Along with various trees, I also built several 8x8 landscapes for my LUG presentation. Each landscape was for a different biome: desert, ocean, tundra and mountain.
The main focus of the desert landscape was the layers of rack strata, which was achieved using shades of tan and flesh colored bricks.
The ocean biome allowed me to experiment with several unique pieces for creating a coral reef.
The tundra landscape used sloped white bricks to create the impression of snowdrifts.
Lastly, the mountain landscape used several offset boulders to form a small hill. Olive green was used to create the impression of moss covering the rocks.
