MELO R1: "The Last Goodbye"
The Last Goodbye. A beautiful song for a beautiful story. The snow is falling and this adventure comes to and end. 'Where the road then takes me, I cannot tell. We came all this way, but now comes a day, to bid you all farwell.'
About this creation

I present my entry to the 2014-2015 Middle Earth Lego Olympics .

If you haven't heard it yet, the song "The Last Goodbye" performed by Billy Boyd truly is beautiful.
Here, listen to it while you look!


This is my depiction of Thorin Oakenshield's death from the last instalment of the Hobbit trilogy. The snowy scene is appropriate not only because to fit with the song, but also because of this time of year where many of us have cold weather or even snow.








The frozen river and waterfall were backlit to give and extra "frozen" look, here are some pictures that show it off:




I hope I captured a truly chilling model for you all! I experienced the cold depicted here first hand, as my build area is located outside, I worked in bellow freezing weather to finish it. It felt almost magical, it seemed as if the cold emanated from the moc I was creating! (I thought about building a quick desert vig. to see if I could warm up, but never got around to it :P)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building it!
Thanks to all the judges that make this contest possible! Special thanks to Ian for challenging us all and inspiring us to build greater!

-Eli

You could have used a rubber band on the dwarf's arms or at least give more effort in positioning of the said arms. Good backlighting job though, looks close to the movie.

Fantastic work, Eli! The MOC looks incredible when lit. I have to say, though, the pattern the SNOTed trans blue 2x1s make is rather unnatural...looks almost like a road. However, that really doesn't diminish the overall aesthetic. ;D
