Beautifully done down to the last fingernail with every fold delicately brought out. I've always enjoyed viewing your work at MH.

Was the whole fig done in oils, Allan?

Hi CK,

Thanks for the kind words.. I am using Acrylics for figure painting. If I have a bit more time this 2 days, I may complete it and bring over to MH on Saturday during the armor competition.

Hi Zaidi,

Yes indeed I made it (always find painting easier than webbing) ...with little guidance from some "website help"

I will bring a few figures over to MH this weekend

Workshop I am more than happy to conduct, but need get approval from the model shop manager though to provide the space.....

Allan,
one thing that i envy with your work (and others good painter as well) is how you really made the resin/plastic look like fabric!!

i still dont know how to do that

probably you may add this to your figure painting class.......

looking forward for the class...and i may invite fellow KakiModel to join the workshop........

Allan, pls update us about the details

Dear All,

I'veposted some photoes on this completed figure at the figure section. Most of you guys have seen it in real life last week.

Allan

Nice work as always. You da man.

Can you share with us the photography part ? What kind of lighting was used ? Outdoors or indoors ? Ordinary flourescent lighting or special bulbs used ? Any filters to tone down the glare and reflectors to redirect light ? Can you also tell us the type of camera used ? Digital or film ? Any required camera settings for certain conditions ? Thanks.

Regards
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

I am really amateur and also lazy fellow in photo shooting....

I used in old Canon "SLR" G3 digital camera. Set it to manual. Use Macro and white balance (flash off) need to select to the source of light you use. In my case, I used warm day flourecent light (the one surgent used). use auto focus and set the light exposure to about -1.2/3 or -1 should get you there. Use timer and tripod to stablise the shooting.

To get better effect you should have 3 lights (one top 2 each side from bottom) but I am too lazy so I only used the white A4 paper to bounce the light from side using the light from the top as source.

Hope this help. Therere are lots of article about miniature photo in Armorama and other sites check it out.

Allan
