I acquired a new phone Wednesday, which has a better camera than I've been using for mini photos.  And, experimenting with the new camera, I have also acquired shame over my previous pics.

 

For a comparison, here's the old camera:

1555410240_2019101077285OffsetHalf.thumb.jpg.2d276da32c274f1c35dca22593491ea6.jpg2031540249_2019101077285RearHalf.thumb.jpg.943a1e1b4cc1a12be41ee067d813661e.jpg

 

And these are pictures from the new phone:

1189328612_2019101877285OffsetHalf.thumb.jpg.cc8a160d914b1ff801fd78d55f2276e9.jpg1614360768_2019101877285RearHalf.jpg.413cfb911050320d6c076743d92852a4.jpg

 

The new pictures are taken using the telephoto lens on an iPhone 11 Pro using the ProCamera app, using a recently acquired gray card to set the white balance.  (The only reason I'm using the telephoto lens is because my tripod is about 10 inches from the mini and it gets really crowded if I get any closer.  My old camera has optical zoom, so it was fine with the distance.)

There are perfectly sound underlying reasons for most all purchases, no matter how outwardly frivolous they may appear. I did plan on making a Living Impaired Pirate scene (I have a bunch of the mostly dead Buccaneers in backlog). Both Cap'n John & I fell in love with Madame Delia who will, in my case, provide stiff competition for Fast Flo. AND the Devil made me do it.

SO here is what arrived to day:

03964 Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee

03965 Ghost Pirate Cook

03966 Ghost Pirate Quarter Master

03967 Ghost Pirate Captain

03968 Ghost Pirate Bosun

03978 Madame Delia X 2

44054 Damaris, Duskwarden

44089 Jade Fire Shaman (a soon to be Goblin Witch/Heart Throb)

01031 Ghoulie Bag

44010 Dark Dwarf Pounder (reinforcements for S. White's Gang)

The next couple imminent arrivals are in the order of necessary crafting supplies . The Devil is off the hook on them.

I am accumulating quite a collection of pretty plastic and metal things here!  Got my Scale75 order, including a 72mm scale one of a very aloof looking succubus.  I opened it up to take a look - the sculpt is so clean!  It makes most of the metal ones look like pretty rough by comparison.  I was almost afraid to touch it, not to mention painting it.  I want to be able to paint that much skin at something approaching the level of the box art ...

 

Demogorgon first - zenithal priming him tomorrow.  Wish me luck!

 

Also got my Murkillor and another Sophie - the 54mm snowboard one.  Got the ghoulie bag and pounder of course.  I also asked for the purple sample paint, and got that and a pale pink/purpley one that looks like it could find a place on that Scale75 succubus!

 

Got some Airheads and tootsie rolls this time.  I did say before that I love Reaper, right?  Just making sure.

Friend of mine sent me a little gift. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with it, but it's very intriguing.

Yeah, it's a fun colour...   

My best idea is on the inside of capes of Death figures, wraiths and so on.

I hope it works better than Black 2.0

 

Assuming it's a good one, then yeah, it's better than 2.0.  

(A lot of bottles contains a sludge more like dried tar and charcoal powder that no amount of thinning and shaking seems to revive. Mine's OK, mostly. )

We may have been acquired by a cat. We also might be a little too soft-hearted for our own collective good over here. We'll see. She needs a visit with the vet, and then we'll find out if she has a home, or if some *redacted* CENSORED abandoned a perfectly good cat.

Totally forgot I got this in the mail from Hasslefree a...few weeks ago. She's lovely and the detail is incredible.

Kev has so much talent! Funny thing too is the first time we met, it was at the HGI lobby for RCon & we were both pretty hammered. ::P:

Rex's description is pretty accurate.. We decided to call her Jasper; and she's been to the vet to be scanned for a chip (present?! Not that we could find anybody attached to it), and looked over for the usual parasite load. I'm going to give her a flea-med pill in a bit...

 

but she looks like this:

Jasper.thumb.jpg.36a3fd24bf739bf50a7ad277ad733e3a.jpg

... looks like she's our cat. She's going to stay in the bathroom for a couple of weeks, to get over the sniffles and let the worming pill run its course.

A paid vet bill is 90% of the law when the question is: who-owns-at-cat.
