First 20 Trees

One of my favorite things to build in microscale is landscaping. I love all the trees and greenery. I’ve been trying to expand my repertoire and develop some reference content for other builders, so how about I build a 100 different trees!

I’ve followed a number of artists through 100 day challenges. The plan was to post a new tree every day for 100 days. I’m using my Instagram account for this challenge, as that platform seems perfect for small builds.

100 is a daunting number. I set the bar high early on by deciding that I wouldn’t do any color variations. Each tree would use different elements (or configurations). I did opt to build ahead and had dozens built before I posted the first. As of right now I have 70 distinct trees on my work table.

So far, I’ve posted 20.

There is nothing new under the sun. I don’t claim to have been the first to use any of these designs. I’m always filing away cool parts of other builder’s models for reuse down the road.

If you’re interested in following along, find me over on Instagram as @brick_root. I still have a lot of awesome designs to share!
