Aaaand it's me again,

As threatened promised, here's the MOC I was referring to when I posted this scene.

A River Runs Through It

Captain's Log, April 29th, 616AE:

In the early afternoon we finished setting up camp at the beach, and immediately afterwards I had two armed scouting parties sent out to make a perimeter check. Also, the royal geologist from Granoleon - who was assigned to my company by direct order of the Intendant Général des Finances - insisted to have his mission started right away. So I had him escorted by a 2nd platoon, and they went off into the jungle to take mineral samples from various locations. Let's see what they find. Not that I could be bothered. I'd much rather see a fresh water source located soon... and if somebody could catch some fish, that'd make my day!

about:

Again, not really much to tell, pretty basic stuff. It's a dull prospecting scene, but to add some fun, I tried myself on a little creek with some tiny (not so rapid) rapids and some fishy action. Still not too familiar with rockwork, but I hope it doesn't look too boring.

C&C welcome!

Vive le Roi!

Another great build KB, love the stream and the fish jumping out, and the vegetation and minifig-posing are excellent as usual! pirate_wink.gif

As to the rock-work, that is really pretty much something you learn how to do by doing it over and over again! Here it could use a bunch of smaller slopes and cheese sloops, and as you'll notice, it looks best over by the front of the stream where you did just that! pirate_classic.gif Also, usually - though not always - it's good to divide up more between the dark and light grey rocks, since it can look a bit jumbled otherwise, and you are using maybe a few too many wedge plates to get a smooth surface (rocks, although irregular, are generally found smooth in nature). However, you did hit upon one of the hardest ways to do rock-work right here - studs out and without a whole bunch of space up or down! pirate_laugh2.gif

Quite a pretty landscape scene thumbup.gif The trees and stream make the build look quite lively, and you have some great fig posing, especially for a digital build pirate_classic.gif

Haha ! A good scene ! I don't think you will be able to eat some fish soon, seing your sailors unable to catch one...

Nice base and vegetation! Those trees couldn't have been easy to make digitally? :wink:
