I think I’ve finished up the setting for my next mini creation. It’s a forest scene packed with all sorts of mushrooms. There’s a figure still to come, but I wanted this piece to stand without one.
There were plenty of challenges. Leaves that can’t effectively be bent, rolled, or twisted. Various media fighting each other. Frustratingly slow drying times!
There’s plenty I’d like to improve or change, but I’m very happy overall. The turkeytails and lichens are the best I’ve done. The effect of the leaves in the water looks cool. And the logs are real good to my eye. So yeah, a nice little piece of modeling, I think.
Read on for a tour of the various mushrooms and other woodsy stuff!
There are seven species represented in this mushroom showcase. As I said in a previous post, these wouldn’t be fruiting together at the same time of year, so there is a bit of fantasy involved in the scene.
Thirty-five of the thirty-seven mushrooms are visible in the overhead shot above. How many can you find?
