Thanks for the compliments and rep everybody.
More good stuff! The painting looks well done and the concept is sound. The lamp, however, seems to be out of place. I can't tell if this is on a sidewalk, road , or field?? Don't get me wrong..., I like the addition of this item, but I think that it needs to be placed a little more strategically. Perhaps elevating it up onto a curb, or maybe adding sidewalk lines..., something. (But that is just MHO
Keep it up. I am really enjoying your work.
On looking at the base again, I agree with the points you have made. Although, in the uk, our streetlights are not next to the roads, they are usually set further in to the pavement, usually quite close to walls etc. Also, the pavements where I live are all made from concrete/asphalt, so there are no cracks in there. But ignoring these two factors, I can agree that the base would have looked a lot better if I had made a few more distinctive 'pavement' like features.
I'm going to chalk this up to experience and if I make a base like this again, I'll try to make it a little more detailed, as it does just look like a lamppost in the middle of nowhere. hmmmm, maybe when I do his squad buddies, I could add more rubble, so that the unit as a whole looks like they are in a wartorn street.
lol, it looks as out of place as that lamppost in 'The lion, the witch and the wardrobe'.
