Landscape sketch #1
A quick sketch for rock texturing, foliage, etc.
About this creation
I like to keep sketches of ideas for future MOC's. As the folder name ("The Sketchbook") suggests, this is a quick concept build to try out some new ideas I had for creating rock facades, foliage, and so on.

I've tried some SNOT work for the rocks, which seems to be working okay to me, and it's given me a lot of other ideas to make an even more convincing surface. Next time I might try more angles and additional colors. It's also got me thinking about new ways to approach waterfalls, which could be fun.

This was also my first attempt at foliage. I think the mushrooms are my favorite part there. All in all, not too shaby. Some of these ideas should work nicely when I get around to trying a Castle or Fantasy MOC that needs some landscape work.

I love how realistic this is: this is exactly the type of thing I'm striving to create in my MOCs.

I think this is really nice. I have been thinking of expanding on the types of builds that I do so I may try something like this myself. Just a thought for you tho, rocks are very old and have diffrent colors and shades in them so I thing maybe you could mix a bit of older discolored lego into it to give it a bit "older effect". as always tho great job, wish I could build like you!! 5 happy lego head for you!

I like the landscape, the rock does look a little bit strange, but I like it still. Do you think you would have the time to give me some reviews?

Fantastic studs out cliff face design. Great overall form & attention to detail. This giant rock is fantastic, reminds me of a pic I saw of a giant, upturned temple in Central America.

Very nice work. I like these plants and also the rock. In a bigger scale i think, you have a great landscape for your castle/fantasy-project. Make more of them!

I like mushrooms the most too. A few of those and some of Shannon's walls and I'd be set....But as far as your creation goes, I happen to like the foilage the most. The random, yet precise placement makes it one of the most realistic set ups I've seen.

Great work on the rock surface. I'd love where this could be going. I'd really love it if you made something closely resembling an Anasazi cliff dwelling... (hint hint) ..do you take requests? ;-)

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Lovely job on the rock design. Lee.

I don't know the geological term for the type of rock this reminds me of, but I've seen similar in real life so good job there. It being on a slant is a realistic touch as well. Now, when the time comes to put this to use in a real MOC, the rock just needs to look like it's IN the ground rather than ON it. But you didn't need me to tell you that.

Since I discovered mocpages some time ago, I regularly visited your site, your mocs beeing one of the reason I started my brick addiction again after 25 years :) So, my honors done, to the subject at hand: There is a part in Austria, called "Waldviertel" (wood-district) where there are stones just like this one. I saw the picture and immediately thought of my last trip there. So, as far as I'm concerned, it is a rock, not a shipwreck and a very rocky looking rock, too ;)

Just as awe-inspiring and mysterious as ever, great job Mark!

Very cool mate. The artist in me likes it, but the sci-fi geek in me loves it more as a mysterious remnant of s ship! Speaking of waterfalls, I'd love to see you create the Angel falls in Venezuela-to minifig scale!!

I was thinking the same thing as the guy below me. It does look more alien-esque, although the building is superb. Good job.

That looks like a wrecked ship more than a rock.
