Post by: CustomCreator on May 10, 2017, 01:19:37 PM
Sorry I've been MIA, but my laptop has been in the shop for almost a week. This means props for the alley are on hold. Bought some do a on Monday, and officially started my Zelda inspiredcastle ruins. This will be a courtyard, and hallway. Fresh cuts

I feel you pain mate, carving foam board is a long and tedious process!  It looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks everyone!

With each build, I try and challenge myself to try new techniques. This build will incorporate at least 4 new things for me. The first being the amount of carving. The second? Foliage. What's a courtyard (even an abandoned one) without plants? Still needs some "fluffing", but there are 2 more coming. 100% scratch built.

Thanks gents! Another quick night at the workbench. Made a half wall (first broken wall). This will be on magnets so you can remove it for photo shoots.

Trying my hand at stained glass. Notice the "subtle" Tri-Force?? :)

Needs some cleaning up (back of glass), and a small frame behind to block the light around it (same with door). All still a big WIP.

Thanks everyone. Been MIA from the bench again (summer). Now that fall is starting to settle in, I'll probably get back at this one. Did some structure work tonight (magnets), and installed the lights temporarily to get a feel for them. I think I am going to like them!
