Here's something I entered for a duel at Bennos Figures. Didn't do too badly and I learnt a lot on the way as it was the first time I tried to make realistic water.
Had fun painting a 1/72nd carp and perch from Preisser. The figure is from Valdemar Figures I believe. I converted him to a monk, expressing my inner hermit!
I tried to showed the various layers of geology as the river had cut through them over time.
Originally the sides of the vignette showed the underlying stratigraphy, but this was lost when the resin water glued the shutters tight and I had to incorporate them.
The water took ages to dry, used capillery action to climb up my shutters and spread across the grass! When the shutters were removes the still soft lower layers started to bulge out. Plastic sprue was used for the branch / rod and human hair for the line.
