If I said no, would you actually explain it to me in awkwardly excruciating detail?

I'd like to think that if a sculptor, male OR female, is good enough to sculpt figurines of that caliber for a living, they got over petty things such as bathroom breaks a while ago and know how to exercise some professional restraint. The ones who get distracted are either working for a less prestigious company, still having fun in college with their Visual Arts degree, or are the ones buying the figs in the first place.

I'd like to think that. I really would.

If you've got to jerk off over a figure, you're likely in prison and carving a vagina out of soap.

Wow. I would have expected all of this after I posted the Black Queen pics, but a picture of a futuristic killing machine was the catalyst? Odd.

I was referring the Terminator, clearly.

Knowing relatively little about comic book characters, I am now inclined to believe that the Black Queen is in fact a futuristic killing machine.

What did I tell you about listening to ass-centric raps?

I know, right!

I had this weird fucking episode a few weeks ago. I'll elaborate. I usually roll with a single CD in the car that I'll play it out until I can't stand it any longer. Sometimes months will pass before I change it. One day I was in traffic or some shite and all the classic rock stations (oh yeah it was Lennon's birthday or some gay Beatles related BULLSHIT) were playing Beatles. My only recourse was rap radio.

I'm absolutley serious when I say this, those fucking guys really are geniuses. After hearing this Jay-Z song one time I was singing "In Neewwwwwwwwww Yorrrrrrrk, These streets will make you feel brand new, The lights will inspire youuuuuuu." at work the following day. Swear to god. There aren't many songs in the world that are catchy enough to remember lyrics after one listening than maybe say Row, Row, Row Your Boat.

Same with that g-string song. Before I knew it I was actually spinning past the stations a few days afterwards to see if they were on again. Of course they were as all of these stations play the same 6 songs on a loop until 6 "better" ones come out. It's kinda like how Bestbuy stocks dvds!

I particularly like that middle one, which I've called "An Afternoon Stroll in the Jungle."

Just trying out a new method. This is a composite of 27 macro shots.

Well, I'm gonna go into camera speak.

DOF (depth of field) = The area that's in focus.

I'm sure everyone knows what macrophotography is, but in case you don't it's a way of getting lots of detail from small objects. Say for instance, a close-up of a housefly that looks like a portrait of a human. The downfall is the extremely shallow DOF. You get lots of detail, more so than a normal photo of a small object, but in a very confined range of focus.

On a camera, the higher the f-stop the higher the focal length or DOF. I normally shoot on average anywhere from 1.8-4ish for the average shot. 3-4 is usually more than enough to capture everything I'm shooting in focus. On a macro lens, even higher f-stops have extremely short depths of field, and even if you turn it way up you still have a very small focus area.

For instance, here's one of the photos I stacked. You can see that the the chain on his left shoulder is the focal point. Everything closer to the camera and further away from that point is outside of the DOF and outside of the focal range.

Image

By taking several exposures at different depths of field, aligning them and blending them just right I can get a single macro shot that has the entire figure in focus. I could have easily taken a single shot with a normal lens with the entire figure in focus, but I would have had nowhere near the amount of detail a macro shot can pull out of a smaller subject.

These are the kind of photos I'd love to take of my toys, but I have neither the ability, or most importantly, a good camera.
