Maybe can post just a few selected photos in still-life gallery, and seek critique from members there.

Google is your friend. Make use of it.
nice pictures turtle-san! although it makes me feel wrong looking at them XD
Nope I don't, there are many cases as I've mentioned before; I paint my light slowly.
What I mean is I turn my shutter on bulb mode with remote control. I take the lamp and move around to create various lighting conditions I want. I can use a torchlight a create all rim, key and fill light as I want to.
By looking at my photo you could probably guess where I shone my lamp at actually. 8D
Anyway my method is real cheap but definitely not the most effective in terms of speed.
It's a lot on trial and error and many retakes to get the ideal lighting you want.
Though I must say it's pretty damn fun.
This is lighted with just a SAF torchlight (as good as free!) The eyes have LED inside so yeah.
i have to agree on that. there is no mood in "hardware" to induce a sales, then again this is not the critique folder either.
apart from the above material, can also consider a transparent perspex that you can lay a colored paper (eg white/ black/ red) below to give a reflective surface below.
