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 Fixing Four

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”. I used to take pics lacking the backfill, instead used reflectors for those. Works for smaller kits, but once I get to bigger kits… Continue reading Four Murasame on Bed

Almost Four!

I can’t believe I left the CF card at work, so I can’t take pics of Four after just finishing her now 🙁 She’s one of those kits that I say “I’ll finish her today” for a couple of weeks now 😀 Thanks to Masa’s suggestion I removed the green sheet that has pretty bad… Continue reading Almost Four!

Again Walmart answered my call 🙂 I debated a bit on whether I wanted to save the trouble of cutting an acrylic sheet to replace the frame’s glass, but I… Continue reading Weekend crunch #2

Weekend crunch

Except for the few hours that I spent watching Blood+ — these dang end-with-cliffhanger shows are so evil 😀 Her bed frame is made with craft wood, I banged it together and applied wood… Continue reading Weekend crunch

Back to Four

While waiting for some mail order supplies for the Griffith on Horse kit, I got back to my fabrics experiments. Last week I went to Jo-ann’s and got some pretty nice “Prom dress” fabric that has great patterns and texture. The problem is that it has these gold rings glued on the dang thing which… Continue reading Back to Four

Experiments

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 Experiments
