Hurricane Irene . Built for the 2011 MOCOlympics Round 1. The category for my build is "wind". . 2011 MOCOlympics Round 1 Category="wind" The Build I chose the category wind in the free-for-all round of the MOColympics because of its overall obscureness and I sort of expected that it would be a smaller category. I chose to depict the recent hurricane "Irene" which whirled its way up the east coast not too long ago. I am choosing to explain the build in one paragraph this time instead of annotating each picture separately. I think this will be a bit less tedious and a bit easier in the long run. Anyhow, This took approx 6 hours to build and is on a 48x48 baseplate. One thing I really tried to do in this creation was work on my angle-ing. I tried to fit as many obscure angles into the creation as possible. It wasn't quite as tough as Fort McHenry but it was still a challenge filling the gaps. I have always had a sort-of-fascination for ApocaLEGO and so I tried to translate some of my interests and techniques that I have seen into this creation in effort to make it look really storm-struck. Some more new details that I have included are some puddles using trans clear, an overturned garbage can, and a bent stop-sign. Try to find them all! The water was definitely the most difficult part due to its rather obscure idea as well as painstaking placement of plates. I tried to design this creation so that it would be easy and pain free to take down, and I think I did a pretty good job. Still, The water isn't the best I've seen but it fits the scene very well in my opinion. The broken roof was partly out of technique, but mostly out of necessity. I was running out of black slopes and I had to *ahem* minimize things a bit. All things considered, it turned out pretty well. I took this picture just so you can see some of the angles that I was working with. The tree design is one of my favorite parts of this creation. This is also perhaps the first time I've had a use for those ugly palm leaves! This shot is a really good one of the blowing trees. A back patio, with a grill and an overturned chair. Once again here is the link to the MOColympics for convenience for the judges. Soli Deo Gloria, Blake
