Despite this scene not being Castle, it is very useful for trees. Look how you used that rope piece to form the tree.

The use of cylinders to make a round tower or wall is genius!
The trick to making a great technique, is to take a piece. Simply stare it down, think of a way you can use it, that is unexpected.
With the brick creativity is inevitable. Remember, to jump the brick you must be the brick!




The Grey wall syndrome:

Trust me, we all get it. Including myself, why not an hour ago I had it. It'll be easy to cure though. But only if you have the guts and pieces!

The Solution:

Take a look at how that wall is made, even that small adjustment can uplift the whole MOC!

Here despite only a bit Dark Grey being added, the MOC has a even smoother feel.

Just look at the many shapes this person incorporated.
So there we have it. More to come soon!
