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.
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!
