Light Box Background
« on: March 29, 2021, 03:34:46 AM »
In my journey to take better photographs of figures, I realized I was not happy with plain white backgrounds.  Figures just look better on a stage.  So I went about creating my own painted backdrop to put in the light box.  I went with a verdant grasslands.  I had tons of fun doing it, and will be painting more soon for sure.

There is a full step-by-step on my blog (https://www.fantasticlegions.com/post/light-box-backdrops).  But here are a few photos:







I think I will do one more grasslands and a desert backdrop for now.  I have been toying with some sort of night or dusk backdrop for the undead.
For a good time, visit...

That looks fantastic!  :-*    While it would be entertaining to drink Absinthe and paint, I am sure I would not wind up with that result.  lol
