Desolation II
Continuing in an experimental theme of ruinous surrealism, unorthodox color combinations, texturing, and a new tree technique, I present this rather cluttered 16 x 16 vignette featuring a crocodile-infested river, the ruins of some jungle structure, a decaying rope bridge, and an olive green and silver tree.
About this creation

A special thanks to Ian Spacek for giving me these awesome olive green elements and suggesting that I use the wheel thing as a tree stump.


I'm not entirely happy with the visual read on this build. The color palate has two too many colors to be sensible on this small scale. The water, though, is a rather rare color that I use whenever I possibly can.







Thanks for stopping by, and Soli Deo Gloria!

Quoting David the Fire Ninja Jedi Amazing work! I have a question, how did you get the LEGO string through the holes for the bridge? aren't there studs at each end of the string, making that impossible?
Thanks for the comment, David! I used the Lego string that came with the series minifig fishermen that has a stud on one end and a short bar on the other.

Love the tree technique. Crocodile made me laugh for some reason.

I like the bridge, but I think your first attempt looked better. >Eric

Te tree root is such a clever use of a piece. Croc head seems strangely funny.

Brilliant bridge design, and that water looks fantastic. Would love to see a large scale stream made like that sometime... ;)

The slight tilt of the rope bridge is a masterful touch!

Oh! I failed to see the use of Crawley's head in the river on Flickr. Fun little addition!

That's one great tree design, gives the build a real alien type feel. Excellent work!

I agree with David, real and yet not of this world. Great use of pieces and I love that water.

The colour choices are very good, sort of real world but not quite. The wheel in the base of the tree gives a smooth start to the trunk and those twosted pipes look excellent. The way that they twist and the shape of its canopy reminds me of a beech. Super bridge too.

Very innovative and clever design!

That tree technique is beautifully interesting. On its own, I think it would really shine, especially the trunk. Ians idea of the wheel is perfect. I almost hope that Desolation III is solely the tree. There's almost too much going on here subject-wise and color. It still looks great though.

Love the texture of this build! You have a lot of NPU's here. Looking forward to a Desolation III!

Quoting Rocco Buttliere You really managed to capture a unique organic feel with the tree. Great job! Will you be at Brickworld? Hope to see you there!
Yes I will! I'd love to sit down and chat for a bit longer than we did last year. I never cease to be amazed by the architectural accuracy of your builds.
