HOW I DO........ a quick scenery!

Maybe it could be useful to show "how I do" my quick sceneries 
before I take  the pictures ....

I don't do dios at each time I paint a figure or a range one, I just choose the better pictures and then crop them with "Microsoft Picture Manager" (but I can use Photobucket too...), 
it gives a  lot of possibilities: large plans, closed pictures, etc.....
Then I choose the background (I have a lot ready, all found on the web) and put it on the "photos-box" search all the material that I need in my reserve (like rocks, fine sands, natural plants/ lichens / moss .... or ready-made artificial one that I've bought.
I place each piece on the ground and then add the figures.
If necessary, I hide the bases with the sand like in this example.

....an other example:
( with the same picture and using the Photobucket tools):

  3. I've been wondering how you do this and thank you for showing us how it's done. Your figures always look good with your backgrounds.

  4. So there! It's really nice to share these ideas, the result is always great ... I will try to apply it one day, the problem is to have exactly the same colours! Thank you!

    1. For the colours.... well sometimes I'm lucky!
      (seriously: as you can see I have different colours of sand and little rocks!)
