Unless you're aiming for a "shadowbox" type effect when photographing, I would strongly urge you to alter your paint colors a little.

 

Try painting the walls white or off-white, and put a coat of light gray on the floor, along with any other colors to demarcte stripes, travel lanes or anything else you might want to put on.

 

I'd also consider scribing the side-walls to simulate concrete block.

 

You have a good start to a concept, let's move it to be better.

I agree with Charlie. A real garage doesn't have dark gray walls and floor.

The floor is gray Richard. I guess I need you to clarify what you mean. Your two garage dioramas have been big inspirations on this so I will gladly accept any tips, but I don't understand what you're saying I should do.

I think he means a darker concrete like color. Some where between where you started and what it is now. Its lookin good. Way better than what could do.

You could also try to speckle the floor. Make it look like the Ucoat it floor coating.

yes darker grey .. the floor needs to be way darker then the walls .. you could even try a wash > take dark grey and put some on the floor and with a cloth wipe it all over (spread it out) continue untill you get a cool effect and the floor is dark grey but a you also have little bit of light(er)area's ..

Yeah, that concrete should be darker.

We call my second cousin Sgt. Schultz. He's a good fit for the name, I'm 9th in my class so there;s just a little contrast.

I'll try to wash it with the black  I initially used and see what it does at some point. My bench is a bit crowded right now  and this is stuffed up in my display cabinet.
