So for this scene I decided to try and incorporate wind with my limited resources of clear pieces (aka 1x2 clear bricks). It turned out okay, but not like I imagined it would be if I had some 1x1 clear round bricks.
Voiceless it cries --> Wind makes this crying and howling noise when it blows through caves. Thus I included a cave. Wingless Flutters --> As the wind blows through the trees, it makes a fluttering sound because of the leaves. Thus I included a tree bending in the wind. Toothless Bites --> Have you ever been outside in the cold when the wind is blowing? Your face feels like it's getting a bite. Thus I included Gandalf the White walking with the wind biting him. Mouthless Mutters --> When I think of wind muttering, I think of when it blows over the water causing ripples and making the water sound like it is muttering. Thus I included the water.
I hope you enjoy this scene!
Only a few pictures are with the brick-built wind because they kind of distract from the rest of the scenery.
My favorite part of this build is definitely the rockwork. It took a long time but it was well worth the effort. I also like the textured ground by using a lot of 1x1 dark green bricks at various levels (thank you pick-a-brick). Another cool but subtle thing I like about this build is how I did the water. From the overhead view you can see how it goes from darker water to lighter water. Underneath the water I put white, light gray, dark gray, and black plates and then scattered the surface with the blue studs to get a less dramatic effect of water depth instead of using lighter blue studs and clear blue studs (partly because I don't actually have a lot of those studs). Finally, I like the tree trunk technique using the dark brown barrels. I put a flexible rod through them all so that I could bend the tree without having it delicately balanced or toppling over while taking photos.
ike the barrels used in the tree. I think I did that once, and it looked cool. But, I am on a site called www.starwars.lego.com/creations, and that is where most of my online lego time goes to. I;m just not a medieval builder. Hey, show me a picture of a star wars scene, (star wars the clone wars) and give me the bricks, and I'll build it like a boss!
the water and landscape are really superb! as for the wind, well, maybe we should only try to build it s effects on objects, as opposed to water, it s not visible, but, it s effects are, I figure it to be the solution, nice try.
The landscaping is the stand-out feature of this build, really pretty! And the way you've designed the water and positioned the tree and Gandalf gives an impression of a windswept scene even without the trans-clear bricks. Excellent!
Lovely! I like the tree, and the water technique, and the tree, and the frame, and the rockwork... the whole thing basically. Awesome job! Also, I like how you informed us of what the different things symbolized. Absolutely awesome!
