Chou’un Shiryuu is another girl from the Ikkitousen series and from the same school as Kan’U Unchou. She spends most part of the animes Dragon Destiny and Great Guardians with her eyes closed, don’t ask why because I don’t know the answer to that. She is a very powerfull toushi, probably the most powerfull on the anime, although her strenght rivals with the one of Kan’U, not a very serious personality she has, she’s kinda laid back so we can’t really see her potential during the fights.
The shots are a bit different from what I usually take, because in most of these I used the camera’s flash with it’s compensation to -1.
This is another figure by Alter and a great job was done on it, they chose to make her with her eyes close because that’s her trademark and if they decided to include multiple heads (eyes closed and opened) I’m guessing the price would cost even more.
A simple figure none the less, the school uniform is great although it could had been a little lighter like the prototype
I like her face even with her eyes closed
The hair although not as detailed as Kan’U it’s still full of life and detail, I love it ^^
Behind shots, I like doing this with Chou’un, she looks great from behind
Palm tree background this time
Currently I have nothing else to shoot😦 , only after day 20 will I get something new which will be Chua Churam and probably Hayate but don’t know if the last one will get there before that day so until then I’ll try to take some pictures of figures and gundams on my christmas tree🙂
Before I go, I’ll show how I put my photos with more “life”. As you know most photographers treat their photos with photo enhancing programs, currently I use only one program to treat my photos, Adobe Lightroom which I mentioned in one of my previous posts, you’ll see the original and the final picture, there are no curve layers, no saturation layers, nothing, only playing with brightness, exposure, contrast, vibrancy and so on and so on. To do this I recommend always taking your pictures on highest quality and if you have a DSLR take them as raw not as jpeg because you’ll loose loads of information.
It’s a farely simple program and very intuitive to use, only ocupies around 46mb of your hard drive but it can consume some memory usage, play around with it, it’s simply amazing.
