Man, a build like this could give one the illusion that he's a professional...
About this creation
Sure I've got mid-terms this week, but hey, nothing should stand in the way of creativity. Now I just have to figure out how to pass those exams... ;)
Anyway, so I figured out what the big problem was with my other creations, namely their photos. And so the figurative light came on to the problem with the literal lights that I've been using. Bottom line: Fluorescents stink. So the new Lego builder in me is taking advantage of the latest and greatest camera taking light, namely the Sun, to solve my problems and save the world. God must'a known that we'd invent cameras or something... Who knew, right?
ANYway, let's shift this train of thought down the tracks so that we can actually get somewhere (see what college has done to me?!?).
So, in this build I concentrated on getting some cool looking water and rock work (only using a darker gray color rather than mixing a few different colors together). Turned out great for me :)
I also wanted to incorporate my minifig Nolan Aeras into the build to complete the medieval-type setting of it.
To the pics...
Wha'sis, a UFO?!? (yep, even in the medieval...)
Better view of stream.
Close up on upper stream with tree root detail.
Lower stream area with the rocky bend (one of the initial ideas that I wanted very much to incorporate into the build. It helps break up the blockiness of the creation).
To show that I'm the half-rate constructioneer that you all think that I am, I hereby show you the ugly truth behind my build (or under it, whichever you prefer). Henceforth, you now know that I have not enough bricks to make a solid build like the rest of you ;( Ain't it so terribly sad...
On a happier note, I'll end with a last pic of Nolan (who decided to reappear again just for us). Even a great adventurer such as himself can appreciate the true beauty of a nature created by a wonderful God...
Thanks for viewing and putting up with my longwindedness.
Not bad. A pretty good build overall. As for your build not having a full base, a lot of builder's do that. You see all those huge builds where it's like 32 by 32 and 8 bricks tall square building? A lot of those are at least a little bit hollow. So don't worry about that. Just keep on building. Keep it up!
Wow, what wonderful work this is! Promar, this is a groundbreaking creation for you, not just because of the new photo technique (which is really outstanding), but also too because of the very unique design that this MOC has. The complexity of its structure and size are sweet. You'd hardly notice that it was taken outdoors (which is good) because the photos have not been bleached as this happens so often with outdoor photographed creations. So my hat's off to you for that. Overall, just stunning work. I continue to look forward to your creations as you are a shining example of creativity and keep the building feeling alive. Happy building and God bless, my friend (oh and don't work too hard at college). 5/5! :-)
