Here are his projects.

A Templar and his Squire

This is a beautiful diorama that is simply laid out and designed. And, Luis uses some really clever techniques for making it -including using paper and glue for the ground work then sprinkling on charcoal and bits of wood. It's brilliant. You can improvise materials to make very realistic dioramas. Check it out here: A Templar and his Squire
