About this creation
The ideas behind these are somewhat secret, but my ideas for a collaboration of themed builds with friends were rejected and I didn't want them to be forgotten. I love the figures I made, but they were rejected. The builds are ultimately just glorified figs on plates, but I couldn't just do that, they needed to be vignettes.

Also, I need to work on my landscaping because I needed way too much help with the first build.

Crystals



A surveyor inspects a new type of crystal that is forming unnaturally...

I have been trying to find a use for the helmet combo that I discovered forever ago. A rangefinder and a floodlight from the Clone add-ons on a Rock Raiders helmet (Well, at least that's where I know this one is from, I think the mold is older than Rock Raiders), it just looks awesome. This is actually the second figure that I made, but it was rejected for having a minifigure torso.

Flowers



A survivor travels through a land becoming ever increasingly more foreign...

I love this guy. He's got one of my favorite heads, uses that lovely camouflage torso from 1999 Endor Luke, and that great pair of legs from a western robot from The LEGO Movie. He has a hiker's pack that I know is from 2000 Arctic (but the mold could be from earlier), a knife, and a shovel. And I just love the big gun. Rejected for being human, let alone a minifigure, and was criticized for being too 90s and early 2000s but that is where the bulk of my loose parts comes from, what I grew up with, and I love that time period of LEGO with all my heart. It's detailed, but still simple. I love the amount of detail we are getting these days on minifigures, but sometimes simplicity can still convey the same feeling.

Behind the Scenes:
This was the first landscape. It's awful. Have you ever seen anything more hideous in LEGO form? My friends pointed me to bigger blocks of color than the mass of everything, creating larger rocks, swapping the survivor for the surveyor, and adding crystals. I shouldn't have needed this much help. I should've been able to knock that out on the first try.
So either:
I am just out of practice because I really haven't been building mush lately...
OR
I just suck at landscapes because if you look through my history, it's mostly ships and robots, rarely locations.



Thanks for stopping by.

Quoting Ben Cossy Ohhhh I love me some glorified Minifigures on awesome landscapes. I'm planning on making some dioramas like this myself, so my creative juices are flowing looking at this. Some nice colour play through this dude, really like that helmet combo you made, it looks very insectoid-y. I'd love to see more Dioramas like these (and if these friends of yours who hate fun and don't want to collab with you aren't keen, I'd love to do a collab with you if it meant making fun dioramas like these!)
It was partially my fault for being stubborn. I'm still being stubborn about it. But things have been quiet lately. That could be good or bad because people are building or they are not. I still need to finish that Aqua Raiders castle, though. I might need to do a hard reboot on it though and start from scratch outside of the minifigs. Try combining 90s Castle with 2007. It's not impossible, but I clearly have no idea what I'm doing. These are good practice for landscaping though, which is something I am kind of incorporating in that build, so I just need to get back on it. I usually don't sketch things out, I just wing it, but I might need to do some planning on the castle. *shudders*

Quoting Subic Vedran I preffer second one.
That seems to be the consensus of a lot of people, which is interesting since I didn't get any help for it, but it wouldn't be as good if I had not gotten help for the first.

Quoting Meepinater C. not bad, although it could use some work... the details add a bit of oomph to it, though, so that's good.
I won't deny that there could be more, but they were purely made to give the figs something to do than just stand on a desk and have me take a picture. But I was always trying to find that balance. Too many details and the small bases would look cluttered. Too little, and it's boring. If there was more base, I would work on more details. But I do get what you mean. I've never built many landscapes, so my supply of parts for them are limited. Those are my excuses. :)

Quoting [ Kromastus ] I would agree with you about the minfig - the Survivor is really well done, and I love how 90s/2000s he looks. Reminds me of the Alpha Team figs, which had a lot of simple details that worked really well. The landscapes both look nice, but the flowers are particularly beautiful. It's not complex, but some of the best scenes of natural beauty are simple. The use of old grey and brown is fantastic, since they're both rich, earthy colours, and they make the white and pink/purple stand out very well and seem all the more alien.
Old grays are the best, but the bluish grays have all the new pieces. The Flowers have Light Bluish Gray and Reddish Brown, but I still have Old Dark Gray in there. It has a particular oomph to it that the Dark Bluish Gray doesn't. Thanks for the detailed comment.
