Underwater City
My entry for the thirteenth two-week challenge in The Contest Group, which I will be providing a link of below. Anyway we were supposed to build something under the sea so I chose to build a city! Enjoy the MOC, please!
About this creation
Link to The Contest Group

By the way in the main pic I tried a little forced perspective by making it look like a city is in the distance. Anyway, to the MOC.....



This is my very first time making an underwater MOC, so it was a bit of a challenge for me. However I think I succeeded. Here is the whole MOC.



This is the main part of the MOC, the coral reef. Isn't it colorful? The hobbit hair technique and 1 x 1 toothed plate techniques to make coral are both Max Pointner's by the way. I think I invented a new coral technique, though. I put the brown 1 x 1 round brown bricks into flower stems and they look very much look coral. Also that trans clear dish piece with the fire piece sticking out is supposed to be a jellyfish.



Another shot of the coral.



This building is supposed to be a house. There is seaweed growing over it, and it looks rather decorative, like vines on the side of a house.



I tried to include some interior, a bed was the first thing that came to mind. I thought the walls needed some decoration, so I added a map.



Here iis the microscale city that is supposed to look far away in the first shot. All the sand was cleaned out so there is barely any in the city.When I started building, I knew I didn't have enough parts to create even a few buildings, or even a whole house, unfortunately. I also said this is a city so I needed to include a city somewhere Forced perspective was the best of my choices.



This really tall building is supposed to be an elevator so that you could go back up to the surface. I really like the look of it.



Of course, what underwater MOC wouldn't be complete with a skeleton?



EDIT: This entry won the challenge!

Thanks for looking!

Quoting MCLegoboy ! Originality: 7 Well, at least it's not some Greek or Roman sunken city. It's quite modern. The build does seem a bit unbalanced due to there being no distinct middleground. There is Foreground, Middleground, and Background. Perhaps if there was a bigger area that showed more of the city's buildings, it would be more distinct. I like the idea of a Sea Elevator. Techniques: 9 Some of the minifig scale stuff, while being scarce is nust your standard bed. I've seen that Hobbit hair design, but great job giving credit so no penalty there, and those flowerstem and Jellyfish designs are fantastic. Presentation: 5 Simple and to the point. Photos look somewhat grainy, but everything is distinguishable and these would be the best for whatever camera you used. Total: 21/25 Nicely done.
Thanks! I use an iPad mini to take the pictures. It takes different quality pictures depending on the amount of lighting.

Quoting Alphonsus Liguori Originality: 7/10 The lost underwater city idea is sound, and all the buildings look appropriate. Some of the coral does seem a bit out of scale, though, and the minifig-sized building makes the scene seem rather unbalanced. Techniques: 10/10. Wow! Spectacular style, marvelous PU, and wonderful coordination of colors! Presentation: 5/5. Your writing has correct grammar and spelling, and is interesting to read into the bargain. Also, you have the required link to The Contest Group. Stellar job!
Wow, thanks!

Looks good. I like the coral technique that you made. I'm not sure about the hair, though, aside from the hobbit hair, none of it is really convincing... Still nice job!
