I started this in a WIP and have finally finished my first background for taking pictures. This one is made with fairly lightweight watercolor paper. I taped it down tight, primed with gesso, and built up from light to dark layers (all cheap craft paints). The concept was for the whole thing to appear nebulous, as a dark cloud with obscured lighter flashes. I think it turned out pretty close to my vision. The half-painted creatures are just my first test shot with the background. My phone camera did occasionally try to focus on the background, so on the next attempt (some kind of brighter theme) I will try to soften the edges (paint started to dapple on the blacks and grays). What do you think?

For those curious, the bug is primed in Reaper brush on primer, black, and it's carapace has two coats of Golden's Interference (purple-green) paint. Boxy is clean Bones, primed with Brown Liner with Old West Rose fleshy bits. They'll get their own WIP soon.
Not technically a photography question but it is sort of related, in a round about way.
Since photobucket went all stupid where is everyone hosting photos to share on the site now?
I know very little about that sort of thing so I have no idea what to look for.
This has killed all my posts and pretty much stopped me from being active here and it is driving me nuts.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

3200 British volunteers took off their clothes and were painted four shades of blue and photographed in the streets of Hull as part of an art project by American photographer Spencer Tunick.
Tunick specializes in large photographs of crowds of nude people. The blue color is symbolic of Hull's relationship to the river and the sea.
I was amazed at the cheerful volunteerism exhibited -- the models are unpaid -- and the sheer variety of people participating. It seems to me an eye-opening sample of what regular people look like naked (well, partly, since in this project each person is painted monochrome).
I was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures.
The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at:
The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi!
The Reaper Paint 'N' Take:
I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis.
I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted minis!
