I’ve been making a little scene to practice some scenic elements and attempt to replicate some of the cool stuff my little buddy & I have been finding in the woods lately. I could easily add a figure here, but I don’t plan to. These scenic vignettes are intended as quiet little places to retire to when you can’t get away from your desk.
I have built these little Nature scenes before and always given them away as gifts. I want one for my desk at school, but I also have a recipient in mind. I’ll probably give it away.
I started by contouring & texturing the ground.
I use Milliput to lay down some volumes. Lately I’ve been interested in spaces that slope down toward the middle of the scene. That’s what I did with ‘Far from Home’, my little hobbit.
Then I use dirt to cover everything. Bit of root to serve as a little log.
Cheap craft paint does the job for basic coloring.
And a wash or two starts to add some life in the scene.
Built up some vegetation with moss, grass, and some laser cut plants. I’m not sure I like the plants, but I think I’ll leave them anyway. It is an experiment, after all.
And still plenty of room for little nubbins.
