After I showed you guys the sketches of the miniatures, and the drawings that I had hoped to turn into miniatures someday, I thought you might have fun with this.
The miniature is from Dark Sword, and it is based on the Larry Elmore Raven Stone artwork. Both painting and miniature are very cool!
I set about with my sculpey and my landscaping rocks to create the diorama.
I pressed my rocks into the unbaked sculpey, which gave me some fantastic texture!
It was a little difficult to translate the rocks perfectly to the image... and I had to figure out what the back might look like! Remember how I said that in 2D, I never had to worry about such matters. :-)
I loved the sloping angles of the rocks... and creating the fire as well!
I enjoyed the story of this piece very much. A wonderful vignette.
I carved the runes into the stone, and placed all the rocks together once they were baked.
I have some close up shots of the diorama coming, as well as individual pictures of the miniature itself, so stay tuned!!!!
