About this creation
I have been playing around with MOCaversary ideas. I thought of stating all my accomplishments but that would be silly. So instead, I'm going to show my "journey" thus far and those who helped me along the way!

Before I get started, a massive shout out to Michael Rutherford. When I uploaded my first creation, he gave me some of the best advice I've heard. Thank you!



My first creation ever on the 'pages: Helm's Deep. Thanks to Freeling for my first like ever.



My first 50: The Crimson Typhoon! A beast in my opinion and I've love to re-do it soon. Thanks to J-Rod Smith for my first 50!



Then this came along. . . I can't wait 'till the day when I build a creation that surpasses it :P I reached one of the biggest milestones a MOCer can reach: 100 likes! Huge thanks to Thatch Gears!



Until The Tourney (where I made it to round 3), I was fine with how I was building. Then I joined the Average Gnomes and Halhi and Kai Bernstein showed me what I needed to improve on.

To any builder who feels like he/she is not improving, go to those guys! Ask for advice! Because of Halhi's advice, I have gotten pretty good at rocks in a short amount of time. I'm thankful for constructive criticism.

I have competed in MELO, where I sadly got eliminated at round 2, haha, and I competed in the MOCathalon very recently. I think I did some good building there.

The next two photos show the two creations that I think are my best.





Both were for the MA. My team was Young Guns! Which brings me to my next point. The reason I came to the 'pages . . . wait, I forget why I did. But I came with a group of guys: Mark McPeek, Jacob Pennington, Zach Lucia, and Graham Gidman. We all came from the LOTR Lego Gallery. Several more builders have come over since we did and are rapidly improving.

I have had the honor of being called 192 people's favorite builder! (That was phrased weirdly . . .)

So, to close things off, I'd like to say thank you. For the criticism, encouragement, friendship . . . And this is sounding too sappy. Better go the next part. Here is a list of SOME of the fantastic people I have met!

Nathan Pownell, T.J. Pownell, Kevin Moyer, Timothy Post, Thomas B., A M, Justin M, Justin Knelsen, Isaiah Marc, Nick Barret, Matt Rowntree, Sam the First, David FNJ, Lindel Baskin, Gilbert Despathens, Object of Legend, Cheryl P, Clayton Marchetti, Grant Davis, Professor B., Thomas of Tortuga, J D, LCV, Matt W., Tim S., Topher Adams, Caleb R., Brick, Frank, Asad Brunsting, Topsy, Abby Francis, Matt Bace, Ian Spacek, Phteven Boe, Matthew Oh, Mr. Cab, Achintya Prasard. Mark Murphy, Reynolds, Yuri Fasio, Fraser Robinson, David Alexander Smith, That guy you saw earlier, Stephan N, Karol J, Mitchell Long, XY EZ, Justin L., Andrew, Andrew the Jedi Ninja, Toa Infernum, Chris ., Bill Daniels, Starscream Soundwave, Tom Amey, Dr. Monster,Rylie French, Freeling, and Graeme Straughn.

That's all I can think of right now. Cheers all!

Great first year, Alex. As simple as it is, Calvin is definitely my favorite of your works, which is to say nothing negative about the rest of your portfolio. Your works are great, but Calvin and Hobbes is my all-time, without a doubt, favorite comic ever in the history of ever. Watterson left the game too early. It looks like you've made a great start in your time as a builder. Your rockwork is definitely worth the look, and I would love to see a revisiting of that mech. It's great as it is, but we can always improve on our strengths. Cant' wait to see what Year Two will bring us. Maybe...Hobbes???? (Hint, hint).
