Hi brotherhood! We are looking for inspiration for new artwork proposals for MIMBAN, MAGMA and JEDHA Troopers.
Instead of using references from the web, we’d prefer if those of you who have any of these armors to provide us with high resolution pics, so we could select which of them could suit best for artwork swag purpose.
See the attached references and visual guideline and pointers for those submitting photos to the MEPD artwork team:
1. Have your picture taken in a neutral background. A solid color is preferred. Therefore we don’t loose detail when cutting out the pic.
2. Have your picture taken in a straight angle according to your modeling pose.
3. Have your picture taken completely, better yet from the thighs to your head so all detail can be present.
4. Take different shots in the same angle: front, 3/4. Will select the best pose of your self-made photo shooting.
1. Taking your picture in a dark, foliage, or low light background. It makes cut out very difficult and detail may be lost.
2. Taking your picture in a shiny or too white background that may compete with your custom and making it difficult to see which is background and which is your armor.
3. Taking your picture with flash either from your smartphone or digital camera.
4. Taking your picture in full sunlight or complete darkness as detail will be lost or become pixelated.
5. The bubblehead effect. This happens when those taking the picture for you raise the camera or smartphone in an elevated angle making you look like a Funko Bubblehead. LOL.
DO YOU NEED SPECIAL EQUIPMENT FOR TAKING YOUR PICTURE?
Not really, most smartphone now at days come with a decent and powerful camera.
Setting your picture in high resolution or definition will work out fine.
The same applies to the use of a digital camera, at the end it all comes down on who is taking the picture for you and the keen eye to make you look great in a series of pics.
HOW SHOULD YOU SUBMIT YOUR PICTURES?
