Ayup white paper helps alot with the pics but yeah, not sure when im going to get my camera but /hopefully/ tomorrowbloodhound said:OMG! That's what I need to do. Stand them on white paper. And I've been cracking my head trying to figure out why the lighting sucks on my mini Photos.
K heres my test model with the black ink, its my first try and also practiced it on my worst looking model, looks alright, its hard to not pool it on the flatter surfaces though, since it just either sits there in a pool or completely reabsorbs into the brushNot bad at all. One suggestion: go over the silver parts of the model with straight black ink, taking care not to pool it too much. Water it down even if you wish but in either case, this will take the 'shine' out of the metal and give it a more gritty, lifelike look. Check out the pic of my marine squad to see what I mean:
