It is odd, I swear that these photos we've been putting on ebay make the upper part of the creature look too big.. I can't figure out if it is just me, or the camera we use is really distorting the image.That unicorn's legs aren't really that short!
haha! I never even noticed till you pointed it out! He does look a lil squatty in the hind end, maybe if Pam (I'm assuming Pam photographed this?) is using a wide angle lens or something.. I've gotten some odd ball lens distortion with a semi-wide angled lens.. or it could be angle? Or we're looking at it a lil too critically, lol! That's always an option
If they're looking top heavy there is a chance there is a slight angle that's adding to the effect... if shes up on it more and looking down that'll change the way the piece looks than if she shot level with the piece.. only prob there is things like the mother dragon (I was just recently taking a photo of my BVP Mother to show friends) if getting straight on like that, you miss some of the details... but with a Grand Uni, I imagine it wouldn't hurt any taking it level with the piece... I dunno, personal experience with photographing things, the slightest angle can make the biggest difference and you really gotta be conscious of what you're looking for to really catch catch it.. 'n sometimes the best photographers will still miss little things, lol
I painted this one over a two day period. I do the base colors one day, let it dry over night and antique and finish it the next day. I often am working on several things at once though, so I really don't know how many hours it took. Thank you so much!
