Heyo! Been too long since I finished something, I know, but thought I'd do a quick model to start getting back up to speed before the imminent ReaperCon (since those How Not To Sucks don't teach themselves (yet)), and also as a test piece for some army painting I'll be doing all this week. I thought doing shiny teal NMM, burnished gold NMM, and some black highlighted up with the stone greys would be a fun way to get the hand working again, and Monique didn't fight me too much. Since she was a quick paint job I didn't do any glazes or washes; what you see is non-optimized layerin' at its non-finest . She was also a test for my new lighting setup (four daylight CFL's diffused with tissue paper) and for picture taking; I used both a Sony DSC-H55 and my Samsung Galaxy S phone in a macro-photography shootout, and the Samsung actually ended up taking much, much better pictures once I dialed it in (the Sony had some work too). All I did on the pics was crop and drop the black level a couple of points to get the pics almost perfectly color matched to the mini in hand. As always, jeers, tomatoes, questions, and criticisms welcome.
