I have joined a GB on YouTube that will end 28 of February-22. So this is a quick build.
The whole thing is to make a YT video about the build. I really need to make a new better how to video, so I thought this will be a great idea.
The theme is artillery, including mortars.
I had an old mockup that I have showed before, now is the time to finish that work in 1/72.
I have to missions with this work:
- Make a good “how to build a diorama” video.
- Make a diorama in the artistic way that I have read so much about lately.
Pictures from the first mockup I made a year ago:
A German elite unit operates with black ops in the north of Italy 1943. Hunting partisans, killing civilians and blame the partisans etc etc. All terrible things you can though of. It’s war right!
Artistic way and Storytelling:
The story should be clear to the viewers, okey it’s not clear who they are going to attack, but it’s clear that they are preparing to attack something.
It’s a little odd that so many of the figures have their faces in the wrong direction for the viewers. We se the back of the heads on most of the figures. But that is an ingredient, and I hope it helps the viewers to move their eyes to the wall were the diorama ends. Because you want to know what they are looking at.
Triangle: Catching the viewers eyes. The three figures standing in the field will definitely be visible in a good way. The figure in the middle of the three will have civilian clothes to really pop out.
The figure giving orders to the three will have a visible face to give action to the scene.
Circle: Viewers eyes will go their after seeing the figures in the field. The viewers are sort of forced to do so.
Two big squares: Balance in the diorama. A building to the left and tall trees to the right, less in the middle.
Three small squares: Details for the viewers to discover and look at after the first look at the triangle and circle objects.
This figure is custom made from different parts.
A lot of plastic is needed to be cut away from the Caesar figures. But I have done it before.
I will add some unusual equipment so the black Ops theme works better.
I added a binocular to this snipers rifle.
Some different photos of the new mockup.
I realized that the wagon was more interesting if it was laying in an angle instead of just standing straight up.
I will work with details on the building. I have an idea of this appearance of it.
Guys, I really hope that you understand what I am trying to do here
Please help me as usual, I need feedback, and I need to know if you follow my red thread I am trying to have in this project.
PS I got a new toy:
