2014 MocAthalon: Life's a Beach
About this creation
The MocAthalon

Team: Cheese Lovers

Category: Life's a Beach

As soon as I read the category, I knew exactly what I wanted to build. A few years ago, I went to Shaver Lake in California to camp there, and it was so beautiful there. I decided to build a campsite, with a landscape reminiscent to Shaver Lake's.

Life's a Beach

I was very pleased with the water, especially how the small falls turn white and back to a blue shade as it gets calmer.

Life's a Beach

A variation of my sig fig. The tent is from an Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull set.

Life's a Beach

The pine trees turned out okay. I have a very limited amount of grass pieces, so I had to shorten the amount of grass stalks on each branch. Despite that, I was quite pleased.

Life's a Beach

This tree was a pain to move without it breaking apart constantly.

Life's a Beach

Special shot for Kai Bernstein, who contains a hearty dislike of 1 x 1 tiles for stones.

Life's a Beach

Some foliage. I really enjoyed the colors in this moc.

Thanks for stopping by, please rate and comment!

Quoting Andrew the Jedi Ninja Nice peaceful scene. The water with the sky blue bricks is nice.
Thanks Andrew!
Quoting Halhi 141 Looks fantastic! The water is amazing, as usual: the colors look great and the shape of the water is wonderful. The rocks are good too, if a bit blocky. I think my only concern is the pine trees, maybe if you used a different technique once you ran out of grass stalks, then they might be better. Other than that, great job!
Thanks Halhi, especially for getting this to 50!
Quoting David . Since I started it I think I'm entitled to call you Phteven whenever I like. :P
Fine, Thtavid.
Quoting George Marshall Epic job! Besides the trees, which you have an excuse for, I can't say anything bad about this. Great job, and good luck!

Quoting Alex Sonny I agree with the colours, they give off a kind of cool vibe - like it was early winter or early spring, especially with the bright blue background. Since I like cold places this is really special! This song would make an excellent backdrop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e-1IMztH7M

Quoting Matthew Oh Great build Stephen! This was going to be a VERY high three, as the rockwork looks nice, the tree without the grass stalks is great, and the overall cleanliness of the build is awesome. But, looking at that sweet waterfall again, it pushed it to a 4. SCORE = 4. Well done!
Thanks Matthew! First 4!
