Slope Tree

Built another of these as part of making a tutorial for it 🙂 I developed the foliage for this quite a while ago, but the trunk is different, and I thought it’d be interesting to cover a new type of trunk in the tutorial. The tutorial itself is still in progress but should be out…

Element Experimentation: Bamboo Grass

I know most of my techniques come with some serious investment requirements, but not so today! Because all you actually need is just bamboo 🙂 It’s pretty cheap, and can often be found in Pick-a-Brick walls. So this is a technique that hopefully anyone can afford 🙂 The drawback, of course, is the quality. There…

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…

Winter Landscape

Though I love building nature, I haven’t built much involving snow. 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. However, when it…

The contest had two themes: minifigures and nature. Seeing as I love building nature, this contest felt like a pretty good fit and…

Abandoned Lot

The theme for Swebrick’s Masterbuilder competition was ‘Park & Nature’ this time around, and as that is what I love to build the most, it was pretty natural for me to join 🙂 At first I had quite a few ideas of different kinds of undulating landscapes, but as some of the rules were clarified…

Micro Seasons

Was experimenting with micro trees for a planned build the other day when I saw this cool technique for a base posted by o0ger, and I just had to use it to make some mini landscapes. Ended up with a few seasonal vignettes and I thought I might as well share them 🙂 Enjoy! And…

Microscale Tree Mini-tutorial

This is a short tutorial showcasing a technique for building microscale trees. This technique was used to build most of the trees in my MOC Avalonian Countryside. This tutorial was also shared by The Brothers Brick. You can check it out here. What you need The pieces needed are shown above. The centerpiece of the tree is…
