Initially, I wanted to make some sort of dinosaur skeleton because of the new set but when that wasn't working out, I thought about the trope of dinosaurs with a volcano in the background. KRA-KOOOM!!! This little Pacific Island is going at it!
As per the rules, I had to destroy it to prove it really is only eight pieces. Fair enough though, the thing fell apart on me so many times. Good riddance.
Of course, I did want to show an unedited photo to show just how much was in camera. Stupid me forgot to take a shot from further out to show off the whole set up. There's some microfighter boxes with a flashlight in between that has one of these taped onto the lens, black construction paper to shine that light on, some light blue construction paper that's been pastelled another shade of blue from FOREVER ago, and then added some plastic wrap on top of that for some water effects. Not to mention some of the stuff I did with the lamps for ambient light. A lot of work goes into trying to get stuff in camera as close to the finalized product as possible, but it's worth it.
Sheer genius... Great effect here, Legoboy, that piece of netting is a great touch and the pieces you used for the lava portray it excellently. Too bad you're not "back", we could use a resurgence of good builders around here again :) God bless and keep on brickin'! ~Promar~

The photography is really well done, and I really like how the net, and the whole 'build' just... works, just like your city some time ago. You really know how to do this.
Thanks. Sometimes stuff like this just needs that extra oomph. I wouldn't say that having taken photography courses in college inspired me to do this type of stuff, I was already attempting it before, but having taken those courses, it does help develop skills, and that then furthers the effectiveness of the end product.
