The Foothills

Landscapes is one of my favourite things to build in Lego which is why I tend to gravitate towards microscale builds, as you can create larger landscapes with fewer pieces. Of course, with smaller scale there is also a loss in detail, so there is a balance to be struck. This build I was testing…

Spruce

Two spruces that I built for a larger build that I’m working on for a competition. I rather liked how they turned out so I built a little base for them and took some nicer photos. The trunk is made with the same technique used for many of my minifig scale trees – the axe…

Brick Bonsai

It’s been quite a while since I built my first bonsai, so it was time for another try. Though, this build is more the result of testing out two different techniques, rather than an attempt at creating a complete piece. The first technique is the brick pattern of the pot, which is something I’ve been…

Micro Cottages

I really like building micro scale landscapes, and most of the time my focus is on the nature part of a build – how to make it look natural and organic. Most of the time, however, nature builds center around something, often something man made. For this reason I decided to do some experimentation with…

The Ascent

A micro landscape build inspired by the Swiss alps which I had the privilege to do some hiking in a while ago. I was fascinated by the change in vegetation with altitude and I thought it’d make a nice theme for a build. The effect is, of course, greatly exaggerated in this build for aesthetic…

Ninja Horn Tree

Micro scale trees are something I really like building, and I’m always looking for new designs in order to get some variety in my micro landscapes. While tinkering a bit with new tree designs I came up with this new design, which consists of ninja horns stuffed into a flotation devices. It’s a pretty odd…

Garbage in Paradise

When Swebrick revealed that the theme for their next contest would be “Under the Surface” I immediately knew I wanted to build something linked to ocean pollution. The idea was to create a build where the top would look like your ordinary tropical paradise while the bottom would reveal the true state of our oceans.…
