Soo, today I´ve (almost) finished my new cornfield:
some papier-mache (or corrugated cardboard or any other base material), styropor to create a basis for the plants. The plants are made from wire (cut in short pieces) and cut paper glued on it. Add green color and that´s it. But cutting and glueing all the leaves onto the plants is very tedious.
But the field is essentially free if you don´t count the working hours and made from waste!
Next, I finished my experimental tree. After this first trial I´m not 100% happy with the result, but I´ll try another one with a slightly different approach - maybe that yields better results. Because I currently lack a decent number of trees, it will probably be used anyway.
Other components: cotton (synthetic) which I´m using for smoke and explosions, and some black primer + green spraying color.
Finally, I´ve started to improve the cardboard-buildings by giving them some structure:
|Buildings are about to get treated with a BIG knife!|
|Result - still a bit rough, still needs some detail-work.|
It´s still certainly better than:
The new version is a little bit too white for my taste, but nothing that cannot be set right with some painting.
