"The 12 Signs of the Zodiac." You know... Leo, Scorpio, Gemini and so on. Choose any ONE of the 12 Zodiac signs and build a moc incoorporating that ONE sign into it. (in case you haven't noticed, you're only allowed to choose ONE of the twelve signs). No size limits.
About this creation
I chose Pisces mainly because it's my birthday's Zodiac.
Here is the MocOlympic's Homepage


Figuring out how I was going to make the symbol for Pisces was difficult, but I figured it out in the end.

Incorporating the fish was extremely difficult, and was considering giving it up, but then the build would have been too bland, but around the end, they started to look like I wanted them to.

A little bit of border action here.

The water wasn't how I originally envisioned it because I wanted to use studs and give it more of a "splash" effect. But simply didn't have enough of the right colored studs to make it happen. But I'm still pleased with the outcome of the water.

Another full build shot.

Anyway, thanks for looking! And please remember to rate and comment! I'm hoping this gets me to round 2!

this is a truly great job, I really like the details of the base, and how you've managed it into a great result. Awesome, man!

The sign and the fish are nice, but the water needs work. The technic pins aren't very convincing.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Unfortunately, with a score of 20, you have not made round 2. Great effort though, keep on building!
Wow, only 20, huh? Oh well, I guess there always the MIT to look forward to.

Quoting Delatron 3000 Good part use with the technic pins for water - that's utilising the resources you have to achieve something! Good luck with the judges.
Thanks Delatron!

Interesting PU for the water. The pictures should be brightened a lot, though. Good luck. -LB Jr.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist The concept has a lot of potential, but I don't think you quite nailed it here. The fish are a tad blocky, and I'm not sold on the water. I think that scaling the build up a bit would have allowed for better detail, but all the same a nifty MOC.
I agree with you on all accounts. This build was out of my comfort zone by a long shot. I couldn't help the water since I'm extremely short on blue bricks of any kind. But, I put what I could into this build, and I hope it can get me to round 2!

Quoting Halhi 141 Nicely done. The way you made the sign is nice, but I think that the MOC might be a bit too simple and small. I think that it could be better if you spent more time on it.... Still, good luck!
You're right, it is simple. But the category had me completely stumped. So I just put together the first thing that came to my head.

Amazing! I think you should make it to the second round at least. My entry is half way done. I was born under Scorpio (the coolest one) but think the stars controlling you is a bunch of crud.

The astrological sign looks great, and I love your border! However, there is something you ought to know: in the rules for R. 1, it says "no adding titles to your creations." This might raise some issues with the judges...

This is Awesome, Jacob! The sign is completely accurate, and those fish are amazing! I like the water technique as well. Best of luck with the judges! Oh, though I don't believe in the Zodiac, I'm born under the sign of Pisces as well!
