Hello readers. If you saw my Underwater diver previously, you know how hard it was to accomplish and where it failed. But maybe, remembering every step can be usefull to somebody, so In this series of posts I'll write a simple step by step on my process. This first one is focused on how I built the base.
Hola lectores. Si habéis visto mi buzo submarino antes sabréis lo difícil que ha sido de completar y donde fallé. Aún así, recordar cada paso puede ser útil para algunos, así que en esta serie de post voy a escribir un sencillo paso a paso de las etapas que he seguido yo. Este primero esta enfocado en cómo construí la peana.
With a 3D printer help I casted the door and placed it over a plasticard plane with the size of my background, and made a hole that fits the window.
I painted the backround and the door on a blueish grey, with some scratches and some light effect on the led's place to increase the effect it's going to have.
Using some milliput stuff I covered the wires and built a natural earth floor with a couple of rocks. Also I added a lamp to fit the green led so It act natural.
Painting the floor on gredish colors that fit the backround and adding some aquarium plants repainted gives the base a totally differenty and alive feeling!
