[dioramaworks] #001 LOST RUINS - custom diorama for 1/12 scale figures

Back in 2012, I started making dioramas for those 1/12 scaled action figures, the idea was discussed along with my friends on how we would bring around a great looking displays of kamen rider SHFiguarts in a better looking environtment rather than being lined up regularly inside the glass drawer. so one of my friends think, why don't we create something as the supporting environtment, in a form of diorama. at first i wasn't sure at all if we could make it, but after some brainstorming when i was alone, thinking a good concept about some cool looking environtment, i tried to make one, and here is my first handmade diorama ever, the LOST RUINS. details after the break
LOST RUINS concept comes to my mind, when i think about riders never ending battle, and would it be nicer if they get to fight in some ruins out of nowhere, an ancient place where civilization once flourish

and i started thinking what kind of materials best to portray these situations, out of wild guess, i picked stone and yeah it works, so i started looking some irregular, somewhat well shaped stone, and i got them and then i started to compose some formation of the stone to create this spatial sense of a ruin...

after that everything else is just easy with the grasses

and i test it by putting and SHFiguarts kamen rider Joker & SHF EX battlehopper figure and this is how it looks from above

a look from the front side, quite the eye candy
