Streets of Jaffa
Pushing the limits of a vignette, this 16 by 16 depiction of Jaffa's bustling markets and alleyways was a very enjoyable build. The dio is loosely based on a concept sketch drawn by Joseph Sapulich, but features a great many other details. The project began with an experiment in cobblestone streets, and while I think this technique could be improved, I am pleased with the way it turned out. Other details include a clothesline, a market stall, the furnished interior of a sort of yeshiva, a blind beggar, an alley cat, a rabbi, and a worker with a cart of wood. I have been trying to figure out a time period to place the creation in, but I can't decide on anything definitive, so help me out! Other than that, enjoy, and make sure to rate and comment!

Quoting Christopher Baldacci WOW Paul! This has a lot packed into it for a 16x16. I love the cobblestone SNOT idea. May I use that? (Credit to you of course). And the people are well done and the clothesline is innovative and representative. I am stumped on the time period as well. Oh, well, it is a great vig! 5/5
I'm glad you like it! And yes, you may absolutely use the cobblestone technique!

Quoting Justin L. Awesome! The cobblestone is cool. I got this drawing from this one artist that was titled "Port of Jaffa". Think you could add that to this M.O.C.?
Well... there's this little thing called "copyright"...

Amazing overall scene, I really like the use of the Brickforge horn as a shofar. Nice architecture too, it has that really cramped Middle Eastern feeling. Your dioramas are awesome, dude!

Here´s a lot to explore on 16 x 16. For some reason I really like the idea for the clothes-pegs.
