Behind the Deep . . I took some additional "behind the scenes" photos of Eggplant's Deep before tearing it down. I've debated in my head for awhile whether or not to show these. I've called the set a "diorama". Now you know why. By using just the right camera angles, all of this stuff is invisible from the front and side-angle views. By only building 3 sides, I was able to spread out my bricks to build a rock structure much larger than it is. In my current WIP MOC (expect to finish early September), I'm using the same amount of rock pieces but it only looks about 1/3 as big. The castle, on the other hand is solid as a rock. It took about 4-5 hours to take it apart and re-sort the pieces. I'm definitely not going to build anything this big again. Talk about a pain. Because its on this low table, I had to sit on my knees the whole time while building. Wayy too much work. But it was fun to do once. The other problem with big builds is that in photos you can't really appreciate the size. A detailed 32x32 looks the same as a raw 160x100 to the untrained eye. Originally I wanted to put in a blue waterfall, but it clashes with the BLEY rocks. The big tree kept falling apart, so I ended up using a smaller one. The one in the photo below is about 200 leaves. Also the caves idea in the back was a bit different in the final version. Some people were asking how I go about building stuff: 1) The first thing is to make sure there is a stereo with good sized speakers. 2) Next, piece together a skeleton frame of BURPs and Walls. 3) Then drink about 4-12 beers while listening to music and think about how things are going to fit. 4) Build in some details on a section 5) Go back to step 3. If necessary, tear down parts that don't look good. 6) Order more pieces from Bricklink, and repeat step 3 until pieces arrive. Thats about it. The photo below is was about two iterations into the "creative" process. Sometimes I get too "creative" and think something looks good until the next day. I think thats what happened with the blue waterfall and palm trees in the photo above. I wouldn't recommend building something big in front of your TV. The problem is once it gets high enough, you can't see the TV anymore. I only left the Deep built for 2 days because it was in the way... Well and I wanted to build something else and it was locking up all my pieces.
