City Docks.

Postby CAI » Tue Apr 12, 2005 5:50 am

I've edited the first few pics and got them up last night.

This one took me awhile, not continuous, but I added to it over a few months.

It is modular, i've taken a bunch of detailed shots and i'll upload them when i edit each one...no walls or tables in the background. :)

Now this is quite good. The shark gutting scene is my favorite, I think. This scene looks very alive, like a waterfront should be. I'm not crazy about the awning with the black corners but I know they don't make those in the colors you needed. Excellent job!

It is a very 'busy' scene contained in your MOC, but you do quite well in making it work. You mix the Classic sets/people well with the newer ones. I really like the way it looks...Good job!

This is pretty awesome. I like that you've got all of your people actually doing something, like the guy with the mop and bucket. Great use for that broom, by the way. Makes a much better mop than broom.
I catually like the tent with black corners. it looks like a couple of the tents at the small Rennaissance faires I've gone to, where they don't have permanent buildings.
I also like your use of chains everywhere. It somehow makes the scene look more realistic.
Clip-flag pieces for a sail? Smart. They look good on that skiff.
Crisp job editing it onto a white background. I still need to make myself a backdrop like Fry slayer and Hachi use, have you tried pasting your creations onto one of those?

Very nice. I love how bustling it looks. Also nice to see some of the official Lego ships sailing around by the dock. Did you get the shark cutting idea from Forbidden Island? I think I recall seeing it done on the back of the box.

Nice work! You have captured the hustle-bustle of a busy city waterfront. I like the hanging shark and the long-haired beggar. Nice touches that add to the overall atmosphere. I look forward to seeing more MOCs. :)

I love how your Moc looks so "lively".
Minifigs doing a buncha different things, all the colors, dead sea creatures & boats. It's fantastic!
I noticed the sharks & sting-ray (is that a sting ray?)
Your towns people certainly have an interesting diet :wink:

Not much to add that others haven't, but I really appreciate the detail you have here... very cool!

I just added some more pics, behind the scenes.

Very nice,

I like the 'busyness' of the scene; always a good feature of town MOCs.

God Bless,

Let me just echo what others have said, lots of great small scale detail. I would have gone for a more traditional looking gatehouse, but I do like the white/blank projecting building on top of the wall. And modularity is of course the way to go.

Thanks for sharing.

That's really awesome. You've packed an amazing amount of detail into a small area. The whole thing has a very 'clean' look to it, yet it doesn't look artificial. One thing I have to say I don't care for though, is the ship, especially the prow. It just looks like it needs a bowsprit. I love incorporation of the small BF boat though. Good work.
