M.O. Round 3: David. Vs Jacob Huppi
About this creation
For Round 3 of the 2013 MocOlympics.

Link to my Skilled Opponent: Jacob Huppi.

David. vs Jacob Huppi
Mighty Empire: Build us a creation from Roman times. A battle, a house, a boat, whatever you want. Of course, the more historically accurate the better.

This scene is set at Angel Bridge, spanning the Tiber River, in Rome, Italy. The bridge is also known as Ponte Sant'Angelo. It was constructed sometime between 134 and 136 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian. It connects Ponte with the rion of Borgo.

David was whisked away early this morning by his father for a weekend of hiking. It was left to me, dear old mom, to finish uploading these pictures. He did not have opportunity to caption each picture he took, but did explain some things as he was showing me this most impressive creation this morning. I have added a few captions, from what I was told. I hope I have done everything satisfactorily. All the best to David and Jacob Huppi - and the rest of you builders! Enjoy!

The Tiber












Overlooking the Tiber from the bridge
























Angel holding the lots and clothing from the crucifixion of Christ.






Is that a spear with a sponge? Dipped in vinegar, no doubt!






















































Down the depths...






...to the wine cellar!























Best of luck to you, Jacob!


Hope You Liked It!

Thanks For Looking!

C&C Welcome!
Soli Deo Gloria!

Fantastic scene and very well detailed! The boat in the, the vines creeping along the wall, and the wine cellar are all excellent features!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist
Yep, I can totally see what you mean. Trust me, the end result I wanted was a bit more detailed up top. :) The bottom just took longer than expected, and filling in the big hollow void in the back was trickyer than thought. :/ Thanks though!
Quoting Stuart Lucas
Thanks man! Glad someone commented on my Amphoras, I'm really proud of them. :)

Well done on progressing... I agree with what Luke said about the blank areas, but the amphoras and the wine cellar really won me over. Great build!

Nice work, but ultimately I feel that your opponent achieved the Roman effect better and he gets my vote. While your foliage and the wall look very good, I think a more brick-built boat and details on the vast empty space above would be nice. Still, good work.

Quoting The judges
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!I'm shaking. I really, really am. I'll try to pack some more details in next time. :) THANK YOU!

This is not an easy vote and I'm very indecisive. Your creations seems to be a little bit out of proportion, but some parts are good. You get my vote.
  October 15, 2013
I like the ambition you showed taking this on. Great features in the bridge and river side. A little spartan (couldn't resist the pun) here and there, but looks good as a whole. You get my vote.

Great work! SNOT would just top the cake off but, it's still breathtaking!

Yeah, I can see what others are saying about the top being a bit plain but you concentrated your time on other things and it shows in the details like the statues and the foliage, the riverbank and bridge. Good build and good luck to you!

Go right ahead! :D and yeah, I think I have like the best mom on the planet or something of the likes. Just sayin'. ;)

You have used some lovely details in this! Clever idea to use the brick panels under the bridge and keep the complex brickwork in the exposed areas where we can really see and admire it! What a great Mom you have too! Best of Luck! :)

Very nice David! And you got your mom to post it? She's a keeper! ;) It just wouldn't be Italian without a wine cellar. Clever idea. Great details all around. My only criticism would be to maybe tile the road like a cobblestone street, that way it would add a ton of interest and texture to the bare plates much like the beautiful walls. Love the statues and the vases. Good luck!

David's Mom here...the finishing touches were not meant to be as he was rushed out the door. I'm just thankful he got the pictures taken! (PS - to the one that made comment about the password, he wouldn't be on mocpages unless I did! *smile*)

While it's very impressive, I agree with Brick Boy, it's very plain, and needs way more detail...good luck anyways...

Not the best Roman model I've seen/thought of, but not bad at all. (Oh, you do know you compromised your building quality my giving someone else your account password...)

Great big build! The bridge and port our nice addition as well;) The upper ground level is a bit plain though:/ I can image some cobbled stone paths would add a bit more life. Perhaps some more citizens too;) Great build, though! Best of luck in the MO! ~Brick

The sheer size of this build really captured my attention. It has a lot of features, and overall a sick build! Well done!
  October 11, 2013
Awesome! I think you could of put some more stuff on the top of the castle thing but otherwise GREAT work. ~BD~
