The once-mighty city of Egaar Jabdala, the capital of the Mandil, has fallen into ruin. A decapitated statue lies by its pedestal, surrounded by squalor and decay. Slowly crumbling into dust, the buildings face the ravages of time.
Isn't backstory great?
I was thinking through some ideas after I got this category, and my brother suggested I build the ruins of Pompeii, since I have a lot of light bley pieces. So I did some searching on that new-fangled interweb, but didn't really find any pictures of Pompeii that I liked. Anyway, I decided to just build a ruin and give it some spin. And here it is. Boo-yah.
Hi Kevin, pretty nice execution with your creation. However, the idea slightly bothers me. It is one thing if you are placing bricks out in certain spots to create a certain look and another thing if you are just dumping bricks out. Despite whether or not you are actually did that, it certainly looks that way. Though as I said, for the idea, you didn't execute it too bad. Score: 2
In some places it king of looks like a bunch of scattered pieces maybe some more connections instead of just scattering the pieces would have helped. Still looks great though and really evokes the ruined theme. Score: 3
