Tree of Woe
A skeletal and evil corruption infested this tree. Now people wander in the swamp and lose their life to the undead that live here.
About this creation
My idea behind this creation was a dark and murky swamp, where evil has altered the very nature of things. The black streaks running up the tree are meant to represent this corruption. Look closely, the skeletons are only coming out of the black portions. I wanted there to be a drowning, hypnotic sound that would send wanderers into a trance as they are drawn towards their death.

The tree itself does need work. The limbs are too flat, they need to reach up more and be spaced more orgainically. I've heard the comment that I need to add eyes to the tree, but this will never happen, the tree itself wasn't supposed to be alive.

The very idea of a corrupt tree is darkly wonderful and the concept rings true of any number of great fantasy tales - furthermore, you've rendered it beautifully in Lego. This stand-alone piece makes for a great, highly detailed Vignette but it could easily be incorporated into a larger, dark and mystical Lego Diorama that would tie in wonderfully with the imminent release of Lego's new Catle VS the Realm of the Undead line due out end of June. A great, unique and inspired creation certainly worthy of 5 smileys!

not to bad dude, I like how there are skelotal remans all over the place, it make it look very scary. But you should take the others advise, it needs eyes! And its just not very treeish, try making it taller and with more branches. Also try to make some of them movebal, then it could pick up the poor little mini figs. lol. Also try to have somemore grouth on the tree, like some vines and stuff hanging from it, it will give it the more "deep in the creepy forest" look. it needs some work, but could become a very creepy moc!

It looks awsome! I like the atmosphere you gave this MOC. The swamp and skeletons. It all adds to the creepiness of the MOC. I like that you didn`t have to many skeletons cramed up in there or it might have looked like a battle took place.

Cool & original idea, maybe you should put some mean eyes on the tree? Nice overall model, good job!

Though the Lego man has the most troubled look on his face, this tree, though large and gloomy, isn't as scary as can be. Consider adding, oh, maybe some eyes.
