Lover's Garden

Built on top of this.

Zoomed out. A knight waits for the princess on the steps of a garden.

The railing and a letter are visited by vines.

Image
A side view. I would've put a statue here, but I can't find any light grey torsos.

Image
Still waiting...

From the top.

Another side. The brickwork was put in over the wooden frame.

Clever. Let me try to understand the inside; is it a pool of water with a steep wood staircase leading up to a wood chest? It's a neat idea. The first thing I thought of was the gazebo scene from "The Song of Music."

ahem ... Nice! I like the SNOT tile work & colour use especially. There is quite alot of detail here for such a small scene. Well done

This is very well done. The architecture and landscaping are superb.

I love the style of these MOCs you've been doing lately. This one is definitely as beautiful as the last, and maybe more so. The cube construction is great, and the landscaping is awesome. Very nice stairs, too.

You should keep looking for that light grey torso... a statue would make this absolutely perfect; especially if it was peaceful. Hmm, perhaps a dark grey statue?

There are a lot of interesting building techniques and compilations here. I like how the posts are done with the dark gray smooth plates sticking out.

When you look at that side-corner view, enlarged (and after toooo much coffee) it makes your head hurt with all the opposing LEGO element angles. Which way is up? Thankfully the minifigure grounds it for me. Very MC Echer-ish. My helm is off to you. :)

I love the archway design. This is very well done. The detail is just enough. I really like this.

Hello!


That's quite romantic. Nice at that.

I'd strongly suggest, though, to get grey 1*1 round plates for the balustrade. And placing something like this on grey baseplates makes it look less lovely. Better use green plates.

Beutiful! I like the amount of flowers, and just the general look of it. Good work :D !

God Bless,

I like the usage of the cups for the railing at the top. :)
