9th post - Photoshoot Scenery - part 2

Well, I must say that i'm really happy with the final result.
So, lets continue:

After the PVA glue with the sand has dried, i painted the floor with a mix of a 4/5 citadel colours.
 This is the result:



After this i dry brushed the terrain gaps with grey, but I forgot to take some pics :\
Proceeding, i used cork to make some stones and rocky ground and bristles of an old brush to make some tall dried plants. Here are the pics:





And thats the result (i've already started painting the rocky ground on the left when i remembered to take the pic xD):




Then i painted it all and added some grass. And thats the final result:







I must say i really like the final result on the last on... it's perfect!!!!!
Finally, the pics of the photoshoot scenery with the already painted statues, ruins and some minis:










And this is it guys  :-D  i seriously hope you liked it :)
And just for the Gran Finale, here's two pics of Athelas plant




8th post - Photoshoot Scenery - part 1

Well, i felt like moving away a little bit from the painting and decided to make a nice scenery for the finished minis. So, i'm working right now on a photoshoot scenery for my minis using lotr statues :)
I'm gonna display the images and explain what i'm doing ...

With this pencil box as base, im gonna make some terrain modeling using Black Gesso/Plaster:





And here's the plaster. I used a piece of cardboard to make it the way i wanted with some wrinkles and decals.





And here it is already dry after one night getting free air





Then i brushed PVA glue all over the model and poured beach sand in it.





And that's the end of part 1.
I hope you enjoy the final result (part 2) as much as I do :D

7th post - Aragorn at Helm's Deep!

This is a really hard to paint miniature because of the face, the beard and the tiny details. I tried my best, although i think I could have done a lot better :\ ...
Anyway, here he is... Aragorn!!!!
