About this picture

 
This started as a concept for Figure Friday club/894/discus... because I wanted to 'feature' the plain and ugly black bases found on most Griffon Enterprises figures. That's where I got the idea of portraying them as chess pieces. Then that evolved into this even bigger concept that resulted in many hours in photoshop learning new techniques. Just when I thought I knew the program...

I really wish I had more EoSD figures now.

It was just my Canon Rebel XS. I also used some lens blur in Photoshop on the 'chess pieces' to make them look miniature compared to Remilia. Joonasu7 anno/i fa#1504843http://myanimegraph.k.vu/trackers/MrJoonasu/19967.png

BaldwinNguyen7 anno/i fa#1409829Are you from the G+ Figure Community? I forgot what your name was, but I'm sure you submitted something like this to the figurefridaychallenge :)
Congrats on getting picture of the day!
Yep, I posted the in-progress version with just the 'chess pieces' because I knew it would've been late/rushed if I tried to turn in my final concept before the next challenge. Thanks, and thanks to everyone!

selzeny7 anno/i fa#1410631What a great shot ! It's not everyday we can the see something like this one.
By the way, why does so many people dislike griffon's bases ? I find them much nicer than plain bases...
Thanks! I'm humbled! As for the bases, they can look really nice in collections/displays like this PICTURE #506400 where they're uniform and blend in with the shelf. I think they can also stand out and draw attention away from the figure when displayed on glass or white shelves. Ultimately, you have to work with them to bring out their appeal, which was the basis of this pic :)
