seriously: Great pictures man! Are these "clean pictures" or a bit touched up? And what do you use for lighting and background?

Thanks guys! Where's the "blushing" smilie? :rotfl

Cool, I'll post my other pieces then!

@xeno...these pics are are pretty much raw. Only for the full body shots did I use the "smart sharpen" filter in photoshop, as they came out just a tad fuzzy.

Since the queen is so big, I couldn't use my photo tent, which helps diffuse the lighting. So, I setup some lamps, then put a thin white cloth between them and the queeny to try and soften the light. The background is just a huge piece of fabric I got from the fabric store. I angled it at about 45 degrees to reduce shadows and light reflection (read that in a photo tutorial).

How do you like your Marmit Alien in the bent over pose? I have thought of getting this before.


Anyways Nice collection and nice photos!!

danfaz
07-26-2006, 07:56 AM
Thanks, Jaws!

The Marmit B is a great piece. It's one of the most accurate sculpts out there. There are two versions, a '99 and an '04. The '99 version is the better of the 2, but is really hard to find, and is quite expensive.

There's a bunch of pics and discussion about them here: http://www.thehiveforum.net/forum/index.php?topic=1622.0

Les, that Marmit "B Pose" came out in 1999. Only 250 made for a Japan only market. It's approx. 12" tall, made of resin. Very hard to find these guys intact, and they usually fetch a high price on ebay. There is also an "A Pose." In 2004, they released a reissue of both pieces with different coloring and poses.
