Last week, my order for the Gothic Devil Girl from hobbyfan arrived. I would have to say that I’m very impressed with Sparkle’s work. The paint is excellent, with nary a single mistake with their paint lines. Very accurate, and very detailed, with no bleeds, no stray paint, no rough surfaces. It came packed in a nice labeled box in a very well protected cut foam.
Recently, I haven’t had much time, so I was only able to take a small number of photos of her. No full body shot yet, but I’m thinking that if things go smoothly, I’ll be adding more photos to this post as I go along.
I tried experimenting with HDR again, but it doesn’t seem like I’ve gotten anywhere with it. Most of the photos I do tend to have this look after photoshop touch-ups, but the HDR ones tend to look less grainy because of the higher spectrum range. Unfortunately, it means needing to use a tripod, and limits the photos I can take.
Out of all the HDR photos I took, I would say compositionally, this one looks the best vertically. Though it’s not as well colored as #2. The second shot has good composition for a desktop wallpaper, which it currently is for my desktop at the moment.
In this week I may get an opportunity to do some more close up shots of her. In the meantime, don’t forget that my gallery has other works too http://www.radiantdreamer.net. Stay tuned!
