Today, I’m happy to present to you a project log for my diorama “Bloodstone.” Follow along while we walk through the process of designing, building, painting, and detailing the terrain elements of this daunting diorama.
“Deep below the earth, where the light cannot reach, lurks a twisted thing. Over centuries, it has grown on blood and sacrifice to wrap its roots around the heart of the world. And it is said that when the millennium turns and the kingdoms of man are ripe, it will bear a single fruit.”
My first foray into the art of diorama. This idea lived in my head for many years ever since I painted the first versions of the models for the Privateer Press Studio. The canyon lands of the American south west are like a siren’s song to an Artist. They are ancient, lonely, and beautiful. The canyons remind me of my true scale in the world. They humble me with their scope through space and time. I love them for that reason.
This was the first bust I ever painted. He is a conversion of the popular “Tribe Chief Morrow” by Raffaele Picca.
