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…

Santa’s Solution

Frustrated over the amount of mail he had to handle each winter, Santa came up with a brilliant solution, that not only freed him from the drudgery of reading badly spelt wish-lists, but also knocked a considerable amount off his heating bill. So this winter, send Santa a long list to keep him warm 😉

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…

Letters to Santa

Christmas is rapidly approaching with all its joy and merriment! But if you’re thinking of sending Santa your Christmas list, you may want to think twice. I mean, who likes having tons of letters dumped in their living room every morning? Had a big pile of letters lying around, so I figured I should come…

Soccer Grass Tutorial

This is a tutorial covering the another of my grass techniques from my Element Experimentation series. This grass is shorter than the wavy grass and looks more like what you’d typically find on a soccer field, although it’s still quite hard to balance minifigures on it 🙂 The technique is based on two elements: 32828…
