I like the paint jobs on the monsters, but the photo seems a little dark.

The Cthulhu figures are from a variety of manufacturers - the Gug and Cthulhu himself are from Reaper, I think, and most of the others are RAFM.  I don't recognise the lady or the shoggoth.

Great work on the Mythos figures, by the way - and I LOVE the ruined car in the background, too!

Yep. For completeness's sake:
  • Reaper gug
  • RAFM dark young
  • Reaper eldritch demon (I'd call it star spawn. Cthulhu would be a tad larger than that.)
  • RAFM shoggoth
  • RAFM hound of tindalos x2
  • RAFM ghast
  • RAFM chthonian
The old lady is Citadel gothic horror peasant from 1985, included for scale and absurdity. The wrecked Model T is from Rusty Rail. Speaking of T:s, I think mythos authors and H. Ford went to the same school of style. The photo is not particularly dark. It's just that maybe half of mythos monsters are described "dark", "black", "pitch black" or sometimes generously just "greyish-black". Then I used a dark green backdrop for semi-arbitrary reasons. (The original, lighter one had a grainy texture which managed to mess up the photos. I noticed this only in the middle of processing, got frustrated and picked the first usable piece of cloth I found. Grr...)

Yes a lighter back drop would have brought out the black paint jobs better. From what I can see they are very good. You did a great job with black on black.
