Moc Off - David Vs. Mark Murphy . Finally here, though finished a couple days ago... .
So, Built for a Moc off between me and Mark.
Link to my opponents page.
To make the judges lives easier.
(And Reynolds especially, before you deduct point for dust on the bricks, I want to let you know I used a paintbrush to clean them off this time. :) (And for those who couldn't decipher, the sign in the title pic says "Harvest") :D
The whole scene. As you can see the hobbits are here, and even Gandalf has paid a visit to make the occasion more festive.
The party, seating/eating/drinking area where hobbits are showing up. I like the banner. :)
Gandalf, who is semi custom, smoking his pipe.
His half snot stool. :L
The dude on the left is having troubles with his chicken, and the dude on the right is really gulping it down. >:O
The refreshments, fruits, meat, and ale. :d
My custom barrel. Thanks to Blake Baer for the hand nozzle technique!
The stage with the podium.
Without the banner.
An old farmers cart.
I like this fig the most. :) Notice his striped shirt. :D
This cart is similar to my last one. This is different.....
I've got the same slant technique.
The wheels are basically the same. :)
But I did redesign the whole front of the thing and this harness. I like this harness better.
The party tree.
A young hobbit jumps from the ledge.
A little girl in the pile of leaves, with some in her hair.
The tree. Thank goodness for drafts!
How some are tilted.
More branches. Trust me, had I gotten my hands on more olive branches, this would be more filled out. :)
The tower technique for the base. I think I'll always remember building this because my family was watching "War Horse" whilst I chose to build this. I could hear it perfectly, and enjoyed it all the more because I noticed it had both the actors who play Loki, and Sherlock Holmes. (From the new BBC tv show)
Looks like every batch has a trouble maker. ;)
It looks like this young Hobbit has shot off a mushroom rocket of Gandalfs'... It was meant for the last day of harvest... I guess a smoke ring will just have to suffice.
Inside the tent. (Sorry it's so barren, It is hard to work in a tent)
The trail of spilled hay from the wagon.
Now, for my favorite part of the whole thing, the hobbit hole! I enjoyed building this so much I will most probably do it some other time. :D (Might even add another burrow to make it two!)
The yard. With a solitary chicken. Now the reasons for the grass not being all the same color are, 1. All the green plates you see is all the green plates I have, aside from a hinge and a slant, and 2. It's fall, so the grass is dying.
His garden, with SNOT dirt, cabbages, carrots, and tomatoes!
My custom pump. Thanks to Freeling ++ who gave me some inspiration for the pump.
The stone road to his hole.
The side and a root.
Some of the top.
Bats flying away... ('Tis Halloween, No?)
The other side. I personally like this side better.
His circular window.
The hobbit hole interior.
The old hobbit greets the trick-or-treaters.
The candy bowl. Oohh, look! The last red one!
The door can open and close.
A picture of his beautiful wife. A'fore she passed on.
His writing chair. Sorry blake, I ruthlessly STOLE this technique from you... Hope it's okay!
His quill and a le'er he finished mos' recen'.
(Sorry about the dark pic... I had to block out eh light so it wasn't so overexposed)
The door closed.
The trick-or-Treaters. Please note the hood bag. :) (My own technique)
Close up for proof of a hood.
The old hobbit.
Well now, if you've finally had the temperance and patience to get through all the pictures, I congratulate and commend you. :) *pats on back* Thanks judges, and good luck Mark!
Hope You Enjoyed! Thanks For Looking!

God Bless ~ David.
