Ijad Scout

Postby Thaddeus » Fri Apr 19, 2013 10:29 pm

This is mainly a showcase for the legs I've developed so far for my signature frame. (Like xgundam05 wrote on his blog, many builders have a main frame that they use for their signatures and makes you think of them; the mgn for Malcolm, the chub for Soren, and so on. I'm trying to achieve that.) Anyways, here it is.

And here they are on a chub.

I promise that I will find a better lighting solution. Summer is coming, so hopefully I'll be able to get good photos using sunlight! I apologize if my current horrid photos burn your retinas. :cry:

I like the design, very minimalist while still keeping visual appeal. I'd love to have a closer look at the legs, though, since from what you said they seem to be the main focus of the design.

Looks like a pistol tuck in a travis brick, with a tile clip on the back and toe to form the foot.

Heres a better view. It's basically a decorated travis with a tap connecting it to the foot.

there's not enough light coming from them to burn anything I have. ;)

maybe try backlighting with your monitor and bouncing the light back in? super no-budget lighting technique:

I'm sorry but I think that technique makes it harder to tell details on a frame. The pics you have posted there the background is so bright it's hard to make out a lot of detail on the frame.

Harder than op's images? It's not meant to be the best light ever; just a no-budget way to get some pics up. :)

Well the darker pictures tend to hurt my eyes less. Sorry, but the super bright monitor background hurts my eyes. I usually use a wall of grey lego's and natural sunlight for my pics. They tend to come out well enough.

The common idea here from multiple people seems to be to use sunlight. I'll experiment with both sunlight and monitors. :)
