I have completed quite a bit of work on my Arena Rex fighting arena.
It's a double layer of foam core supported by a custom wooden frame. The fighting surface is textured with sand and dry brushed. It's edged with gravel, stuck in place one by one with hot glue.
I need to get some more gravel, and finish the final ring of small stones.
Then it's on to movable hazards!
It's been a long time since I've done this kind of modeling, it's been fun.
