What type of project, with some cool landscaping have you been working on lately? It can be a diorama, a team-built layout you contributed to, or pretty much anything else as long as it includes landscaping. I myself am working on a Post-Apoc styled shanty town, it's stationed on an ice shelf with some rocks sticked out or the snow/ice. So far I have only completed a little bit of the project, the lighthouse portion. Permalink
Since Sean's asked us not to imbed anything, I've had to abandon my Apocalypsis series (extremely disappointing, but it's worthless to me without the music). So now I'm in the sketching stages for a castle MOC that includes a waterfall...kind of an extension to the design I used for the first Apocalypsis installment. The real trick is going to be finding the time!!! Permalink
It really doesn't, because it was never planned ahead. If I had intended from the start to build a microscale city as big as Shannonia is now, and had everything mapped out in my head or on a piece of paper, I'd have been overwhelmed.
It also helps that there's no plot or storyline to follow. When you have that, it becomes "I HAVE to build this" rather than "I WANT to build this." I was tired of building Shannonian skyscrapers so I did a waterfall and mountains. That whole section was built surprisingly quickly. On the other hand, all the different rooms for "The Other Shannon" are necessary sets for this script I wrote -- and it's taking forever because I have less freedom in what I can build, which makes me less eager to do it.

Oh I see, that makes total sense. Another thing is Mark had to actually write with skill so even without a diorama, you can picture it in your head. (Which is what he did) That takes loads of focus. I've been writing a novel for several years, so I know what that's like. =) Permalink
Okay, I've added the Battle of Mailbox Hill to this group. Now I realize that it's not really landscaping, but it was an interesting experment in SNOT snow, so I think it fits with the group's aim. Permalink
