This is my entry for the "Landscape" category in the 2010 Moc Athalon! I made the build smaller in order to make it (mostly) studless. This is also my first creation using the SNOT technique. The end is a Haiku, or Japanese poem, I came up with to describe the creation in just a few words...enjoy :)
About this creation
A frontal view of the creation.
Close-up on the Japanese arch.
The build without the arch.
Awww...it's a wittle seagull!
Some plants crawling up the rock wall.
The gnarled roots of the tree.
The tree itself. This was A LOT harder to build than I had originally anticipated.
The right side of my entry. Here you can see the transition from sand, to soil, to rock.
The left side...
A more "artistic" shot.
Shhhh! The Master is meditating! (And yes, those rocks ARE floating)
This is a really pretty build. The slice through effect of the sand, earth and rock is really creative, I feel like getting a good book and sitting down there all afternoon. The tree looks fab, as does that final pic with the floating rocks! Love the 'wittle seagull' :)
