Here are a couple of small vignettes I thought you may find interesting. The first was built for my fiancée for Valentine's Day and the second was a small scene built for a friend.

Very nice vigs, I made my girlfriend a little piano Vignette for valentines, but I forgot to take any pictures! I especially like that bar and the half empty bottles on the shelf

Very nice vignettes Basiliscus!
I really like the second one! The way you have built the wall behind the barwoman is great!
The foam in one of the beer mugs (it's beer, isn't it?) is a fantastic idea. :thumbup: I guess they're not driving after that. :wink:

Great job.  I like these everyday scenes and they definatley reward a closer look.  They look simple at first, but each of them has a couple of bulding techniques or object MOC's that are quite invoative.

Thank you everyone for the comments so far. I was just trying to show a few simple scenes. In my own view, vignettes are a great way of experimenting as you can create a polished product very quickly.

I am not very happy with the way the photos came out. They have a yellow washed look to them and this is because I didn't set the white balance to the correct setting for the light source I was using. I have since learned how to do this so future MOCs should photograph better!

Thanks mate! They probably took about 2 hours each to make, although the pub scene took the longest out of the pair. I was experimenting with different floor designs for them both and this is what took up most time. The TV in the pub scene is nice but in a larger MOC I am not sure if it would work because it overhangs ever-so-slightly on the right - I don't think you could build a wall on that side.

I appreciate the comments Zorbas!  :classic:  Yeah, it is supposed to be foam in the beer mug and they won't be driving after that! Not if they don't want to end up in jail  :oh:

Correct my friend! That's roughly what I look like in real life (although I don't have jaundice)  :laugh:

I am flattered by your comments Asuka! The chair was actually re-used from this MOC.
