This is my 1st anniversary here on MOCpages. I had discovered the pages some month earlier, but I needed some bricks to build my own stuff. By the way, I chose MOCpages over the other LEGO® pages because I liked its design best.
About this creation
To celebrate my fist year I open another page in my LEGONOMICON: I created a new H. P. Lovecraft vignette, based on the movie Dagon which is actually based on the story The Shadow over Innsmouth , the only book of him published during his lifetime.
For those of you who want to read the story about Robert Olmstead (which I highly recommend), I don’t want to spoil anything. Go away.
Some of you know that I don’t have much time at the moment. I took this pictures at work, not at home, and now I think that they didn’t quite came out the way I wanted them to be. The problem is, the alley in the vig is too narrow to take interesting pictures from different angles. Oh well, next time.
Okay, this was my first year here. I’m looking forward to the next ones. Special thanks to Sean Kenney for providing this awsome platform and to Chris Phipson and Mark Kelso for their never ending work, inspiration and motivation. Bones, Leda, Hans, Heath, Shifu, Stu, Tom, El Barto, Dave, Dennis and all the others that I didn’t name here due to laziness (but I love you anyway), let me tell you something:
You all took my innocent little mind, scrambled it and turned me into the evil, bloodlusting monster that I am today.
And I want to thank you for that. Glad to be here.

It is great to see Lovecraft fans build with Legos ;) It is even greater to see such nice details overwhelming the whole creation.. I mean every way I look there is some eye-candy :D Excellent!
This is a gorgeous creation. I love the textures and the tiny alley is very captivating and spooky. Your work is always flawless and stunning and hauntingly beautiful. Its been great getting to know you these past few months and I look forward to your next year on the pages and what wonders you might build!
Hey, beautiful, yet again. Nail on the head, bull's eye,etc. And, thanks for the advice. Read my response on my page. You sir, are my new hero. Thank you for the advice, and I will keep on mocing, Dark Age or not. I guess I just need some new inspiration: Movie watching time this weekend. And now I have some new inspiration from this moc. Thanks again, keep on bricking.
Another great job Mr! I'm leaving the details: 1) The roofs 2) the narrow lane 3) rounded off the wall 4) The Devil on crutches 5), the lamp 6) the uneven pavement 7) the last picture. This is powerful, high-impact, and creates a lot of suspanse.
My congratulations, I'm speechless! This Win !!!!!
But the narrow alley is cinematically potent, and all the brilliant texturing still comes through, as do various details everywhere. We'll compensate for the limited views by assuming there are yet more details we don't see. Does that help?
