Heh Dal, I like the fact that we still kick with the old-toy-shop-dio-flavour.

Whilst there is lots to be said for ultrarealistic backdrops, there's something quintessential about a 70s shopwindow flavour... always like your work dude!Twisted Evil

Thanks slack! I agree, making the backgrounds too realistic can take the fun out I think? and in some cases distract from the figure or figures we are trying to show Very Happy . Its funny how we pick up bits from each other too, It was you I believe that I first saw paintings used as backdrops to such amazing effect, and who could forget the beach shots? I too always look forward too seeing what you come up with too! bounce bounce bounce many thanks for the great comments too, really pleased you enjoy the pics of the antics at BAM HQ cheers cheers cheers

That is an interesting observation that I shall have to think about. While I am always berating myself for my failure to construct "realistic" backdrops and settings, each time I start a new project, I end up taking a "stylized" or "cartoonish" (or "little kid") approach. I usually attribute the end result to a lack of skill and talent, but perhaps there's a more deep-seated psychological reason that my backdrops look that way which you and SlackElastic have identified: that's the look that I subconsciously remember from my childhood, from holiday department store displays, mail order catalogs, and television commercials. And... it's the look that I like! As much as I appreciate the talent and skill that goes in to hyper-realistic miniature dioramas, your carved foam stone blocks and plastic aquarium plants with dinosaurs scampering among them is much more fun!

I think that sums it up perfectly Dave! I too love realistic backdrops, but MiskatonicNiack layouts keeping everything toylike, was the blueprint I think using the same technique?

Nice! The outfit is from the Tuskegee Airman Fighter pilot, I believe. My winter talking commander wears the trousers.
