Kommentarer Part l: Realistic Twists To Figures & Unique Lighting Figures

  • aah i love figures like this! this figure, ITEM #396908, of galko is my grail that portrays this slice of life atmosphere sooo well. i love figures that have a sense of life so much, compared to figures that are just like a girl standing there smiling lol. no hate on those tho, a lot of the lucky star figures are like that yet i love them still ^p^)b

    This rings true especially when the show in question contains lots of dark, disturbing imagery and depressing topics. It's nice to see them in a softer light, enjoying day-to-day life, as if nothing bad ever happened.

    Take ITEM #34705 (it's also a garage kit, but I'll just use the prepainted for this), for example. She looks so happy here. To me, she doesn't look like a girl who's heart is barren due to the knowledge that she is expendable and that her sole purpose is to bring about the end of mankind, to me she looks like a regular girl who went to the Bon Festival with her friends and got in a sudden downpour, but she seems to be laughing with them about how silly they look with their hair and yukatas all wet.

    Figurines with soft colors and poses that are reminiscent of hobbies we do to pass the time are some of the softest, as well as having the most creative freedom.

    Josine1 år siden#64113955The Ichigo figure has the same kind of ambiance as ITEM #549370, and I have to say I really like that aesthetic as well even though I probably don't own any figures myself that belong in that category (probably because the series I'm a fan of don't really often lend themselves to these kind of themes)

    thank you for posting that figure! I was just about to. one of my favorites. and they're pretty similar, the love live! with fans! line, too, I think. as well as the idolm@ster figures!!

    I have come to realise that what you have put into words here is what I look for the most in figures. Couldn't quite wrap my head around it, so thanks for that

    Great article. This is indeed one subject that is easily overlooked. I like by a lot of figures the nonchalant look when the character is doing nothing interesting. Those are often figures seen in very creative pictures which shows their daily life.
    I look forward to your next blog in this series. And your opinion about the use of different set of lights or including lights in the figure.

    Wonderful article. You articulated something I didn't know I was missing with figures and maybe one of the reasons I don't own more scales. This makes sense though as I've always been a fan of candid photographs vs. posed, so it really isn't a surprising revelation, hah. I look forward to you continuing this series. :)

    I also agree that I tend to like rather gentle looking figures. Though I still enjoy some with a lot of color and saturation. However I do agree that lighting can make a world of difference.

    For instance, I was not intially interested in the vintage dress Miku, ITEM #604392. I felt the colors in the promo images were too bright, her hair was nearly fluorescent. Which if you are familar with the song and video, Romeo and Cinderella, it isnt nearly as bright. However I saw the more normal lighting photos, picture/2011530...,picture/2022848.... Her actual look is much more muted and iridescent, which fits the theme of running into the night with a lover.

    Similarly I am very excited to get ITEM #186848, and ITEM #287683. Not just bc I am a fan of the characters but because I have seen other users photos, they just photograph so beautifully while giving a feeling of the characters, picture/1692553..., picture/1976185... ( two of my favorite photos others have taken). I enjoy looking at my collection to feel cheerful or calm, so those that evoke gentler or more relaxed feelings are certainly welcome.
