A year ago today, I joined MOCpages. I've had a great time and improved quite a bit.
About this creation
(Click the photos to go to the builds)


A year ago, I joined MP for the 2013-14 MELO. This build:

didn't even get me past round 1. No surprise, really. It's just a bunch of rocks, and not very good ones at that. But this got me on MOCpages, which has really been a fantastic experience.

After MELO, I built and posted several small builds. None of them were spectacular.

My favorite, the greeble-bot:


Then this life-sized TV remote was my first MOC over 20 likes.


I posted this pistol, which I still think is pretty cool.


Then, in March, came the 2014 MocAthalon.

I built 8 entries (one of which didn't count) for it. 8 builds in 30 days. My life that month was pretty LEGO-intensive. Anyway, here are my entries, some good, some not so much:

Category: Escher.


Category: Civilian mecha. I still cringe when I see this build.


Category: Monochrome.


Category: Bookends. I really like the concept of this build, but I could have executed it a bit better.


Category: Frank Lloyd Wright. Not the most interesting choice of building, but it's pretty accurate.


Category: Forced perspective. Gotta love that eagle.


Category: Future tech time. For some reason, my crazed mind thought building a life-sized helmet would be a good idea. It doesn't look that great, but come on. It's wearable!


Category: Serf's up! I built and entered this on March 31, since there was some confusion as to whether the last day of March counted for the contest. Turns out it didn't, so this build didn't go towards my team's score.


My team built 29 out of a possible 30 builds and came in third in the contest. Not too shabby for our first time! Anyway, the MA was a really great experience, and I improved a lot because of it.

I kind of took it easy for the next few months, only posting a few small builds. The only notable one isn't a build, but an enormous glossary that I compiled of a lot of the terms used by FOLs. (Don't know what a FOL is? Check out the glossary! :P)

Sometime along here, I started a blog: Rambles of Orange. It's about anything and everything that strikes my fancy, a lot of which is LEGO-related. Go and check it out! (Shameless self-advertisement, I know).

On a vacation in the summer, I went to two LEGO stores and got lots of new pieces which showed up in my next builds. During the summer, I built some si-fi creations which I'm really pleased with.




And then along came this. By far my most popular creation, with 84 likes and 2400 visitors.


Then a small medieval build:


In late August/early September, I joined the 2014 MOColympics. I got 4 rounds in, and had an absolutely wonderful time.

Round 1: Category: The pirate's home life.


Round 2: Category: Crusoe in NY. Not my greatest build. I'll leave it at that.


Round 3: Category: Signifying nothing! (Shakespeare). I really like this one. It's my biggest build to date, and I think it turned out quite well.


Round 4: Category: "And I'd have gotten away with it." (Scooby Doo) This category was quite a curveball for me. I procrastinated for most of the ten days, and built the majority of this in one day. My opponent, Vlad van Hoek, knocked me out of the contest in this round.



And then, a couple days ago, I posted this. Sheer photo wizardry.



Well, that's it! It's been a great year, and I have improved enormously. Here's proof. When I started building in summer 2011, my first MOC was this:


And now, almost 4 years later, I'm building Bag End again: MELO WIP

I'll let those pictures speak for themselves.

Here's my Flickr stream, which has some content I haven't posted here yet. And here's another link to my blog. I'd really appreciate if you'd check it out, maybe drop a comment or two.

Anyway, it's been a great year, and I'm looking forward to many more!

And most importantly,
Soli Deo Gloria!

Oh WOW. You have improved insanely much. When I saw the VTOL, and later when I saw the Moria build, I thought those were the work of some experienced AFOL on MOCPages. I would never have guessed you built so much better in just a year.
