[WIP] Mini medieval diorama
Posted 28 October 2012 - 12:13 AM
I've found some time to build and I've started to build 6 plate mini diorama revolving around the house I've had in my mind for a while. So far I've managed to build most of the house and some landscape (pictures some other time).
Here are a few pics of progress.
There is still much work to do, I'm still not entirely sure how to finish the tower and I plan to add some details. Some parts I don't really like that much, but right now I can't help it (roof), but all in all I'm satisfied.
C&C are welcome! Bye for now!

I like the house too, particularly the colour combination and that it melds into the tower. The only thing I'm not so sure about is the red in the roof

Yup, I agree and I have changed it after I've took the pictures. I removed most of the red, except the part where roofs connect, since I don't have black roof connectors.

Yeah, it bothered me quite a while how to make oval window frame that looks natural and how to avoid gaps those little windows tend to make. Although, I'll try to put black latices on windows instead of gold ones, it might look better..
Hopefully, I'll make some more progress this week and post some more pictures.

For the roof, I'd go with red/dark red combination, with majority in dark red, or the other way around db grey/black. It would give more texture. Wonder what it looks like now.
The windows are amazing. Great way to position them upside-down to cover the gaps. Although, I like them with gold lattice, I think it goes well with reddish brown and tan.
Looking forward to see more from you.

Not at this moment, but I hope that after I'm done with landscape and everything else, I'll build interior. Only tricky part will be making floors in the tower, but I'll think something up .

Keep in mind that even things that look finished, are not. I constantly change details and add and remove them. There are no vines on the tower at the moment, since the sometimes get in the way, but I'll put them back later. So much for now. Thanks again for comments and constructive ideas!

As for the other additions, I am totally digging the well/water fountain, the swampy area in the back with all the vegetation, and the new court with the statue. When you add the vines back in going up the tower I think this part of the MOC will look even more AMAZING!

Yeah, I see your point, Red/black roof came out of shortage of other roof colors, and I have a problem with connecting those two roof parts together in different techniques. I'll try to put all red roof and see how that works out. Thanks!

Thisbis looking fantastic! The ivy going up the tower looks very realistic, it looks as though it actually grew up around it. That little fountain is neat, nice piece usage for the tiny waterfall. Great work. I look forward to the next update.

This 'ultra-detailed micro' style of building is still kind of new to me, but I really like the direction you've taken the house in. The fountain out front is an especially great touch.
