Here are some comparison shots of the Ork powerfist:
Old on the left, new on the right. It seems that while the focus is better in the new shot (due to a new method I discovered) the color is better in natural sunlight than with the array of lights, even after correcting in Lightroom.
In this next comparison, we have an old shot taken by OTT light, and the new one with the lighting array and manipulated in Lightroom.
I would say that the focus is again better in the new shot, but the colors are not quite right, the red in particular looking a bit too orangy. (I also need to hit these guys with some matte sealer!)
Here is the fellow from the Irony, MT bunch, where you can again see the improvement in focus, and here you can also see an improvement in color, although it is still lacking as compared to having the figure in hand.
