MocOlympics Round 1 - Water
About this creation
This is my entry for the 2011 MocOlympics, subject water.

This is a half-fish, a mechanically enhanced creature from the water planet of Ĥoria. Designed by the native sapient species (the Urlla), they are half fish and half sea vehicle


Anatomy

The half-fish's epidermal cells are coated in a pigmented cell wall, resembling cells of a plant; to enhance the durability of these cells, the cell wall is reinforced with a steel inner membrane, creating an effective form of armor. Because the skull is mainly hollowed out to form a cockpit, the brain (along with other organs) is in the abdomen. The half-fish lack a digestive system, and consume fuel in a similar fashion to cars and other vehicles, through a hole on their sides. The fuel consumed by half-fish consists of a protein rich soup, which can be absorbed directly by the vehicle, and does not require digestion.



Functionality

There are many different models of half-fish, each model designed to do some task. Most models serve the purpose of easy transport (like the one I have depicted here), others have been adapted for war, where a great diversity of half-fish is seen, but typically war models have very large jaws. A typical half-fish can swim up to 80 M.P.H, and can usually turn 45 degrees in 1.5 seconds.





Look, the Urlla emerges!

Quoting inexplicable creations A small menacing concoction, however i think it is lacking in detail.
Yes, I agree, I may revise it some time.

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy I’m not going to sugarcoat it: With your score of 20 you didn’t make it to round 2 this year. BUT Hans Dendauw (Swarley Stinson) has something up his sleeve for everybody between place 65 and 128: The 2011 MIT tournament (MOCpages Invitational Tournament) where you and the other 63 contestants have the chance to win another great prize. Check it out and good luck: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/18342
Thanks!

Well, I Must Say, There Are Some Nice Shaping Techniques In This MOC, However, I Feel That Some Of The Detail May Be Lost To Some Due To The Coloring. Though You Did In Fact Include A Non Lego Image, But I'm Referring More So About The Structure Of The Lego Not The 'Vehicle'. If It Were Possible, I Personally Would Have Added Some Coloring To Help Show Others The Detailing, But The Dark Color Scheme Has Its Appeal As Well. Another Thing I Feel That May Hurt You Is The Overall Lack Of Photos, But You're Talking To Someone Who Can Take Up To 50 Photos For A Single MOC. But I Feel That With More Pictures, You Would Help Show Others The MOC's Technical Aspects. Another Issue I Have Is The Main Photo, I Would Suggest Having A Picture Without An Creature In The Background, It Slightly Distracts From You MOC. Overall, A Really Nice MOC, But I Feel That In Order For Others To Truly Appreciate It, You Could Have More Presentation.

I think the problem with my lack of detail is not enough light in my photos (I've been criticized for that before). Thanks for reviewing, I'll try to keep the advice in mind for future MOCs!
