“A quite simple, but very decent looking wall technique using 1×2 jumpers (the newer ones!) and 1×2 door rail pieces. It looks a little bit simpilar to just plates and tiles, but you can actually add much more texture with this one.” Simon NH
It is super easy to build a wall out of Lego. They have a few newer pieces that you can use to create more detailed (and less manufactured) walls. Even then you might need something different to help your MOC stand out. So, it is always good to be on the look out for new Lego building techniques. Some Lego builders are great with sharing their techniques, and that is the case with Simon NH. He recently shared a way to create a brick wall that is relatively simple. Using just 2 different bricks to achieve the effect.
Make sure to check out the whole gallery. Simon NH has also shared other building techniques. Check out this brick built gallery of 9 different options.

“Welcoming The King” is an almost perfect Lego scene. The biggest disappointment is that the display is not larger. A great way to show off your Lego MOC is by taking great photos of them. The overhead view with a plain or cutout background is standard, but when the camera is zoomed into the scene it can help liven it up. This is a great example. The crowd shot above, makes this parade look extremely lively, full on energy and sound. You can almost hear the crowd. Zooming in even further can highlight some of the tiny detail that would otherwise go unnoticed. For instance the banner (flag) saleswoman at the very edge of the scene is easy to miss. Yet here, the details have been brought out, creating what looks like a special Lego moment.
A Lego Castle MOC usually focuses on the main keep, but it is nice to see the rest of the castle and village. For instance this gatehouse leading into the city has been extremely well made. The classic Lego red roofs have never looked better. Check out the tiny windows that hint at a forced perspective.
