In a continuation of my previous post, here is the second in my series of small models demonstrating the look I hope to achieve in some areas of my Arkham Asylum MOC. You can see in the images below that I plan to use mostly dark greys and greens, although I will likely disperse a bit of light bluish grey through these cliffs to add a bit more variety and break up the colour. This particular model, like my last, was built with a fairly narrow selection of parts, so in the final version, expect some improvement. Once I have made my first Bricklink orders, which as I have previously mentioned will consist in the main of rock pieces, I will try and post another little model built with an improved inventory of pieces.
Due to my inexperience in the field I have recruited the assistance of one or two experienced cliff builders over the last couple of weeks who were able to give me plenty of tips on creating realistic and organic rock shapes (which is easier said than done if you ask me). Nevertheless, any opinions on the model I am showing here and how I could improve my technique on constructing rocks are most welcome in the comments.
By my next post I should have some Bricklink related news to bring you, so stay tuned for that, at last I can get down to some proper building of the first section. In the meantime, I have opened an account over at Flickr, there is not much to see there at the moment, but when I start building I will be posting loads of images over there hopefully as well as here at The Lego Madhouse so keep an eye on it.
