Tohsaka Rin from Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works comes from the same series of GoodSmile figures as Saber Lily, you could say that this is some kind of an elite set of figures due to the high quality of both sculpting and paint job. Unfortunately this figure is not mine and it was lent to me for shooting, so far I’m keeping her safe for the owner, still hoping for one day to return her so that he/she can enjoy her.
The figure is quite stunning and very photogenic, filled with energy and movement, these are the type of figures that not come very often. As expensive as Saber Lily but worth it, if you’re willing to spend that much that is.
On a side note, I’m thinking of “shutting” down this blog and start a new one, aiming the new one to both photography and figures/gunpla. As interesting as the name animestuff is, it simply doesn’t relate to photography and so I’ve been thinking on a new one, will probably have something to do with my real name than a fictitious one. For now enjoy the pictures, more after the jump.

Yo, guess I still haven’t killed the blog. Well I’ve been very busy with studies and stuff so no time for blogging, but I’ve been active with photography, well from time to time that is. Those that follow me on flickr know that I’ve been taking loads of pictures, be it of figures or landscapes. Anyway, this time I decided to try on my figures a technique called Low-Key. Low-Key lighting is a style of photography which often uses only one key light, direct light to the subject or reflected on a reflector. It’s not easy to achieve the effect directly on figures, unless you have a huge table with the source very far away from the subject, otherwise you have to enhance the darks/blacks of the picture on editing programs.
Word of advice, if you are using Chrome you’ll notice that the colors of some pictures are a bit weird. That is Chrome/Picasa fault because on Photoshop or any other program or browser they look nothing like this.

Jo from Bakuten is back after a long period of absence. Here the light was pointed directly at her. Black and White conversion with selective color.

There are those times that you just want to sit back and enjoy your own private moment and on special occasions you have someone photographing that moment of yours. So I had Ryomou-san from Nanyou Gakuen to share that moment with me this time.
Quite and interesting figure this one of Mou-chan from Orchid Seed, can say that it is my first NSFW figure. Also used some filters on post processing to “cool down” the colours. Proceed at your own risk, there is some nudity after the click below.

Travelling around the globe made me see more things that I ever imagined, specially this time of year, when summer has barely started on the southern hemisphere. It was in one of these countries that I met a Japanese girl called Kureha Touka. Walking around on a golden beach with a blue sapphire sea, with her light brown hair being blown away by the wind I knew I had to approach and ask her for a photo shoot. With the opportunity of appearing on a  photography fashion magazine she agreed with a gentle smile to do the shoot on a special scenario set.

Having fun once again in making promotional images of incoming and released figures. This time only made three and one was quite a while ago. For more info on the brushes click on the pictures.

You’ll notice some differences when you click the picture of Nanoha, I made some changes in adding the name and Alter’s label, but by doing that I moved Nanoha a bit too much and she got “out of sync” with the magic circle.

The 3rd edition of black and white photos of figures is finally here, some day I’ll need to compile all of them into a book (lol). Anyway, I had loads of fun making these pictures, now with a nice black cardboard I can focus in training with black backgrounds. Unfortunately the distance between the figure and the background is not as far as I wanted, or  maybe the light is too strong.

The figure of the year, one the best ever, I could go on and on about her but the truth speaks for itself, Saber Lily from GoodSmile Company is one of the best figures ever to come out to the shelves, even HobbyStock awarded her with the “Best Figure of 2009”. I’ve been in “figure world” since 2006 and of all the ones I own and seen there isn’t a single one that can beat this kind of sculpting and painting combo, of course I still love my Mirei from kotobukiya but Saber Lily is simply from another world. Was extremely lucky to get my hands on one, I had ordered her from Jikai but unfortunately because of the European suppliers that messed up things with the main releases of 2009 (BRS, Fate, Saber Lily and many others), Jikai was never able to get her, so I had to wait for a restock somewhere. Thankfully HobbySearch is a store that is almost always getting restocked, but we need to act extremely fast or else we won’t get what we want due to high demand, I did the same thing with Sheryl.
