The MOC of Honor for the Olympian Contest: Olympians #2
All right everyone! As the Olympian contest comes to a close I have the final scores! Real quick I'd like to say Thank you ALL for making this contest fun! I enjoyed every entry and the judges and I had fun judging them. For this MOC of honor I took everything I liked (except unfortunately Lego Lord's fountain) and put it into one set of Olympians! I hope you all like them I did this so it would honor everyone and not just the winner. Thanks again for everything! ~Mark All right so here we have Zeus god of thunder, rain and the sky: I got the cloud idea from Lego Lord and everyone who commented on my original Olympians said to change his torso and head.
About this creation

Hera goddess of marriage, family, and cows. Though many of you did a marriage scene I first go the idea from the Timinator. Also from Tim I got the idea not to put a white dress but to try something else for Hera. The Cow was actually my idea I had it before my brother used it.

Poseidon god of the sea, horses and earthquakes. Honestly Poseidon is the only one I didn't get an idea from from any of you. I did add a large display though as you can see and I gave him horses.

Side view showing horses.

Here's a back view. I used the Aqua Raiders body because it has a trident on the back.

Hades god of the dead. My Hades also was not greatly influenced but I did get the cliff idea from several of you. The skeleton guards were my own idea but the skeletons lying around I originally got from Eduardo.

Athena goddess of wisdom, war, and owls. My Athena was mostly changed by Eduardo. I loved his books and study so I tried to make something like it. The owl is really almost everyone. I was disappointed that almost no one's Athena had blonde hair so I put on my own and left the helmet in the box to the right.

Hermes god of messengers, travel, thieves, medicine, and trade. Hermes was changed by essentially all of you. I realized my original Hermes' torso needed to change because of almost all the entries. The medicine bottle I got from Tim. Tim had this on Apollo to show healing. I loved it but because really it would be medicine and not healing I gave it to Hermes because he is god of medicine. I also added winged sandals to him. I was sadly disappointed in most of the Caduceuses or Hermes stave's because only one featured a snake.

Ares god of war and wolves. Ares was influenced by Agent Annie. She gave me the idea of what face to use. Almost all of you had a dog for Ares so I gave him two! Also I gave him a shield with a wolf on it to further emphasize him.

Aphrodite goddess of beauty, love, and doves. We all know where I got my heart idea: Timinator! I used the heart idea from him though I made it bigger. I can't remember where I got the brush idea from though.

I think this face is perfect for Aphrodite.

Hephaestus god of fire, forging, labor, and craftsmen. Hephaestus' fire effect was taken from first Eduardo but then Tim as well. The face was the best I could find and it fits him nicely.

Apollo god of light, truth, archery, prophecy, healing, poetry, music, plague, and sometimes the Sun. I changed his face because the old one didn't fit him almost all of you showed me that. How is the-light brick working out?

Here he is without the light-brick.

Artemis goddess of the hunt, wild animals, and sometimes the moon and stars. Artemis was influenced by the Grey Man. If you see his Artemis you know ours are almost identical but my display is much different. One of the few differences is that though Artemis is goddess of all wild animals her favorite is the deer. That is the reason for giving her that shield.

These are my animals I used for her. There's a hunting dog, a snake, a polar bear, an owl, another bird and an elephant.

Here is her back view. This is one of the few differences from The Grey Man's Artemis. I gave her a Star-cape.

Dionysius god of wine and revelry. My Dionysius was changed by most of you. The cup is my idea but putting the red stud had never occurred to me before I saw the entries. Also the grapes on the vine I got mainly from Tim.

This is Demeter and Persephone. Though BOTH are not Olympians I made them for this just for fun.

Demeter goddess of the harvest, and agriculture sister of Zeus. You can see my Demeter has and old fashioned scythe-type tool to cut wheat.

Persephone goddess of flowers and plants daughter of Demeter. Persephone here is simple and similar to her mother but she's good all the same.

And Finally the winner of the Olympian Contest: AGENT Annie!
This is my Greek version of Agent Annie's sigfig. Congratulations!

The final scores for everyone are here I wanted to include 2nd and 3rd place but I ran out of time:

1st Agent Annie: 27.5/36
2nd Timinator: 26.5
3rd Eduardo Diaz: 25.5
4th Matthew Murphy: 25
5th For 5th we have a three-way tie between:
Lego Lord, The Grey Man, and Captain Nemo
all of them had the same score of: 24.5

Once again thank you all for participating in this contest! I hope to hold a similar one soon!

~Mark

Hera could be better, and a few others, but then there are a lot of them.
