It worked out, and I ended up buying a couple more rollers too!

Cheers mate, I cant recall where I first saw it, but its a handy trick!

I took a couple of pics with the SLR yesterday because it was overcast, but a far off bush fire caused there to be a redness to the light which i tried to correct in post. Long story short,they came out a bit dark so I'll take some more when the smoke clears off -
















Thanks for looking!

Steve,
That is some awesome work! I can't imagine how you find the time for all of that fantastic shading.

Once you've finished, it'd be really great to see both photos in color and black and white.

Seriuosly top shelf!

Cheers Gaz! Time is always against us!

I'd like to have a play with black and white, and some other photoshop experiments - I added a background and some motion blur to this one:



Thanks for looking!

Great looking diorama with lots of fine details! Combat action scenes with multiple figures can be a challenge to get all the elements working together, but you've pulled it off really well. Thanks for showing your in-progress steps as well!
