Nautilus by st3vethesquid Nautilus by st3vethesquid
A nautilus I made for the BCBS contest, the category was "useless pieces", I used the Vezon masks. For some reason I only got 10th place, losing to some duplo. And the results: [link]

As of now, it has all dark silver masks.

Mocpages: [link]

edit: 6/16/13 this got on what's hot :D

I love how well you developed this thing! However, with the tentacles being this long and individual, I would categorize this as more of an Ammonite than a Nautilus. Still awesome, though!

I would say "tbh when I made this I didn't know the difference" but tbh I currently didn't really know there was a difference. I like cephalopods a lot, but I like my internal perspective of them better than reality, and as a result I actually don't know all that much about them.

If I made this now, I would have made it a lot different and more accurate. This is really more of a cartoon.

Alright, then. I actually am much more of a paleontological nerd than others my age and even up, and this is actually much more accurate a creation than anything I could ever create anyways. It is still a magnificent piece of art.

Thanks! And that's definitely cool that you're into paleontology!

Don't expect to hang it on a wall or something. A nautilus shell is usually 1.5 in diameter.

Nevertheless, this work caught my eye! Wonderful use of pieces, and it immediately gets 10 points for originality ;)

Haha, I sometimes do that too. Lately, my best work comes from contests, but lately, nearly all my work comes from contests so I doubt it means anything XD

But yeah, this has been an idea I've entertained ever since I saw this [link] post, and the contest was the perfect excuse to try and succeed or fail without much repercussion!

Of the six contests I've ever entered, three of them involved MOCs that I'd planned on building anyway, so those don't really count... nevertheless, contests did bring about the existence of Cancer, Yanmega and Absol, so I guess I should be grateful! As for your MOCpages one, though, I really think you deserved a higher spot. Given that the category was Useless Pieces, I really couldn't find many useless ones in many of the entries, while in yours the Vezon masks are very obvious. :shrug:

Yeah, the entire duration of the contest, I've been the underdoggiest of underdogs, and I think almost every month I've gotten several places less than I should have.

But I can hardly complain, since even though I haven't even won once, I'm in 3rd and will be getting money!

I said hardly; in July, I had to post my entry rushed before summer sleepaway camp. (which totally screwed up brickfair, but that's a different story) I posted the moc, and put it in the group, but I forgot to put it in the entry thread, so I was disqualified without a word! If I hadn't been disqualified, I might have gotten the points needed to be in 2nd, and get $25 more... but after this month, that just might happen anyways. The question is, whether I can hold my own against Chronos... and we all know the answer is NO unless he just is completely incapable of building :c

But eh, I'm happy, this is the best I've done in a contest, and... $$$!

Clever usage of the parts.
I like the round looks achieved with them. The bright lime tentacles don't stand out, but they are very vibrant against the metal tones..

I like it!

Maxilos and Spinax have two of the dark silver Vezon masks, and I got a third mask at brickfair.

I know I've seen something almost just like this several months ago, but a bit more complex. It had black tentacles instead, I know that much to be exact.

You may be thinking of one of the many 'dark fantasy' creations by Nannan Zhang, he uses tentacles a lot.

I don't like them as a part, and not too many people use them, as I've seen.

I also don't like the large shields, they don't have good contours. At the time I didn't like bohrok shields, because at the time my building style didn't allow for too much roundness. :)
