Judges Comment: Very clean looking. Accuracy: It looks very brick built, but the over all effect is well done. 19 points. Techniques: It seems sturdy enough, but again, it is rather simple. 14 points. Originality/Creativity: Unfortunately, there is very little here that is new. Although the concept is clever, it wasn't as well executed as it could have been. 30 points. Thats 63 points. It's too bad the base doesn't count for anything, cause you would win. :^)
I really like your stand and the atmosphere. It might just be my imagination but it looks like there is something off about the tree, it doesn't seem like a bonsai, it is too straight up, I think it needs to be more twisted/slanted like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonsai_tree, but that is just my opinion. Overall a very cool moc. 4/5
What a brilliant idea, beautifully executed :) I love Bonzai trees and own a few of my own. I'd love to see what you could do given more time. I might have to try to make a Bonzai of my own. You'll get credit for the idea of course ;) Good luck with the contest, the competition is hotting up.
