R.O. Round 1: Call of the Wild
About this creation
My entry to the 2013 Reading Olympics

I chose the category "Classic American Literature".
The book I choose is The Call of the Wild.

I hope you guys like it! :D


"The pool itself, muddy and discolored from the sluice boxes, effectually hid what it contained, and it contained John Thornton; for Buck followed his trace into the water, from which no trace led away"

Boy, that must be the shortest story I've ever posted here. Be happy. :P
The whole build. Nothing grandeur, but not bad for being built in two days, eh? :D




This is my attempt at a tree worthy of Mark Erickson. It's alright for a first, methinks. :)


Next are shots of the trees, so not much.

Red Tree.





The fallen tree. (I got the idea from an illustration in my copy of the book)




The orange/olive tree. I love Legos' new leaf colors. :D




The whole scene without buck. Notice the melting snow under the tall grass. :)




And finally Jack Thornton, resting in his watery grave.






Thanks For Looking! Good Luck To Everyone Else! :D
Soli Deo Gloria!

Very nice, I agree with Luke: rather simple, yet very compact and well-designed, with a nice natural feel. This is also one of my favorite classic literature books, I'm glad someone chose it. The underwater aspect was a good addition and the trees turned out great. Nice work with the snow and grass, too. Score of 3.

Good stuff. Nice, well foliaged landscape. Somewhat small and simple, yet rather pleasing to the eye. 4 points.
