    Something new from me!

    The Old Mill

    The Old Mill A freebuild for Avalonia There are countless old mills around the countrysides of Avalonia, along every stream and river, wherever the local farmers can bring their abundant harvests from their fertile fields. They vary in style, with some being powered by the current of the river from below, while others, like this one, are powered by water falling over the top of them. More than any other building in Avalonia, more than the castles, the towers, the palaces, the mills symbolize the wealth, prosperity, and fertility of the realm. May the mills never stop grinding in the green fields! And it spins, too, if a tad aggressively due to the only LEGO motor in my collection being a single-speed RC car. C&C welcome!

    Book III - Mitgardia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    @Piobre, first off, welcome! We are always happy to have new faces in the Guilds, even if you chose poorly in settling in the icy tundra rather than the verdant forests of Avalonia :) Second, there is a limit to how many pictures you can host on Eurobricks itself. So to post any more, you will need to link to an external photo hosting site. Flickr is great, since it is free (up to 1000 pics) and almost every LEGO builder uses it. It’s what I do, myself. There are instructions on how to link pictures and much more in the FAQ thread, and specifically about Flickr images, too. I hope that helps, and I look forward to seeing more of your builds!
  8. Glad to see some Hesperian messengers still flying around! It's been a while since I was back in Hesperia. Heck, it's been a while since I was in Druidham! I should build for the Guilds more...

    CDC1 Tale: The Hiding of the Druid Shrine

    That would be the effect of the daylight, yes. Any sort of diffuse light would make the central shrine lighting indistinguishable from the rest. I did take one picture with light from another source, too, angled like the setting sun, but the whole build just becomes bright and cheery then, not the dark and magical vibe I was hoping to achieve. As for layering with post processing, that’s beyond my skills, I am afraid. I have never used Photoshop and have never learned to use Gimp well. I mostly just stick to Paint.net, which is very basic. The rocks are not meant to be far away, though, but instead to be very close to the shrine, and so would be reflecting the glare of the magical light. Does that help see it differently? Haha, yes they do, though I did not buy anything specially for this build, so it was not costly in that sense (building the collection to this point, on the other hand...). Glad you like it; cinematic shots are what I strive for! Glad you like the vegetation. The trees were much more fun to make than the rocks!

    CDC1 Tale: Bob's Arrival in Nocturnus

    Love it! I kind of wish that Bob were your official sigfig, in fact. A great intro story. Reminds me of my own character intro, where I had a few Jedi with some Republic troopers crash land a spaceship into an Avalonian Druid ring...

    CDC1 Tale: The King Ascension

    I don’t know why I couldn’t get this to work when editing the post, but here is the picture. I’ll try again on a different device later. Looks great, by the way! Love the lighting.

    CDC1 Tale: The Hiding of the Druid Shrine

    Thanks! Thank you, glad you like it! Thanks for your feedback during the build process! The legend itself is one of the official bits of Avalonia lore since the beginning of the guild, so I thought I’d finally bring it to life. Thanks, Grover! The cliffs were the hardest part of this for me, such a slog attaching all the different bits with mixel joints. But of course the back has to get wider to allow for the wide shot, and ugh, it keeps going! Thanks, Geneva! The waterfall light is a light brick shining down through transparent clear (and not-so-clear yellowed ones from the 60s) bricks. Your brother thought that I should find a way to make the waterfall stand out, and that’s what I came up with. Glad it works. As for the rest, I agree that the lighting is a bit confusing. My intention with the black sky and dark trees is that it is indeed night, but that a bright light caused by the Druid magic is shining on everything, radiating out from the shrine. There is more light than I wanted, honestly, but the whole thing is only lit by a single small flashlight with a tube on the end to focus the light more already! And a light brick, I guess. But I get the criticism, I just didn’t have a way to fix it. The build is still together, though, so if you have any ideas of improving the lighting, let me know and I might try a re-shoot.
