  1. Damn, well i guess that seals it then... giant chessboard goes onto the build list, heh. Thanks Garmadon! Thanks Basiliscus, Muakhah, Lord of Bricks and Mike! Glad you like it. Cheers en_zoo! I'm glad to hear that you feel that i have injected some of my own style into the build. Certainly the face, hands and feet are very much in Eero's footsteps, but beyond that i just muddled around until i got it to somewhere i liked. The background is just an Ikea blind - a tip that i picked up from Gideon i believe. It is great cause there are no visible seams between foreground and background, which means much less photo editing. Thanks Modular fan for your kind words! Cheers Gideon! I had a lot of fun building this, it's nice to break out into a different scale now and again.
  2. Ohhh... that makes so much more sense now, sorry, i should have looked at the reference pic first. (In fact, i think i have that reference pic myself in an 'future builds' folder somewhere, heh) I think i was confused by the shimmering ocean floor... knowing what it is now, it reminds me of those 'pools of death', such as Cenote Angelita in Mexico. The update looks cool - i like the cave, although i'm not a huge fan of the modified facet bricks for angled rockwork.
  3. Lovely build and a great way to round out your contribution to the 'Kaliphlin at Work' collab. I really like the wall texture on the lower level of the fountain building using the new round plate flower element. The shape of the main entrance to the courtyard on the right hand side is excellent too. Great to see Morphet taking shape!

    Eldford Barracks

    Very nice indeed! A very naturalistic colour palette and wonderful textures. The helmet as a chimney top looks perfect too. As others have said, a window or two wouldn't go astray. I also feel that a more prominently stepped path leading up the hill to the front door would look great too. Best of luck in the CCC!

    Writing for Peace

    A lot of threads have been left hanging in Kaliphlin after the civil war, so the letters are a great idea to move the DK's story on a touch, and get members collaborating. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I will have to make a reply moc, although i'm not quite sure what that will look like yet. I'm guessing Nammuat will be wondering who Muakhah is and just how much influence they actually have. Regarding the moc, i like the bookcase/lectern thing and the cluttered table. I'm not so sure about the lamp hanging overhead - it looks a little simple for my taste. I find the palm tree top element to be good as a lighting bracket, might be worth experimenting with if you have any.
  6. Nice work, i like the raised garden bed and the aqueduct. I agree with soccerkid though about the irregular base not deviating enough from the basic rectangular shape.
  7. Beautiful scene Kai! I think composition of the second shot is my favourite, highlighting the planter boxes and the great details like the mincraft head pot and small brickbuilt basket. The repeating arches make a great backdrop too.
  8. This build evokes a Kaliphlin bazaar perfectly! I love the choice of spice merchant, with all the colourful produce. Great work!
  9. A lovely build, the low walled compound is a great choice for a stables. The colour accents on the doors and window shutters really draw the eye and the bustle in the roadway is engaging. My only nitpick is that i feel that the columns to the sides of the horse stalls should have been kept tan rather than nougat, but that's just my preference.

    Kaliphlin at Work - Day 5: Daily Tasks

    Lovely little build, the tall stemmed flowers look great and as Kai mentioned, the dino suit tail is great usage. I wish i could see more of the background myself, it looks quite intriguing!
  11. Lovely colour combination here, the dark orange and olive green work really well against the tans. The 'crazy paving' style looks perfect as well. Nice work!

    Kaliphlin at Work - Day 8: Peddler

    An unusual take on a handcart, it certainly looks finicky to steer! I love how loaded up he looks, and the landscape with the cool yellow accent is stunning! (For some reason it reminds me of salt lakes)
  13. Very nice tower, it has some lovely texture and detailing and sits perfectly in the landscape. Morphet should be well defended with this beauty!

    Kaliphlin at Work - Day 10: Royal Dance

    Fantastic interior build LittleJohn, it looks suitably grand! So many lovely details without going overboard. The dance floor mosaics, opulent stained glass windows and the canopies over the dias are my favourite parts. Good job shoehorning the scribe in there too!
