Very Nicely Done, I Enjoy The Overall Style Of The MOC. The Technique You Choose For The Wings Was A Very Suiting The Spread Wing Look. The Addition Of The Light Blocks Emphasis The Fire Aspect Of The MOC, Very Nice Touch And Cranks Up The Presentation Factor. Nice Work On This. Also, While I Am Here, If You Happen To See This, I Have A Favor I Would Like To Ask Of You. Respond If Your Are Willing To Do Such A Task.
Mr. Swordsman, You take on fire, matched with the techniques use utilized was very creative. I really like the texture created through the separated plates. I would have liked to seen a little more texture on the rest of the body and in particular the claws/feet. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
The bright colors used really stand out, due to a black somewhat ominous background. The -not really connected plates, is outstanding, it resembles the slight interval of bird feathers. The idea is out of the box, plus the color scheme is phenemonal.
I believe that this, along with Annie Corder's entry, is one of my two favorite entries. Due to the way you did the wings, the bird seems to radiate a light of its own, and I love the light-up fire. Excellent work! I would give very good odds that you make it to the next round.
Thank you everyone for the kind comments. I have responded on your own mocs. I am planning a few ammendments before I add it to the contest so please feel free to comment - good or bad :). Good luck to everyone else.

Great job! looks like I could cut back on my heating bill with this on display in my room ;)

Thanks Tommy. It was a last minute decision but its for the 2011 MocOlympics. The link is in the text above. You need to register and post an entry by the 13 sept. Check out the home page and read the Round 1 thread. would love to see an entry from you.
Incredible! The wing effect is great, and the light brick usage is clever. Definitely looks like it's on fire. Well done, hope to see you but not meet you in round two just about to take photos of my entry :)
I LOVE HOW YOU DID THE WINGS!!!...even if they are extremely fragile, I also like the head ;) btw, i got a lego set today in China, so i have a little more legos than before XD I hope this gets you into round 2!!!
