...I'm giving up modelling, .

This post is inspired by another post I saw yesterday, it was by 'Boggie', and entitled 'Modelling and Fine Art'.

The link below seems to show images in a similar vein to the above post, but I keep looking to see if I can determine whether they're real or some kind of 'photoshop' exercise, .

Once upon a time I would have taken them at face value...the camera never lies...but nowadays, the camera can, and does, .

If they are real, then I apologise to their creator for my doubts, and commend their skills, .

Enjoy...

Apparently they're miniatures and the artist is Chris Toledo.

Impressive work. A lot of the stuff used here is from Doll House miniature kits and/or products. I built a few dolls' houses for various young and old ladies and am familiar.
Miniatures of all kinds have fascinated me for as long as I can remember.

Love Chris's work, but a Sherman would look funny in the master bedroom...the wife would never stand for that!

There is a lot of really great artwork out there. Thank you for finding and sharing this. I look at modeling like this and can really appreciate it for what it is.

Here is another artist who has gone all out with something different. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see some of their other work.
