Waterfall in the Jungles of Cascadia

Dense vegetation climbs the steep slopes of the Cascadian Mountains. Where
birds twitter and monkeys screech, where plants flourish and mighty waterfalls
roar - this jaguar leaves no doubt that this is indeed the realm of mighty cats.

Some great foliage work.

Only thing I’d say is that from a visual standpoint it might have benefitted from some olive green thrown in there to break things up a bit.

This is one of the best vegetation builds I've seen. Absolutely amazing! The second pic shows off the waterfall best, IMO. And I'd concur with Kwatchi that a little olive green would have been good, but I can;t complain about the existing color variation with bright and dark greens in addition to the regular green. Awesome MOC! :thumbup:

Wow !! Wonderful vegetation, we really are in the jungle... the flowers are nicely chosen. This purple was the color touch needed.

 

Great work :thumbup:

Very nice to see you building again Elos! Beautiful work here as always, I really like how lush and verdant the jungle appears. The birds and butterflies make for some nice splashes of colour as well. Fantastic job!

Looks really good, full of details, the variety of flora and fauna is impressioning.

Thank you! I originally started it with three colours: Green, dark green, dark bluish grey; they make up all of the base. Then I added the waterfall (trans) and mixed in some sand green. The plants only had those original colours plus brown for trunks and bright green. The result looked good but kind of boring, so I decided to add flowers and animals for colour. I agree that olive green might have helped. If I had to do this MOC again it would provide a lot more colour and also more water, like a small pond in the jungle. :-)

Indeed. Without th purple it looked decent but boring...

Thank you! I have to admit that your jaguar tower was my main inspiration for how to make a jungle look dense.
