Fixing Four

Fixing Four

I’ve been working on and off doing fixes to Four Murasame that I posted a few weeks ago. Apparently a combination of factors made some people think that the shape of her breasts weren’t right, in that they were cone-shaped and didn’t flow smoothly from the chest. After investingating a bit, I think the problem … Continue reading

Four Murasame on Bed

After messing around with lights I’ve finally taken the batch of pics for Four. I now see why photograher needs two sets of lights, one for backfill and one for “above”.

The problem is that it has these gold rings glued on the dang thing which … Continue reading

I went to a local Jo Ann’s to buy some fabrics for my Ring-Ring Rang-Rang pair. I ended up spending 2 hours there to pick different fabrics for my kits! I remembered this Four Murasame on bed kit from a while ago – I never could decide what I wanted to do with the bed, … Continue reading
