This was my first ambitions diorama project for Golden Demon 2011.

The project took about 300 hours of work, including sculpting almost everything from scratch. All the time I kept a daily project log on Warseer. It was mostly to keep me motivated, but the feedback from my followers ended up having a great impact on the final piece.

The finished diorama earned me my first demon: Silver.

    Love it. Not quite as cool as a silver demon, but here’s a gold from me :) ^^^^

    One of my favorite dio’s back then! I very much liked, and still do, the relaxed non combat atmosphere. ( I remember the OSL a little more vibrant, may be its just the picture) I love it :)

      Thanks! Amazing to know that this made enough impact for people to remember it. :)

      Yes this time I used a white background when taking the pictures, which apparently has a great impact on the ambient light on the dark parts and the overall contrast. I tried adding a dark background in photoshop, but it didn’t look good. The pictures on CMON are on a black background though. :D

      Edit: you actuallt inspired me to add the dark background images as well. :)

    Hi Filip! This is great, great work! I remember seeing the process online too. I think you should add a picture of the unpainted model in the green stage for people to realise this has actually some amazing sculptwork. My only nitpick is the snow, I think there are other products which give a more convincing result. Still, overall a magnificent piece and a solid gold from me! Feel free to check my gallery too :)

    awesome piece that has stood the test of time so far! Can’t believe it’s 6 years old!
