I definiatley like the tree. It does look like the kind of tree I associate with dinosaurs (if that makes sense. Maybe add a cave or something. I say this because the vig just seems like grass and stuff on a plate, with the tree being the centre of attention. Maybe that was your intention. But I think the dinosaur should be the thing being seen.

Brick-built raptor, please.

Nice tree, but you need to add more detailing option to branch out, if you make a technique, try to add as many other techniques as you may.

Green dirt. I actually did not mean the flower stalks as the grass, if your base was brown, it would look very realistic and also atmospheric.

Simple creation, simple critique.

Thanks, I agree. I mostly just wanted to show off the tree and threw the dinos in as an afterthought, but a cave would definitely have been nice.

Brick-built raptor, please.

If these brick-built things gain any more popularity using a raptor 'fig as a raptor will be NPU... But I agree, brick-built is more skillful.

True, I could have done more with the branches and trunk and refined the technique.

Actually, that probably would look good, and give mottling opportunity. Once all my brown is freed up I'll try that, thanks!

Nice work! I personally very much like the tree technique, very cool! and the ground foliage is nicely laid out, not too compacted, nor too open
You could maybe add another feature into the scene such as a fallen log, water pool or mud pit. Also, under and around the nest could be muddy due to being tramped on often by a giant T-Rex! however, very original a nice MOC!

Good idea with having trampled ground, that'd be a brilliant detail, and another feature would be a helpful addition as well. Thanks!

Oh, and it is also shamefully overrated.

Heeheehee... Either that or everything else is shamefully underrated... ;)

First of all, I find it ridiculous how much controversy this has caused.

And now, the good.

I like the nest with the baby dinosaurs. It's a creative use of those picees.
The tree technique looks nice.
What could be improved:
No "green dirt."
The dinosaurs (the T-Rex's as well) are the perfect place for some NPU! Don't just use the ordinary pieces provided! Make your own dinos! The droid arm could be helpful for the shaping.
Overall it's a good MOC.

Thanks, I completely agree with both points. Unfortunately I had another MOC eating up all my time and brown pieces, but I probably still wouldn't have considered using brown for the ground. However, I can see that it would be perfect, so I'm glad that I got that issue addressed in this smaller build before I do anything larger.
