Patrick Massey builds great fantasy environments, then stocks them with entire armies of figures. But like the landscape we featured previously, much of his scenery is so gorgeous that it demands to be enjoyed unpopulated as well, to appreciate all the little details. Fortunately Patrick seems to feel the same way. The result: pure LEGO scene-porn!
Context isn’t necessary to enjoy this beautifully photographed creation. According to builder Nathan Wells, this is the set for a brickfilm currently in production. Frankly, with as lovely as this still looks, I can’t wait to see the finished product.
Of his latest creation, Gabe Umland says “For some reason post-apoc has fallen out of style, but it doesn’t mean it’s not still cool”. So true! Inspired by this drawing from DeviantArt member Dumitrescu Ioan, Gabe’s diorama captures the ramshackle world of repurposed ship parts on the bed of a long dried-up ocean:
But it’s all the little details that make a scene like this more interesting – and warrant a closer look – right down to the very comfortable-looking interior of an old shipping container:
Lukasz Wiktorowicz crafted a beautiful oriental diorama featuring three temples nested on a tiered landscape. Check out the innovative and realistic technique used for the roofs and the waterfall.
I built a factory diorama for my T-47 Sheridan walking tank a few weeks ago. Of course, as the style of the build is alternate WWII, the workers in the factory are all female. As it’s Labor Day here in the US, it seemed like the perfect day to post this diorama, and celebrate the achievements of the American worker.
Dan Harris (macsen_wledig) has built a temple with this magnificent mosaic as the center point. He’s also provided interesting history related to the obscure Roman god whose temple he chose to build. Make sure you check out the full gallery to take in the lighting effects, as well as his other Roman builds.
We’re left up to our own imagination to explain what’s going on. And while we’re thinking up our story you start to realize all the wonderful details that Grant has put into the backdrop: the effective floor tiling, rockwork, complex walls, and even the doorway arch… there’s so much I love about this silly build.
Ah, the Mos Eisley Cantina, that wretched hive of scum and villainy. At least they’ve got a catchy tune, though. Disco86 brings new quality to this familiar scene with his latest diorama, where he makes terrific use of lighting to give the scene an electric vibe.
