Here is my Work in Progress for NieR:Automata - Little Lake Diorama (LLD). :D (GK Contest 2018)
I wanted to make some machines (one of them with a sword too). I calculated and drew the plan before I started the project. (Scans on the first picture) I drew Beastlord's plan in the size of the diorama so I could checked the size before I started to make it. I calculated the size of the machines and the scale of the parts from a game database and from some game photos. I made 2B's POD 042 also (You can find him by the bigger tree on the diorama). Also 2 machine heads were added into the lake. I sawed off them a little bit.
I used toilet paper rolls and wooden ball for the main body of the machines. The balls are half drilled for the red lights and I drilled their eyes too. I used wire and polifoam ("Polyethylene Foam"?) to build machines' legs and arms. I needed a little paper and Tamiya Epoxy Putty (Quick Type) to make their screws and fingers... Some details has been added in this way. :D After I built the main body of the machines I used Tamiya Putty (White) to fill the polifoam's holes and I sanded them. I bought Pentart's Rust Effect Set. This is my first time wit it. I had to practice many times. For Beastlord I used a piece of wire and a some piece of wood and foil sheet (I used foil and a piece of wood for the little machine's sword too). I used air-drying clay to sculpt the lion's head. (Next time I'll use Epoxy putty I think because it wasn't easy to work with it.) In the end I used Tamiya Putty (White) and I sanded it. (I had to repeat it twice) I made the chains on my own because I didn't find one in this size on the local hobby and model store. I calculated the size after I made the sword and I bended the pieces one by one. Yes, I am a masochist.XDDDD I cut and painted with Transparent Yellow the energy circular around the Beastlord (big sword). I used a piece of wire to display it.
I made the trees with wire. ....
