The Tree
Behold, a tree! well actually this is my first attempt at a floating rock, with some neat foliage features as well. there is a full tree, complete with roots and all, on one side of the rock, and a stump of the same sized tree on the other, again with roots. the top of the rock indicates ground level, with the tree and stump comming up from the ground and the roots going into it. i really like how detailed and "realistic" the whole tree looks! but really, what kind of tree is better than a floating tree!
About this creation




















Top of the rock.











The dead side of the rock.













The deep roots, which cling to the floating rock.










I don't know why the roots are green...









The tree! which is quite tall (minifig scale of course!)











it's pretty hard to go wrong with making branches or leaves.











The trunk too is fairly simple, yet looks great.








And now the construction for this marvelous tree!
(in case you couldn't figure it out...)







The roots with the studs facing up. looks sort of errie upside down.










The bottom of the stump.












The tree and the stump as if they were on the ground.









The trick of the whole MOC, 4 little technic connectors.







Looks good for only being a tree.

Very nice! thank you for showing the technique on how to build floating rocks, that will make my upcoming MOC a lot easier to build. I love the detail put into the roots and the tree itself, it looks so epic! could you check this out? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/282421

Wow. If Outlands had a more brown-er forest, this would definitely be part of it.

Great piece of nature you grabbed out of earth ;) I'm trying building trees for long but all my trees are ugly crap compared to this.

Byrdy I would not have believed that this is your first tree. There's a really nice rhythum to the branches and i like how the roots decrease as they go down the rock. Looks like you've taken some time with it. Well done!

That's a very nice tree. Brick built trees are always fun to look at, and this one is no exception. Nice job incorporating the tree with the rock.

Very well done, two thumbs up! The only (minor) flaw for me is, that the roots are thicker on their far ends, instead of getting thinner... I wouldn't worry about them beeing green, A tree which grows on a floating rock could even have purple ones for all we know :)

Wow, unexpected, but very great, Matt. Good work! Nice use of those brown arches....those are hard to come by *sigh* The foliage is also very accurate. Excellent work!
