    Sure, I'll put up an unedited image tonight along with an edited version so you can see it.

    I appreciate the backing- I saw your name right after you did but didn't think to say anything. I'll be hitting up a lot of places hard in a day or two after Shane finishes the logo he's designing for me. I'm hoping that will help a little- also I need to get my skeleton website up.

      Okay, I made a couple of small changes and took some new pics. I'm thinking I should go ahead and hit her with some matte varnish because I added a very thin wash of Ogryn Flesh to her skin and I think it may be reflecting a bit too much in these shots.

      Here's the unedited montage



      Here's one where I just used auto-contrast in photoshop.



      Here's a look at the whole piece. I'm thinking about freehanding "Alice in Wonderland" on it, but I'm not sure. Maybe I should wait to try that until after the competition, since it takes place this Saturday.

        Definitely matt her and then it will flatten out the colours, so you'll be able to stop the colours underneath poking through, as well as the glare factor.

            Okay- I'll spray her down and take some more pics tonight.

            I have learned a lot from this session, so thanks for that.

            Thanks man- I appreciate that.

            Shane finished the logo for me, which looks amazing, so I'll be hitting up places pretty hard as soon as I get my site up.

              Okay- I sprayed on the matte varnish and it really improved the look of the mini. I also tweaked my light tent setup again for these pics. There's a shadow on the right side of her jaw in one of the pics that isn't really there IRL- no matter what I did I could not get rid of it. These are also untouched (except for making them a montage) pics straight from the camera.

                Here is my final picture for this project. I took some advice from another thread and added more greenery to make the base look less sparse.

                Thank you so much for doing this- I learned a lot from you, Scott. I appreciate all the hard work you put into this tutorial series. If I ever meet you in person I'll buy you a pint.

                  Nicely done mate, and good work at taking the scene a step further at the end too. Glad that you enjoyed.
