My MOC Olympics Entry (homepage). The category is fall.
At the end of fall, people come inside, preparing for a cold winter.
Snow has not yet fallen, but nonetheless, it is freezing outside, and much more comfortable in front of your roaring fire.
Details/Stuff you can't see in the main images
A side view of the first part.
Those little pieces on the side are just there because they look nice.
The back of the couch.
I wanted to try something small and easy to photograph for this one, so I made a two-piece creation with the entrance to a house and a fireplace/couch. The more SNOT, the better-so I made sure that the door and walls were SNOTed, as was the couch. I spent a relatively small amount of time on this, plus 10 minutes of looking for the first part after I had finished the second part and was ready to photograph.
I also removed some backgrounds with GIMP. The system isn't perfect, but it works really well on some MOCs.
I actually did see the category in this, but there just wasn't "enough" build in it for me. Nice start on the concept though, if you would have taken it further it may have been a different story. Thanks for playing! ~ Chris.
Mr. Fett, I appreciate the direction you took with this build. The ideas are very cleanly presented. I would have liked to see you focus more on the concept, maybe with a couple sitting together on the couch you built in front of the fire with some mood lighting. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
