I went into this build with the conditions that it needed to be small (because I only have a few spare hours), and that I wanted to expand on some techniques I've been working up.
Ended up with three relatively interesting things (well, interesting to me anyways).
The first is the rocks. A bit more choppy style than I've typically been building. I built something like this in the MOC olypmics but wanted to take it a little higher.
Second is the water. Trans blue like usual, but a variety of colors underneath. Blue, White, Black, Dark Blue, Transblue. Kind of gives it a nice look I think.
And finally the door piece. Usually I'll use the hinge. However, that creates a kind of a mismatch because the pattern wouldn't be continued. Here the door is supported from the back that allows for more detail on the front.
I guess thats about it. This is my smallest build to date, probably the only one that will fit on my bookshelf. I think it will hang out there for awhile because its not eating up too many pieces.
Beach shack yay! The rocks are cool and look more like rocks you would find by water. The water is very inovative. Especially the different colored under the trans blue plates. What is up with the manly girl feeding the ducks?
Wow, love the technique on the water, Professor. Looks like I may have to actually start paying attention in class. By the way I...(stop it)...I wanted to ask...(will you stop it!)...I wanted to...Professor! Phipson keeps trying to reach around and grab my...homework!!!
Heh, you call that SMALL? That little shack would be eating up a big chunk of my useful pieces. Those rocks . . . I don't even own most of those pieces. Yet how am I so brilliant, you might ask, even with my lack of LEGO? Well, you'll have to peek over at my paper to find out.
