MOCer Cup R2: Under the Sea
About this creation




Hello everyone! Here's my entry to Round 2 of the MOCer Cup .My opponent is Oliver Becker and here is his entry , good luck to him! My category was memories of the ocean. I'm pretty happy with my entry although I was rushing to finish it as I was on vacation for half of the time so I would've liked to add more detail and interest into it.

Quoting Oliver Becker Love the turtle, Connor! You're very creative with the bricks and this is a lovely MOC! It was a pleasure to have competed against you! This word "against" is a mess for me, so we all together here do so much for a fine entertainment for all the others... ;) Me old MOCer is still full of ideas and my fantasy is unbroken, and YOU'll have enough time to build further on and do it the same as me! Also still when I'm six feet under... ;) Cheerio!
Thanks! Good luck in round 2 :)

Quoting C Stucky This is one of the hardest decisions I've made as a judge. Your turtle is perfect, not only the head, but also the rest of the animal. I love your rock-work and style. The inclusion of the surface and the white at the edges of it are a particular favorite. However, it came down to the nitty-gritty and Oliver's build just had more to offer in regards to parts usage and color IMO. Such a hard decision... would have like to see you both go on.
you didn't really state who you're voting for but I'm assuming you're voting for Oliver.

Thank you everyone and judges! I agree about the lack of interest underwater but I didn't have time to add more stuff.
Quoting MCLegoboy !
thank you so much! I wish you were a judge :P but instead I lost 0-3.

Realy neat as a whole. I would try to use different color for rocks above and beneath sea level. Who knows if it looks OK. Maybe only DG under and DBG above.

Although not a judge, I prefer your build compared to Oliver. It's more minimal with key focus points. And if I saw a sea turtle come that close to me in the wild, I'd certainly not forget it. I think you did a wonderful job with this build. Fancy parts use wouldn't have done it for me, the overall composition is what matters here and if I were a judge, you would get my vote.

Both of you used some fascinating techniques, but Oliver's build better captures the "details that will make us miss our past vacations" part of the category, so he won my vote.

Awesome! This looks great. I agree, the minifig leg for the turtle's head is a nice idea. Great work :-)

Ok, first off, phenomenal builds from both of you! It's awesome seeing you guys face off in this category given your very different building styles. I also appreciated both of your usages of mini fig parts, Oliver with the arm on the crab and Connor with the leg on the turtle. Oliver: I love the colorful, playful energy of your build. You could drop this build in a fish tank and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Connor: that turtle is ace! Ive never seen a leg used better. I love the clean, stark lines of your build, and the simple color blocking. It's got a bit more gritty, serious feel that I really like. In the end, this was a very, very close match. I just slightly preferred the more nostalgic, dreamlike landscape of Olivers build, so my vote will go to him on the slightest of margins. Awesome job to both of you, and good luck with the other judges!

Agree on the underwater detail. Is that a minifig leg for the turtle head? Very creative.

Well built and detailed, and that water technique is awesome as well! I have to agree with James though, some more undersea life would really help make it pop a bit more. But it's a fantastic MOC, and best of luck to you.

Its interesting. I'd like some better shots of the turtle. It looks to narrow from this angle. It would have also been nice to get a bit more life on the sea floor, or at least something more interesting topographically.
