This time around its just a quick not on a happy side effect of all the pictures I've been taking.
We've all had that moment where we thought we had finished the miniature - but then, out of nowhere, we notice some crucial flaw we had completely missed.
A few days ago while I was posting some of the shots for the main body, I noticed three things that I might have otherwise missed. Who knows for how long. For example, there was a lens on my Baal that I didn't notice I had missed until like 4 months after the fact.
Here's what I caught on Tyberos:
- Totally forgot to highlight one of the plates on his chest. I think the angle I was using to paint most of the model kept this out of site until I tried to get some details on the lightning bolts.
- A highligh on the leg was the next culprit - I had missed a key blend.
- When I was gluing the figure to the base, I must have smudged the red paint on the skull
I'm not sure macro photography is the most efficient way to go about things, but...
I guess the lesson here is: always go over you work one way or another.
