MELO Round 1: Wind
About this creation
My round one entry to the 2013-14 Middle Earth Lego Olympics.
Category: Wind
Voiceless it cries, wingless flutters, toothless bites, mouthless mutters.

So for this scene I decided to try and incorporate wind with my limited resources of clear pieces (aka 1x2 clear bricks). It turned out okay, but not like I imagined it would be if I had some 1x1 clear round bricks.


Voiceless it cries --> Wind makes this crying and howling noise when it blows through caves. Thus I included a cave.
Wingless Flutters --> As the wind blows through the trees, it makes a fluttering sound because of the leaves. Thus I included a tree bending in the wind.
Toothless Bites --> Have you ever been outside in the cold when the wind is blowing? Your face feels like it's getting a bite. Thus I included Gandalf the White walking with the wind biting him.
Mouthless Mutters --> When I think of wind muttering, I think of when it blows over the water causing ripples and making the water sound like it is muttering. Thus I included the water.

I hope you enjoy this scene!


Only a few pictures are with the brick-built wind because they kind of distract from the rest of the scenery.



































FNJ's comments:
My favorite part of this build is definitely the rockwork. It took a long time but it was well worth the effort. I also like the textured ground by using a lot of 1x1 dark green bricks at various levels (thank you pick-a-brick). Another cool but subtle thing I like about this build is how I did the water. From the overhead view you can see how it goes from darker water to lighter water. Underneath the water I put white, light gray, dark gray, and black plates and then scattered the surface with the blue studs to get a less dramatic effect of water depth instead of using lighter blue studs and clear blue studs (partly because I don't actually have a lot of those studs). Finally, I like the tree trunk technique using the dark brown barrels. I put a flexible rod through them all so that I could bend the tree without having it delicately balanced or toppling over while taking photos.







Thanks for looking, God bless!

ike the barrels used in the tree. I think I did that once, and it looked cool. But, I am on a site called www.starwars.lego.com/creations, and that is where most of my online lego time goes to. I;m just not a medieval builder. Hey, show me a picture of a star wars scene, (star wars the clone wars) and give me the bricks, and I'll build it like a boss!

I just noticed that you used barrels to make the tree. Cool!

I know it's a bit late, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in anyway. I love how you captured the wind in the tree, it's perfect.

the water and landscape are really superb! as for the wind, well, maybe we should only try to build it s effects on objects, as opposed to water, it s not visible, but, it s effects are, I figure it to be the solution, nice try.

Quoting David . Nice rockwork, and while I can't see the different shades of blue, the rest of the build is awesome! :D
Thanks! You can see the different shades of blue best in this picture: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=378062&id=/user_images/97537/1388869428m

The landscaping is the stand-out feature of this build, really pretty! And the way you've designed the water and positioned the tree and Gandalf gives an impression of a windswept scene even without the trans-clear bricks. Excellent!

You are right, the rock work is definitely the best part of the whole awesome MOC! P.S. this looks way better with the brick-built wind removed.

Excellent build in all details! I personally believe that the best impression of the blowing wind is given by the tree's foliage and shrubs inclination. Bravo.

Very nice work David! The water looks perfect, and of course, the rock work is great. The added bonus of the wind effects really take this over the top ;-)

It succeeds in looking blustery without the trans-clear 'wind' add-ons. That tree trunk technique is brilliant. Nice landscape too.
