Those who have followed DTP for any amount of time, or have a keen eye on recent pictures, will notice a difference in my backdrop for these pictures. On looking over some of the photos I've taken my wife recommended a change for the SDE models. She felt that a black backdrop (opposed to blue) would allow the colors on these models to pop more than the blue background. Overall I've been happy with the results, although the camera can be a bit finicky. I'm still setting up my point and shoot camera on auto for these pictures, and it sometimes decides the black backdrop means it should be a nighttime picture. Apparently there were too many dark colors between the black backdrop and the brown colors on the dwarves, and that's what happened here.
Having now started with the heroes, let's continue on to look at the other heroes I've painted up.
