    How do those people create MOC?

    I find that a lot of AFOLs who are set builders don't MOC because they are paralyzed by a fear of not being able to build well right out of the gate. They see incredible MOCs at Eurobricks, via Flickr or Instagram, through their LUGs, or at conventions and say to themselves "I'll never be as good as these builders, why bother?". They forget that everyone has to start somewhere, including some of the best MOCers in the world, and that there is no magic ability to suddenly be a good builder without the experience gained through actual MOCing. Every MOCer produces duds all the time, but it's the knowledge of learning what doesn't work that allows for the discovery of what does work. This process also involves learning what one enjoys building, which leads to each builder adopting a style that best fits them. This is also why I encourage people to join LEGO rolebuilding games ad nauseum, especially new builders. The games are safe environments to learn, where fellow players are highly encouraging and constantly provide constructive feedback. On top of that, because part of the focus of most games is to tell stories as well as earning high scores, it takes some of the pressure off MOC quality if your priority is to tell a narrative. As you build for the game, your skills as a MOCer will naturally improve over time. I'm just going to paraphrase what has already been said: just MOC. Don't worry about being good. That will come naturally if you keep MOCing.
  2. Thanks for the advice! @RocketBoy suggested the same thing in the CFS channel when I was showing WIPs, but I was rushing at that point to make the deadline. It's definitely something I will keep in mind when starting new MOCs from now on.
  3. Pants are inconvenient, but a crop top is comfortable. That's because he manscapes.
  4. *This entry has earned 9 XP* Major Characters Tini, the Jawa celebrity chef, reaches out to one of her ingredient suppliers, a Chiss farmer on Telos IV who Tini calls Chisstopher because she thinks he has too many apostrophes in his name. He updates her on his crops, while his Twi'lek wife, the swimsuit model Wowwsa (named by Rocketboy yes I was surprised too), sunbathes nearby. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!
  5. Unikitty swoops in just in time to celebrate pride month in her Pride Viper! Dedicated to Matthew Ashton, VP of Design at LEGO, who designed the Everyone Is Awesome set and created Unikitty!
  6. The lack of law enforcement has plunged Heartlake City into a lawless dystopia. However, the animals still need rescuing. Liz dons a mechanized suit named after her big sister and becomes their last best hope.

    [MOC] Camping Trip

    Built as part of TrickyLUG’s “Let’s Go Camping!” collaboration for Bricks by the Bay.
  8. *Your entry has earned 12 XP* Major Characters During the Clone Wars, Tini's mother, M'nuta, was honored on Muunilinst with a stature, to commemorate the contributions of her taco. A special force of clones was assembled to guard this statue. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!
  9. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* Major Characters During the Clone Wars, Tini's mother, M'nuta, required clean water on Muunilinst in order to continue to supply the Republic with her taco. A special force of clones were put together, one trained to deal in sewage. Their appearance may look like their Geonosis counterparts, however, they also wear cloaks. Due to these cloaks, these sewer clones deploy with more panache and style, often behaving more dramatically than other clones. Here, a team of sewer clones are seen taking a water treatment plant on Muunilinst from the Separatists. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

  12. The blue and grey spaceship is an old MOC reused as the illegally parked vehicle. EDIT: Thanks for the kind words, everyone! Here's a better image of just the landing platform:
