Love the tree! I also think that the kneeling skellie was pretty smart!
The only thing I would change is that this has potential to be made studless (except for the leaves on the tree.)

No bricks. Sad The kneeling skeleton is crawling out of his grave actually.

I love this vig VERY much, the tree is AWESOME, and the skeletons and the rat are COOL! I especially like the skeleton coming out of the grave, an the headstone is quite ingenious, great WORK! Hola Wow! Blue Arc

Nice tree, and good sense of action. You also win for using the old-style skelly torsos...

I hate not having enough bricks... but can't you use a SNOT technique? Like what CC did for his Post-Apoc vig?

I have 2 suggestions. 1. Make the tree look lifeless if you can. 2. make one zombie legless and look as if he's crawling on the ground. 3. Make them like have bodies. Maybe half skeleton and half clothes? Smile Overall I like it though!

Like Mike said, the tree could be made to look more lifeless and 'boney'. Like the ones in The Nightmare before Christmas, I think. White, paled and looking like a big claw.

How can I get that? Surprised


I can't make a different tree since this is pretty much my whole brown collection...

I agree with Thunder-Blade, the less studs in a MOC usualy the better and in this case it would look better apart from the trees of course.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooo!!!

Studlessness does not equal good! It's really not that simple. Studlessness is good for roads and paved surfaces, but for organic textures such as soil and grass, studds can be beneficial, as they add texture.

Yup; you need a healthy balance. Wink

In grass, studs are fine because you'll want to put lots of plant pieces on top. In torn up dirt, raised textures(done by proper usage and placage of 1x1 squares and rounds) are fine with studs. In snow, you want a balance because in some places the snow is hard and icy but in others it's soft and of a thin texture.

Anyways, to get back on topic, it's really clever, really simplistic, and not too wanting in the CGI department if it became a movie! Razz
