Lighting Demo Video

It is John from the Unstable Dice and I am needing your input on something I am working on.  I have set-up new lighting that I am hoping to use in future videos and I wanted to get your feedback on the video quality.  

I am using a three-point set-up with two umbrella lights and one softbox light to film against a lime green background using a Logitech c920 webcam.  I am streaming the video through XSplit Broadcaster and editing it afterwards using Camtasia 9.

Overall, the quality seems decent to me, but I am still getting some shadows and notice the colors seem a bit dull.  Overall, what are your thoughts on how the demo video looks?    If you could leave your comments and suggestion below, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Painting Diary - Assembling the Changeling

Created a short compilation video of me assembling the Changeling model. I didn't like how the new lighting looked in the video, so I decided to just take a few different segments and set them to a musical background. I like the idea of this video and may do more like this in the future.

On the Bench: Pink Horror

This week's model is a bit of a rescue job as it started out with a thick coat of Army Builders Green Primer.  I decided to skip trying to strip the paint and just treat it like a black primer and hope that enough layers would give me a decent pink color.  So far, the results seem to be going well but I still have a few more layers of Fulgrim Pink and Vallejo Foundation White before I finished with the skin.

On the Bench: Savage Orruk (Part 7)

Starting to get the tribal tatoos to a point that I like them.  May do an article soon on how I painted them.

On the Bench: Savage Orruk (Part 6)

I find it helpful at times if I focus on one part of a model and paint it to completion.  Seems to help me motivate myself to finish the job.

A couple of W.I.P. of the next savage orruk.

Miniature Mondays: Bonesplitterz Skull Thumpa

This week's finished model is a skull thumpa for my first unit of savage orruks. With this model, I am 50% finished with the first warscroll of savage orruks. A bit of a milestone for me as I generally hate painting units that are larger than 3-5 models as it starts to feel repetitive. Good thing with Mr. Thumper is that finishing him is motivating me to paint another savage orruk right away.

Miniature Mondays: Spirit Host

 Used this last week to finish up some models that were started at some point but sitting on my painting table waiting to be completed.  This is the third spirit host for my first warscroll.  Basing is pretty generic for now, but I plan on circling back with something better when I return to working on my death army.
