MELO R1: Beorn's Abode
Well I know this is a bit early for a MELO entry but I was so excited I used almost all my free time on this. Hope you enjoy. Please know I based this off the book.
About this creation
Here is a link to MELO's home page.


The Dwarves waiting for their turn to go inside.














Wait, it has an interior.













After many hours of hard toilsome work work I came out with this :). First off I want to say that I really enjoyed making this build, and I hope you like it as much as I do. Most of this build is pretty self explanatory, but I wanted to mention that the doors do in fact open. And the light tan things hanging from the tree are supposed to be beehives, also the whole in the roof is far letting smoke out (as said in the book). I also really like how the black rafters turned out (also stated in the book). The building on the right is a stable (if you had not realized that yet). And just in case anyone was wondering why it does not have a gate is because to Beorn animals are like people, so I did not see a need to put a gate on. The tree I'm quite proud of, because I used to have a lot of problems making non snot trees look good. I don't have a whole lot to say other than, thanks to my sisters for letting me borrow some vegetation (flowers and apples).

To God be the Glory,

Carter

Sorry, should have replied sooner but I didn't see your comment. The Tree stands out in a good way :)

Love it! I like the dwarves waiting outside to come in two at a time and not overwhelm Beorn...I understand why it couldn't be done this way in the movie, but it's one of the more charming parts of the book to me. I also love the tree and the beehives! Great job!

Quoting Beardless Dwarf (Evan) Nice entry! The tree really stands out. I feel like this seems to have stretched the limits of your collection a bit, but it is a good entry nonetheless :)
In response to the stretching of my collection, I did in some places stretch parts of my collection, but I wanted to make at it least kinda big. And when make things big I tend to stretch my collection. As for the tree, when you said it stood out, is that in a good or bad way. Thanks.

A splendid start to what will hopefully be a slue of fantastic entries from everybody this year! I particularly like the interior.

It's a very nice and book-acurate scene! One suggestion I would make on the floors, though - I know a lot of people like the extreme amount of detail in the stone floor, but in my opinion, it is a bit overpowered - it gives the effect of a pokey, gravely floor when, in Tolkien's drawing, it is a flat wooden floor. I do really love the beehive technique!

The outside was not very textured due to lack of pieces. Thanks for the input.

Pretty nice work here Carter :) I like the fact that you included an interior and the small hole in the roof that is described in the book, I have one suggestion though, I think in some spots the ground is a little bare, I think you could have had more texture on the outside, that would be a big plus, either way though I like it :)
