Shining Ark – Angel of Light Sakuya Mode: Seraphim 1/6

  I adore the Tony line of figures. The art itself was great, but the figures are mostly well-sculpted with nice outfits and soft poses. Costume are of fantasy elements but with added anime cuteness. I’m not going to pretend I know what Shining Ark the game is about or who Sakuya is, except she…

The girls are facing different ways, so their faces could easily be in the shadows, especially Holiday (middle). After picking up some studio setup tips, I…
