More Melo round 1

More selected entries from MELO Round 1, again illustrating riddles from the Hobbit riddle game.

Matthew B's Bilbo Fishing illustrated the fish riddle, and brought him on to round 2.


David FNJ showed us wind, and went on to the next round.


Finn Tegotash advanced with Dark, showing Radagast's glimpse of the Necromancer.


Time all things devours, including, sadly Arwen. Stuart Lucas' Arwen's sepulchre was a lovely MOC, and also an alternate build of the Elrond's Council set, but sadly did not quite make the cut for round 2.

MELO Round 1, Dark and Mountain

Four more from round 1 of the MELO:

Legopard's Fire and Water was his way to illustrate 'dark'. He argues that Smaug's attack happened at night, and brought metaphoric darkness into the lives of Lake-Town. That's quite the stretch, but it's an awesome MOC and earned him a spot in Round 2.


Jacob Pennington took a more literal take on dark with the Mines of Moria. A great MOC, but it just missed the cut to go on to the next round.


Elliott Feldman's Mount Doom is his take on the mountain riddle. Another really nice MOc that went on to round 2.


Lee Muzzy also made a mountain for the Goblin Caves. He even includes Gollum's cave inside, and went on to round 2.
