Combustible by Felix-El-Gato Combustible by Felix-El-Gato
My first upload on DA, and fittingly so. Probably my best work to date.

It's basically a big gunmetal robotic creature, but you could probably already figure that out for yourself.

More pics here at Flickr: [link]

C&C appreciated :)

This really is an awesome moc, great use of a lot of new Hero Factory pieces. Gunmetal FTW. Though where exactly are his eyes/head?

Excellent use of HF armor!! All the different angles and spikes.... and that's really clever with the spike-feet. I didn't get it til I read the comments. =P

Awesome work!

Thanks Dave! Haha noo, if you look carefully, its right shoulder spike is leaning on the side of the lightbox.

You're welcome...Felix? Is that what you'd prefer to go by? Ah I suspected it was, but I'm not one who likes to assume. Light box? Is that how you make your pics look so good?
Reply
:iconfelix-el-gato:
Felix-El-Gato Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yeah, just call me Felix. :)

Yup, it's basically just a cardboard box with hollow sides, with tissue paper wrapped around it. That way when you position a lamp above the box, the tissue paper spreads the light evenly throughout. Pretty sure Lord Oblivion's got a picture of his one in his Flickr photostream if you're interested...

Oh, and photo editing really makes a difference for good-looking pics. I usually just up the brightness and contrast levels a bit.

3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Okay. :D

I can't use boxes. With MOCs as big as mine, either height wise or length wise, I'd need a pretty damn big box and a lot of tissue paper. I sometimes photo edit my pics to, generally just saturation to return the color my camera sucks out of the MOC and a bit of brightness Most of the time I don't even think about editing the pics, I go straight from snapping the picks, viewing them on my computer,deleting crappy ones, and uploading the few I like. If I do detail layouts I edit them since I'm using the same program anyways.

Felix-El-Gato Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ahh yeah, forgot how huge your MOCs are xD

I'd still have a play around with lighting and editing. Try not using flash, and instead just having one light above the MOC and one from the side or front. Works wonders :)

:icon3rdeye88:
3rdeye88 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, they're pretty big, or some of them are anyways, not all of them are. Some people forget or don't even pay attention to the fact I've got regular sized MOCs.

Well with my current set up I've got a desk lamp that I shoot from the side, and one of those room lamps on a poll that I'll stick in front of it. It works alright but I think from above would work well to. Plus I've got to use a sheet so there's wrinkles that cast shadows in the background. I was using a white one but it made all my flashless pictures look very yellow in tinge. I find the light gray one fixes that. Its a good medium color. Silver and grey blends in a little bit but not too bad.

Very abstract indeed o__o Is it just the lighting, or is it supporting itself on its two back-spikes?
