LEGO® Creator Robo Explorer Tips & Tricks!
Fan creation by MGuest. In this video we demonstrate how to create irregular shapes that resemble rocky landscapes. The scale has been used to reflect the robot model, but this method of using slopes is easily scalable. The end product is a small diorama that makes a good display piece and sets a story about who this robot is. The technique shows how to build without symmetry and encourages a little more of a free-form build. Different gradient slopes and angles placed in different directions can create the perfect craggy rock face. It also demonstrates how to use larger pieces (BURPS) within these formations to build larger and quicker, but at the same time adding detail to these areas. Although in this example we have only used dark gray, most colors in the LEGO® palette can be used to create colorful landscapes. The rock is finished off with a flower piece to give the robot something to interact with and to demonstrate how color can help liven this up. In the video you can also see how the layering of plates can create a more exciting terrain beyond baseplates.
