    Your style is outstanding. And the diorama-building is as good as your painting skill!

    Cheers

    Ahhh ! I see there was somebody really really busy in all that time.
    Master Roi- this is absolutely fantastic. As all the people before had pointed out clearly!

    Especially I like very much that yĆ³u had designed the back and the side areas. Great!
    And now everybody can imagine how it look, going downstairs in Master Barlis cellar . . . šŸ˜†

    Great stuff Hombre! Absolutely great stuff!

    PS: now there is plenty to do in taking all these screenshots . . .

    Wow, what a lot of comments since friday!

    Thanks a lot to all, as I said before, this comments are a strong reason to keep me painting (and collecting) mithril miniatures.

    And now, some new works:

    Tolwen, the elven healer

    And my first fellowship miniature (yes, IĀ“m now proud member of the mithril fellowship), Sauron at the Sammath-Naur. An incredible powerful and elegant miniature

    Roi, Your ladies are just beautiful. :rolleyes:

    But Sauron is my favourite in this set. Last picture is as if it comes from a movie ! :cool::cool:

    That Sauron painting is as great as the sculpture.

    Elroi, you have such fabulous figures!!! The tavern is exceptional (I think I see myself in the corner ;-) but your other figures are also exceptional–WOW!

    Master Elroi, I also think that your painting and presentation of Sauron are excellent. I think it’s right to give him a wider base to add those boulders and stones. Though … that tall stone-pillar to me still looks a bit too much like a resin-casted piece. – I hope you don’t mind my slight criticism (which might be caused by the photo).

    Master Thingol, my camera is digital compact one, a Canon Ixus 117 HS, 12.1 megapixels. And I take pictures with white light, the one of the strip or fluorescent light. I use the Macro option, and some other options of the menu (vivids colours, manually adjusted white balance). IĀ“ll post you the concrete options

    Masters Milo and Shadyt: yes, both the miniature and the third image are very powerful. One of my favorite Fellowship miniatures by far

    Thanks for your compliments, master Twrich (and you are right, you are present in the darkest corner of the Tavern :) )

    Thanks Master Elroi… thanks in advance (for second part of the answer :) )

    Sorry for the delay, Master Thingol

    Here are some easy tips to use in a camera:

    – Always use the macro mode, a tripod and the automatic shoot option

    – Colours: mode intense (emphasizes colour saturation and contrast)

    – White balance: auto

    – Iso: auto

    – Exposure time: + 0,6 (this is my personal choice, but it depends of the camera, light type, etc

    Master Ent, I didnĀ“t saw your comment before! Of course I donĀ“t mind criticisms (contrary, I take advice of all of them).

    Maybe the aspect is a little bit artificial (but is not resin, is a kind of plaster, dentist plaster). I think I should have made all the damage or scratches thinner and smaller.

    The idea for including the pillar was to have a big surface where put the green tones I wanted to (and not doing it onto Sauron itself), inspiring me in the aspect of Peter JacksonĀ“s Minas Morgul :)

    Thanks for this advices Master Elroi… I will try to use those combination of commands for shooting… I really like the expression of your colors and shadows….. :)

    I agree with all camera advices except for ISO. In order to avoid “noise” fix it to a low value (depending on the camara). Start with 100 and go up until you find noise.

    I shall try to use configure my own camera as I only use “default” automatic macro mode before.
    Thanks for all information provided.
