I love the ivy! It's looking fantastic, the rocks are so realistic.

Omg,I loved it!!!!!
If only I had the right stuff to build something like this masterpiece.I've always wanted to do something like this for years but I never could.
You have inspired me to make my own little diorama.

While I have been busy with several other projects (which are not all animal figure related) I have managed to do a little more work on the diorama and Kiki, you asked for more photos so here you go...

My idea is a slow moving stream at the end of the dry season where the water level is the lowest and the stream is just about still with the low water. Coming into the stream on the right is a feeder creek that has gone dry except for a few small, deep spots that are still supporting some algae and duck weed filled holes of water.

"Peace" might be a little wishful as I have several ideas that involve predatory figures hunting some of my hoofed figures! As in nature, everyone has to eat.

I also added the first layer of water and algae to the stream, basically this is a layer of sealer, when I start adding the bulk of the water I can't have it leaking all over the model and floor of the new space so I put a thin layer of Magic Water down first and this will seal any leaks and cracks so when the rest of the water goes I have a barrier to help keep it in place while it hardens. Here are a couple of photos, the algae and other aquatic plants will be 3 dimensional so I have to add it as I pour each layer of water, otherwise it will just sink to the bottom and look like it is just growing along the rocks, I want algae and plants that are growing up into the stream so each layer of water will have it's own layer of plants as well.

I have been really busy with so many different things I can't list them all! One thing I can tell you all about is the Indian dio, I started to plant the main stream with reeds, lotus plants and algae. I have also poured about half of the water. Here are some photos.

First are a few of the stream and plants.

I have finally put my lotus plant to go.

I also added some seepage to the rock face. The water has saturated the ground and gravity is doing it's thing, allowing the water to seep through the rocks and back into the stream.

Hope you like them.

Thank you all for your kind words and support on this, it is very time consuming and at times frustrating. I have just noticed that with the flash and magnification of the pictures all of the little errors and missed paint spots! When you are standing there you do not see things like the crack and unpainted undercuts like in the seepage/lotus photo here...

At least it let's me know where I have kto go over the landscaping.

I have also done a few smaller bird species for the model, here is a pair of whitebellied treepies.

Yes, Phil! Good cameras are cruel! But I belieeve nobody is paying atention to the little cracks or so! Everything is so magnificent, detailed and with a supreme talent, knowledge and good taste that we can only have very good feelings watching and following your projects! Again... thanks for sharing with us! Very Happy cheers

While my life has not gotten less busy or hectic I relax and unwind myself by working on my dioramas so I have actually done a lot in the last week or two. I painted the back board, planted the back side of the stream, and added all of the ground cover that will be open, the bulk of the base will be forested which means dirt and dead fall, not grasses and live plants.

Here are some photos of the progress...

I also have started the back wall's detail, it was almost dark when I finished yesterday so I will try to get some photos today and
show the rockface I have added.

I mentioned above that I had started the background, here are a few photos of what I am making. Right now there is very little detail, the rockface is done but the top is just a flat surface. I intend to hide most of this behind the forested area but I was very concerned with any part of the background that could be seen. Also Harriet made a female sloth bear and cub and I was thinking of her when I made the caves in the center of the piece, I also had the thought to put her there so I made a flatter area in front for her to sit with her cub.

Here are a few photos...

I still have a lot to go, I have just started planting the rockface and hillside. I have several more species that will be growing in the dirt on the hillside, and at least 3 more large trees in front along with all of the smaller trees that will be growing on the forested area. I will also use all of the flatter areas of the hill to plant some really neat display trees that I have done as single specimens.
