CCCX-A Farmer's Life

Postby Eklund » Sat Nov 10, 2012 11:46 pm

This is a medieval peasant family’s home next to two beautiful waterfalls.

I wasn’t really thrilled with how this turned out, there are definitely some good parts, but some that also need improvement. I had to finally take pictures, because I was spending too long on this anyways, and it wasn't getting better. Criticism is appreciated.

Everything here is fantastic except the rock/waterfall thingy. I think you would have been much better off just doing that house with a large tree as a backdrop as opposed to the somewhat tack waterfall that you did. Basic;y what I am saying is "keep it simple." That rock formation is definitely not simple, and as a result, it sort of takes away from the quaintness this MOC could have had. I'd love to see you do a second, simpler entry. :)

Yep, I think you nailed the problem. We will see about another entry for the same category though, because there are a lot of categories. Anyways, thanks for the feedback.

I think it could greatly be benefited by having some foliage in a different shade of green.

I love your trademark birds, and the hand cart is really well done. Sometimes those small things are the hardest to do, and you've done them well :)

Thanks AK, I think you have a good point there, some sort of dark green tree would have been a great addition. I appreciate you noting the handcart, I usually spend quite a bit of time on small wooden details like that.
