Bullets,Buttons and Bubbles

By chase
Another character from the recent Steampunk weekend.
I loved this guy's red tunic with the shiny buttons & make-believe bullets.
All was well until he put his pipe in his mouth & began to blow bubbles with it !!

ISO 200
F/L 50mm
Centre weighted metering.
Raw file converted in C1
Texures added & fiddled with in Photoshop.

The red bg you may ask ???...well,I'm feeling red today Wink

I'd personally have the background a little darker .... I'd do a mod but I've got to go and cook Mrs U's dinner any minute now Sad

Anyway, stuff the background as this is ace Janet ...... vibrant, colourful, larger than life and really quite wonderful.

I predict stickers ..... but you'll have to wait five days for mine as I just awarded it to a couple of nude birds drinking cups of tea Wink

Be a crime if people don't view this large, the detail with the processing is spot on.
