Front Lines: Scouting Felucia...

Post by CloneCommandoXion on Wed Nov 11, 2009 4:19 am

Ok so this is my next vignette of my new series of vig's. Felucia as most of you know is a giant jungle consisting of various colourfull fungi and plant life. Now heres the moc.

Pretty good! I think that Felucia had a lot of giant bulb-like plants though. You had some pretty odd looking fungi, but it still looks great! Oh well, it is an MOC! Razz

I decided not to put him in this time, I thought people would be distracted by him(example: Troopa Daisy). Razz

The brown base of the MOC is a great idea, but try to add some more neon or colorful plants in there, besides most of them being green. Augh! I can't find anything else to critique! Nice job Xion! Razz

Excellent use of that deathstar shield hologram and those Mars mission alien legs! Thumbs up

WIN! This is one of the best Felucias I have seen. Smile The undergrowth is not too small to be noticed but it isn't over the top. The alien legs are a great idea. I may need to borrow it for my own Felucia.

I probably could have added a couple more plants but I decided not to because my big hands kept getting in there and breaking other parts of the moc. Laughing

This is great, excellent piece usage. Like Luke said, I can't find anything bad about it. So what's next in the series? Wink

Like most of the ones I have seen, but still really well done. The plant growth is just right, and I love your troopers!

Hey, CloneCommandoXion, I've noticed your pictures are usually a little fuzzy and have slight green tint. Are you using a webcam? If so try resetting to defaults and/or use a desk lamp near the MOC to increase the amount of light on it. This will cause the webcam to increase its shutter speed therefore giving you less blur. Or if you are using a hand held digital camera, and just not using the flash, try shooting with a tripod so you don't get as much blur. I also use the timer, when I don't use the flash, so that I don't shake the camera by pressing the button. Wink

I'm using a digital camera, where can I get a tri pod? That would probably really improve my pic's. Wink

Future Shop or Best Buy, even Wal-Mart.

http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_constraint=0&ic=48_0&search_query=Tripod

$20-120 I'd aim for $20-60 unless you own a telescope already or a nice video camera. Razz

You'll want one with extendable legs. The tiny ones are cool but often are useless for most photographers needs.

1. Cool plants & tips
2. Nice use of trans green legs
3. Brown pieces look rough and sticking up. Aka not natural.
4. Note if you use one large piece of paper like poster board, and allow it to bow up against a wall, you can have a seamless back ground.

Try to replace the brown with some darker color, and you might want to tune down the brightness of the plants, because Felucia was ravaged by war and chemicals, and was a bit darker. Wink

That part you pointed out Rook with the sand green plants. I didn't have a clue how else to stick those in the ground. Wink

The 2x1x1 with the hole in the centre is good but then put 1x1x(2/3) slopes on the side. Or build them in at the ground level instead of placing them on top of the ground level.

Rhen Var? Or that one in that Clone Wars episode(I forgot the name).

I like the use of the alien legs on the plants! Pretty cool MOC!

This is a very good Felucia set. I like the brown platform.
