The base is a porous concrete mix, cast from a 3d printed mold. This way I am able to rotate it very precisely using a custom macro photography rig. you can se more about the process in here exoplanet mini documentary (beware loud audio at the start!)
I don't know what I'm looking at but it looks cool! How was this made?
That's INCREDIBLE! I thought this was really realistic cgi haha
True miniworld! I was looking at this trying to figure out perspective. Was almost sure those were huge boulders!
Nice reference! "We don't even care whether or not we care..."
Oddly enough, I took one look at this and immediately thought of it as the setting for the scene in Final Fantasy VI, on the Floating Continent, when Kefka moves the statues and initiates the apocalypse. And I can't see it as anything else.
Fantastic! Now all you need are millions of tiny people all wearing Canada Goose jackets and it will be a true replica.
Well, basically this was part of my art coursework. The topic was 'manmade', so I was exploring recycling and how it can be ued to make art.
You're a very talented individual, OP!
How do you even start making that? What gave you the idea?
I was thinking more like factory stacks and the yellow stuff looks like smog.
Yeah if you squint a little
Instructions unclear, finger stuck in dickhole
And tilt your head sideways.
Well, that truly is a tiny ecosystem
Ok, I need more info on this.
There are a bunch of trees on a bot
That’s the coolest thing I’ve seen all day.
Whoa this one in particular totally fucked me up
Came from there (well also crossposted to), was told you might like it here

For future terrarium builders, I learned the hard way that moss doesn't live as well in an open container as closed. The moss ended up dying but is still pretty even dried, so I added an airplant and can still call it a terrarium :p
Also for future terrarium builders: succulents live in deserts, not rainforests.
OP didn't do this - but all these little glass bowls are sold with images of succulents in them, it's like selling fishbowls with pictures of puppies in them. Those do not go there!
Yess!!! This drives me crazy. Pinterest/Instagram are littered with succulents in glass bowls and I'm just thinking, "how many days til those are all dead?"
I’mmmm snaaaiiilliiiinnnng awaaaayyyyy
Set snail for adventure!
Aha, I have many questions I hoped to be answered. Do you know if it's Photoshopped?
That's actually really awesome! Get a closeup
Is there a tiny Pauly Shore in it?
Imagine all the creatures living in there that have never seen life outside the dome.
Rest assured, he caused much trouble in that bubble.
