The search for Tanatloc. Mk.II
Inspired by Mocpages, a complete rebuild of a little vignette with Johnny Thunder.
About this creation
Previously, on Johnny Thunder’adventures…

Johnny Thunder is a ZE BIG hero
he is in a BIG Amazonian river
Looking for a BIG treasure
Hidden under a BIG statue
In a BIG swamp
A BIG moisture
With BIG crocodiles
BIG dangers
He is in a BIG *%µ£¤&#!!

Ok, that’s for the story… ;)





This is not a build I wanted to do. It’s a build I HAD to do. The first attempt gave me some contructive comments about the “blocky effect” of my vignette.
After nearly one year hanging around on MOCpages, it was time for me to apply all the technics discovered.

















First lesson: WATER.
In my build, the challenge was to represent dirty, stagnant green and muddy water. I had two solutions: first I tried with SNOT technics like Glory Forever 's impressive MOC.
The result was neat and clean but no color could really make it. So?...

Thoy Bradley
What else?...

I was amazed by his technic with trans dark blue tiles to represent rivers and lakes.
The TDB tiles’ solution came logically. The difficult part was to “brake” the blue effect to come up with muddy water. Finally, there’s nearly no blue plate under the tiles but a mosaic of green, reddish brown, lime, even black and DBGray. I’m not totally satisfied but it’s the best result I had.
If you have better solutions, please let me know.







Following lessons: Trees, rocks and vegetation.
I wanted to keep the “effect” given by the pics of an impenetrable jungle. Pretty tough, though.
I was inspired by awesome creations about nature of : , , , , , , , , ,

Quoting Ru Corder Nicely done jungle! It looks a tad busy, but I bet jungles are :P
That is maybe the best comment I could receive for this Moc. No kidding, even if it's "too much" (and indeed pictures were hard to take), it means I reached my goal... Thanks, Ru!!!

Quoting Nick Barrett Ah, I've lost the race this time...
In France, we are pretty found of 2nd place... Some kind of fate? ;) Thanks so much for your comment, Nick. Wether it comes in first or last position...
Quoting I'm going to have another look at the pictures to see if I can find those green men, and pick up a few landscaping tips. :-)
So, did you find them? lol It took almost 5 minutes to my girlfriend and his son to find them... and they had the noze stuck on it (evil-laugh!!)

Ah, I've lost the race this time... never mind, I really enjoyed this and I'm amazed at your landscaping - it's something I can't do very well. Your muddy water effect seems to work very well. I'm going to have another look at the pictures to see if I can find those green men, and pick up a few landscaping tips. :-)

Impressive! I really like the lushness of the jungle and how you put the crocodile in the water. I think this could be improved by tiling the 2 stud wide border, but otherwise it's fantastic. Great work!
