I'm stealing that colourscheme for blue fur...

Eyes look great!

sure go on, if you use nightmare black you'll be amazed how beautiful that color is. I'm glad you like the eyes.

i hope to tackle something like this one day, it's 5X more ambitious than anything i've tried so far.

 

You're scene looks totally organic, nothing out of place, killer conversion on the gnome, really well executed . Hopefully nice glass display case waiting for it🙂

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I appreciate it and I'm glad you find it inspiring.

 

@Fencig I hope you will find time to create your own diorama.

@malefactus and @Glitterwolf keep on building yours, you guys have been a great source of inspiration to me.

The world needs more dioramas.

 

I completed the diorama and posted pictures in the Show Off section, here is a LINK.
