So I just wanted to post a picture to show the work that I've done on the miniature of Splash Mountain that I started this summer and get some opinions about my work so far.
I got most of the work done that you can see this summer. I had to go back to school, though, so I had to stop working on it until the past couple of days. The top area (namely the tree) were done then. With regards to the whole miniature, especially the top, I do realize that there is still a ton of detail work to add to get it looking even similar to actual mountain, but I have to start somewhere in getting to that point which is where I'm at now.
I know it's not perfect (some of the proportions are definitely not right), but it's only about the third time I've done any kind of model and I've only had pictures and bing maps to really go off of, so I'm pretty happy with the way it's turned out so far. I have to go back to school again, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to finish it over Christmas break.
I was also initially planning on making it fully functional, but I decided that it would have just taken far too much alteration of what I had done in order to get that done (not to mention more expensive). So now I've put all of my effort into just making the front look as good as possible.
Let me know what you all think, though!
