Another quick build. This time I focused on piece combination and used a simple flow pattern. I was not going to make a body for this head but I kept adding till this came out. I initially intended his body to be old and decrepit but I would've scrapped the project or saved it for another time; instead I opted for powerful and wise with a "just past his prime" feeling.


Quick question: How do you photograph black pieces? I'm having suck a hard time making the pieces stand out from each other without blending.


Hope you guys like.

    Have you tried tweaking with shadows and highlights in photoshop?

    ^^ I have tweaked the colors in photoshop, but the photo itself comes out so dark that there's only so much I can do without making it look weird.

    Go to adjustments > shadow and highlight and increase shadows.

    holy crap, amazing...

    I use natural light (teh sunzorz) to make black pieces look good.
