New islands are still being discovered! Take this one, by Brickshelf member Legacek.
SNOT water, a scary cave and interesting work on the foliage are some of the things you'll find in this MOC.

I love this MOC. The rock mouth is great, I like how it looks like there is the bottom have of the jaw coming out of the water.  Also I know I comment on this kind of stuff a lot but the foliage looks great. Just the right amount of green on those rocks and some flowers too.

Great find!

I really like this MOC. It has just the right touch of realism (rocks and foliage) and charm (cave and "horned" sculpture). I also really like the two "cut-outs" to see inside the cave. I know the two aren't the same, but for some reason I think about the ending of the movie Popeye when I look at this. I like that; it brings me back to my childhood.

It seems the Islanders are making their comeback, atleast I hope to see more in the future.
That skull shaped cave is what I like most about it, reminds me of the movie  King Kong (the recent one with the island in the mist).

Amazing find! Especially the cave looks great, but also the overall feel of the island is really nice.

Thanks for sharing!

I noticed someone posted that it seems like Islanders are making a comeback....YES!....It does look like that.  Aw man, the nostalgia of Islanders fighting pirates fighting imperial guard fighting....well....anyone!  Posted Image

Anyways, very very good use of foliage its almost as though you used a picture and went off of that, seems so real.  Good job!  Carry on sailors!!
