Got all the rocks blended in, and land-slide debris done. I just have to add a few more trees, the I can start on the waterfall / pond feature.
An aquarium water pump will go in, and then the ponds will get thier surface details. I used different sized tallus to do the pond's gravelly bottoms. Intake and outlet fittings will be hidden, then all airbrushed to give a look of depth, and age-stained waterlines.
Then I can fill it and try it out.
holy #$%^ that looks awesome man.
I can't wait to crawl on it. Actually, I'm going to wire the un-finished crawler, and have a go at it.
All done (sort of)
I tested the cheap pump, and it works good. Dollar-store+1
I just have to install it, and do the water-area airbrushing. Stuff like greenish algae around the wet-perimeter, and dark silty areas to give depth.
Like this I found:
Here it is so far, with just the water areas to do:
And a video tour:
This is one of the nicest living room accessories I've ever seen!
Wow! Really nice man. Love it.
I just did the air-brusing. A couple different greens, and a couple different blacks, followed by a clear to seal it all.
Tomorrow will see water...
Got some epoxy mud smeared under the leak. That should do it.
And, the water pump is to weak. (should have learned from a previous post on trickling water in your scene). I want it to pour down the falls with some trickling noise. With this pump, you can only see the water slightly trickling.
Anyhoo, here's a vid of a very steep area. Nevermind that unfinished rig.
