This is a really interesting little scene. The snowflakes where what really started it though. I was just staring at LEGO flowers and it came to me. From there I was able to create a little 3D blend.
About this creation
I tried to put a little torque into the smoke plates to give it depth and shade.
This chimney is probably my 2nd favorite part( the 3d being my favorite) of the vignette. I just love the way the slopes and tiles combine to give it a ruddy appearance.
Hmmm come to think of it this is also a quality part of the scene. Snow covered sticks that look rather realistic if I do say so myself. Notice the hands as pegs.
I used the ever popular headlight brick for the footprints. It has the appearance of a minifig footprint because of its squareness. Also to the left of the shack you can see a mountain in the background.
You can see it a bit better in this shot.
This was just a little something to take my mind off my next project namely Bunker Hill. I am rather proud of how it turned out and I am thinking of not cannibalizing this though I am going to need the blue bricks. Anyway thanks for viewing. As always suggestions are appreciated,
Cute idea and very nice detailing. Thoughtful all around. I was tickled by the footprints. I wonder if trying to create 3D in the snowflakes by offsetting some with transparent cylinders would look good.
This is wonderful. :) I think I like the footprints best, together with the flowers, of course. :P Perhaps a minifig would have been nice, too. The only thing I don't like is that you can see the white background through the window. Still, the whole thing is brilliant, of course. :)
This is a great vig, it really caught my eye as I was looking through the new MOCs. The way you used the cheese slopes to give the chimney and the side of the house some texture was great, and your attention to detail is fantastic, especially in such a small space.
