Here some [crappy] photos of my first attempt of a scratch-build 1:6 scale outdoor diorama. This is very much a work-in-progress.

I recently got an Xbox One and been playing a lot of Ryse. It inspired me to create the following gladiator diorama. Click an image to see a larger version.

Here are the before and after images of my custom 1:6 scale ninja figure. Click the images for a large version.


1. This is the raw untouched photo.

2. Removed the stand by cutting out the background.

3. Created a black-to-gray gradient background and added a little noise to help prevent unwanted banding when exporting the compressed image.

4. Painted the shadows on the ground.

5. Touched up around the edges of the figure, especially the right side of the skull mask. I also darkened the underside of his gauntlet.

Final Image

6. The final step was to adjust the image's overall color levels to add more contrast and (hopefully) emotion.

Another Fett Will Be Mine!
Can you really put a price on snagging quality Action Figures? As always, I recommend hooking ASAP whenever a new dude is found. This course of action however can prove to be...a bit unsettling on the homefront from time to time :)
