"They're here!" - Team Savage Gerbils
Team Savage Gerbils, in the category "Forced Perspective" for the 2011 MOCathalon.
About this creation
Forced Perspective:
Any subject matter you wish, but the main focal point must be a forced perspective shot for that is what you will be judged on, how well you depicted the forced perspective.

No size restrictions

2011 MocAthalon
Team Savage Gerbils


I wanted to go for trickiness here so the build quality is lacking a little. The main pic says it all. Man it was hard to make all three layers line up and keep them focused! The only thing photoshopped is the background, the gun is about one meter behind the arm and the shuttle is about 30 centimeters behind the arm.

The inspiration for the shuttle is a "V" original series shuttle. It's not similar at all but that was the inspiration :)
Really loved that series (the long version).

And the gun is supposed to look like a V laser pistol. As a kid I built lots of V guns in real size, this one is much smaller :)


The pose


The laser pistol


The shuttle, the trans discs are supposed to make it look like it's just landing :)
Yes, I should have used another accent color on the engines...

Hope you like it!

If I should fall asleep before I finish one more entry I would like to thank all the judges for a great game and of course Team Savage Gerbils for letting me be part of the team! It's been a great month! Next year I will definitely work harder on getting more entries in faster!

Thank you!

I thought for SURE that the gun was photoshopped in! That is taking forced perspective to new levels!

At first I was thinking "hmm, not a bad build, got the forced perspective, but not much else." Then I looked at the gun and was trying to figure out what parts it used, since it looked so small. Then I had my lightbulb moment and realized that the gun wasn't in the guy's hand and was part of the forced perspective. The multiple layers of forced perspective just took this up and over the top. Nicely done.
