Coral Bleaching

Coral bleaching is an effect of our seas heating up. As temperatures rise, corals expel the algae living inside them, leaving them completely white. Though this does not actually kill the corals, it weakens them and many of the corals never recover. This build was my entry to LEGO IDEAS contest ‘HELP DECORATE THE LEGO…

Lush Landscape

For my last entry to Rebrick’s ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ contest I wanted to make a very lush landscape in minifig scale. I pretty recently finished my Abandoned Lot and I wanted to use the same style for this build, but again limited to the size constraints of the contest. I also wanted to…

As my second entry to Rebrick’s ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ contest I decided to remedy that 🙂 When I build nature landscapes, I strive to make things look organic, which usually means adding a lot of texture and small details.

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…

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.…
