    You should open up a few of the sides on your diorama so we can actually see into the arena instead of being restricted to looking in from the top. Nice job with the character, he has a lot of personality. Good luck with the rest!

    Yeah, character is looking nice - as Spacey said, open up the arena. Maybe smash down a couple of the pillars and make it look ruined? :)

    i still need to model the elite knight and to add the grass on the floor and walls.

    i was also thinking of putting Sif in the scene (even if it´s not lore friendly). let me know what u think about it :)

    so, i finished the textures of the elite knight.

    this is the result of the whole thing so far. Next step is gonna be to fix the textures of the outer walls and to finish to add all the vegetation.

    *UPDATE*

    Love the concept and the models, but the overall diorama is lacking still. I think it needs some more dynamic lighting somehow to bring the eye to the interest point(s). Or perhaps a more dynamic pose for Artorias. The concept picture you posted is so cool because you can tell there is action - they are in the middle of a fight. The diorama doesn't really convey that.

    yeah, your´re right. i´m trying some different poses for artorias.
    i also want to add lightrays entering the arena. i think the contrast between the dark in the lower part and the light in the upper will help the focal point of the composition.

    thx alot for the feedbacks! :D
  • evilblah
    Wow, awesome work. I agree that the diorama needs a little more. Have you thought about taking the dragon covenant and flipping it upside down and attaching the bottom of the covenant to the bottom of the arena? To create a mirrored effect? Just a thought and it might open the diorama up a little.

    that would be great but the problem will become the trees (they need something on top).

    this is the result so far. i changed position of both characters and also the pose of artorias. i´m pretty happy of the result.
    I´m still not sure about the ground piece in the middle and i was thinking to switch to something more scattered (kinda like the one of the "dishonored" diorama by AzzaMat).

    looking awesome! I really like the dragon! just a suggestion, but you could try creating cube geo thats the same size as one of the stone tiles and texture it the same but with some cracks and place it over some random tiles. I did a quick paint over to better describe what I'm trying to say. u1a3.png

    I feel if you do this it will make the floor seem less flat and would break up the tiling.
