Fish Supper
A short poem inspired by the children’s book ‘Commotion in the Ocean’. The fish is based on a Hairy Angler. I wanted the photos to be darker and more atmospheric but I have found it extremely difficult to get it right. I hope you like the bioluminescence effect - I have used 4 light bricks, glow in the dark teeth and eyes.
About this creation
My entry for the 2011 MocOlympics Round 2. I am going head to head with Owen S . Category - Fathoms Below.

FISH SUPPER


Down in the fathoms of the deep blue sea,
no light can penetrate it is difficult to see.



There are creatures down there I tell you no lie,
they have scales of light like stars in the sky.



Their bioluminescence draws you in,
with a warm fuzzy feeling all over your skin.



They creep up behind from the dark of the gloom,
If you’re not too careful it will seal your doom.



I kid you not it would make you shudder,
get too close and YOU'LL be a fish supper.



Boo!


Some detailed photos of the vignette and the Hairy Angler Fish. I wanted the fish to be scary but have a cartoony feel - after all this is supposed to be a children's poem not a horror. The vignette is small, but aimed only to set the scene.






























Smile for the camera :)

Mr, Swordsman, You already have the votes you need, but I'll add mine to the list. Great job focusing on what's important and not overbuilding. I really love that angler fish. Outstanding work. ~Dave

This turned out great, Dude! I like the little vig, but especially that fish--Yikes! Although your take on the category is what's pretty much expected, it's done well, and you get my vote.

This is a very fun MOC. I like the incorporation of childrens' poetry and the glow piece use was effective.

  September 28, 2011
This shows that you can handle several styles & technics brilliantly. 1) Simple vignette 2) New/different usage of some pieces 3) Hybrid technic/bionicle/brick fish (I luv that fish!) 4) Creative use of camera poses & lighting SUPERB! :)

Thanks Andrew. The lighting was very difficult. I am happy with most of the photos. It took several photo sessions as you can tell. Glad you like the poem :)

I think that I fought a boss like that hairy angler fish in one of the old Darius games. Anyway, good job on the MOC, MortalSwordsman. The poem really fit the scenes, too.

Nice work. Your piece fits the category beautifully. The angler fish is very menacing and well built. Your coral scene say a lot with a little. I like that it is not over done so the attention goes to the Creature.

That title pic is priceless!!! Love it so much. The angler fish is brilliant. Really scary but also kind of cute too... since its inspired by a children's story I think that works really well for the moc, and the colours of the vig and how you've lit it really help with cartoonizing it. Very very well done. I love this contest!

Brilliant! That first picture is great, the glowing fish looks creepy and its eyes are awesome. I also love all the coral details, this moc is beautiful yet ugly ;) . Lighting for photos is a real pain, i've very nearly finished mine but the photos are proving really difficult to get the results i'm after. The one thing i would suggest is to get some better photos of the fish, try it on the black background maybe? This is great and is going to be tough to beat, good luck
