It's hard to see in this lighting, but there's a design on the hammer I tried to bring out. I imagine this is an adamantine hammer with mithril chasing. The shot from behind shows it off the best and it's really apparent in real life.I'm also experimenting with the blog post layout options. So far I don't like any of 'em.
I'm experimenting with the camera and lighting - this was taken in shade at 1:30 PM with a flashlight pointed at the mini. I'm going to create a light box, but I want to paint while the light is good.
