Continuing in an experimental theme of ruinous surrealism, unorthodox color combinations, texturing, and a new tree technique, I present this rather cluttered 16 x 16 vignette featuring a crocodile-infested river, the ruins of some jungle structure, a decaying rope bridge, and an olive green and silver tree.
About this creation
A special thanks to Ian Spacek for giving me these awesome olive green elements and suggesting that I use the wheel thing as a tree stump.
I'm not entirely happy with the visual read on this build. The color palate has two too many colors to be sensible on this small scale. The water, though, is a rather rare color that I use whenever I possibly can.
Quoting David the Fire Ninja Jedi
Amazing work! I have a question, how did you get the LEGO string through the holes for the bridge? aren't there studs at each end of the string, making that impossible?
Thanks for the comment, David! I used the Lego string that came with the series minifig fishermen that has a stud on one end and a short bar on the other.
The colour choices are very good, sort of real world but not quite. The wheel in the base of the tree gives a smooth start to the trunk and those twosted pipes look excellent. The way that they twist and the shape of its canopy reminds me of a beech. Super bridge too.
That tree technique is beautifully interesting. On its own, I think it would really shine, especially the trunk. Ians idea of the wheel is perfect. I almost hope that Desolation III is solely the tree. There's almost too much going on here subject-wise and color. It still looks great though.
