  1. Sir Micah of Wolfhaven and his wife Elizabeth would be honored to attend. As they are primarily in Elizabethville, they would be sure to come to King's Harbour for such an event. Also Hannah, the lady in black, would be a great addition to any social gathering, even though I haven't developed her backstory enough. All three can be found here. Elizabeth and Micah change clothes frequently, but the faces and hair/hat stay the same. These pictures are good examples. Hannah dresses in black, obviously.
  2. It is attached using a clip like this slid into the top of the open end of the post.
  3. This is my first large vessel in quite a while, so I am looking for some advice on the style of rigging to go for. I was thinking square would make the most sense. What class would you say this is? I was going for a class 5 merchant vessel. Also any other suggestions for improvement? I was finally able to get back to this over the holidays as it had languished since March of 2018, so I was hoping to finalize it soon.

    [GoC] A New Haven

    from me. This is a really pretty build and well done in digital form. I love the story and tying up all the random loose ends of previous stories. I would like to know how you render with the brick edges showing, as I always struggle with the seemless look in my digital builds.
  5. Despite my desire to participate again, life prevented me still from getting any builds done. I'm looking forward to reading about the competition.
  6. I am probably working on my team tomorrow.

    [GoC - FB - COR] All Hail the Queen!

    I don't want to seem super picky on this, and thus I give @Bregir the right to overule me if he feels I am being so. I would like to see this build with a different renderer. For ease I might suggest the iStudio as you can import the model directly in, though I know there are a few others out there that I have used before. I know some take a lot of computer power so feel free to let me know if your computer can't handle a heftier render (that would be similar to someone not having a large enough collection which we won't fault anyone for.) If such is the case, we could talk about a way for you to forward me the file, and I could render it for you. Feel free to message me directly if you need, but I like the way the build is done but would like to see a different renderer used.
  8. I will admit that I am no ship expert. Bregir has a much better understanding of them then I do. I do think your brickbuilt furled sail technique is unique and adds some interesting depth you don't always see in LDD ships. I do like some of the small details you have added everywhere. They create a nice touch. The technique you employed to simulate tumblehome is a new one for me. I am always pleased to see new techniques tried but I am not sure it worked as well as would be hoped. It did take me a few moments to figure out what you were doing with them. I will say that you had a nice use of the panther as a figurehead, even if it is a bit large, it is unique and doesn't look overtly out of place. Areas of improvement: when tiling a floor in LDD, there is no seperation when rendering with Bluerender. So you need to add elements to mix things up. Try different colors, or a printed tile, or even a grate piece, or a stud, to occassionally break things up. I do know there are some other renderers out there that do render the edges of the pieces so it looks more realistic. You could also look for one of them. Have you looked at iStudio for building or rendering? On my Myzec build, I rendered it both with LDD and iStudio and they did render it differently as you can see below.

    A from me. This build looks amazing and has a lot of nice details. I am particularly fond of the fencing technique and how it is brick built and not just a premade Lego part. Also the edges of the flower gardens are well done particularly the corners. I like that you have ivy just starting to grow on the side of the building. The use of only a single vine is indicative of a newer building which matches the story and the build. Lastly, I will say that the render on this build turned out well which is not always the case for such a large construction. A couple areas of improvement. This large and impressive of a build could use more story. It also could use some activity of figures, which might lend to the story. Right now it looks pretty lifeless. Also some more views would be nice (ie. birds eye, through the gate, focused on a figure in the garden, etc.) You have the two approvals you need for this build.

    [GoC - FB1 - COR] Spirdkirk Forward Outpost

    A from me. The bottom of the tower does reflect a classic pirate feel, though the top is more of a unique design. Good job at blending the two together. The fortifications look hastily contructed per the storyline, but I like that you have included some firepower with the watchtower. It would be a great first line of defense and warning. My favorite part of this build is the tent. Great job on its shaping. I also like the palm tree posing. Areas for improvement. I know you are using the foliage to create the look of a new building in a formerly wild area. However, if a watchtower had just been constructed and with feet tramping through the area, there would be more dirt and less foliage right around the new constructions. The foliage works great farther away from the new construction, but not right in front where the soldiers are walking. So maybe include more pathway right under foot and use the foliage farther out. Also, I am not sure how well the modern hat works in the setting, though I think you were creative in your story to try and blend it in.
  11. A from me. I am no expert on ships, which is why I am slow at building them. However, I do recognize beauty in lines, colors, and story shots. You have done an excellent job of showing off this build and creating activity on board. The sailing pictures are also well done and the use of the blue sheet helps the presentation. If you have a few small translucent blue pieces, spreading them around the ship helps add realism to this technique of picture taking as it blends the build into the otherwise smooth sheet/cloth. I would ask if the flags are facing the right direction. They seem to be going the wrong way, but you have them all so precisely placed it seems you were intentional on it. Note: I had mentioned on your other build to include the GOC task you are submitting for, but I notice you had already done that here. So please ignore the other comment and carry on as you have done in this build.
  12. A from me. The troops are exceptionally done with a nice backstory to each one. I am fond of the perfect posing of each group of soldiers. I find that the focus on your photography here is well done. Nice background buildings and minifigures. I would have liked to see a post parade shot of the buildings and common figures, but that is more of a curiosity factor on my part then a neccessity for this build and storyline. Great job.

    [GoC] Fortification on Serentia

    I love the classic look to this build. It definitely takes me back to my early days with the pirate series. I find that this presentation is excellent for Serentia and is a creative method of doing it. The figures are well done and well posed. Bregir has already mentioned the one area of lack which is something in the courtyard. Just keep that in mind in the future when making builds with large open areas. A from me which is the two you need for this build. One thing that would be helpful to the GOC reviewers is to note what category and subcategory you are doing. It helps (me at least) figure out what to look for, especially as some builds could work in multiple categories. (ie. On this build, you could say Mangrove Madness, rural category, or #12, 2nd category or a combination of this.) Thank you.
  14. To start off a from me. This boat has a lot of nice touches in its shape and design. I like that you included the sides bowing instead of being all at the same height. It is of course what I expect from you with your ship knowledge. You did a nice job shaping the ship, and I particularly will note that the shot from above shows how well you did. Normally I would see gaps with the blue baseplate peeking through. You did an excellent job of making it so that didn't happen. The inclusion of the hand to hand armaments was also a great touch. Areas for improvement: The third shot looks great because the baseplates take up the whole picture. However, the other two pictures show the edges of the baseplates. I would like to see you use another presentation technique that doesn't let the baseplate seem so obvious in the pictures (Ayrlego is obviously the master of this in Corrington.)
