Ummmm..............yes? I can't see why not, seeing, as Josh said, the deadline isn't for another month. Um, yeah, and thats the only reason I can think of why you would ask that. Perhaps if you elaborated a bit on question I could perhaps answer it better. But yes, I can see no reason why you can't enter. Please do in fact, I'd love to see what you can build.

I'm excited now! I just developed a way to do slant walls with a 1x4, but wait, I could just use wall pieces! but anyway, you'll have to see what I'm cooking up, I think you all will be happy with it, hopefully!

But I guess I'll be done with it in a few days. Perchance.

It's my turn now :wink:

Living Tree

Image

The MOC was inspired by the harmony between human beings and nature and for that we must go back many centuries to ancient times.
The City Tree has all basic facilities necessary for its maintenance and development.
It has a wide entrance to avoid congestion, a mill to take advantage of a river which comes from one side, through the tree and exit the other side.
Image

It has fields of crops to provide food and inevitably it also has a place to celebrate their own festivals.

Now that is about the perfect example of Mini Moc Madness. Great entry. And to those out there thinking about entering, stop thinking and get building. We could really use some more entries. If we don't get many more, it won't be much of a contest, with just about everybody winning. You don't want to see me beg for entries, you don't, it's not a pretty sight.

I'm working on one; I never realised how difficult it was :P

A few questions on the rules -
- Is painting bricks allowed (I need some more silver studs, and don't want to BL)
-What level of photoshopping is allowed? - Can we edit out supports?

Great contest! :wink:

Sure, why not? Go ahead. I've never had the problem of customized bricks come up before. Rules have been adjusted.

Great contest! :wink:


Edit out supports? I admit myself a bit confused on just what you mean by that. Umm, maybe PM me a rough copy of the photo, pointing out the things that you'd like to edit, and I'll make the decision there. Or at least, PM me a few more specific details if you want your creation to remain under wraps for the moment. Work for you?

I think he's asking if we can delete pieces that are supporting other parts of the creation to make them appear to be floating/flying/etc. Example: Using trans clear parts to hold up a dragon off of the ground. Could you then delete the translucent parts for the final image to make the dragon appear to be flying?

Then again that may not have be at all what he had been asking :wink: .

P.S. I'm working on my mini moc! Don't go begging for entries yet! :D

Well, its a darn good guess, if nothing else. As far as trans-clear pieces go, yes, by all means, you are free to use to photoshop for that. For anything else, you probably should explain it a bit more, if only in a PM, but it should be alright.
