77366: Shadow Hound

Recommended Posts

So in my last Reaper order I ordered some big shiny stuff for other people, but for myself, I ordered a few translucent Bones, as I've had my eye on them for a long elf time. As I have the translucent dragon from Bones 3 eventually making its way to me, I decided to get some practice in too.

 

So there was a thread around at one point about using Tamiya Clears on the translucent Bones minis, so I launched into painting mine with a similar approach =]

 

I also got fed up with my SLR and its hatred of shooting indoors, so woke up its inbuilt flash and cobbled together the world's most slapdash flash diffuser, and was ultimately kinda pleased with the results. Annoyingly, a lot of photos are underexposed because they look fine on my camera, but the screen on that is weirdly bright and everything tends to be dark as all hell when moved onto my laptop. 

 

It is possible my laptop screen is funky, so I do apologise if the following image is now hugely overbright *facepalm*

He's painted with Red and Shadow Tamiya clears, and then drybrushed very lightly with Citadel's Genestealer Purple, Khorne Red, and Evil Sunz Scarlet. His eyes are Evil Sunz =]

 

I'm actually really quite proud of how he's come out.

He(?) looks pretty cool!

 

Are you running your pics through a photo editor? They can really help with a lot of things that are hard to see on the small camera screens.

 

GIMP is a free one out there for download that Ub3r really likes...

 

(I have Photoshop elements 14 that I got last Xmas myself, and find that it helps my mediocre photography a lot!)

Good job!

 

He looks like he bathed in blood!!

 

Thanks ^_^ I figured as a beast of shadow, he was probably a pretty aggressive soul, so red seemed appropriate.

Normally I take photos on my phone, dump them straight onto FB, then onto here, but this one's actually been through Photoshop CS3, as I always have to crop a lot more and stuff with my SLR, because it won't focus as close as my phone will. 

 

My issue isn't so much with editing or getting stuff to look right, it's just that my camera does seem to shoot wierdly and it can be difficult to tell what's under or overexposed until I get it off onto my laptop, by which time I'm never all that inclined to return to photographing the same mini ^^;

I'd honestly mind less if I didn't photograph most minis while laying on my stomach xD it's kind of uncomfortable. If I had a decent table setup to shoot on, I'd probably take a lot more photos because it would be easier to steady my camera, etc. No tripod here >.<
