Still on the dwarf gyrocopter. I’ve played with the lighting and framing of the shot a little. My earlier shots used direct sunlight which led to too much shadow. These photos are still lit using sunlight, but now diffused (by my shed door!) to avoid hard shadows.
While I’m happy with the backdrop it is too small for grand vistas. If I added more models the sides of the background would be visible, undermining the point somewhat. I think I knew this even as I was painting it, but it was the largest canvas I had on hand. Another project for the future, I guess.
The full dwarf army showcase is going to have to wait. After a brief search I remembered that they are in a box at my daughter’s house, so a reunion will have wait until after the current travel restrictions.
