No one can deny the beauty of an all-LEGO scene. Gid617 has spotted a castle ahead, perched on a hill above the forest. Excellently crafted with simple parts, this castle must be visible for miles. With its many towers and flags, it looks like this castle will stand the test of time. A lovely scene!
Jigsawjo continues to amaze with this clever vignette, aptly titled Christiansen Park. The most striking thing here is of course the rubber band trees and bushes which look surprisingly realistic - a very NPU style that I expect to see often in the future. I could imagine a much larger park inside of a microscale layout still looking great in this style.
Though the actual season may be winter, that doesn't change the fact that this is a beautiful autumn tree. The trunk is my favorite part, which has been created very well using some new common elements. I find that LEGO string really adds a nice bark texture to tree trunks (assuming it's the same color as the "wood.") It's rare for such a small landscape scene to be this detailed, but Legopard has done just that with this little creation.
The LEGO Castle building community often gets accused of having too little innovation and lots of repetition, but builds like 'Sergeant Chipmunk''s Stonecreek Forest make me think otherwise. The most unique part of this build is, of course, the fantastic wall technique, using what looks like stacked 1x1 round tiles - looks great, but I can't imagine it would hold up well in a fight.
If you need a refresher on what high-quality Alice in Wonderland art looks like (after that film sequel nobody asked for), check out this beautifully organic landscape by The /\rchitect. There's a few great techniques in play here, like the tire embedded in the ground and the rock-work on the crevice on the left.
