Time to reflect (vignette)

Looks great, and I love using orange juice caps as bases like that. Though I'd paint in to look like either green or white marble. :D

This is a sweet little diorama.

Wow, that's great!   Such a powerful little diorama with such a story to tell.  As a viewer you just want to immerse yourself and find out what their relationship is (was)...

This is very cool, captures emotion and tells a story. The cap is a cool trick too!

Wow, I also have two of those orange juice caps stored away for just this sort of project!

 

It looks like they can hold a lot more than just the one large figure I was thinking of.  Good work fitting all of that diorama on there.

I love this!  Vignettes and dioramas are something I've never tried yet.  My partner just started model trains so I am becoming more acquainted with trees like that and the whole Woodland Scenics line.  Great work, this is beautiful.

      So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.

      I've started working in earnest on my diorama entry for ReaperCon... Nothing like waiting till the last minute...
       

       
      First I figured out placement, then carved out the wall.
       

       
      And now I'm working on actually painting it up.
       

       
      I have no idea if I'm going to be able to pull off the OSL effect or not.

      OK, so this is one of those "good enough!" moments and I am calling this done! This, actually being the stage for many of my firsts.. My first diorama for starters, my first attempt at making a wire-tree, the first time I used an airbrush and my first (albeit failed) entry to a competition. And it is the moment to call it quits, declare it finished and present to you for much desired C&C.
       

       
      Unfortunately my photography is still very much lacking :(
       

       

       

       

       
      Oh and the reason I couldn't make it to the competition is that I have to go on a business trip abroad on the very day that it will be held.. Oh well, there is always next year I guess..
       
      Thanks for looking.

      This is one of my planned dioramas for ReaperCon. It is going to be a post apocalyptic 'bot shop featuring Bombshell Miniatures's Maelee and an assortment of robots. Right now the structure is built and partially painted with some weathering started. Still need to put a sign together but other than that, all construction is completed. What color do you suggest for the bricks/stone? The walls are a faint blue which is hard to see in the photos and will have rust effects like the roof.
       

       
       
      These are most of the 'bots as well as the workbench. The Maelee I am using is in my travel paint kit so I did not get her out for the photo. Do you like the two toned 'bot or should I go with a solid color? 
       

       
       
      Any other suggestions would be welcome!
