MELO Round 4: KW Vauban vs. Justin Knelsen
Barad Dur Bracket
About this creation
Our qoute is: „Naughty little fly, why does it cry, caught in a web, soon to be... eaten!“


My formidable opponent is Justin Knelsen in the MELO 2013/ 2014 contest round 4.


I have to admit I was not very happy with this quote. I had always disco86‘s great entry from the last year in my mind. I was short in time - as always. So I begun to build a cave to have an entry at least. Shelop followed and … I had an idea: the tower of Barad Dur in microscale as attempt to use forced-perspective.
When this was done, I thought: These white strings … what can I do with them? Of course … a web. So I started building a big tree as long as I had reddish brown bricks ;).





Frodo on his way through the mountains.



He passed the bones of some really unlucky beeings.



His enemy is looking for him.



Barad-Dur.



The singer ...



Attention Frodo!



Shelob, the dangerous.











The big tree: a spider will have diner with a fly ...



Barad-Dur as the link between the two parts of the MOC



The main picture without the background





The whole MOC



Shelob ...



and her little 'sister'



Thanks for this great contest.

Greetings from Germany.

Well, I've been putting off judging this match-up for long enough...it took me forever to decide. It's 51 to 49 split for me. I've leaned both ways multiple times. Justin's Shelob is absolutely incredible, I like his strong relevance to the category with Frodo "caught in a web", and the overall appearance of his build is much more satisfying. However, with the exception of spiders, your build displays superior building skill. Your rock-work is drop dead gorgeous, your forced perspective (tying the two sections of your build together) is inventive, and I like how you included the fly in the web--a nice nod to the category. In the end you get my vote, but only by the narrowest margin.

This is a difficult match up because it comes down entirely to subjective interpretation of the category and builds. I was blown away by Justin's Shelob, but KW has some exceptional rock work (which I am always partial to). Justin's Shelob came close to swinging the vote, but my vote goes to KW on account of the scale that he attempted.

This is amazing, though I do think some of the tree branches are proportionately too small. P.S. The spiders name is Shelob.

Another great MOC! I personally think thta this one is better than the one by Justin Knelsen. The structure of the rocks is even better, the tree is just amazing. I don't think this scene can get any better!
