Random Figure Photography

After I got my display shelf, I never got to shooting properly figures until yesterday at around 2 in the morning, and once more about 4 hours ago. I only have red felt paper for photography as of now, so I decided to just reshoot Fate. I think the shots turned out better than my previous try (though the images have long been deleted since, so I can’t really compare).

I used to have a relatively small table with just about no space above it, so I couldn’t really go for underside shots. However, this time, I have a good bit of space now (after removing one of the glass shelves). I also had some really strong lighting; however, I didn’t have any “white” light, and the cabinet’s pinlight is yellowish, so I ended up having to use 2 incandescent lights, one of which is from my lava lamp LOL
Thankfully, the camera had different white balance settings, so they still look pretty decent. Anyway, have a few of what I think are the better ones.

PS: I love Bridge and its Batch Rename, Resize, thumbnailing capabilities.

So I haven’t posted much…

Nothing to post right now; the only thing I ever really blog about is CLANNAD, and there’s none of that this week. I’ve also got to work on about 3 papers right now – a research paper for English, a “research essay” (because it’s not as lengthy and detailed) for Filipino, and a major reflection paper for CLE. Anyway, enough about my life, have some wallpapers.

For starters, my current wallpaper: a (super hot) picture of Natsume Rin from Little Busters! Those with rather discerning eyes should be able to see that the source of this work is none other than Cradle.

wallpaper_02_small.jpg
No idea where this came from, nor who the artist is, but still really neat. Used to be my wallpaper until I found the Rin one by Cradle.

wallpaper_03_small.jpg
No idea where this came from either, but there’s a loli.

wallpaper_04_small.jpg
I can’t remember where I got this from anymore too.

And some Macross, for those who like that kinda stuff, or don’t want others to wonder why they have anime girls as their wallpaper.

CLANNAD 18 – totally awesome.

clannad_18_00.jpg

Since people like Owen and JRoxas have posted much, much smarter entries regarding this episode, I will refrain from that (not that I could write that well anyway) and just comment on some random stuff in the episode. 58 screenshots were taken, with 55 (I think being used).

Happy Valentine’s!

It’s rather late, but happy Valentine’s day!

valentines_02.jpg
To those who don’t have one, happy Singles Awareness day!

valentines_03_small.jpg
Well, Aroduc‘s pretty much got me beat on quantity, so I’ll just post this random Lucky Star poster.

Ah, what the hell, a little CLANNAD never hurt anybody. It’s not related to Valentine’s, but then, does it have to?

Many thanks to both danbooru and moe.imouto for hosting the pictures.

Headed in a New Direction

wallpaper_01_small.jpg

I don’t know why, but I never really write about anime, despite being and anime blog. Whenever I do write about something, it just tends to be random rambling with huge walls of text on tens upon tens of episodes that everyone else has talked about. More often than not, laziness, combined with a really tight school schedule (5 full class days + 1 day spent for JP classes) blows out most of the time I could be spending writing. For some crazy reason, Media Player Classic refuses to take screenshots for some reason (god knows what), so I’m pretty much forced to fire up VLC to take caps, and we all know how crappy it is compared to MPC (VLC being able to support an incredible number of formats aside, of course).
At the moment, as anyone can see, all I’m really doing is making intermittent posts on random things I do in real life, or new stuff that I bought that everyone else already probably got/knew about. All this makes me feel like I’m not really contributing any proper content on this blog, and that kinda makes me feel bad about it. It just feels like I’m going nowhere right now, and the thought’s just continuously eating away at the back of my mind right now.

Cutting straight to the point, taking into consideration the circumstances I’m in, can anyone suggest a decent way for me to write about anime and related things?

And just a side note: I’ve always wondered what the top search words were that linked to my blog, and after a minute of clicking, here are the results:
upskirt.jpg
Somehow, “upskirt” managed to get in there without me even mentioning it more than a couple of times.

PS: I’ve also been planning to get a really cheap tablet soon; can anyone recommend a model? Of course, the cheaper the better, but value counts too.

A little something came in the mail today…

ritobasu_01_small.jpg

Mostly to satisfy my Key fanboyism. I’d much rather have the Tomoyo After artbook (not mine; it’s Guncannon’s, that bastard), but it was nowhere to be found, so I settled for the Little Busters! Perfect Visual Book. It comes in a box of sorts and has two accompanying pencil boards (or at least, what I think are pencil boards). The book itself is really heavy (like, heavier than my Bible kinda heavy), hardcover and totally white all over, which sort of makes me scared to even touch it in fear of defiling its pure whiteness. Content-wise, it’s pretty comprehensive, with lots of artwork, character profiles, in-game help and tips, interviews, design sketches, backgrounds, and it even comes with a mini-novel.

I am totally gonna use the Komari + Rin shitajiki as a fan by the way, considering summer’s getting close.
