Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph my lone rolling doll head, a yet-to-be-named Volks Okita Souji II, on a SD13 girl body that was generously lent to me by SassyStrawberry. She even lent me a beautiful dress for it! *__*
I don’t think I photographed her very well since it’s really my first time properly doing so, so I haven’t exactly grasped her angles yet. I had some fun experimenting with the post-processing though! This is definitely one of my most colorful sets to date, haha. (even though it’s quite monotonous with the peaches and pinks :3;; )
In any case, my original purpose in borrowing the SD13G body was to see if I liked the proportions of the head to the body. While most, if not all, of the V Okita II girls I’ve seen were propped onto SD16 bodies, it always seems to me that the proportions looked really elongated, and it just didn’t gel with the image I want of this girl.
When I tested the head on the body, nothing really stuck out to me, except perhaps her head was a little long in comparison. This head has a pretty high forehead in my opinion, haha. Once you put the wig on, however, everything looks okay, so it’s all good! :D
I was trying to achieve some sort of brand ad shot-in-studio look with this one but I’m not sure if I succeeded… I’ll probably be trying this again another time.
And a couple of standard portraits of him wearing Teresa‘s pimp shirt, lol:
I have a srs love-hate relationship with his face-up, lol. oTL
I do like the default face-up by Volks that he currently has, especially the color palette, but the lips aren’t done to my liking. :( He’s due for a new face-up in April and the artist is really good at natural face-ups (Hibiki’s is by her!), so hopefully it’ll turn out well. :D
Photos of Hibiki like this (or Maki) make me happy ♥ I like it when a photo gives me this feeling where I just want to keep staring at it. This happens often with pictures of beautiful guys who just look so unapproachable (okay, I sound like a perv, lol), such as Sakito (Nightmare) and Hyde (L’arc en Ciel).
These two are from an old set of photographs that I was going through the night before in a bid to delete unwanted files from my memory card which was running out of space. If I remember correctly, I was attempting low-key lighting then. Not sure if I succeeded but it was certainly fun and a learning experience. :)
