"Bob the Wizard Reads a Book on an Early Spring Day" is a MOCathlon entry in category 13 (Landscape) for the Golden Relievers.
About this creation
It was a late afternoon in early spring and Bob, wizard and adviser to Lord Jerek of Glomshire, decided this was as good of a place as any to sit under a tree and read a book. Something YOU should think about doing now and then, Johnny MOCpages.








This model is meant to convey the serenity of a peaceful riverbank near the base of a cliff and is my first serious attempt at landscaping of any kind. I only wish I had a ton of green and brown jumper plates so I could break up the flat grassy area and create dips and folds there. I also tried to make the transitions between each of the three main features (that would be water, grass, and rocks for the uninitiated) as natural as I could.


NO BURPS WERE USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS MODEL!
Why not read Glomshire Knights?

Very cool! I would've preferred the grass to be all studs and to contrast slightly with the serene water, but that's just personal taste.

Ah, the serenity. I like those trees, especially the one on the water. Nice SNOT work as well. I agree with what you said about breaking up the terrain (I'm guilty of doing the same thing), but it's an excellent start to your landscaping career!

I really like it. The only issue I have is the transition between the rocks and the field (I would have liked to have seen something more there). A solid 3 pointer.

Although it doesn't meet the spirit of the category, it does meet the words of the category. Therefore, you get the benefit of doubt. A lovely build, and I am especially fond of the trees. Three (3) points. Lee.

This is nice. What book is that he's reading anyways? And now we have SNOT and BURPS. What's next, PUKE?

Beautiful Landscaping. To get the more serene peacful picture though I think you should add a couple of bunnies http://www.bricklink.com/search.asp?q=rabbit Nothing screams spring like frolicing bunnys

Awesome! I love the cliff, and the trees are just great!

3 points, Dennis. I like the "juxtaposing" idea of the tree in the water, but there's no shoring or rippling around it. It wouldn't be a problem, but you did it for the river bank, so the tree just seems... put over there as an afterthought. Far more than I can do, anyway.

Quoting Garth Danielson What's wrong with BURPS? Nice place to catch some letters. see ya. garth
Why, nothing's wrong with BURPS, or burps for that matter. I used BURPS all the time in Glomshire Knights (and I burp all the time if I drink too much soda) -- I just wanted to see how I'd do without using a BURP as base material.

Very nice, I wish I could have built something this big for the "Landscape" category... compared to this, mine's pretty small...

Nice work! The water transition is really good looking as is the cliff. Good luck with the judges.

Nice! I've spent 2 days on a castle for the contest, but I honestly think there are some much better ones, including this. Good luck!
