Past few days I've worked on the base work. As I love making diorama/vignette scenes; I enjoyed it immensely. It is at this stage, every step of the vignette takes planning. The assembly of accessories, selection of items. Composing different elements, referencing black & white photographs of abandoned/wrecked vehicles, checking the placement of every objects to get them to sit and look natural and realistic.

The initial groundwork provides a base for further earth and soil added later. There will be some painting and weathering next though not too much as the groundwork currently is pretty spot on. Addtional debris, vegetation, litter will be added after that.

Hey Julian
The groundwork looks very cool. Love the colours and the tree roots. . Very inspiring work.

Hi Julian
How are things going lately? Any new progress shots of the diorama?

Hey Radek,

My vignette should be back in full swing after a busy last couple of weeks. I also need to get my hands on a camera before I post more updates. I know I'm working on this project for too long; I want to finish it so I can work on other stuff. It's time for me to move on, because I'm starting to feel burnout from this one.

Thanks for keeping up and your interest in the project. I'll post up some shots soon.
