After much effort (and equal amounts of procrastinating) I have finished my entry into the Halloween Contest;
Trying to get a good photo of her really highlighted how much I need to build a light-box to photograph things now that I have a good camera.

Miniature is 02678: Swamp Hag on a Reaper Pathfinder mini base.

Phenomenal finished product sir! I followed your WIP all the way and have to say that the time and care you put into her really shows through.

Very nice! What camera did you get?

--- 2013 stats:  10 painted. 8 purchased. Two kickstarters.  I can paint for the rest of my life and never catch up

Fuji FinePix SL280 - I have a lot of learning to do about it, but at less than the cost of a lens for an SLR it was hard to go past.

You should just buy some white tissue paper and cut panels in a box like I did. It's not the greatest light box in the world, but it works and it was free (I had the tissue paper in our big box-o-gift wrapping supplies). Also, tripod!

She is a BEAUTY...so to speak. The color choices, brushwork, & basing are EXCELLENT. I love your flesh tones. VERY WELL DONE!
The best of luck in The Contest!

Looks much better! Might try pulling the top light up slightly, and making sure the lights are in front of the mini a bit to reduce shadows. Just minor tweaks at this point, as it's looking good. I still tweak my setup every time I take pics :)

Beautiful work, I like the expression of her face and the color you choose for the cloths.
