Whee! Finally, im done! I'm rather happy with how it turned out, considering that this is my first time drawing a non-portrait. If you read my past journal entries, you'd know that this piece was a pain in the butt for the fact that it's for an exhibition and that expectations kept changing so I had to change accordingly as well.
Anyway, this wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. This was pretty average, with nothing too hard nor too easy. I did have to change my shading style radically coz I've been doing portraits all along.
Here's what I used -2B for outline, 4B and 8B for shading -50x35cm paper (that's 5/6 of an A2) -I'd say 30-40 hours -Reference: [link] (I didn't draw any decal as the drawing was supposed to be done in 6 days, originally) -WIP:
Thanks in advance for the favs. (I do apologise for not being able to thank everyone personally)
Wheres bob, a 1/35 diorama of a man being run over by a tank,while the crew looks for him. first things first, this is not a realistic build in any way. i kinda used what i got ,so yea... its a desert paint job,with dirt wreathing,in a forest scene. i didn't really plan this one out and i kinda just made it up as i went along.over all tho i am happy with the results.
The tank: 1/35 Tamiya-M60A1 with reactive armor it was a pretty fun build. i leaned a lot seeings how its been awhile since i built a tank.i don't have an air brush yet so i hand painted everything.i lost the back tow hook and forgot to put Polly caps in the back tank sprockets .over all i am impressed that i didn't break anything and only lost one part.i have left off a few detail items, i feel like the piece didn't really need then( i might use them latter)
the Figurines 1/35 academy idf tank crew i have never really done figurines before,and this was pretty fun. bob came from this set and my wife suggested that he should be being run over.after that i just couldn't resist!
The base. this was a quick job.some random board from the barn,that i cut to fit and painted black.some rocks and sticks from outside and some dollar store moss.
man i learned a lot during this build. i the biggest lesson i learned was planing. i dint have a plan going into this(was a t model store and just bought whatever) in my next build i am gonna try to plan as much as possible before hand and improve upon what i have learned. got a couple of weeks or random stuff(maybe some papercraft) and them i am on to my next diorama
oh and please be gentle if you critic my work, i am still new to making models( about 2 years in) and thanks if you take the time to critic it, i hope on improving my skills throu the years.
