Happy belated first MOCaversary!
ya, so it was my MOCaversary on Nov 3. Hard to believe it's been a whole year I've been on the Pages.
About this creation
So, I thought I'd do a quick roundup of some of my posts.
Of course, when I posted this:

I thought it would have a bazillion (WHAT?! spell check didn't pick that up as a wrongly spelled word?!) likes. Of course, since bazillion isn't a real number, I didn't get that many likes. ;)
Then of course I posted a contest entry:

which totally sucked. at the time I thought it was "the good stuff" but it's really crap. As Thomas Z. said about it, it had "potential", but now in my words, it is total crap.
So I moved on.
I'm pretty sure I got better at building, but only by stealing other builders' good ideas.

^this creation was HEAVILY inspired by Forte Noir. Check him out, he's pretty awesome.
After building lots of Forte stuff, I somehow managed to build this:

Even in LDD it looks pretty good. It's still my most popular creation, though I'm kind of wishing I could bump it back down...

^these guys are pretty sick. Someday I'd love to build them IRL. maybe after Christmas.

^short and sweet. By the time I'd built this, I'd definitely grown as a builder and as a person. I no longer expected my mechs to be "the good stuff."
Then I discovered the world of-- GUNDAM. I fell in love with that style, mimicking even more the styles of Forte Noir and Thomas Z. Poor poor LTE...

^Way to many thrusters. and again, I thought it was "the good stuff." Ha, lol.

^cool, but no built well. I was starting to grow out of LDD...

^this one transforms!
And then there were IRL BRICKS! DUN DUN DUN DUH!

^this was the Slizer. A pretty sweet mech. The first mech I built without LDD.

^cool, but the joints were so weak.
Then I discovered the work of Zizy. I was inspired-- NOT! I just started mimicking all over again.

bla bla bla bla bla MIMIC bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla

bla bla bla bla bla MIMIC bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla

^now this one really was inspired and not just a mimic. I think it had to much going on though.
Then I mimicked another great builder: sqieu. I have to say though, I sure am glad I did. otherwise I wouldn't have found the two styles I build in today.

^sqieu inspired. If you haven't heard of him, look him up on brickshelf. He's got some pretty sick stuff.

^my first non mecha creation. short and sweet, and CUTE as all get out. Well not really, but who's keeping score?

...

Then something amazing happened. a God Given Miracle! I found my own style.

^you can see bits and pieces of all my fave builders' styles, but in reality it is my own. You guys have no idea how good it feel to be able to say "this is my own unique style." I'd finally found "the good stuff." ;D

^my entry into the MOs. it didn't even get me into the MITs, however. I guess they were looking for something completely different.

^The Stahl. it means "steel" in German. Still my own style. BTW, I've been having trouble with naming my mecha lately. All the creative juices go into building the mecha, then there's nothing left to name it with. :(

^ARGH! WHAT IS THIS ABOMINATION?! Is it-- could it be?! IT IS! IT'S LDD! haha, say that out loud, it rhymes. Yah, so my return to building with LDD.

^The Lockesly. Named after one of Robin Hood's aliases. You know, because it's combat specialty is long range.

...

"Captain, uncharted territory ahead! Do we continue?"
"... Continue helmsman!"

^preview! SPOILER SPOILER

Well, that's about it. Hope y'all enjoyed it!

Quoting ariklego ...The Director! I have to say it's really amazing and exciting to see how far you've come, LTE. And I myself am rather glad that your personal style has just enough Western chunkiness for me to relate to it. Your Gundam builds usually sorta lost me. Now if I could just follow your example and get out of the Chunkblaster-mimicking rut I'm in and build something original...
hey hey, don't worry! just build and build and build and build until you find your own unique style! Thanks!
