New Graphics!

September 23rd, 2006 (10:52 pm)

current mood: tired

I had a nice photoshoot today, working on headshots for new Chikara and Nasake profile pics. The results are on the user page.

I also redid the default icon, to include different photos of Shu, Hatori and Chikara (with new faceup) and added Nasake and the Japanese.

Finally, I added new Chikara and Nasake pics to the doll label sig.

Now I need to go change Shu's clothes into something Japanese for the Fall festival tomorrow.

I like!

And dammit, stop making me want a Megi with cute Chikara pictures!

Chikara had some GREAT shots happening today. I wanted one showing his eyecolour for the profile pic but I think I got better ones of him in other photos.

Megis are CHEAP! You KNOW your blue-eyed Miki boy wants a Megi friend to love!

You really don't want any icky girl dolls - you want a pretty Megi!

Okay, you DO realize you could get a Megi head on a DZ girl body, right? So the question is, can a Megi head fit one of your girl characters?

Miki might kill you.

Ohhhhhh really I might have to hit you now. TT_____TT I really REALLY WANT ONE.

Also, no, because the girls are now going to be SD to fit in with the story [if I even keep on with that- so much is changing that I don't know what I'm going to end up doing]...

...but wait if I don't do the story...

No, you NEED to do the story...

It has been a driving force for you, and justification for your dolls. Don't let it go just because of Megi lust.

Just add a Megi in the storyline later on!

Get your core dolls - your dream dolls - and get that story going!

The Megi will be around for a while.

No no, it's not just because of Megi lust, it's because of lots of things. Like the fact that Vincent was supposed to start straight, but now Liz and I are contemplating things between him and Toubi...I dunno.

And the girls haven't been constant in their moulds, either. I wanted MNFs, then CP girls, but I'm not sure if I like their headmoulds as much as I used to...I'm really still figuring them out, since I have a while anyway- I wouldn't even be getting the first one of the girls until Christmas or so.

Sigh, I don't know anymore. My dolliewants keep changing around so much. :[

Too bad you cannot find at least one of your girls in a Dollzone girl sculpt. She would be cheaper than the ones you mentioned and a great poser. The only head I like of the girls is one I would change into a MSD Shuichi, though.

How many more days do you have to wait until Vincent is in your arms?

I agree. I really liked the idea of having one of them be a DZ girl, actually, because I know how well they pose. Sigh.

Vincent will be shipped by the middle of this week at the latest. I'm hoping that they ship him tomorrow and that I have him by Friday...

It's great Vincent will soon be on his way to you!

I noticed you'd updated Nasake's profile on the DZ database before you did this. *laugh* I really like his wig, I didn't feel it was right to comment there on it. It really suits him and his character, it makes his eyes seem very dark and serious/intense. I dig him muchly. *grin*

I like how Chikara's new picture manages to coax a wee bit of his imply grin.

I've been wondering, have you found a new wig for Hatori yet, or have you decided that his default is okay with nudging? I remember you were having issues all across the board with him, wig, clothes, shoes, etc, due to his size. He's such a handsome boy, too. Hatori, in the show, was bar none my favorite, and I once even watched two episodes on mute and unmuted only when I saw him talk. It was at that point that I realized that the show wasn't my cuppa tea and stopped watching.

Yes, I updated the DZ guys' profile photos at DoA. I will probably continue to change the photos out as I get better ones.

I was searching for that Chikara grin with the various angles while shooting. He still is a great face poser. It was difficult to decide which photo to use but I knew the profile pic needed to show the colour of his eyes so that narrowed the choices quite a bit. That's why the little photo banner has something different. Same with Nasake - I couldn't make up my mind which to use so I used a different pic for the photo banner.

I have pretty much given up on a wig for Hatori. The default is the best out there so far. I got him another suit recently but haven't opened it yet. I do a clothing shoot every time I get new Matt clothing for him so I can have a catalog of it for DoA eventually. Someone on one of the Tae threads mentioning getting a 'database' of stuff that works for Tae so we have a resource of what works for the little bugger. I hope someone puts it together. I will stick all the photos there when that happens.

I agree, Hatori is my fave, too. I initially liked Shigure (and still do) but Hatori is definitely the one for me. The manga really opened up the character for me. I like the interplay between the two - the devious dog and the sleeping dragon.

I left a little note for you at my lj.

I haven't gotten off my ass and added any of my dolls to their respective databases...don't know why. Lazy, I guess? Although, I do like reading them myself, or often I just look at pictures. I think if I did make database entries, I'd just link the main images to a subfolder and call the image "current.jpg" or something, and just save over it when the need arises (lazy again, heh).

I bet you'll have a lot of useful entries to a Tae database. It sounds like a very good future tool for me, as well, since I'm fairly sure I'll eventually give in to temptation and buy myself a Tae and Il, I'm just not ready for Ma-kun and Tachi dolls yet, if that makese any sense. The Tae fandom is lucky to have you, you're definately a contributor.

I've been told by several people that I really ought to like Shigure, I haven't seen enough of him to really tell, but most people say, "You'll like him, he's a writer!" and that sort of reasoning always kinda made me twitch.

I didn't decide to put anything in the databases until I got halfway decent photos of the guys. Why put out blurry and crappy photos?

I debate if I should start the Tae clothing thread myself but I haven't a clue where to put the damned thing. And I think, should I dump all the photos at one time or do it in sections? Decisions, decisions... I think I will take a nap instead.

I can understand not being ready for your OD dolls yet. It was awkward when Hatori and Chikara came within a week of each other and I was able get through a full bonding with Hatori before Chikara started causing trouble. Everything is much better now, partly because my little doctor is the calm within the chaos.

You need your Weiss guys in place and settled in and well-establish before you start considering new personalities into your household.

Heh, saying you should like Shigure because you are both writers is like saying a painter should like Hitler because be was a painter, too. Pfhhttt.
