This morning Mrs Mail Lady dropped off Good Smile Company’s “Godoka” figure in a rather large box. Measuring in at around 35 cm by 36 cm by 37 cm, Godoka is not a small girl. What Mrs Mail Lady didn’t tell me was that she’d put another figure in the mail boxes. Hours and hours later I finally bother to check the normal mail and lo and behold, Kotobukiya’s Char arrived as well.
Seeing as there aren’t many warm days left with fall progressing quickly and winter rapidly approaching, I decided to take the opportunity today to go out for a ride. It was a balmy 15°C / 59°F and windy as heck!
The name “high park” probably brings to mind the outdoors, things like trees and fields, people and picnics, plants and wild life. Dirty storm drains probably don’t top ones list of things they’d associate with a park but that’s where Chag and I went to shoot our Evangelion figures.
This past weekend Chag from Hobby Hovel and myself visited High Park in Toronto for some figure photography. Those following on Twitter will know we photographed Kotobukiya’s recent Asuka and Rei figures, but I couldn’t stop there. So of course I brought along Horo, this time Good Smile Company’s.
Had a little time tonight so I thought I’d pull out my Wacom for the first time in probably well over a year and do a little ‘shoppery. I didn’t spend a lot of time trying to make her look perfect but for a quickie I think this is good enough.
This morning I noticed I was receiving hits from Isuna Hasekura’s blog (author of Spice & Wolf) and the thought dawned on me, I never followed up my trip posts with any properly post-processed photos. Just there poorly and “quickly” (netbook’s are never quick) processed ones from the loaner netbook I was using. So here’s a compilation of all the Horo shots taken.
Since disassembling my “studio” to bring in a couch in it’s place I’ve wanted to take more photos of my figures. Figures. Trying to keep some semblance of creativity I messed about with Lightroom and turned this into the above photo. I like how it turned out, could probably use some more work touching up bits of it, perhaps removing the yellow tones from places I’d rather not wish them to be, but it’s good enough for a bit of fun.
I wouldn’t normally make a post for something like this, but since Twitpic decided to make this image vanish I figured I’d put it somewhere they couldn’t do that. Perhaps it was a bit too racy, who knows.
