Hey, that looks great! Nice cartoony/realistic feel to it. My guess is the film must involve a dog? I see Brickwell Pound across the street, and featured in close-up is a nice shiny fire hydrant. Looking forward to seeing more.

I like the feel of it - the look of the individual bricks is quite realistic and nicely textured, but they are oversized which gives a cartoony proportion to things. The kerbs are big too, but nicely worn, it's not one of those bland too-perfect sets. Lots of character, looking forward to the rest. Funny how that hydrant tells you there's a dog involved...

I really like the set. Not only is it interesting and well constructed, but it captures something many sets don't. There is a 'feel' to certain objects and how they are made. Often times objects are just made or thrown together and put into a set. And this works to represent rooms, or streets and such, but they are missing something very important - something this set has. The 'feel' of the different objects, the perspective, the sky - everything - ties together perfectly to set an unique tone and feel. Hats off to you (or your wife perhaps ;-)). -Andrew Liebau-

ya,it looks awsome i like it how the attention to detail fits in with the cartoony feel...and also,did u make or buy that beetle on the right?;)

The Beetle on the right was kitbashed for the Bodyskeleton then clayed ontop for the look . otherwise....the bricks were individually cut...and pasted. the hydrant and poles and grass....and pipes and so on....were sculpy... the garbage dumpster was cardboar.....with clay atop it... fence was just wire mesh......sand and curved paper for train tracks...\ clouds cotton balls......mailbox sculpy justin

nicely done, how did you make the little bushes? Im requiring to make some for my own set.......

Also the sky backdrop, how did you do that? I was thinking about buying a huge canvas and painting that up for the back of mine....

the sky was a 4 by 8 piece of drywall that I painted.... the bushes were colored super sculpy. jriggity
