MocOlympics - Round 1 - Summer
Category: Summer
About this creation
As required: MocOlympics group homepage.

I puzzled over what category to build in when they were announced. I eventually decided to build in the summer category. Then I decided to have a guy on the beach because when I think summer this is what I see. Will this get me into round 2? I have no idea. Many of the other entries are amazing. Good luck to all!


We'll start off with a front view of the MOC. I think you really get a "summer" feel from the MOC.


A side view of the MOC. This kept getting longer as I found more parts!


An overhead view of the MOC. Not my biggest build by any means.


Here's where the water and sand meet. I wanted to make sure that there was some "wet" looking sand here.


An over view of the mid section of the vig.


And this is the forced-perspective, back wall. The sun was rather a drag to attach because of the hands. I managed to figure something out though. The cloud was very fun to build.


This is where I wanted to concentrate my work on the vig. I thought that the minifigures were the center piece here.


Here's the guy's beach chair. It is pretty cool if you ask me. Sadly, it isn't my design. It was built by Asbestos Bill


I built the towel with 1x4 tiles instead of SNOTing it because I wanted to have the towel on top of the sand.


These are sand dunes, forced perspective sand dunes. Getting a curve that look right with these was rather hard.


From this angle the forced perspective looks about right.

Building the background (especially with the sun) was a really nice touch. The beach could have used a bit more details, but those that you put in were great.

This was a great build, nicely detailed, and very artistic use of color. Concise and to the point in terms of category. Clever use of the the background sun/cloud, too. Well done!

Your total score for Round one was 32. Unfortunately, that doesn't give you enough points to move on. BUT, you do qualify for the MIT competition. To compete there, follow this link: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/18342 and good luck!

Excellent building! I really like the colouring of the sand (wet to dry) and the force-perspective, it is quite impressive.
