Project Treads: Some questions
Join to comment
 Group moderator 
So my Project Treads has gone quite far and when I post it I want it to be displayed well. So I have couple questions. I'm putting this now so I'd have answers ready when Project Treads is finished. To give some image I can tell that Treads will be over 100cm tall.

1. Should I show WIP pictures? In the finished creations page or in a separate page? I'm building at the point when they'd be taken, so I need a quick answer.
2. The creation's big so any advice for good pictures (background, lighting, etc.) ?
3. I've thought of having a theme song for the creation. Any advice on how to edit youtube embed to be just the play button?
4. What kind of poses should I take? Any others than stand and battle poses?

If you have any other advice to give, feel free to tell.

A low angle will make your MOC look bigger.
A comparison shot with a Toa and/or a minifig would be very cool.

I need an answer soon to question 1. The basic structure of Treads is soon done. So do you want the whole thing as a surprise with/without WIP pics on Treads' page or a sneak peek?

Keep any ideas and tips coming =)

I've gone pretty far now and the armouring is on.
Still there's some questions. If ANYONE could have any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
-Still wondering the poses I'd take.
-I need a good white background and I'm not sure how to make one...
-I'd like to put a theme song for him, though I don't wanna put a full YouTube screen, just the play button like Gringat :P

Treads' name has turned into his nickname, just to tell =p

Okay, so, first off, the poses you have him in are up to you. One thing I will say is that you want to get full body shots, otherwise it just doesn't look very good, and you can't really tell how big he is, ect.

Second, the white background. If you have a nice unbroken wall, you may want to place a cutting board under his feet to black out wood or carpeting and use the wall as the rest of the background, OR do that, but attach a large white sheet to the wall as well. Neither of these are perfect, but they should do alright.

Lastly, the music. Talk to Gringat.
