Element Experimentation: Leafy Underbrush

An attempt to get a bit of a wilder look from the plume feathers, by utilising the 6 pronged plant piece. At this point it hardly qualifies as grass anymore and is more of a heavy underbrush in a light forest. This could probably also be used to represent bushes like rhododendron or similar if…

Travis Tree Tutorial

A tutorial showing how to make a tree made mostly out of travis bricks and 1×1 plates in your colour of choice (I went with dark green). It’s quite simple but still has a rather organic shape to it. There is a bit of a pattern in it, but this can be fixed by alternating…

Green Travis Tree

Put some colour on my travis tree, to see if it could become something more useful. Not so sure about the result actually, but it could probably fit in with other micro trees in a forest or something 🙂

Travis Tree

Tried out building in single colour today, with a tree made mostly out of travis bricks. This is a pretty tiny build, but I can imagine working in a single colour becomes very different when building on a larger scale.

Element Experimentation: Cattle Horn Grass

Yet another grass technique. Have used this technique before, but wanted to try to make it even more dense, and this is the result. Again, quite an expensive technique as green cattle horns aren’t the cheapest. I also wanted to see if this could be made to look like short grass, but even with a…

Leafy Bush Tutorial

A short tutorial on a type of leafy bush that I use quite often when building landscapes. It’s quite simple and cheap, but looks quite nice and have an organic curve to it 🙂 It can also be built to different heights for variation, and the top can be either rounded or pointed, depending on…

Element Experimentation: Carrot Top Grass

Another grass technique. This time made from Bright Green carrot tops. It has pretty good coverage, and it’s pretty cheap if built with flick missiles which cost next to nothing. Carrot tops are also not as expensive as many other grass parts. The look leaves some to be desired though, as I feel it has…

Palm Tree Tutorial

A short tutorial showing how palm trees can be built. This is by no means my design, or anything new for that matter. But I had to make a tutorial for it for a tree building workshop I held recently, so I figured I might as well post it 🙂 The design is rather commonplace…

Cattle Horn Grass

Taking apart your old builds can be quite interesting, in the way that you rediscover some old techniques you’ve been using. Having covered a few grass techniques recently I thought this one could be interesting to share. It was my attempt at using cattle horns to create some long grass. I originally had planned to…
