Time for a little diorama, a welcome change from doing quite a lot of single figures recently. As I wait to get the various bits I need to start a couple of larger dioramas I thought I would get back into the dirorama groove with a simple little one.
What we have here are two figures I thought went together well. The little girl is from Statuesque Miniatures which I first came across when I saw IRO do a great little scene with her quite sometime ago (sorry IRO I was looking to include a link to your post but couldn’t find it) and the other is from Crooked Dice.
The idea of the girl seeking to find something she heard, with what it was behind her, was a simple idea given the composition of both figures. After that it was just a case of how to base it. I had a few options but for some reason I settled on this one. Not entirely sure I pulled it off but I was looking to create a dark cave entrance and the end result was just about OK. I wanted an earthy effect on the walls which I managed to achieve using … earth! A handful from the garden mixed with PVA and a little acrylic paint and then dry brushed and away you go.
Finally, for those of you who like a bit of fluff to go with a figure(s) all I can say is it doesn’t end well for the little girl!
PS – OK so the little girl gets away safe and sound!
