MELO R4: The Hidden City of Gondolin

My entry for round 4 of the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics. My category this time was Gondolin, a hidden elvish city from The Silmarilion. I really enjoyed experimenting more with Elvish architecture with this build, as well as the colors and patterns. One of my main goals was to include as many non-square elements as I could, like the gardens, fountain and rounded base, which I think ended up turning out quite well. I’ll definitely be doing more elvish builds in the future, as it’s an incredibly fun style to build in and this ended up being one of my personal favorite builds of mine to date.

Credit for how to fill in the rowboats goes to Simon NH, and Marcel V. and Vitreolum for the harp and lute respectively.

Awesome! The rowboat in buildings is becoming quite popular now! You know though, btw, Simon NH wasn't the first to do it; but I suppose you mean you did it the same way he did.

Thanks Navarre! Yes, I do realize that Simon NH was not the first to do it, but his is the design I copied :)
