#282 TECHNIQUE DISCUSSION: Landscaping

It's Sunday, so today I will be showcasing 6 interesting techniques from MOCs on Flickr that you can use for landscapes. It can be hard to accurately depict natural environments, so let's take a look at 6 techniques that can be used:



1. Studs showing - plates are used with their studs showing to give a rugged texture - by Izavagooba https://www.flickr.com/photos/148115469@N04/40139794402/in/pool-legolandscape/

2. Patches of snow - slopes of white are added to plates to create a visual contrast between the bright white and natural colours - by Matt Hew https://www.flickr.com/photos/153134873@N06/25575608717/in/pool-legolandscape/

3. Slopes and curves - a mixture of different sized slopes and curves are used to simulate the natural slopes and curves of a natural environment - by norlego https://www.flickr.com/photos/norlego/40598609982/in/pool-legolandscape/

4. Wedge plates - wedge plates are used to create gradual inclines and declines in the landscape - by Izavagooba https://www.flickr.com/photos/148115469@N04/27104298298/in/pool-legolandscape/

5. Scattered sections - various sections of slopes and other parts are "scattered" on the landscape, to build up an uneven and natural environment - by Nick Runia https://www.flickr.com/photos/114956218@N06/38521474090/in/pool-legolandscape/

6. Marbled slopes - grey slopes to build a incline with green slopes thrown in to show mossy rock and break up the grey - by Classical Bricks https://www.flickr.com/photos/classicalbricks/40426548294/in/pool-legolandscape/


So which one would you use in your MOC? Comment your favourite, and if you have any designs for landscapes of your own or ones that you have found or used in your MOC, please share those as well.
