Entry 11: Back to Rural Again!
So as promised here are some more rural scenes. I managed to find a diagonal version of Diggis river set and combined with the orthogonal set makes for some great-looking small rivers!
The idea is a stream cutting through the fields, with some areas being fenced off to create wildlife habitats.
Combined with orthogonal corners and diagonal corners, creating a river becomes an exercise in grid-busting.
The path splits in two... One branches off towards a small tourist spot.
Another thing I'm working on is wild areas with a medium saturation of MMPs. It's not 100% saturation and it ain't a light saturation either... Medium!
I always enjoy painting in MMP gravel paths.
At first I was just planning on creating MMP fields, but throwing in a river adds a bit of much needed variety.

One of my favourite scenes to create is the rail siding in the middle of the countryside.
I also throw in some SPAM fence sets in as well- brown, white and barbed wire.
And a bit above the bridge is the field which hugs around the river's edge...
Using Heblem's tropical grass I get this dark-green field which looks decent. Another <small> addition is a dirt-lined perimeter around some fields.
The petrol station faces out into the sea of dark green.
As mentioned earlier the tourist spot is this small gazebo by the river.
Now my plans for this river is that it will run across the northeast corner of the city tile. LARGE VERSION: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/a/img924/772/YZVYC7.jpg
And here is the picture of the playground. I posted this several days ago but here is the all-dolled-up version!
Now then, the next entry will be something similar- more rural scenes.
Lastly- WHY doesn't this site properly show mosaics?
