Rex's "special" Clone

Post by ARC CloneTrooper141 on Mon Sep 29, 2008 1:54 am

This is a WIP of Rex's "special" looking clone(I have no idea what they're called but I saw them with jet packs with Anakin and Asoka on the twilight in that CW preview special). The decals are stickers but i'm going to use waterslide decals once I get some decal paper. I just wanted to know what you guys think. Smile







Enjoy! Smile

You've done an amazing job on it, that's for sure. My only issue is the lighting but, as I can still see the clone, all is good. Smile

Thanks for all the comments guys! Sorry if the pics are blurry, I have a really sucky camera... Roll Eyes I might get a new camera though if I start making stop-motion vids. Smile

Personally I would stick with the stickers! I hate decals anyways. Unless you put chemicals on them they rub off and scratch very easily.

That's awesome! I really like it! I think his "fin" needs to be covered up more, I can still see some white.

He also needs leg decals, he looks plain without them.

Well I might not because when I fold their legs forward, the decals get crumbled up, thats why I might use waterslide decals.

Photography 101

Ok if you haven't gone digital your either dumb or a professional. Digital allows you take thousands of pitures and print the one that's the best and throw away the rest.

So, digital photography 101.

The Basics:

Mega pixels:
Mega pixel size is very import! If you don't know what the mega pixel size your camera, buy a new one. The more mega pixels the better resolution you get which equals more details.

More info go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel

Flash:
Flash can be very complicated. If you can take a picture without flash it’s almost always better. Flash will give you bright spots reflected back on your Lego. How do I avoid this? Try to angle the object so that if it has a flat side it is not pointing directly at the camera.

Tripods:

Simple tool, keeps your camera in one place will taking your picture. You can build one out if Lego if you think you really need it. Sometimes a stack of books will do. This will keep you camera from shaking and causing a blurry picture.

Camera Settings:
One of the simplest things can also wreck you picture! What? Yep. Using the “Flower Option (AKA: Macro)”, this changes you camera so that you can zoom and take pictures of objects up close (perfect taking pictures of Lego). However, using this option or the “Super Flower Option” (super zoom) may shut off you flash. This means the camera has to try to sense more light which takes longer which means if you will most likely move the camera during this time and your picture will be fuzzy.

The Super Secret Weapon:
What’s “The Super Secret Weapon”? Time.

Take the time to set up you picture. Make sure you know how you camera focuses. Check you angles and find one that helps tell the story. (I could go into a whole subsection later if anyone wants.) Clear everything out from behind the picture. Buy some poster board or a roll of paper (NOT rolling papers). Having a clear background is huge. You may have noticed that most of my pictures are on plain tile floors, plain light brown carpet, or on white paper. This allows the view to focus on the item not the title of the video in the background.

Finally, “The Super Ultra Mega Secret Weapon”:
Using the camera timer! What? When you use the regular button on you camera, you push down on the button and the camera takes the picture. This causes the camera to shake just slightly and you end up with a slightly fuzzier picture.

So, with a camera with more then 2.0 mega pixels, use the zoom option on a plain background, with the flash off in a well light area, turn the timer on and use a tripod.

Finally if you don't believe me go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photography And learn more than me. Thanks for reading everyone and keep biulding.
