Now I gotta go do all the hard work of topping Dawn in the art community's eyes or I'll fade into obscurity again.

Hey, I didn't know you gave Dawn a DD. Cool. He's kinda a loner in the bio community so I don't think any of us really picked up on it. Hmmm that makes ten now right? I'll have to look through your faves and count.

I must say, this was a really interesting month for sculptures Pam. You picked some very interesting and rather varied sculptures. Or maybe its just me as I've paid attention to the sculptures you've picked more. I've gone and checked the DD's just about every day to see "what Pams got for us today." :)

yep, sure did. slipped one by you, huh? still not feeling like an expert when it comes to judging MOC creations but thanks to you, I'm learning. anyway, appreciate the help and glad you liked the DD selections!

Yeah ya did. Well its not easy really, to be able to judge a MOC the way we do you gotta be pretty familiar with the parts, the sets the come from, how they're typically used and then be able to identify how people have rearranged the parts in a clever way. For someone not a MOCer they more so see a cool figure, or a dinosaur or plague doctor, not "oh hey he took that shield and made it a hat brim." MOCers like the ones who already have DD's have made MOCs that are instantly recognizable, a big minotaur, a hooded warrior, the robot unicorn, a hand, a girl in a sexy pose. There was something the non-MOCers could identify with and go "hey that's cool you made a ____ out of bionicles. Man its been forever since I played with mine. That's neat" or any variation or segment of that sentence.

There's that Journal that Alex made called "MOCs which amaze me." Most of those are like *jaw falls off face* good MOCs, a lot of that stuff is at the level or beyond the level of MOCing him, myself, and Maplemaster are at. Here on DA, you've gotten to most of the "cream of the crop" within the sociable community. There's a few MOCers that kinda keep to their own little circle and don't bother submitting to the group. The one with the dinosaur I had never even heard of, so it was very surprising to see him get a DD. Where do you "discover" MOCers and start following them?
I'm glad I could be of some help. ^_^

well, here I am--late again with answering my messages! sorry. yeah, I'll never be a pro when it comes to the MOCs. I must admit that I pretty much look at the piece artistically rather than zeroing in on all the little bits and pieces. I sort of have to do it like that 'cause most of the dA community isn't going to know much more than I do about MOCs.
re where do I find them? I spend a LOT of time pouring through a LOT of art on dA! I watch a lot of groups and individuals and every now and then, I find an artist who hasn't been discovered for whatever reason. can't remember where I found the dino--could have been in a dragon group or a lego group. :shrug:

This is very true, and this was my argument when I announced that this Dino got the DD and people said it wasn't very good. Yes, from our point of view it wasn't all that good, it wouldn't have gotten a DD from me, however, it was instantly recognizable to any "average viewer" and is why it got it. Plus the artist did amazing work in system so I'm glad he got the recognition he did from that.
All this being said, I think the bioMOCers in the community are a little confused on what exactly the criteria is for getting one. I myself find the line a little blurred with last months DD's. If you'd like I can in a manner of speaking "pass you the mic" and you can address the community that is a little perplexed by all this. We used to think "you gotta be one of those god mode MOCers to get a DD" cause that's who got them at first. Now...we don't really know what qualifies. If you'd like to explain it, or have already, I could take that, paste it into a journal in the BML and give all of use a bit more clarification. I think if we knew what exactly to strive for, you'd see more MOCers doing so.

I imagine so. So amidst the sea of incoming art, the DD's are what stands out to you?

when I was told I was going to be responsible for Lego sculptures as well as all the other kinds of sculpture, I must admit I panicked a bit. I am not a Lego sculptor in any way. if you recall, I talked to you a bit about the fact that I know nothing about MOCs--in fact, I had never even heard of them before. thanks to you, I learned a little bit about that part of Lego sculpture. so, having said all that, you and the MOC community need to realize that Lego sculpture includes a lot more than MOCs. it comes down to simple artistic lines--i.e., most dA members will look at a piece as, "hey, that's a cool Lego sculpture" rather than looking at it from a MOC perspective. as I already said, most of us, I would venture to say, know next to nothing about MOCs and just look at things as clever, cool sculptures. if I continually feature warrior kind of MOC dudes to the exclusion of other kinds of Lego creations, you better believe I'll be hearing from both the community and the dA $ folks. if you look back on the MOC's that have gotten DD's, it seems to have been the ones that were a bit 'different' that were more popular in the community. (one that comes to mind is the horse one--can't remember who did that but it was one of the early ones and it was wildly popular). don't mind if you want to put this message out there to the MOCers--also don't mind receiving more guidance/education from you guys. just remember--please!--that I'm responsible for a lot of different kinds of sculpture: paper, clay, metal, environmental, snow, sand, etc., etc. and I'm only human.
