Gollum's Capture
For months Aragorn has searched for Gollum. Over the wild lands he has hunted for this elusive creature. Just as he gives up hope and turns for Rivendell he finds the hunted creature, near a pool.
About this creation
Hey!

How’s your Memorial Day going??

I’ve actually had quite a crappy day but posting makes it a bit better. :D My LEGO account is screwed up, thanks a ton Google Chrome! I can’t sign in with ANY account…. Agh!

BUT I’m lovein’ this build. :D

Sooo yeah. I’m very, very happy with this build. Not just the rocks or the water or just part of it but all of it!!!

XD


On to the build:





Gollum at the pool. I really like how the water turned out!








One of my favorite waterfalls I’ve done so far







The little stream that feeds the waterfall








The transistion of the stream to the waterfall








I really like the olive green with the rocks… I think it looks pretty realistic too!





I used every dark green plate I had on hand for this. I have such a small supply of those parts… :’(





‘Shrooms! Thanks for Nathan for this idea of the extra short mushrooms!






Some random rock XP





The preciousss is lost! LOOOOSSSTTT!!!!!!!!!






A Cliffside view of Gollum






The build, no ‘figs





The ‘figs



Thanks for checking out this build! Comments, likes, and critique are all welcome!

Soli Deo Gloria

Quoting Sean-Thomas Mahoney Great job,Is that straight out of the book, or the extended edition of the movie (haven't seen it)
YOU HAVEN"T SEE IT!?!?! XP No. It's from a little fan made movie called "Hunt For Gollum". It was really good for a fan made movie.

Very nice landscaping! I think, though, that taking out the blue parts in the waterfall would look better. Still, this is great!

Nice work Graeme! The rockwork looks very nice! While the waterfall is cool, the blue doesn't fit. Splashy waterfalls like these are always a nice white color, but never blue.

Quoting Nathan Pownell Dude, this is seriously cool!! LOVE the waterfall, man! The texturing on this baby is cray-cray!! Nice work, and thanke for da mention. :) (By the way, you know you've uploaded this twice, right? O_o)
I did? O_o Delete!! XD Sure thing man! It was your idea!

Quoting Evan Botkin Nice work! I like the pool and the SNOT rockwork. Only problem is Gollum was captured in a marsh but this is still pretty close. Nice work!
Oh really? I was basing this off of the short fan film "Hunt For Gollum"... Thanks though! I'll do that sometime and add it to this creation. :)

Quoting Mark McPeek Wow! Great work, man! I love the detailing, rocks, and waterfall! One of your best so far, in my opinion! The only thing I'd change would be the blue in the waterfall. It looks ok, but usually blue water shows depth. I personally find that clear works better for the waterfall. Other than that, it's very realistic! Great work once again!
Thanks Mark! I felt that the white waterfall looked a little boring. It didn't really go with the rest of the build... BUT that's just preference. :) You're like my pro-LEGO-MOCer advice person... :D

Very cool Graeme! I love the water! I think you posted this twice but I'm not sure. The rocks turned out very nice! Remember the fallen. Great work yet again!

Very nice. The rocks and water is very good. I love how you didn't just make the floor one colour. Very clever! Well done! =)

Wow!! That is Awesome! I've never seen a build about this part! I really like that you can use your imagination for the things that are not in the movie! I really like the rockwork on it! The Waterfall and water are very cool also! Keep building! God Bless!

Amazing! Defiantly one of your best MOCs yet! The rocks look great, but the waterfall steals the show! Sorry about your LEGO account, that's gotta suck.

Awesome stuff! The ground layering and texturing in particular is brilliant. Though I agree with Mark on the blue in the waterfall, the shaping and transition is fantastic! Great build!

And this is the main reason I don't use Chrome, I use plain old internet explorer, and my account works fine. Ah well. Great build man! Sorry about you having a bad day, I've had a fair one so far. Anyway, did you know that ever since I brought RED up on the gallery an epidemic of RED has caught on. I wonder if the same principle would go for some of the REALLY heavy stuff I listen too.
