Techniques
A couple of techniques heartlessly ripped off fellow LEGO enthusiasts that I decided to try out.
About this creation
All the techniques featured here are shown through a color combination of black, white, and red. This is because
a. I have a lot of bricks in those colors handy
b. Many parts which are produced in only one color are often these either black, white, or red
c. The color combination is freaking awesome


Also, please note that all of these are from around last Christmas. Thus, expect a bit of dust on these.




Right off the bat, we've got this cute little 'feller. This is actually a SNOT technique that I read about in some article. Always good to try new stuff out.





Anyway, the red 1x4 tiles are easily removable, and take us one step closer to the heart of the technique.





With all the tiles removed, you can see just the white and black bricks, three of each.





These parts are actually only one element: this one, attached by placing the "fingers" into another element's bottom tube, as shown here by the hand of God.





Moving on, we have this...thingy. No, this is not a beach side hotel, so stop thinking that.





Here's a better view of what this actually is, with the top removed. Through the use of jumper plates, headlight bricks, Technic half-pins, and a bunch of others, a definite slope of 1x1 plates is created. Pretty neat, I know.





'Nother view. I used a double-layer for this one because I've got a bunch of 1x1 red tiles (now I have an acute shortage of 1x1 red tiles, thanks to this thing), and I felt it would've looked better with two layers.





Slightly wavy.





Sorry about the lighting on this one. But yeah, that's that. We ready to move on? Good.





The third MOC on this page, a pair of cacti...in the snow.





Another view of the desert plants.






Credit for the cactus designs goes to gambort and his cactus design. You should check out his page, there's some nice stuff there.






...but for those of you who are too lazy to click on the links, here's the interior.

Moving on to the fourth and final MOC: a brick wall! The inspiration to build this came from Shannon's Walls part 3. I'd never had the memory to try and figure out how he built the brick wall. Now that my LEGO has been sorted for a while, I finally found the time and energy to figure it out. It only took a few minutes.





For some reason, this shot reminds me of a highway... probably the lanes.





A side view...guess this kind of shot works better for spaceships, huh?




The back, sort of.





And a few tiles removed, revealing the awe-inspiring interior. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen for sitting back and reading this incredibly droll commentary.

I have been using techniques like the cactus one for a long time. Its great for spaceships that need a lot of exterior dots for putting greebles on.

Quoting Garth Danielson Putting these on a black background makes it hard to see what's going on.
Yeah, sorry about that. The current state of my quarters has left me with limited space and time. I just photographed these so I could disassemble them and get them out of the way.

I'm curious about the wavy red tile wall but I can't tell from the pics what the technique is. Putting these on a black background makes it hard to see what's going on. The cactus are good. see ya. garth
