Thought I'd try my hand at making a vig for the new contest:

*Updated*





Not entirely finished yet, still fixing some of the oddly colored parts and toying around with different techniques for the gifts, would love to hear some critique on this to improve it Smile

Personally, I like what you've done Very Happy . For the gifts, I believe lego has printed pieces to look exactly like gifts...at least the top part with the bow and everything. If you had some, those would work well. For adding something, you might be able to sneak in a fireplace for Santa to get through at the base of the tree, but it might get too cluttered. Anyways, great job so far.

I knew a Star Wars Holiday Special reference would appear sometime. I like the tree, but don't ewoks live on Endor, and Wookies live on Kashyyyk?

Pretty cool vig.

Win! I was waiting for a Life Day one actually; what would a Holiday Star Wars contest be without the Holiday Special? Very Happy

Nice. The mian things I think need inproving on is the gifts. They could use better colour and maybe abit more interesting design then just a block with a plate on it. And the lights, you should make them all grey or black or green, isntead of a mix of grey black and blue.

Yep the gifts is the main thing I'm playing around with, the lights I've been digging through all my boxes and bags trying to find all matching colors.

Just one thing to say: Sure beats the one I'm working on.

You've got a good shot at winning.

The presents look much better now.

A suggestion with the lights is if possible, try to us the 1x1 bricks with the clippy part on the top of it. I'm sorry about the terrible description, but I can't think of any better way to say it.

1x1 tile with clip on top, I assume.

Ooh, love the Wookiees. Is the one below the tree old brown to signify being Chewie?

Personally, I like the plate-built gifts. Claw-tiles would work, but the round plates are fine.

Well technically they're all Chewie Laughing Never got any of those new wookiees from that ROTS set so I used a few Chewbaccas instead. I guess any one of them could be Chewbacca, really meant to just be Wookiees celebrating Life Day.

Yes that is a better way to describe it Razz
