"Desert City Gates"

Oh man, this is my favourite one yet, both miniature and groundwork. I love deserts. This diorama combines elements of several real desert regions: the scenery is reminiscent of the American Southwest, the figure's clothing is Middle Eastern, and his physical features are Aboriginal Australian. My reference for the arch is pretty obviously Utah's Delicate Arch, even though I didn't mimic the shape directly. It's sculpted out of epoxy putty, a plumbing supply, as is each individual brick in the wall.
