MicroScale Island
About this creation
I wanted to create an island of sorts to try out my new trans light tiles more extensively as well as light grey rocks. I've always used dark grey. The intention was to build something on top of the island when I was done.



One of the other deals I wanted to work on was grass-scaping. Most of my other works are just water, rocks, and castle.



I've always believed you can't really learn until you build. Becoming a good builder is an evolutionary process. With just about every one of the good builders out there, you can find a stash of old stuff that looks like it was built by a 12 year old.



The main things I learned in building this is that using this greenery technique eats up tons of pieces. Also, because of the sloping, the space got eaten up as well. Putting a mini-fig or palm tree on the island looks rather ridiculous, so I had to change the concept to microscale.



Eventually I may still put a castle or something ontop of the island, but I'll have to modify some things first to make it look more fitting.



As a final note, I've had Warwick castle in the back on my mind for awhile and thats why I'm interested in this greenscaping. This MOC is 48x48. Scaling up to Warick would end up being 180x100 but with a much more % as green. I can't even begin to imagine how many plates would be needed. For now I'm shelving that idea.

The water texture looks purely realistic, One of the best micro scale islands I've ever seen.

Eggy, you are right. Practice, practice, practice, is what makes a good builder, but not only practice. I think looking and analyzing other builders creations helps a lot in getting new ideas and new techniques. Your work with that island is awesome. I will try this techinque out one day (should I have tons of tiles...). Fantastic Moc, Giorgio

ya the 12 yr old comment wasnt that great of an idea... i can see you got some crap about it lol im 13 but im not really gonna take offense to that, as many of my friends lego creations, arent close to as good as mine, which are miles away from looking as great as your stuff. and i agree with you, as lots of people have silly stuff in the folders haha. even you have a small-ish not that great castle on your page, and you in my opinion are like a god of lego haha, anyway try to avoin comments that may insult people, even if you dont care :P anyway, check out my stuff. max

Huh? What is that your holding? A Micro Island? I can't see it! Why did you have to make it so small Professor?

Did these models come in a big yellow box and have instructions with them?

im 13 and looking back at what ive posted ive improved though practice and though selecting the correct theme to build to, currently i build robots. the scale i build to is routhly 1:25 (minifigure scale is 1:50). so to my scale a person is twice the hight of a minifigure

It's nice. I've never tried a micro-scale, takes a ton of pieces as you said. I've even kinda gotten out of Lego, oh noes. Sacrilege. Anyway, maybe make a micro-minifig and a crashed boat, or even downed plane! >:D

Beautiful. The landscaping is absolutely marvelous. The blue tiles mixed in with the whiter to give depth really works well for this moc. The gray gives it that "untouched island" feel.

This is an excellent MOC Professor Eggplant. The water and stonework looks excellent; I wouldn’t be surprised to see something exactly like this floating in the Caribbean. Perhaps you should add a micro scale ship somewhere in the water. Now if only I could stop building like a twelve year old.

Quoting Mark Kelso it looks disturbingly similar to something I found growing recently in my fridge. Coincidence?
Wow, now all I can think of is green eggs and ham when I look at this. Definitely time to build something ontop. And no, I'm not looking in your refrigerator! I'm certain that there's no keystone light in there.

Love the look, Eggy. Brilliant transition on the water. Nice shape to the island, as well...although the overhead shot of it looks disturbingly similar to something I found growing recently in my fridge. Coincidence?
  July 6, 2009
Did you put the trans blue tiles on in a completely random pattern while building? Or did you use a set of "basic" patches, of for example 4x5 studs? I like the use of the trans clear studded plates on the beach to give the impression of incomming waves. I wonder how this will look in a larger scale, when you could give it some more height differences.

I love that shoal. Seeing a micro castle on that thing would be very good-looking, I think. But hey, if your going for new techniques, try building in the center of the island. I can already see it coming along. Good day

Quoting Dennis Price Oh you silly professor-type person!
Well golly. I guess we share the same value of our kidneys and can't give them up for $10M projects of wonder... (or making us wonder why we spent so much so that kids can tell us to check out their halo mocs)

Nice work on the water. I agree, landscaping looks great, but is perhaps too parts intensive for many of us to do well. I'm slowly gathering the necessary smaller green and brown plates to get the job done. Perhaps selling my kidney would finally get the requisite dough in my wallet. This looks terrific!

I still think the water work is the standout of most of your mocs. Maybe someday, I'll break down, hit cracklink and steal some of those designs. And yeah, a castle would look nice on that. ~ Chris.

Nice island. That's what I love about microscale. You sure don't need as many parts. You might be able to mix some green slopes to add some different angles to the hillside. This made me think about using white slopes with clear pieces at the waters edge to create more active water washing against the shore. see ya. garth
