    Nice! You've to s of great customized figures! On this one I had preferred when you had paint the body in another red before doing the drybrush, cause the original "red" has a heavy pink touch for me, but it's of course not your fault!

    Ahm, I have painted his body in another red without this pinky touch.
    its a deeper blood red with light metallic effects.
    It´s the mean flash light which spoils the colours. :(

    THNX.
    I also try to avoid flash for photos, but Sentinel was finished when it was very dark outside, so I had to use a flash light. :(

    My cheapo solution to that is just getting a few desk lamps, put white light bulbs in them, tape toilet paper over the fronts to avoid glares, and set the figure up on a single color background, like white, black, or gray.
    Then you don't need a flash and the pics come out pretty good.

    But used UNUSED toilet paper please... If you don't use unused paper weird color effects would happen ^^

    Why would you waste unused toilet paper?? All my pics have lighting through USED TP. Gives it this nice browish-yellow hue to the pics. Even the tape I used to keep the TP on the lamps was first used to remove my nipple hair.
    Best to get the most out of anything you buy, ya'know.

    Yes, but the cords/cables would drop off.
    For me -personal- is more important that the figure looks as close as movie like instead of the possibility of transforming.

    VERY usefull hint!
    So be aware of wonderfull colours of nature which may appear on my photos in the future...
    (What a pitty my kids dont need nappies anymore, think that would have been even better that used t-paper.)
