I’m calling this baby done. I made some color adjustments, painted the living god out of the shadows, and toyed for an hour with creating the right amount of darkness and space.
It’s time to call it complete and start obsessing over the Next Thing.
Thanks to ffssynchronize for solving a rather frustrating problem that I ran into right at the end with a graceful, simple fix.
I hate the background. I wanted them to be backed up against a wall, but this looks… fake? By boyfriend helpfully pointed out that they look like they are standing in front of a photographer’s pull-down background.
So I think I should change it. Any suggestions? I’m not gonna change the rather sunny, rather warm lighting, so follow in that vein.
More (grudging) progress on this Soldier Token piece.
I say “grudging” because I am getting no joy from this thing that I’m doing supposedly for fun. I feel like the problem here is that it got too… good? And now I’m endlessly trying to live up to it.
And I always do that- and then I abandon the project, and as a result I never finish the stuff I’m really proud of.
So I’m trying really hard to keep going on this one.
Okay, so I always wanted the armor to be, like, cream-colored leather. And it wasn’t cream-colored. And it didn’t (and still doesn’t, really) look like leather. And I didn’t notice.
How do I make it look like leather. Advice, please. Please.
Is being made.
On a (totally unofficial) Magic Token.
This is what I’m working on.
It’s a magic token. Not an official one, just something I’m doing for fun.
Don’t judge me, bitch.
