MOCpages is having a contest called Middle-Earth LEGO Olympics (MELO), and round 1 starts on April 22nd! We are hoping for a great turnout! So please consider entering.
Here is a link to MELO 2017
Now for the build. I started out with the grassy part as a little scene for Bilbo. But as you can see I changed it a lot since then :) I made the whole thing in about three hours, and I'm quite happy with how the eye turned out.
Splendid job Carter! Being one of my all-time favorite movie series, I not only greatly appreciate this build, but I'm also filled with an odd desire to stop everything and watch the trilogy non-stop starting now... ;) Excellent work with the backdrop, the mountains look great (even with the BURPs that you used). Nice lighting work and overall shaping of the eye itself, the "flames" on the edges are beautiful in their creepiness. I also like the symbolism (or the personally derived symbolism) that the bright spot of green vastly separated from everything else elicits. Top notch perspective work there. Though time will not permit me to do such things, I wish you all the best in MELO, you'll do fantastic if past builds say anything... God bless, ~Promar~
