Re: Wizard's Staff (Build)

Mostly the staff, it's quite a complicated build and I've had to learn a host of stuff I've never done before (such as working wood with a knife). The ghost bot is still in the garage, just needs the servos and circuits out back in it (tho as always, I've thought of improvements - ditch the stand an...

Wizard's Staff (Build)

Pointed the camera at a ferris wheel, set the exposure time to maximum, the apeture wide open and monochrome mode on. And made sure it was out of focus.

It's not all cars :D
