Good morning peeps! I need to share a few words with you about today’s post before I run off to work! It’s another Arcade post, meaning it features new releases from the current round of the Arcade and it’s safe to assume that the main featured brand is Bad Unicorn. If you’re not familiar with the brand already, you need to check out their flickr page for all their releases so far, they’re pretty cool! Always original ideas and very picturesque!
Their Arcade set is a Vault skybox along with several decor items and props, so as soon as I saw it and, being the roleplaying nerd that I am, I wanted to play with it. I had so many ideas in my mind on how I’d photograph this but here’s where I had a problem. First of all, I have this theory about blogging gacha sets, that you can’t just showcase one item out of 20. It’s not fair to the brand and also, what’s the point? You might as well just show people the set’s gacha key. Second of all, if you’ve been following my work all this time, you’ve probably noticed that I have a pattern.
I always work on my pictures thinking where is my light coming from. I need a window, a door or whatever that would be my light source. Then I can figure out the rest. If my light is coming from the left for example, then I know my shadows will be on the right. But what do you do when you have a skybox or no windows at all to work with? You need to work with projectors and prim lights. And this is how it can get messy!
I’ve been working on this set since last Thursday. I’ve changed the scene many times, my angle, my outfit, everything! I’m tired! I didn’t like any of the pictures I took. SO, I figured I have two choices. I’d either skip it and move on to my next project or I’ll just post what I came up with and at least respect the hours I spent working on it.
So there you go! Besides, I didn’t put my ass there by accident. I’m counting that at least some people, will enjoy that view! Hehe!
All the details can be found below so take a look and have fun gacha-ing!
Have a great day!
