There are some nice techniques going on here with this brick built LEGO bicycle. Some nice stuff going on with the tree and foliage, too.

A stranded pirate by Jalkow (via Brickshelf).

A couple cool techniques to point out here,

  1. The Lobster.
  2. Use of carrot green (pushed all the way through so just the top is showing) to create a small grass sprout
  3. Use of barrels for the coconut tree
  4. Very nice use of cheese in conjuntion with other slopes to create the rocky island.

The visors are an interesting idea, but I’m not really sold on their effectiveness here. Would like to have seen a snot base, mostly blue with some with washing up close to the shore. I’m also not convinced on the fire technique.
