Very nice indeed!

I really love how you did the graves with a different flock, subtle, yet clear.

For my personal tastes, it is a wee bit too clean however, but it seems to tie in wonderfully with your bases, so I am sure that this is what works for you Wink

If you ever have thumbed through a collection of poems, you'll find that quite a substantial percentage of them were written by Anonymous...it's good to see he/she has a SPLENDID looking grave site. It is a LOVELY piece...VERY WELL DONE!  thumbsup

I really love the use of that model as a statue of a poet! Wonderful stuff!

floedebolle, Von Kurst, Quase, DeafNala, JoaoS thx for taking the time to comment Smile

Quase: the burial plots also are slightly raised (~3/32") in addition to the lighter flocking meant to approximate highlighting/dry brushing



also, the design is such that if the tomb/stature is removed, the board can flipped over on any of my boards to create a flat dirt and grass section for open space or to hoist forests, etc.

The overhead shot shows of some additional details...VERY NICE!   thumbsup 
It looks like you have the bases for three trees sunk into the sod. The trees would add to the scene...probably.   What a Face

Very impressive. I think I'll make something like this in the near future. Very inspiring. How did you make the tome (casket) itself? I'm gussing the statue is a model glued on, but how did you make the rest of it? Store bought or handmade? Great work. Smile

Nice! So it was hand made! That's even more impressive. I got to try that one day soon.

PostSubject: Quick update: trees (June 8, 2014)   Sun 8 Jun 2014 - 11:13

5 of 6 trees temporarily added so you can get a better sense of final look
(I took them from another board so the trunks don't fit all the way into bases...)
anyway the cemetery is meant to have a bit of spooky woods feel to it

Very nice, although spookier trees would be nicer.

While the trees themselves aren't particularly spooky, they do give the Graveyard a certain overgrown, second growth, neglected look that Ghosts so love. Keep up the FINE WORK!   thumbsup

Great piece, not as good as your ruins, but still great.

That's really nice and has given me a good idea to use that figure as a statue.
