This is a small diorama I made of a forest scene. It includes a stream a bridge and a traviler. This is the first LDD diorama I have done and I am Really happy with it. The whole thing is really detailed and looks good. Sadly I do not think I'll ever buy it since its about $75 and thats a lot of money fore some thing so pointless.
Looks great, lots of detail and the forest setting make this piece almost seem as if something is about to happen to this traveler.
If you wanted to reduce the cost of this piece you could start with reducing the amount of bricks that make up the banks on either side of the river. you could probably even lower it a notch. And redoing the bridge with a shorter rail would help too. And as much as I'd hate to see it even cutting back on some of the detail, particularity the rolling forest floor would help.
But then again who the heck cares, it looks spectacular as is. I've actually been thinking about a vignette. along these lines, if you don't mind me stealing some of that inspiration of yours.
