Nice job, he looks great. I love the Wolf Pack shot too.

Thanks, Ridge. This last one (with Ahsoka) was really fun because I only own one TVC Shock Trooper. What you see is an amalgamation of two photos. I took the first shot of Ahsoka with the clone standing on the left side of the frame. I then moved the figure over to the right side of the frame and took a second shot. Subsequently, in Photoshop, I cut out the clone from the first shot (along with its shadow) and pasted it into the second. I then did a few touch-ups to the figure to make it sort of look like two different toys (slightly different paint marks). So, same figure, but with different lighting positions. I also did a lot of work to Ahsoka's visage. I boosted the exposure on her face, since it is the central focus of the photo. And much to my chagrin, my figure is a little bug-eyed. So, I moved the pupils inward toward the nose (while doing a little clean-up to each iris) in order to give her a more natural look. I also removed a few paint specs on her nose and forehead. And, finally, I pasted the background in to make it look like a Republic detention facility; and I then added a black border line (blurred) to draw a distinction between the real floor and the fake background. I'd say it was about five hours of editing work. There are two LED light sources: one directly above; and one in front, just right of center, with a homemade lightbox attached to diffuse the light (i.e., I took a paper towel and wrapped it over the light).

This is the shit I do when my kids are asleep. Rolling Eyes

Wow and here I was thinking it was just another cool pic. That was quite a project. It looks really great.

Thanks, Bob. Most of my photos receive some editing work. For example, in the Plo Koon picture above, I actually shot the figure with the lightsaber which came with it. That lightsaber had a blade, which I removed from the picture. That required that I edit back in the snow and shadow just right so that it didn't look off. I also had to resculpt the emitter section of the weapon. And, it wasn't snowing that day. I added the falling snow effect, along with the haze. To me, editing is the biggest part of the fun. The raw picture can be kinda dull.
