More work on the alley

Greetings everyone,
 I've been working on some of the little details. Researching on Google, I noticed a drain pipe coming out of a brick wall, fire cans, sewers, lights all the things that would make this look as real as possible.  Theres no planning when i do things like this, whatever pops in my head thats what I do.
Sometimes its a good idea, other times not so good. Heres some shots.

  11. Astonishing! Truly the work of a master craftsman. Do you use commercial textures or design your own?

    1. Thanks Captain. What I meant was did you design the brick pattern or is it from one of the paper model companies.

  13. I didnt design it...I tried to use a pattern that looked multi- dimensional, In some areas I built up the brick with a second layer along with the spackling gave it even more depth.

    1. Thanks Captain. Sorry, I'm not making myself clear. I wanted to know where you got the paper textures from. I do a lot of card modelling and I am always looking for new sources of textures. Apologies for all the questions.

  14. Go to your computer and plug in images of ancient brick walls and thousands of images will come up
