Haha thanks! Quick in that it only really took me about 30-45ish minutes to set up, shoot and edit:ROFLMAO:
It looks amazing! So, thank you for those 45 minutes of your time! 😁
It was totally worth it!

That's about the best that I can manage:

Did you use a simple poster backdrop for your pictures? Or is it printed on some fabric or vinyl?

Thank you! It's actually just a stock image that I pulled up on my monitor. I have some RGB LED panel lights and adjusted the light color to match the lighting in the background image to help blend it all better:

Wow, great work! Never would have guessed that it was just in front of your monitor!
Thanks for sharing! (y)

Hey Firspray, that is an amazing image! My experience from many years ago involved difficulties of photographing a CRT TV and it needed a slower shutter speed. Does using the flatscreen require any special treatment with the exposure?

I've never had any issues unless I was shooting with the screen background completely in focus, at that point you can start seeing the pixels on the LCD screen.

I was one of the unlucky people who bought that headsculpt repaint off Ebay last month and got the batch with the weird eyes with tiny pupils. Finally sat down with it tonight to fix them up. Darkened the original drab green tone just a little bit and added in some yellowish brown tones to try and get the hazel color effect and then enlarged the pupils. Might not be 100% accurate but I'm happy with it.

I'm thinking I'll try and touch up the skin tone later and add some more tones and reds in the skin, trying to avoid having to do a full repaint and bringing out the airbrush.
