Thanks 'boss.
No more splatter on this piece (future adjoining pieces/expansions will likely get more), as the main direction of the ejected material is away from the wall: The trench has been pushed down and out and dragged along (shown by the gravel being on top at the edge) and the final crater is where the mud has been thrown out when the front of the UFO came down (shown by the mud being on top at the edge).

Last night I painted the toilets, and then today I have added the posters/signs.

I've tried to keep them work/toilet related.
There is a "Danger forklifts" sign that the workers have added (underneath) an advert for a new forklift replacement (so we can assume that the one they had was a bit old).

There's a "Keep Clean" poster that someone has partially obscured by a "Tequila! Have you hugged your toilet today" poster (keeping with the toilet theme).

Then a couple of toilet adverts. One being damaged by pieces of flying concrete from the crash, and one damaged by the roots of the plant (to show that the area has been deserted for a while).

AND, to add some rivets to the piece, some LoER signs on the boxes. This also helps to show that one of the boxes has been tipped over.

These will all get more weathering when I come to that at the end, so yes, they do look a bit clean at the moment.

Thanks Graven.

Graffiti has been started.
The first was inspired by some graffiti I saw on the wall of an underpass in Poland (see insert, that wall is about 7ft tall). It amused me in it's sheer oddness and innuendo-ness.


Also, I've started the next piece and this is just a teaser. I wonder if any of you can tell what it's going to be?

Thank you all. Glad you like it and feel that it has been done justice.

XDluca: I am honoured to be the one to receive your first post. Thanks, realism is what I strive for, glad it works.

Ruglud: Ha. Maybe when I have finally got an airbrush... nobody would suspect the person running about with a compressor... Nearly bought a compressor today, but was out-bid. Will have to keep looking...

Graven / Big H: Thanks. It's not that great, it's just blobs of paint... well, that can describe any painting really... there's not much finesse to it. I didn't think it was going to work out as I painted it and then sat back and saw that it did work. The sum is far greater than the individual parts.

I've been doing more graffiti, but first I feel I should say:

The relative position, size, overlaps, colours, details, etc. of the graffiti that I am adding is no indication of favouritism for anyone that is (or isn't) included.

With that out the way, yes, the remaining graffiti is going to be based on some of you chaps from around here.

I want this wall to look like it has been on the receiving end of years of graffiti, with one person overlapping another and then the later people squeezing in tags in the gaps. So this will build up, piece by piece, until the lower half of the wall is filled (as graffiti artists can only reach so far, and rarely bring a step ladder).

So this is graffiti-in-progress:


Cam's tag is done following his own tutorial (for part of it at least) and is the first to be finished.
The particular shade of Harvest is only part done, and will get some more additions soon.
Vik's has only just been started and will look very different.

There are many more to come and, as I said, don't feel left out if you don't feature. I can't fit you all on this one piece, and there are many more things I will build in the future...

Ja. Dave's warehouse was the inspiration for this, as was Cam's graffiti exploits.

Ah, but I had a plan for Vik's tag (see below). But that comment has sealed your tag

Vik's and Red's tags are done, I've blocked in a few more, and this should serve as a scale reminder (as without any reference the wall can look a bit small).

I think it's a combination of a reasonably long name that is also very easy to abbreviate. Look at it this way, even abbreviated your name is as long as mine is in total.

Finished off a couple more:

Dave's was going to be done in red-brick, but once I'd added the lines for the bricks (so that I'd be able to paint the bricks in) I quite liked it in black/white and so kept it.
Monkeytroll's was another easily split to make more graffiti artists.

You can also see that I've been a bit diplomatic as to the graffiti that is hidden by the fallen piece of wall.
