I should mention that the Medusa was featured previously in a TMP Showcase article, and was painted by Demon Brushworkz: TMP link

Reminds me of an old Porky Pig toon when he dreamed he was an ancient Greek hero and took on the Gorgon.

Valid points, all. However, the majority of TMP'ers are hobbyists, who only share photo's of their work to inspire others. For professionals, such as those who paint mini's commercially, this is a great demonstration. The subject, as a whole, is much more complex, but it serves as a great warning, and a sign post, pointing to some simple options to git'er done. Thanks. Cheers!

The camera doesn't lie, but it can easily be in error. For just a very few examples: the color can be off; the image can be foreshortened; things can look like things that they are not.

My camera may not lie, but my copy of photoshop used to be a student of Goebbels

Good grief! I sculpted that back in the 80's- my old sins keep coming back to haunt me!

That is a very useful article. My favourite is the second set. Your comments about lighting are very helpful.
Can I add depth of focus as an issue?
For a single figure does not apply, but for any diorama the simplest measures suffice. Set to AV, chose the smallest shutter aperture allowed (f27 or higher). You then will need a long exposure (and real lighting!) and, so, a tripod and a delay in the exposure, both to avoid camera shake. The results are worth it
