An Undersea World
While creatures on land faced habitat destruction due to human settlement, the undersea world had largely remained intact. Until now...
About this creation








Realtor: "What a lovely place for a new neighborhood."





General views. The MOC is 32x32, plus a 2 stud wide black border.

















The rock by the shipwreck. It's hinged using a ratchet joint to create an interesting angle. Some of the other slopes are connected at angles as well.





Another view of the rock to better show the coral and sea grass designs.





The back view of the rock highlights some interesting texturing and shows part of the ratchet joint technique used.





Some sort of sand/sandstone formation.






Another view of the shipwreck and some seaweed.





More seaweed and scattered rocks.





Believe it or not, everything you see in the moc is connected in some way! Here you can see some of the techniques used to get the angles for the shipwreck.





A view of the jellyfish, sea snail, more rocks, and more seaweed.





The sea snail, which lacks eyes because I don't have the needed clip in lime green.





A view from above.





Some of the tiles removed from the rockwork to better show the techniques.





Snail's point of view.





Realtor/Construction Worker's point of view.






Technique used for the minifigures' stands. Since the flippers only have a lightsaber blade connection at the bottom, I had to attach them to the stand with a screwdriver.





Pirate skeleton, inspired by Finn tegotash's designs.






Construction worker.





The realtor. I had fun making her look as out of place as possible underwater with her suit and envelope.



For the Under the Sea Contest in The Contest Group.

The rockwork and the crashed boat are my two favorite parts of this MOC! Nice work, and keep building!

Quoting MCLegoboy ! I'm not too pleased to see "Gary" only because he is the same basic build as the one made be the LEGO Designer who made the set.
Actually he's a pretty different build. The shell pieces and lime green plate are the same, but the way the shell is made is different, I bulked it up some.

Originality: 7 Ah yes, "The r ape of the natural world," as Ian Malcom said in Jurassic Park's film adaptation. The ship is a bit of a cliche though. Techniques: 8 That Rock with the joint piece is really cool and it puts a big twist on rockwork, I wish you would have done that with the otherone. The grounds seem bare, but I suppose the less stuff you have to destroy, the better the sell will be. I'm not too pleased to see "Gary" only because he is the same basic build as the one made be the LEGO Designer who made the set. Make a hermit crab with those shell pieces, I'm sure it'd look cool. Presentation: 5 Easiest points to win ever. Total: 20/25 Good job.

Originality: 7.5/10. Everything is cohesive, its obviously an ocean scene, and all the colors fit together smoothly. The sunken pirate ship has been done many times before, but the realtor coming to check the property helps to make up for that. Techniques: 9/10. I like the way you fastened the flippers to the ground, and using the racket joint for the rockwork is ingenious. Also, making the coral out of minifig arms is a great idea. My only quibble would be that the seaweed is rather repetitive and the dark tan rockwork is boring compared to the rest of the build. Presentation: 4.5/5. You have the required links to the Contest Group, and the black border lends a distinguished air to it. Some of the pictures are just a little too close and out of focus, but despite that, this is still a great build!

Quoting Sean B I love all of the little details in this. Is the treasure chest included in the property, or will the current owners be taking that?
Perhaps the realtor or construction worker might take it...

Thanks everyone!
Quoting Director Sam (Formerly Sam Skywalker) Awesome creation. Is that Gary the Snail??? :P
Quoting Michelle N amazing work!!! is that Gary?
Nope, though it does use the old Gary's shell. I added a few plates to the shell to bulk it up a bit, though, and I couldn't attach his eyes since I don't have the 1x1 clip in lime green.

Looks great! I can tell you that this is very realistic with confidence, because, well, I live where I live! This is exactly how the ocean floor looks, mostly sand with pockets of coral here and there. So great job in realism, and good luck in the contest!

Wow! I love the wreckage! I also really like those rocks and the way you built them.
