MELO R5 - Mr. Unknown vs John Snyder
About this creation
My entry to Round 5 of MELO (Wow, that sounds semi-impressive ;) ;) ;) )
Bracket: Barad-Dur
My opponent and his impressively large, detailed entry!
Category: Valinor

Ahem! *cough cough* Well, this is what I came up with during this time: the "ever-so-famous" trees of Valinor/Valor or however they're called (they're in the land of Valinor, so... that's that). Telperion and Laurelin, which gave light over... everything... until an evil elf poisoned them by the use of Ungoliant, the mother of Shelob. Anyways, this is what I attempted to depict, but even with all the messy textures, I'm not sure it came out to my liking. Nevertheless, here be it.

Unedit for "verification"


Thanks for viewing. - God Bless

You're a painter with the bricks, MU! Your composition of the colors is exelent! Go your way like you've done 'til now, 'cause you already acquired to be an original with the bricks now! :)

Hi there, Your opponent gets your vote. His build is fantastic. I like your trees, but the total look is a bit empty. Greetz, Elio

Great choice to do these trees, and I like that you went with brick-built leaves! I especially like the one on the right :) It was a pleasure competing against you, congrats on making it to the semi-finals! :)

Oh, this just screams "Valinor"! However, your opponent's build was larger, and as a result, showed more techniques, interesting parts usage, etc. So in the end, your opponent got my vote. thanks for participating in MELO 2017!

I like what you have here, but your opponent's build really blew me away, so he has my vote.

Quoting Jacob Syrups ...the straightness of the trunks makes them untreelike. Good luck!
I was hoping to be able to make some "wicked" roots or something, but I didn't have the time to experiment and risk injurying the foliage. --poor planning. Much appreciated!

I also like the leaves, but the straightness of the trunks makes them untreelike. Good luck!

Quoting Reese Hawthorne
Truth be told, it was more lack of time-management and stability in the tree (second mostly) to hold the leaves and keep the shape. Wish I could have had more time to really detail it, but it is what it is.

Very nice! I love the tree/leaf part and the landscaping is great. Nice job

Very nice work on those trunks and the landscaping! The leaves look good, but my biggest issue is the fact that the leaves as a whole are quite small. I think they ought to have been larger (part availability probably stunted you; I can understand that). Good luck in Round 5!

I really like the end effect of your tree foliage texturing, it's an inventive and successful effort! Good luck!
