[COR-FB] Settling Outside Damaborg

Recommended Posts

Ever since they had left Damaborg proper and headed out toward the mountains, she couldn’t help but think the clouds looked like elephants.

I agree - the roof of the wagon, leaves in the water, mountain with top made of upside down curved slope - all is wonderful!) I love attention to the details)

Looks amazing, I love the background and the wagon! 

(Ps The man in the wagon could have had use of a tricorn hat)

Love this covered wagon design!  Great colors too, the olive, nougat, and dark tan work super well with those sky blues and the bright orange birch trees!

I've been battleing with a good conestoga wagon since I got the horse trailer. Marvelous! I like the idea of the brick backdrop a lot.

It's a very beautiful landscape. The mountains, trees, houses, clouds, sky and sun in the background look good. Even a squirrel can be seen. The covered wagon is very nice and well built.

The wagon is great, also the backdrop is far more advanced than the ones I am using.

I also like that the water looks like the sky. Somehow, I am reminded of Colorado, but I don't know why... :pir-grin:

Thanks to whoever frontpaged this! I had assumed the Western version of the build would be the main one, but the BoBS version is getting more attention!

Thanks!

Was originally going to make two wagons, but the build wasn't quite big enough to not look cluttered.

Here are some more BTS shots of the wagon canvas:

Thanks! I think the leaves in the water and cirque glacier SNOT background are my favorite details too

Thanks! The wagon ended up being 5 studs wide, which led me to lean on 3x plates more than I had planned!

Agreed re: tricorne. Perhaps this fellow has unfolded his tricorne flaps for maximum sun protection :pir-grin:

Thanks! Yes I tried to pull the foreground and background together by using bright light blue for the stream as well

Thanks! Excited to see what you come up with for a wagon. I put some BTS shots above in the reply to royalstick

You spotted the squirrel! Wasn't sure people would be able to make it out. I need to figure out a better way of shooting photos of a larger build like this one - my phone camera does OK with closer shots and pics in the lightbox, but this one was too big for the lightbox and used a difference phone camera lens.

Haha - the mountains around Damaborg look *somewhat* like Colorado :pir-grin:

I got the idea for this more detailed backdrop from Hunter Erickson / Koschei. He has some gorgeous ones

Great use for the Duplo bricks, and the black border around the sky is a nice touch!

Thanks! Because it is going to be displayed at a museum for the summer I wanted to use Duplo so that I didn't lose all my bricks for the next few months! My kids have a ton of Duplo so I figured they could spare the 100 or so bricks and plates necessary to make the base.

Here are some BTS shots of the Duplo brick base:
