Built for the Guilds of Historica Challenge 4-Elemental Mayhem, over on Eurobricks.
About this creation
The challenge specified that the entire build must be smaller than 48x48 or the equivalent of those studs. There must be some form of an elemental monster attacking some sort of human settlement and there must be a microscale backdrop contained within it.
This is a Water Elemental attacking the port town of Starbowl, in the Kaliphlin Guild.
A unique perspective for me, as I have never built microscale before, and the elemental monster made out of trans bricks is something that I have never tried as well.
Wow Kayne, your technique is really coming along in leaps and bounds. I've never made a round anything, let alone such an impressive tower. Great elemental, those curved towers of trans plates look fantastic. I like the design of that crane too. Only minor criticism is that I think you need to keep looking for the perfect camera angle to show off the microscale backdrop without losing the foreground. Awesome work though.
That round tower really caught my atention, marvelous piece of architecture, and the water elemental is remarkable. A word of praise for the beautiful landscaping too. Contratulations on such a notorious creation, I'm amazed!
Thanks for the comments guys! Yes, my arsenal is expanding....the AFOL community is a great place to learn a ton. As for the forced perspective, the challenge required 48x48 or that stud equivalent. I made the base 48x48 at its widest, but narrowed in the edges to save some studs. I save 196 total studs and all 196 are used in the Microscale area. I would have liked to expand it, but I had no room!
Is it just me or has your arsenal been expanding? This is quite a well built model. At first I thought it was a canon ball landing beside the boat, but from the angle you've highlighted the elemental is there. I have to agree that the microscale aspect is a little lost, but overall this is a great build with nice details all over it. Nice work! ~Thoy
