MEC Category C: Entering Mirkwood

Recommended Posts

This my entry to the "There and back again" category. The build itself is actually pretty sturdy, even if it does not look like it is. Using a lot of dark brown robotic arms to fix the foliage, makes them connect so strong you can actually shake the whole vignette, wihtout loosing any parts. I have placed black bricks in the background to create this creepy feeling.

The scene shows the chapter when the party reached Mirkwood and Gandalf is telling Bilbo, that he has to leave. Bilbo and the dwarves have to face the menaces of Mirkwood on their own. Even if it is also in the book, I prefered to add the dialoque from the movie, because I really like it.

15404204318_df4b7b608b_o.jpgFound what ? What did you find ?

15404708030_5e12f0ccd5_o.jpg... [hesitating] ... My courage !

Thanks for hosting this great contest, I love everything from Middleearth. And good luck to the other contestants !

Very nice! I like the switched 1x1 plates. It gives the set more natural and random look. And the trees are amazing!

Really nice entry for category C and congratulations for getting blogged on TBB. :sweet:

This is truly a nice entry but is the conversation from the book or from the second movie, I don't remember it although I have re-read the book just a week ago.

Definitly a technique that I would recommend. It is sturdy and looks really organic.

The part is really short in the book, so I added the dialogue from the movie. In my opinion the conversation is one of the best in the movie, even if there is one better diealogue, maybe I can build another entry to show that.

Great stuff Paul - looks quite Lovecraftian.

Comparing me with the master of creepyness, thanks :blush:

Outstanding build, Disco86!

I love the use of those dark tan tenacle pieces. They help give the woods a very eerie creepy feeling, capturing the astmosphere of Mirkwood well.
