Newten Town Grafitti 1
I have two identical buildings like the one above, and I managed to paint the exterior walls blue on the wrong set of walls on one set of floors. Unfortunately, while the buildings are the same the floors from one will not fit the base of the other. I had even painted the interior walls with different colours to indicate this, but managed to forget this salient fact in my flurry of enthusiasm to get the buildings off the workbench.
So I ended up having to repaint the end walls grey, and I took the opportunity to run a drawing pen around the grafitti to make it look sharper. The slogan is from the Japanese show Fang of the Sun Dougram, Taiyō no Kiba Daguramu. The lead hero mech, Daguramu, became the basis for BattleTech's Shadowhawk mech, and for those who are in trivia, this was Natasha Kerensky's original ride.
The close-up shows the depth of field that I can get using the auto focus bracketing feature on my camera, and it opens up whole swathes of ideas for interesting pictures that would be otherwise impossible to take.
This is the front of the building, and yes my Shadowhawk's shoulder mounted autocannon swivels. When I finish the grafitti on the other building I will post a picture on the blog and link back so you can compare the difference a small change of colour to the exterior can make to the feel of a building.
This and my other buildings are part of my Newten Town project, which I started here and last commented on here.
