Before the days of Victor Revolword and the Corrupt Hand, life was much relaxed and peaceful.  Jars would spend his day down by the stream catching fish, dreaming of beautiful women.  Some days, he would go all day with out a bite, but it was always good day sitting by the stream.

A good day for Jars.  A fish on the end of his line always puts a smile on his face.

thanks guys,  I can't take total credit for the crane. I remember seeing something a year or two ago but can't find it again but I rememberd the use of the skeleton arm for the neck and just kind of went from their.

I have had it built for a few weeks and basically just wanted to show it off so I built this little scene.

I was lucky about two years ago, I loaded up on plant pieces from PAB walls.  so I have shoe box plastic container filled with leaf pieces, and a couple PAB cups with grass pieces.  I also scored a 9 cypress trees (and 60 other various trees) for $25 from a local Craiglist find about nine months ago.  I need to work thos cypress trees into a buld soon

With building in Varlyrio that shouldn't pose a problem. :wink:

Beautiful all round. I like how you have done the trunk for the big tree and the crane is just superb.  I expect you'll see these popping up at watering holes everywhere.

I'll have to second that. Also I want to point out that I liked the way it is photographed. Good work!
