Anime: Zero no Tsukaima
Here is the second of my five new indoor shoots, described: here. I did five photo-shoots indoors and Siesta here was the second one of the five I did. Stay tuned for the others, plus my overall impression of my indoor shoots. All pictures link to their larger counterparts.
I wasnâ€™t originally planning on doing five figures in my recent shoot, I had just hoped for one and maybe more if I had time so I just picked a simple figure I had because I thought it would be quick. Well I then proceeded to do three more shoots. Siesta here isnâ€™t necessarily one of my favorites, but was simple enough I decided to do a quick figure shoot of her.
I think the actual pictures turned out a lot better than my previous Horo figure. I attribute it really to the color. I think the blue background handles the light a lot better and really makes the figure itself pop. I still have the problem with not having a good enough camera to focus well on the figure, but the colors and lighting are much better than Horoâ€™s.
As for the actual figure itself, itâ€™s pretty good. Itâ€™s nothing too impressive or flashy, it doesnâ€™t have thousands of parts sticking out or an incredibly detailed pose, but the face is nice, itâ€™s not deformed, and fits the character well. Itâ€™s a solid figure. One of the few recent figures that I could have actually taken outside without a lot of worry, but I still did a shoot of it inside anyways.
As I said before there isnâ€™t anything too impressive with the figure but I do think the face is very nicely done, looks like the character. Iâ€™m also glad they didnâ€™t over exaggerate her breasts even though that is one of the things they tend to do in the series for comedy, they are pretty reasonably sized actually.
Overall I think this photo-shoot went pretty good. The cameraâ€™s inability to do real close up pictures hurt but I think the color and lighting went much better than the last one I did. Stay tuned for more indoor shoots, the previous indoor shoots can be found here for Horo
