M.O. R1: Farmer Brick's Bad Day
Round 1 entry for the 2013 MocOlympics!
About this creation
2013 MocOlympics
Your categories for round one are:

"The 12 Signs of the Zodiac."

You know... Leo, Scorpio, Gemini and so on. Choose any ONE of the 12 Zodiac signs and build a moc incoorporating that ONE sign into it. (in case you haven't noticed, you're only allowed to choose ONE of the twelve signs). No size limits.

I picked Taurus, the Bull.

------------

Farmer Brick was having a bad day. First someone rustled his cows, and now weird shapes are appearing in his hay fields. What could be going on?


Overview.


Another overview.


The furious Farmer Brick on his tractor.


The Taurus crop circle in the grass.


If he didn't know better, he would think it was aliens.


A bunny hiding.


A misplaced alien blaster.


Evidently they identified the scarecrow as a hostile and treated it as such.


The lane.


Without the tractor.


Barbed wire fence and other details.


Overhead view of the lane.


UFOs abducting cows.


Farmer Brick with a pitchfork and his tractor with a 3-point mounted mower.






Controls.


Fender technique.


3-point hitch. You can also see the PTO shaft.


Raised.


Lowered.


Underside.


Another view.


FOURTH WALL:
I saw the categories early this morning and ruminated on them for half an hour before going back to bed. After lunch I went on an insane building spree, finishing this in 3 hours of solid building. Placing all the grass stems and creating the pattern was horribly tedious. I really like the tractor, I think it looks quite realistic.


Hopefully this will get me to round 2. Wish me luck! Please rate and comment to show your support.

I think the star here is the tractor - it's a tight, realistic looking model, but I do love the little forced perspective UFOs and cows! Good job and good luck.

Excellent tractor design, and I like the details like the compressed dirt on the road. I think the landscaping was a bit rough though, and overall presentation could have been improved with a little effort.

LOL! Bovine abduction! Nice entry!

I have to agree with the others, the build seems too rushed and simple, and the connection to the category doesn't seem too strong. Still, good luck.

I really like the tractor, but besides the taurus sign in the fields, what does farming and zodiac have to do with each other?

Quoting George Marshall Very nice! My favorite part would have to be the UFO's abducting cows, but everything else was very nice too! I also really liked the tractor and the rake, very realistic. Is that take an original technique or did you see someone else do it? I've never seen that before, and I would love to use it, but I need to know who I can give credit to! ;) Great job, and good luck in the contest!
Thanks! Did you mean the technique using the shuriken blades? I have never seen them used like that so I guess you can credit me!

Quick on the draw on DA attacks, even quicker on the draw in MO builds... first entry in the contest gets a like from me! Nice idea and well executed, hope it gets you to round 2.

So I was wrong... But still if you can change it, try making tan ground with swirly lines in the crop circles. Because that is how they look.

Nice job! I like all the detail you were able to accomplish in a short time. The ruts in the dirt road are especially cool and the barbed wire is practically perfect. Good luck!

Very nice! I like the tractor and the mower attachments! However, I have to say that the link with Taurus is rather difficult to discern. Good job, anyway!

Very good entry. The little details like the cows, bunny and blades in the tractor are great. I think you may have added this to the group a bit early since you've not much feedback and it is still the first day, but as the number of entries so far, I'd say you've got a pretty good shot at getting through to the next round. ;)

Mate, I know you are excited, but take a veteran's advice and take your time with these contests. We have 10 days, and you whipped yours off in less than a day. Not saying that it isn't good, but I know it could be a lot better. Even if this was the best creation in the world, it could still be better because true quality comes when time is invested into it. Still, best of luck and I hope you do well.

That's cool! I love the tractor and the crop circle.

Nice! Reminds of that one movie with the aliens and there are holes in the corn fields or something...
