Here’s the second diorama I’ve made. Inspired by my first real mistake in Dark Souls. I spent more time than i’d like to admit running into the graveyard and getting destroyed by skeletons until i realized there was another way to go. The armor on the knight is roughly inspired by the hunter starting armor.
I worked on this on and off for a couple of weeks, a few hours a night. Made some mistakes, learned that I should probably plan a little bit before I start gluing things in place, and had some fun learning to paint skeletons.
The nice thing about the skeletons (Reaper Bones resin figures) is that they’re soft plastic; so with a knife and a little patience you can cut these guys to bits and reposition them into different poses.
To make the landscape of the diorama I just used some blue insulation foam and dollar store foam board to get the general shape.
Used more foam for the grave stones, and some wire to make the tree.
I covered the tree and the landscape in a thin layer of air dry clay and painted it all up
I wanted the feeling of a cramped graveyard like in Dark Souls. In the end it looked a bit too cramped maybe, but I’m satisfied with everything overall.
Hope you enjoyed checking this out
