...pretty bloody, I know...my dark side is showing...
Modelling the character was very challenging working with new materials such as Super Sculpey.
Because I like to place the miniatures in environments and because this is a vampire hunter I will start doing the base.....which is going to be a cemetery scene. Some quick sketches is required:
Now doing the tree...I used wire and paper tape in order to warp and create some "fat" shapes:
Next step I've packed it together and glued with PVA glue so I can shape it later in a tree:
Now moving forward I placed the tree on the base and because this will be a cemetery some bones and skulls will add an interesting detail:
Shaping the tree is a veeeery looong process....I used Milliput as material for filling the gaps. A more interesting detail will be the skeleton getting out from the grave:
My first tombstone ever created was fun to do. I will have to do 3 more and I will make step by step photos:
and another two
The tree needs a bit of texture so a cracking paint was the best approach:
I applied some texture for the ground too, grass(first layer, the old dried grass), gravel and sand...then all painted in black, a bit o grey on top and finally some brown shades. After that I've colored the tree and some dry brushing for the grass:
Update on my diorma...I've mounted the gravestones, some dry leafs and grass
more coming soon...
