    Find a bright location, then look for even shade, and use a reflector.

    Have fun.

    Settings can be seen in the exif data. The warm tone comes from WB "Cloudy".

    for dolls (or whatever that is...) you can use a reflector. Don't have it? Use a mirror, cooking foil, etc.

    Reflector can be anything that can reflect light. As listed, got many more...even a friend's white tee shirt also can. In fact, I once made a friend stand-in with his white tee as a make-shift reflector since we needed another one on location and ran out.

    Asking questions is a good thing, but thinking of copying someone's settings to replicate results will not teach much.

    Also, same settings may niot work for you, but give bad results.

    Study the photos you like and try to figure out where the main light was, and where the fill light came from.

    In the photos you linked, it's super easy.

    Then using your knowledge and experience of basic photography, start taking your own photos of figurines in a similar settings (if that's what you like) and experiment to find out what gives you the best results.

    If basics not sure, time to put camera down and start reading. Seriously.

    All the best.

    It seems the right-click menus have been disabled by scripts. Using Firefox as browser can help here:
    - Download NoScript addon
    - Download Exif viewer addon
    Use NoScript to deactivate all scripts for that page, with exif viewer you can view the exif data via right-click on any big image (use 'view exif data of image' .. NOT '.. of link').
    Please bear in mind that NoScript needs some configuration, otherwise all your other websites will have trouble to work. If unsure just deactivate addon afterwards and it's all back to normal.
