Nick's great linear-forced-perspective entry!




UH! Bright lights! Sheesh! ... Okay, okay, I'll get to it! I'll talk! ... *sigh* So I was going through my Dad's stuff, y'know after his death and all. Found this flash drive. I put it into the computer, and all that showed up was a jumble of code. End of Story. ... Owwwww! Awww! Okay, not the end of story. So I know a little about hacking, and I was able to pull up this:


Mission 232 - "Dawn and four gone."

#SEC34-6755-08D

Time-01:30 hours

Location: Los Angeles, CA


That's it. End of st- ... OKAY!!! ST- STOP WITH THE ELECTRIC STUFF!!!! I'LL SHOW YOU THE PICTURE!!!...





NOW that's it! That's ALL I KNOW! But now I am kinda curious... Who did you say you work for aga- ... OKAY!!! NO ELEC- LEC- TRIC STUFF!! I'M SORRY I ASKED!! NOW JUST LET ME GO!!!...

Poor guy.

Now a little bit behind this entry.

I guess you could classify this with my last two MocOlympics entries in the "Have a good build idea, work on it until two days before the deadline, scrap that build, and build this instead" category. Yeah. So at the beginning of this round, I was thinking about building the Linear Perspective (basically forced perspective in 2D) project that I just finished in my Digital Arts class that I'm taking at my community college. My take on that assignment was a spaceship flying into a wormhole (which also happened to be the vanishing point! :P). Then I realized that I was sick of looking at that project, so I scrapped that idea. Then I decided to build the iconic image of Babe Ruth standing in the middle of Yankee Stadium for his last time in 1948. Two days ago, I decided that I just wasn't feeling it (again) and that I would build something else. Since I already had all of my ~500 minifigs assembled for the baseball stadium that never happened, I thought of building something like a futuristic sniper rifle in a high-up windowsill being aimed at a target in the cyberpunkish streets below. And that eventually turned into this!


I'd also like to just say that this has been a really great contest. What other LEGO contest lasts almost a semester?!?! Nick, you and a lot of other guys have been churning out a whole lot of amazing entries. Good job. *pat on back* :D

Okay, so enough talk...

The judges don't know a winner when they lay eyes on it. (Well, Luke did. ;) ) Man, this fits the category SO WELL. Not to mention, a car on a road is about as stereotypical as you can get. :1 Incredible entry, and congrats on getting so far.

This is an incredibly close match, so I'm glad it's already decided. Your FP is well executed, if not quite as complex as Nick's. What I really like is the composition and lighting of the photo, you really nailed it. Incredible work, and congratulations on getting this far!

Another superb entry from you. The skyline is really evocative. I'm afraid Nick built that car though! Sorry you didn't get my vote.

It's a tough decision, like it is often the case in the later rounds of the MocOlympics. To make a long story short, I vote for Nick, but you almost got me with your bucket wearing fig. I'd have loved to see the Babe Ruth MOC. The reason for my decision is this: Your creation is excellent without a doubt, just like Nick's, but he lifted the meaning of 'forced perspective' to a new level.

I honestly think this will be the hardest matchup to judge this round as you and Nick have both done great builds. I love the variety of scales and the construction on that fig is quality - and the fact it has a detailed front even though it didn't need it for your FP shot is great! Good luck with your judges.

I'm counting at least 4 different scales on view here - you've certainly nailed the FP! Lots of depth to the scene and great detail work, especially on the foreground stuff. Good luck!

Not an easy category to get, was it ? My own build wasn't my first attempt by any means... anyway, good job here, good luck to us both!

Really nice MOC. With FP I like to see a photo not from the FP angle to show the setup and different scales.

this is not just forced perspective, but 3 levels of forced perspective, minifigs in background, marine in mid ground, and gun in foreground! WOW, good work. The detail in the midground marine in really nice, and I like the storyline lead in with this MOC. Good Luck in the judging.

Great job Elliott! I love the fact that this is something I want to see more of. I can easily picture a series of mocs based on this. The guns are fantastic, I especially love the technique with the clip plates. The guy looks righteously fit for battle and hiding to snipe. Love the texture you created with his suit. Excellent and best of luck with the judges!
