[dioramaworks] #005 TEMPLE GROUNDS - custom diorama for 1/12 scale action figures

this TEMPLE GROUNDS diorama was heavily inspired by the architectural identity of those seen in the sanctuary in Saint Seiya's universe. especially the pillars and the garden intact with those elements, so in this project i tried to bring and compose those elements according to my liking and here it is... so more info after the break

the pillars just kinda messed up, on the vertical lines i still couldn't find a way to make straight lines, i used thin iron wire and glued it with some green grassy powder to make it look as if vined plants lived among the pillars

i made another part of putty sculpted hardboard as the background to give it an isometric impression

this is another combination of arrangement i just rotated the base and placed the pillar as the backdrop on the higher ground level

Specifications :
Dimension : 40 cm x 36 cm x 25 cm
Weight : 4,5 kg
Scale : ranged from 1/16, 1/12, and 1/10 figures
Base : Hardboard Plank 
Adhesives : PVC white glue 
Props : Green grassy powder, green foam, epoxy putty

this one does not really satisfy me just yet, gotta say it's really rough, and needs serious improvement and the weight is one setback that i am looking forward to decrease, i hope i can improve better in the near future
and this is how i use the diorama to shoot figures, linked below


that's it for my fifth handmade diorama, and i'll be posting more in the near future, feedbacks are especially welcomed... so don't hesitate to write what's on your mind, even if it's the worst~
Thanks for Viewing and... until NEXT time!!!


over & out!!!
