M.O. Round 6: George G. vs Jason Corlett
George G. vs Jason Corlett in the Semi-final Round of the 2011 MOColympics: "Forced Perspective".
About this creation
Welcome all to my semi-final entry for the 2011 MOColympics where I am facing Jason Corlett!

We are building in the category:
"Forced Perspective: Create a false sense of scale in your moc. We're leaving this category WAY open to allow for creative freedom. As long as your forced perspective is the focus of your moc, you're good to go."

The past fortnight has been very hectic. Very hectic indeed. I've had 3 exams, masses of art coursework and events to attend to regarding by Birthday. Anyway, I won't keep whining and I'll get on with showing you my entry...

We're taking a look at 3 very special places around the world, in forced perspective style :)



Destination 1) Welcome to India! The Taj Mahal sure is beautiful.



Destination 2) Welcome to England! Just look at that wonderful London skyline.



Destination 3) Welcome to Spain! Fancy watching a Bull Fight, or Corrida as they like to say (they do like to say Corrida, right? Or I made one big mistake...) :P



"Not so big and menacing now, eh Mr Bull!"



From left to right, we have Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye and St Paul's Cathedral.



For this round, I had lots of ideas and I couldn't decide on just one, so I went and built 3 different scenes each using a slightly different style of forced perspective.
Good luck Jason and I hope you all appreciate my attempt :)

I'm sorry to see you didn't make the final George, this is a wonderful entry (most popular of the round! Bravo!) and well worthy of all its attention. Best of luck with all your future mocs. You've taken massive leaps in skill over the past few months of this contest and for a person your age to achieve round 6 in the MOs you must be absolutely squealing in delight! Well done on an awesome set of mocs and good luck for next year's MOs which I foresee you will take it out!

Aww gutted mate, you had a stunner of a run right throughout the entire competition, a true inspiration to all those who think age is a barrier! Come next year I'm sure the force you bring will be challenging to many more on every level! Well done on getting to R6 and enjoy your Top 4 prize! We all know you deserved it. ~Thoy Oh yeah, I'll have to think about the Mocathlon'12 idea, I may try to conjure up a Team ANZLC. If not though it would be great to join forces :)

Brought in as the tie-breaker judge...I can see how this round ended in a tie! I loved that you did a variety of scenes showing your skill with forced perspective (the micros of London landmarks were phenomenal, and the bull was equally as amazing). However, my eye could pick out the forced perspective where as on Jason's I couldn't...that gave him the edge in this category. He gets my vote.

Great stuff George, again a strong showing. I love the fact you got three variations on the theme in and each has different highlight points. I love the bull, genius little build, and the micro skyline (while using some license for the location of London landmarks!)is lovely. The very best of luck to you with the tie-breaker. For Queen and country!

Sorry for the delay, George (been moving, and it's just starting to settle down a bit). While I think you both did a wonderful job with the technique for FP, my vote is going to Jason. It was a very tough call this time around, but his strong composition and sense of action put it over the top for me. Best of luck with the tie-breaking vote, and well done.

I haven't looked at the other votes yet, so I have no idea if this contest has been decided yet. George, your concepts are great, and you've articulated the concept extremely well. In the end, however, I simply felt more "drawn in" to Jason's scene, so I had to award him my vote. Best of luck, and thanks for sharing!

Like I just told your opponent, this was the hardest decision for me during the olympics 2011, even harder than the one between Legohaulic and Leda. But it's time for a decision now: You got my vote. Your false vanishing point perspective in your first MOC is similar to his and both are brilliant. About your second MOC: I love the skyline (especially the London Eye and Westminster Abbey), but the angle associates that there's a bridge in Central London over the Thames that is twice as high as the Tower Bridge. I guess it's artistic licence, or is there really such a bridge (I'm just curious). Your third MOC really convinced me. There's a minor soft focus on the bull (very nice bull by the way) which makes the false perspective even more authentic.

Ole! Great microscale landmarks, but it's the bullfight scene that nails the FP best of all, really imaginative way to do that. If I was being picky I'd say that I'm pretty sure that there's nowhere in London where you can get all those landmarks in a single photo... but where's the fun in that? Go George!!

Well, George, ol' chap, Jason went for the massive scale and intricate details. Although your sets are smaller, I think they demonstrate the concept more dramatically. So you've got my vote! Cheers!

George, You really tied this creation together nicely despite the fact that it is three separate builds. I would have liked to see different depth of field used in the photography to aid in the FP, but you still earned my vote. ~Dave

George, these are just AMAZING! I really liked that London one. But I think Jason's moc just showed more of the FP that I (personally) was looking for in this round so he got my vote. Really though, it could go either way so good luck with the other judges! ~Chris.

Wow, the semi's already! Congratulations for getting this far, George. Now to your MOC. I really like it especially the London scene, you captured that beutifully. The only thing that could use improving in my opinion is the dome on the Taj Mahal. I don't think the shape of your interpretation was the same as the actual thing. But other than that, you deserve to go to the finals!
