MocOlympics R2: Stormbringer vs Nick Nitro Brick
You need to tame the beast if you want to play it..
About this creation
For the 2011 MocOlympics

My opponent, Nick Nitro Brick and his entry .


First off I want to apologize to the judges for making another dragon.

I really wanted to make something different outside of my comfort zone during the contest. But musical instruments?! Gaah!





The best part of thinking outside of the box to me is some of the bizarre ideas that come into mind, and of course I just had to add some kind of twist to the category.

I came up with the idea of dragonizing the guitar, after seeing some inspirational custom instruments elsewhere.





The guitar is mainly made up of SNOT, which was really annoying to accomplish due to frustrating uneven gaps.

Originally I was going to have two small dragon head mosaics at it's shoulder, but I didn't have enough time to perfect it.



Unfortunately because it's full of SNOT and has no proper stability, it would break apart if I were to pick it up and play (plus it would bite me).

(Luckily I don't think I'm being judged on that, err.. maybe?)



A closer show of the dragon's head. In the next round I "promise" not to make another one.



Thanks for viewing my work everyone! It might not be my personal best, but I think it works out. Oh and sorry for the bad background, I didn't want to completely ruin the photos with Gimp.

Good luck to everyone, particularly Nitro.

That's just awsome! Some more strings would not go amiss, but the idea and epicness of it is fantastic.

The song, "Unforgiven" of Metallica comes to mind. Gene Simmons could a guitar like this.

Everytime I see this, I think of the show Metalocalypse! Haha! This is so HARD! Love the way you went with this theme. The chains for strings is a really cool idea as well. It really adds to that Heavy Metal image!

Ah yes, the rarely seen and oft misunderstood 2-string bass, an instrument only a genuine metal master can perfect! LOL A seriously wicked axe, worthy of any true metal-head. Good luck in the next round.~H

Looks like the perfect guitar for DragonForce to play Through the Fire and Flames on :-D Brilliant work, colours work so well together, and the decorations are very fitting to the theme :-)

well, the only reason I made it bland is because I didn't have a wide variety of pieces in trans like you have in regular bricks. if I could have, I would have.

Congratulations, Stormbringer, you got my vote. The idea of fusing an instrument and a dragon is very original, especially by altering the whole shape of the guitar. In addition to that, the colours are well chosen and placed, especially on the guitar's body.

I can just imagine it playing "Highway to Hell" on it. Amazingly stunning build!

Quoting Yuri Fassio You nailed this build! But if I were you I would be a bit worried by your opponent's concept.
The concept could win, but the build itself was a little too bland and quickly assembled (no hard feelings Nitro).

Quoting Nick Nitro Brick ooooohhhh, how big is it? (no comment from you phip) could you dhow a comparison with a fig.
Well that would be against the rules if I added another picture with a minifig comparison (nice try kiddo). But the guitar itself not quite life-sized like a real one.

Woh, this is the coolest guitar I have ever seen! The idea is really awesome, and it's so original too (or I haven't researched dragon guitars enough). Amazing job on this; even if I could "tame the beast" I doubt I could play this guitar, I have no musical talent.

After seeing it was a dragon, I noticed that it looked pregnant...or fat. Very cool build though, love the use of SNOT. :)

...And it rose from the firey pit and played a note so striking that sorcerer who summoned the mighty beast had his face melted. Excellent work on this, it is incredibly creative and amazingly good-looking! The only thing that bothers me is how short the neck is, but that is minor compared to the sheer awesomeness that this is. You should have this displayed somewhere.

I'm sure there's a pun here about your name and how you "Bring it!" like a storm but I... can't think of a clever one right now. If you make it to the next round, NO DRAGONS! haha As far as making it to the next round... you're one third of the way there, you got my vote! Good luck with the other judges! ~ Chris.
