About this creation
So, firstly I would like to say thank you! Thank you to Sean for such a wonderful site, and thank you to the MODs that run the whole thing and deal with our petty questions and all that!

EDIT: Please ignore the grammar and spelling issues. This took a long time to upload, and the MP uploader messed up the order of ALL of the pictures, and I only discovered this AFTER I had written beneath them all. So after 2 1/2 hours, I finally have this posted. I need to go to bed soon since I need to get up at 6 AM to go to the Philippines.

In the past, all I did was post some graphic saying "yay me, I've improved so much, please comment". No one likes that, so this year I did something new! I was looking back over all of my creations, when I decided to look down at my comments. I was appalled to see how horrid my grammar was and how shallow my content. I considered deleting them, every last one of them. Then I realized, wow, some of these are kind of funny". So instead of hiding all of these pathetic brain droppings of mine, I decided to post them! Here they are!



My first comment! Over 3 years ago! I am not really sure what the guy commenting meant. But as you can see, I did not capitalize the beginning word of the sentence, and I sound like an idiot. It gets worse though, so keep reading.



This one is by far the most embarrassing of them all. I double posted and there are multiple grammar issues. If that was it, I would be less ashamed. But seriously, what was I doing? Did I think that was funny? I really don't know. Also, I was in to customizing back then. In a sense, I did waste a horse (the centaur), but I never even wasted any other horses besides that one. I'm not really sure why I lied about that. :P




When will I learn? Also, "lol thanks lol". Really? What was it with me and "lol"?



Aaaaaand "lol" again.



"Thanx". Just couldn't take the time to write the "ks", had to just write "x". On the plus side, I did punctuate the end of the sentence!



I think perhaps starting and ending sentences with "lol" was my way of punctuating.



Hey look, a comma!



Making another problem for TFOLs? What? Oh, there's a comma! So proud of me :D



I CAPITALIZED IT!



Capitalization AND commas, I am getting better at this!



Holy cow. A normal sentence! I know, it's short, but this is serious progress! It only took... 8 months!




Oh nice! I did pretty well with this one! It's also more than 3 words :D



I still can't capitalize "i" for whatever reason. Oh well, now you know why all of my accounts (aside from MP) have some form of "renagrade" in it.



Honestly, I still have problems with not finishing sentences with any punctuation


Heh, see what I did there?

Anyhow, I must say, I am still no where close to perfect with comments. I often still make these mistakes, although mostly because I am too lazy to read everything over after I have finished writing it. The same thing goes for my MOCs. I re-read them sometimes. Sometimes.

Alright, on to events! Or at least some of the main ones.



31 likes! That was a big one for me, passing 30! Sadly, in the three years I have been here, I have only done it a few times. Still, I was really happy!



34! This is only significant because it stayed there for a long time :P



51! I got that with my popular Interactive Illustrations. This MOC remains my second most popular.



58 likes! Island Locked II- Episode 1. I worked really hard on that, but it isn't my favorite of all my MOCs. Not by a long shot.



Another Interactive Illustration. 3rd most popular at the moment :)



My first 4x4 contest! I entered it myself, which was rather odd, and a conflict of interest.



53 people, 16 entries, 232 conversation. Not bad for my first one.



And a year later (about) we have my second 4x4 contest.



Not that many more members, but I certainly improved the participation! 55, 27, and 359!



Aaaand year 3 (this year). I got a lot more people this time, and even more participation. Especially considering it is still ongoing! 127, 83, 824 :)

Alright alright, I'm getting to the MOCs!



I made a few crappy MOCs when I first joined. None of them are worth noting until my 5th or so MOC. This MOC (even looking back on it) was genius. I dared to do something never done before on MOCpages. An RPS, Role-Playing Story. I basically posted pictures showing all of my minifigure parts, and let people pick out their characters. After that, I made a story with them, and let people choose what to do!

The series was inspired by Lost (second all time favorite show!)



Not soon after, I got my first MOC above 20! A MOC depicting how tough life as a TFOL was. I had some fun with that one (even though I used a car from a set. I didn't even bother to customize it :P).



This was when I first began to work with photoshop. I was really proud of this back then, and based on how little I knew about photoship or about taking pictures, this is actually not bad. Just ingor the window in the background ;)



Spot the difference! Oh, you thought someone else started that? I posted this back in December of 2010. Honestly though, I don't remember if I thought of this on my own or not, I just know that it has been around a lot longer than most people think. :P



Here is the MOC that managed 51 likes. The greebles aren't all bad, I actually haven't tried any since then :P This was also my first snot build.



Some crappy photoshop mixed with some good photoshop. The crappy being the blood (oh dear) and the good (average) being the flying dude. I really liked this at the time though.



My first big creation! This was the WIP, and I did finish it, but the photos are broken :(



Season 02 of Island Locked soon came around. I liked that picture quite a bit! Also, notice that "season" has nothing to do with normal TV seasons. It just means "I decided that I have worked on the long enough to want to call it a new season" :P



Soon enough (10 episodes and 3 months), season 3 rolled around.



I build my first ship ever for and Island Locked episode. I actually surprised myself, and was very happy with it!



First Halo MOC! I know... BURPs.



I later expanded it to make my biggest MOC yet! Yeah, I loved it back then. I don't really like it anymore :P



I got a new poster for Island Locked! I actually managed to do alright with it, if you ignore the BURPs and the fleshy-yellow mix!



Aaaaand another one. I liked this one the most, despite the fact that I was forced to use MS Paint instead of PS. Also, season 4 started up!



Soon, island locked finished. I was actually really sad. I had a total of 42 episodes, and the show spanned over 9 months. The finale then became my most popular creation!

Oh, I forgot to mention, my sign-up for Island Locked got over 60 likes, but it seemed unfair since several (about 15 or 20) where people commenting again.



I moved on pretty quickly onto my new series, Aftermath! Inspired by I Am Legend. I gotta say, I still love that main picture ;) Episode 1 soon tied with the finale of Island Locked in likes.



Aftermath had a lot of work put into the sets. This was my biggest and most detailed MOC yet.



Soon season two came around, and I changed the picture a bit. Notice I was not a purist back then, hence the use of BA.

Aftermath lasted 25 episodes before I ended it epic (in my opinion;) ). I managed to make and post all 25 episodes in just 2 months. I had so much time =O



Next up was New Denver. This show was inspired by Jericho. Are you seeing a pattern? Let me spell it out: I am easily inspired, and often undertake large projects because of this inspiration :P



I actually build the whole town for this one, and wrote the scripts out ahead of time! Although the last part actually seemed to make the show worse :P I do better by just doing whatever :P



Island Locked II! Inspired by the later seasons of Lost, as well as Heroes. You can tell when you view the MOCs :P This one got a lot of recognition, mostly because the story for my Pilot Episode was over 100 photos long :O and had some cool flashbacks and graphics. Actually, I give it less credit than it deserves, really.



I got into animating not too long afterward! That was really fun, but super time consuming. But that was good, because my life was really boring at the time :P



One of my favorite MOCs to date. Also my biggest interior! It had an interesting story, and I had really hoped it would replace my most popular at the time.

EDIT: I just realized I said almost the exact same thing my MOC description said :P



I decided to do II for a second time, and I managed to get my first episode to my 3rd most popular. I really liked the layout of the set. I still think it isn't bad.



Town Mafia. One word: Disaster. I finished the game, but honestly, I rushed it really bad, since I was really bored with it. Still sorry about that, Flare! :P



The set wasn't bad, though.



Flight 411. I don't actually remember what this was inspired by. Oh wait! I remember. I made the main picture (without the text) and decided it was too good to waste, so I made an entire series because of it xD.



After that, I made Bethany. That was really fun, and a short story. I was really really disappointed with how few likes it got. I worked for days, and it got 16. I learned a lot about building though, and also just how unpredictable likes on MOCpages really are.



Hunger Games! I build a legit set for that one, and it was pretty great, up until the point that I got bored.



I then started Anarchy instead! I really liked that graphic (still do), and the sets where pretty good for my standards. Also, I started using my Canon Rebel t3i for pictures, which was a massive improvement.



Aaaaand I started animating again. I was actually pretty popular, and started getting subscribers, buuut again, it took too much time, and I was bored with it :P



I left MP for a month or so, then came back with (still) my favorite LEGO project yet. My

Then I joined LOM! When I saw the group I thought "Dang, why did I not think of this first?". So I joined. I quickly noticed that one of their factions had an inactive leader. Within a month I managed to convince the other admins to let me take his spot and help get the faction on it's feet. I was pretty happy about that, and since then I have brought the faction (mostly) back to life! Of course, we're still a bit behind, but hey, they had a head start ;) If you are interested, check out the faction here!



I then entered the BBG with my first actual (I had other, not really serious) entry to a contest. This creation earned me a place in round 2.

some_text

Here is my round 2 entry. It is my first forced perspective, and I'm pretty happy with it :)


Thanks to all these people who have been a real help and good friends here on MOCpages! (in no particular order). Also, I know I have forgotten a lot of you, and I am truly sorry, but I am in a bit of a rush!

Thanks everyone! Sadly, I didn't get to finish this list, since I need to pack, take a science test, and sleep.

So, 3 years. Seems like not that long ago I joined. Hah, who am I kidding? It feels like I have been on MOCpages for ages :P

Anyhow, I think it's safe to say I have matured a bit since the beginning (I hope) both it language, skill, and relationship skills. If I had more time, I would totally posted pictures of all of the fights I have had over the years here. Most of them my fault, but still funny :P

I hope you liked this MOCiversary! I really enjoyed looking back over everything and seeing how much I have changed! I hope you got a good laugh from the comments, I certainly did!

One last thing! I am heading out to the Philippines to help out with the disaster as my dad's medical assistant, so wish me luck! Also, if I am not back by the deadline of my 4x4 contest, please be patient, I'll be back when I can!

It's been an amazing three years everyone, cheers!

Quoting Athanasios Lazarou Hahaha, congrats on your three years! I think I've been on the 'pages for 4 years, now, but I just can't remember. And I have no time to be active. At all. Which is kind of a bummer. I'm still in my Dark Ages at the moment. I do have to say that you've definitely improved, and of course you'll keep on improving! I still remember that "fight" we had when you posted that one Island Locked episode where I lectured you on the correct way a doctor stitches a patient... it was a really long comment and I was pretty proud of it until you deleted it! :P Hahaha! I shouldn't have posted it to begin with, I realized a while after. Anyway, best of luck to you in all your future endeavors! And once again, congrats on your three years. Here's to many more.
Hahaha! I got in fights with a few people back in the day! I must say, I miss you being around. Are you ever returning?

Also you messed up on some of the stuff you rote, in the MOC! :) I think I'm going to go check out some of the island locked, MOCs you made, they look like they would have been a lot of fun to build! And my most popular MOC is my round 1 BBG entry. I love that MOC. ~Bill
