Looks good! The "pine cones" are a nice touch.

Pine cones! *eyesroll* of course.

Here is the vice pine. Or better: my second: I like it. Used 0,5mm fibres for finish this time

Sorry peeps, I have been a bit off. Last years ´April I fell on my shoulder and for the first time in my life I broke a bone. End of February I suddenly got the opportunity to get the metal out of that arm, as it reduced my motion. Now it is off, I may work on getting it better. So my landscape had to wait a bit. Still: here is Morla. the tortoise from "the never ending story" by Michael Ende (forget the movie, read the book). It has been a lot of fun and practice. Hope you like it.

May you please tell me if this works?

Thanks, lovely weekend for all of you and stay safe

Ok, so next theme. I wanted to do a brook, or creek as you may call it. Something with a broken off bit, showing the roots and the soil that´s left behind when water finds it´s way. Plus a now calm mountain creek and a grass area in front.

That is what we have so far.

What do you think? More dead leaves? I want to do some ripples on the steps, and here we have long grass patches floating with the water.I do not have an idea how to manage that now. May occur at another part of the creek though maybe.

Hello Bea, I am very late joining in on welcoming you to the forum. Glad you are here.
Are the farm and Morla your first attempts at modeling scenery?! The results are very good!
Glad you are enjoying it all.

Nice! The vegetation looks suitably wild.

doing research for the next segment, a cave. Found out by chance that air drying clay, being just broken, creates a great structure for rocks.

Tried some colors, looks quite good.
