About this creation
My entry to round four of The Tourney
My category is "Fury of the Elements."
Guild: Warriors of the North
Opponent: Timothy M
Bracket 1

I opted for a stormy ocean, with waves crashing on the rocks and wind blowing around. I added trans black to the water to make a dark stormy atmosphere, and used larger pieces to make it a bit choppy. Also, for all of you in the pacific Northwest, this will be at Bricks Cascade in Portland.

Wow! Really amazing rockwork and a really clever arch. My favourite part is the minifigure though, I really like seeing capes used in that way. It's a shame you didn't have more time to make the water a bit less loose... It doesn't really get the whole 'fury' vibe across to me... still, really cool waterspout!

Your build is well-composed, technically good, dramatically presented, and accomplishes everything I hoped to see in this challenge. Few builds are designed with such an eye for visual effect, and I'm glad to give you my vote in this round.

Nice job! You really pulled off the atmosphere and mood well, all it would need is some lightning, heh. Have a vote.

Not perfect, but still good. You get my vote.

While at first glance I thought this was going to be easy to decide, looking closer changed that. I really loved Tim's FP and function- it was a great idea, and I think that his idea was more original than yours. However, while your idea might have been more simple, I thought both your build was more polished, and your build better fulfilled the category. Honestly, I don't generally like straight rock work without anything else to compliment it, and one thing that IMO could have been improved was making the rocks a bit more realistic- in certain areas it looks like there's a bit of grey vertical striping. Overall though, I thought your execution of your idea was excellently done- looking at your build at first glance I could practically feel cold wind blowing in my face, and sonorous waves clashing against wet rock- and in the end, that's why I'm giving you my vote. Congrats on moving on! ^^

Is it just me, or does this resemble Moses splitting the sea?

Awesome! The water technique works great, and the minifigure matches the scene really well. Epic!

I know that the word is overused, but this is epic! Reminds me of Moses...

Well done!

I know I left you a comment on Flickr already, but I must say, that stone arch is really good! I should try that technique sometime.

Quoting Halhi 141 This was a close one. One note that I'd give to both of you: I feel like you used too many loose pieces. Sometimes, unconnected sections can work well, but in these two entries, they seem like an overly simple way to approach a difficult topic. However, in the end my vote goes to you; your rockwork is really good, and even if I don't like how the storm effect was so reliant on loose pieces, you actually managed to almost convey the storm even without the water through just the dramatic layout of the rocks, which looks really nice.
Yeah, I hadn't originally intended loose water, but I was crunched for time, so on the last day I through some loose bricks in.

I did see this on Flickr but I love that rock-work! Really well done Micah! The look of wind pushing the rags on the wizard guy is also a great effect! :)
