[dioramaworks] #009 JAP VIBE TERRACE custom diorama for 1/12 scale figures

a special diorama commissioned by Lullaby Winds anime restaurant and hobby shop, the owner requested me to craft a great looking diorama, according to the retail's theme. so she let me decide the theme of the diorama, and since Lullaby Winds' dealings involves Japanese toys and figures, i decided to give out a little Japan-esque touch, like terrace and a little garden here and there. plus a neat room inside to have a nice chat. so more details after the break

the left section is the indoor part of the whole diorama, the middle part is the terrace section, and lastly the right side is the garden all complete with the accessory to enhance the theme of JAP VIBE TERRACE

every accessory is correlated to each section where it belongs, like the sofas on the left section, the umbrella and the ebony-colored wooden seat on the terrace, as well as plants of various colors and a cherry blossom tree

for the left section, i tried to bring out some neat interior by using some tiles as the wallpaper pattern, along with the black tile as the floor, sofas are papercrafts and the table is made out of wood

moving out to middle section i made the terrace section, consisted of the wall resembling the entrance of Japanese traditional house, with the wooden slide door and the wooden windows, along with the ebony colored wooden seat, plus the umbrella that are mostly found in front of Japanese traditional confectionery house. the terrace flooring are made out of wood, plus the sidewalks, i tried to bring details like square stone and the grassy vegetations, so it won't look boring

the garden section is consisted of grassy flooring and fence-like bamboo background, a little touch of nature

this is the terrace section without the umbrella and wooden seating
