contest so I knew what it's supposed to be. Presentation: 3 Okay, that's a lot of pictures just for one build. Even if we are playing a game. Personal Opinion: 3 I liked the game with the Vader helmet which was in image seventeen, but this is why we don't do these types of things with more than one contest per entry. It's just difficult to work with. 17/25 Oh, and I've seemed to misplace my cat, can you find him for me? http://mocpages.com/moc.php/330284

Quoting A Sargent Very nice creation. The hiding helmet is clever, and I lime the ruins. The columns that have fallen are a great touch! Thanks for entering, your creation is being judges now.
Sweet! I hope I make it to round 2!

Quoting David . Picture seventeen? Or eighteen... It's hard to decifer which number goes to which picture...
Yes, you are correct! It's hard to tell? It would be the number that is directly above the picture :) I didn't count the picture of just Darth Vader's head.
Quoting Takanuva 77 Awesome, this is amazing work David:)

Quoting TX-008 1998 Great build! Everybody can see Darth Vader's helmet ;)
Okay okay, I guess I made it too obvious. I already took pictures for my next MOC so Darth Vader is in it as well. I'll do another test to see if it is still too easy. We'll see :)
Quoting Justin M You've really captured that "ruined" look. Well done.
Thanks Justin!

Quoting Beardless Dwarf Good job! It definitely looks ruin-ish. Vader's helmet is in picture number 17, (assuming the numbers are above the pictures). When will you put up your Heroica build?
Thanks! To answer your question, I'll put it up later today :)

Thanks! For your guess, yes it's right! (though you put the wrong number, but you explained it correctly)

Gotcha!! 18th picture (excluding the main one), on the left, where the barrel with gold is in the next pictures

Quoting David . Great Job David! I think I know where his helmet is... On the bottom of the roof? (like under one of the cracks?)
Now I see what your guess is, it's a good guess, but that's actually a cone with a 1x1 round plate on top. Plus, you guessed when I hadn't put in that the helmet is only in 1 picture. Try again if you want :)

Quoting Justin Knelsen Nice work! I love the scattered look it gives it an abondoned look. Awesome work!

Thanks! The helmet is not there :) It's actually somewhere else. I'll put a number before each picture so it'll be easier for me to tell what picture that you guess :)
