Pandora, Mother of Sorrows
As I mentioned yesterday, I have finished work on Pandora now and – a couple of quick Dullcote sprays later – here she is:
I’m really happy with the paintjob on her, less so with the photography!
The Object Source Lighting (“OSL” in painter speak) has happily come out how I wanted it to, and the freehand on the coat worked first time too. It was also my first attempt at marbling on the base and I’m chuffed with that also.
I do need to play around with my photography setup.
I need a couple of new backdrops printed out I think. Our inkjet printer is a bit temperamental so I may shell out for professional print shop to do them. Or I could get one of the guys in the creative team at work to run some off for me on their fancy machines.
The camera itself seems to be perpetually dirty, and it looks like I have a dead pixel (occasionally spotted as a bright red dot in the images).
So that means that the Neverborn crew are mostly done, for the Salute competition at least. This morning I have been spraying the display plinth so will do a full group shot soon. I do need to repaint a matching dark purple for all their base rings though, to tie them together a bit better.
