Tropical Rehabilitation Island
About this creation
Well I went to go get an mandibular oseotomy a month ago. Which seemed like a good idea at the time... 'Ceptin' I wasn't prepared for the PSYCOLOGICAL TORTURE of not being able to eat properly for a few months!!! Oh the travesty! I was pretty miserable so to cheer myself up I built a tropical island I could escape to.


If you explore my island you'll find a sheltered bay with a tropical reef and palm trees and dunes, lowland rainforests leading up to sheer granite cliffs, north-western plains with mudflats to the south and an abandoned hilltop temple.



Did you ever play Monkey Island?



In hindsight a light blue background would've looked A MILLION times better than black but hey, I was in a really gloomy mood so maybe that snuck into the presention a bit (dammit!)






Here's the first one I built, smaller to test the idea (and whether I had enough of certain parts!)





Thanks for looking. Now if you'll excuse me I'll get back to eating my mashed potato and soup (Oh JOOOOYYYYYYY!!!!)...

I hope you are feeling much better by now. Your island makes me want to go back to a pirate theme. Excellent.

Fun MOC... even if that's not what you intended. I like the rain under the clouds. As it happens, I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday. I can't imagine eating like this for a month. Enjoy! As much as one can enjoy that sort of thing...

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Nice, great use of lime green, and is that Maersk blue? Anywho, great work and hopefully you recover enough to start eating real food soon.

After the first couple of shots I was thinking, 'reminds me of Monkey Island'.... then got to your comment! Great build and all the best for recovering from your op.

With one tiny sturcture for just a dash of mystery. Very nice. Go have a milk shake and walk it off tough guy. Get well soon. Attack!
