About this creation
MELO Group!
My category: Gollum's riddles; time!

First of all, this mosaic presented a huge challenge; the picture I chose was very dark and of course, Lego has a limited greyscale. I wasn't too happy with the chin nor top of his head, but overall, it turned out all right.

The landscape was pretty cool. Credit to Blake Baer for the duck design! Trees inspired by Grant Davis.

I could have made the bear better, but it was annoying me so much I felt like doing something nasty. I got so angry. Inspired by Legopard.





Time devours birds.



Also beasts.



And trees.



And nice daisies.

Well, that's it! I hope to see you in round 2!
