MELO Round 2: J-rod Smith vs. Graham Gidman

About this creation
Hello everyone! This is my entry to round 2 of the MELO. My opponent this round is Graham Gidman. My category was "The Ring Goes South" from The Fellowship of the Ring. I decided to build the section just before the Crebain find the fellowship.

I love this scene because it shows the true nature of the fellowship. Sam is cooking, Frodo is just watching the scene, and Gimli and Gandalf are talking. Pippin, Merry, and Boromir are having fun practicing their swordsmanship. Aragorn is just sitting smoking his pipe, and Legolas is watching the distance.

The size and detail of yours takes mine. I love how much of it there all is.

Man, are you guys TRYING to make it impossible for us judges?! :P Both of your entries are awesome: awesome rocks, awesome layout, awesome coloring, and so on. J-Rod's entry is very nicely detailed, but a little chaotic. Also, the palm fronds don't really fit with the landscaping from the movie. Graham's landscaping is a tiny bit better, and his build overall matches the movie's aesthetic better, so Graham gets my vote. (I know all those reasons are really nit-picky, but it was just that close). BTW, J-Rod, I really like the photography in this one. The blue backdrop and the lighting are great.

Both of you captured the scene pretty much to perfection. I like both takes, the rocks are great and very inspirational. I think J-rod's is great and I like the size of his rocks and the overall size, the details of what each member in the fellowship is doing as a big plus for me. Graham's is also great, I would have loved to see the finished product, he too included some important details such as the wrestling match happening. I think Graham's is a bit cleaner while J-rod's can be a little hard to focus on one thing, and this may be what he was going for. In the end my vote goes to J-rod, the sheer size of his MOC and the jagged rocks is what ended up being the clincher for me. Both of you have very note worthy MOCs and I look forward to more. Good luck with the other judges!

Yup, we chose the exact same scene... Still have quite a bit left to do on mine, we'll see if I can get 'er done! ;) Really nice work, by the way!

Fantastic work! I like the way the base looks, kinda jutting out when it needs to, and the spires look great.
