EDIT:OMG WOW, thank you to everyone that hit "this rocks!" button. This is my first project posted ever, and now it's been featured. Thank you!  Kiss


SO, this is my final for my 3D design class I took in my spring semester for a 3D design class. The assignment was make an "awesome diorama" of anything. As long as it was awesome. Exact words. I thought I was going to kill my teacher after a week of trying to think of something awesome.

I was sitting in my grandpa's kitchen one night, playing with some cardboard. And I looked around his kitchen and decided what I was going to do. This was the result, I hope you all enjoy it.  Cheesy


Introducing the tenant - made from wire, foil, polymer clay and hand painted


The completed kitchen - the beads/charms were not made by me, but everything else was. Base is foam core, paper mache, and layers of paint. The refrigerators, cabinets and counters were made with the same materials.


Top of cabinets - with real dust! (It's been sitting in my bedroom since the last critique Tongue)


Another cabinet view - I was so proud of them


Hidden charm in cabinets


Curtain details


Carpet details - added the beads, because it looked too plain and flat on the floor


Fridge 1


Fridge 2 - another hidden charm


Grandpa's kitchen for comparison.  Cheesy


Obligatory kitty shot, she gives some size perspective as well as looking cute!



Comments much appreciated!

I got an A in the course, so I believe the grade was an A also. Our prof never really wrote a grade down for us. All I know is after two weeks and seeing a few mock ups of the cabinets/fridges he was worried about it turning out okay.  Cheesy

It looks like it could be a set for a hidden object computer game.  Great perspective and scale.  And I love the cat shot.

BTW, you are very good with your camera.

Seraphina: Thanks for the comment,  now you make me want to try out a small stop motion thing with it. Maybe not today though. Or ever, I'm lazylazy.  Lips sealed

pinkokeeo: There's actually another hidden object at the bottom of the sink area. My camera couldn't grab a snazzy picture of it though. Pepper, my cat, really wanted to play with the little guy.

Thank you for noticing my pictures! I tried to make them look good for all of my fellow craftsters.  Cheesy

And my zoom couldn't see it either.  Yes, I am actually nerdy enough that I tried to see whatever was there. Cheesy

Still, it all looks great.

mafiosagrrl: I'm glad you like it, dust and all. I actually had to wipe it down a bit, before I took pictures, there was thick layer of dust. > >;

pinokeeo: Wow, I just realized I spelled your username horrible wrong the first time. Sorry about that. Anyway, the charms at the VERY bottom, even with a zoom, you wouldn't be able to see it in those pictures.

BUT, here's a top view and you can see it easily now. Smiley
