I saw this a little while ago-but came across it again. LostRite on Instructables did a decent job of imitating my design and making the plans available for all. I give her props for that. Here is her link (I think her second attempt)
Although this looks like it’s been Photoshopped extensively, it was actually shot behind a heat warped plastic sheet with a four foot light reflector placed behind the model. The light source was a skylight that bounced the light off the reflector. It was shot in color and desaturated in PS, but all the weird blur and textures are real world.
Almost finished with my Holy Roman Iron Knight. I thought it would be fun to put him in a Regiment going off to fight Saladin in the 2nd Crusades. Still have to add some filigree to his boots as well as finish up his Rose Window. Photo courtesy of Getty thru the Metro.UK
