Hi Doug! :wave:

Thank you, Doug.

Yes I am trying to see if I can build my 'pied à terre' here and you know when I focus on one forum the rest vanish for me.

Don't worry, the stream will keep bringing plenty of news.


Daniel

Daniel, thank you for the hints to use nature for tree materials.
I live in a some what arid area so we have different types of wild plants.
I am confident that something will be usable, if I can only use my imagination well enough.

THE GLYCERINE ARRIVED!!!

And of course the already drying leaves may wait ...







...but the green ones doesn't because they MUST stay green:







The green soup doesn't seem much, but there are a dozen tree armatures submerged and leaves enough for the whole year.
Just I couldn't remember how long and how warm should they stay into the microwaves so what I did?
Of course!: I simply skipped the microwave.
The result will be visible in a few days but I think once dried it all will remain green for a couple of years and then slowly fade away.
And that is o.k. for me because by then I will be modeling a fall scene... :Crazy:

My pleasure.

It doesn't matter in what type of area you live, there is always at least some nature.
The point is not to hold an idea in mind, but to really pay attention to the nature before your nose and learn it's specific language there.

Arid zones swowish greens but more of the silver or gray ones.
Also more thorns which you can model with very short static grass, without need of an applicator: just spraying a bit of glue on the plants and spreading a little of the clear grass with your fingers.

Also the terrain may tend to show more sandy and yellowish or redish depending on the region...

One of the main things is that in arid areas the weathering shows a very different spectrum of colors than a humid one: wood tends to turn gray or redish and every color seems to be playing with silver...

Iron rust tends to give in arid areas the most beautiful range of browns from almost black to pink, yellow and even red...

Well, all the above is not what you 'should' do, because are only ideas from someone's mind who never lived in an arid area, but may help to smile a bit once you start studying the real thing.

The less you think while looking the more you see.[toast]

Thank you, dear friend.

Great that you like your disciple's work!!!

But beware:

I still remember when you kicked my ass to get me modelling,

so I have the right to do the same to you if you don't wake up and get back to your workbench and camera!!!


Daniel

I LOVE the trees!

Great detail of putting dead leaves underneath everything, as that is a detail so many people forget to include.

Thank you, Lee.

You know how it works: you bring the material to the scene and they start telling you what to do.

It works great at least as long as our silly mind doesn't start 'thinking' and wanting to lead.:us:
