#739 TECHNIQUES: Rocky surfaces

Today we're looking at 2 examples of rocky surfaces that take two quite different approaches.



The first is by Mark of Falworth and uses blocks of slopes and bricks, angling them to create the rocks. This is probably done with technic bricks and pins, but it could be hinges too, and helps to create a more natural scene with the slopes being positioned at different angles.

The second by Carter Witz uses a vast variety of pieces to create a rugged surface. A tip to make it look more random and natural is to never have two of the same piece next to one another. Using modified bricks to place slopes on their sides works well to create contrast too. Check out the post on Flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/145118906@N05/31928857628/in/photostream/
