RENAISSANCE FAIR (NOVELTY PIECE)...(THE ROAD TO FAR FAR AWAY)...This is the 19th piece in my Ren Fair project.

 

CREDIT...Full credit for the suggestions for this piece are given to member Darsc...who suggested that I;

                                      A.  Do a road with a mile marker...

                                      B.  Do a road with overhanging limbs...

 

So I took the two suggestions and this is the piece that I came up with...hope you all like it!

Hah! Looks like a great starting point for an adventure! ::D:

 

Very nice Catdancer. You've given the scene your trademark fantastical twist. I like it.

 

Those trees branches remind my very much of photos I've seen of trees in the bayou.

Darsc...thank you as always! I am very happy that I did not disappoint you (your suggested ideas) for/in the creation of this piece. And yes, the trees were done from my memory of one of my old stomping grounds in the bayous...spent many a good times there visiting an old friend from the service.

I LOVE it. It's a DELIGHTFULLY whimsical, BEAUTIFULLY crafted piece. VERY WELL DONE!

malefactus...thank you for your comments and feedback! I really enjoyed creating this piece...everything just seemed to flow with the mushrooms, flowers, ladybugs, butterflies and the old tree with the hanging moss...this piece not only sang to me...it delivered a full opera!

It's whimsical.  It reminds me of Pogo, that sort of fairy tale element Walt Kelly sneaked into his art.

I found a big stash of Pogo books a couple of days ago. They are probably from the 1960's.

      With my wife and I preparing to buy a house we've been clearing out a lot of our clutter to make packing and moving easier. We've also been working hard to bring in extra money too, and this project will hopefully do both.
       
      Today my wife signed up for a craft fair to help sell the wreaths she's been making for the upcoming holidays. From what she's heard from friends and other crafters this particular craft fair is really eclectic and pulls in quite a diverse crowd. As she told me about it that's when the idea seemed to hit us both, why not try to clear out all that terrain junk I've been hoarding?
       
      So instead of sitting down and painting or creating my latest joke piece I got started. First up was a couple of single tent encampments. I made one on a rounded base to better fit in a table of terrain and I made the second one squared to fit better on a grid system.
       
      Both pieces have their good and bad points but like usual I learn by doing; no amount of research or prep work make up for actual experience. Which is the main reason I made these single tent camps. Hopefully I've learned enough to make any subsequent larger camps better.
       
      Next up are a couple of joke pieces that were honestly going to get made anyway. That's right, they'll be 40k statues when I'm done with them, besides Buzz looks kinda like a space marine already. I had some glue left over so I also started making some sci-fi barrels and I know I'll be making a ton of those.

       
      The last piece of the night is going to be a simple 40k watchtower. At the moment it's really just in its infancy. The main features are finished barring creating a door and applying some details to the piece. 

       
      Now before anyone gets too excited, I'm not selling any of these pieces online or anything like that. These are literally pieces that are made to be sold for less than five bucks or so and are really only being made to clear out my hobby hoardings.

      Here's the bones Cave Troll!  I painted some of the pustules red with white-heads on them...very gross and troll-ey.  :)

      Here is my Knight Templar.  This is the first model I painted after about 5 years of not painting any miniatures.

      Here is my Reaper Bones Ogre Guard, 77456.  It took a long time to finish the skin.  I had a hard time getting it right with dry brushing layer upon layer and several washes, but I like the way it turned out.
