Ever the light cuts the shadow by fadeddreamss Ever the light cuts the shadow by fadeddreamss
Ever the night springs from the light.

The first time he walked in those woods after being reborn, Leon felt like nothing would be the same anymore. There was something different on him and he knew his connection with the elements was stronger than anything he ever felt. After seeing the other side, the elf could understand a lot better how nature weaves it's strings.

Hey guys, it's been a long while! :D But wow, i've got some pictures to post now and I'm trully happy with them! On November 19th we had a cool doll meet in the local Botanic Garden (God I love this place) and we had a lot of fun with dolls! How I missed being able to photograph again ^__^ I even thought my skills were rusty, but I'm just like always~

Anyways, hope you guys like!

Very beautiful picture. Loved the eyes and how deep they look. It feels very emotional, sad and proud a little. Doll shows proud. Background looks awesome, because I have seen similar backgrounds before, but nothing like this. Doll looks very good, it looks almost alive. Maybe its the angle of the photography, but it surely has the effect that most dolls photography doesn't have. Loved the colors, because background compliments doll very much, makes this picture whole and perfect. Maybe the originality of this picture isn't something I haven't seen before, but it looks no less beautiful. Its very unique and outstanding work of photography. Author surely can work both with camera and the doll.
What do you think?

Yes, me too! o/ Final Fantasy has such a great lore... I love how imaginative the SQUEX team is to create each one with different things. And how some pieces of the stories relate with real life, with elements of mythology, religion, and so on..

Gorgeous BJD!! I wish I had the money/patience to buy/paint more! I absolutely love his eyes and lips. The overall balance of the photograph is very nice, and I love the glittery feel of the background.

Thank you so much!! I love this boy to bits since he was my dream doll for a looong time before I finally got him... ♥ Well, BJDs is a big hobby for me and yeah, it's time consuming... I feel a little guilty for not being able to play with my dolls lately :/ *studying + working* @.@ Thanks for the compliments...~ The background was a surprise for me when I looked in the camera LCD after shooting... I was a bit distracted when I shot this picture because it was windy... XD

Eu sou apaixonada pela 50mm! Ainda mais que eu faço muita fotografia macro por causa dos bonecos, então acabo usando-a um pouco mais do que a 18-55mm... muito obrigada de novo! Vou continuar treinando pra que meus trabalhos sejam cada vez melhores!

Arwen: Você não veio me visitar :I Eu estava usando calças, só porque você reclamou dos shorts e nem ao menos se dignou a me fazer uma visita... Pelo menos eu conheci outra pessoas (e dragões >_>). A moça Milena é muito bonita e deu dicas de beleza e postura pra mim, se você vier me ver da próxima vez, você vai ver u.u

Sharu: É, então, ela infernizou a pobre Milena e você e seu irmão tiveram a sorte de serem poupados.

Eu gostei muito dessa foto :V
Aliás, queria muito ter ido no JB, mas eu vou mandar fazer novas roupas pra elfa e pro Conde-Stress, aí eu vou PRECISAR tirar fotos no JB com eles <3

Leon: Que bom que a Milena te ensinou alguma coisa. Já que você se diz uma dama, deveria para de agir tanto como uma criança. *sorri* Acredito que as duas se deram bem, Sharu, a Milena parece ser uma moça muito paciente. *zoada básica*


Brigada, xuxu! >w< Eu também amei essa foto ♥ O Leon ficou muito bem na natureza... a gente sentiu falta de você lá, mas né... pessoa ocupada com a faculdade comendo o cérebro, fica difícil XD CONDE-STRESS AHAHAHUAHIUEHIUALHFLIUAHDIUDHGUSIGHAF MORRI

Yeah, I'm going to try to get a head sculpt at some point, but I have no money atm :iconembarrassingplz: But before that I want to get more clothes and such for my resin/vinyl family seeing as they all have 1-2 outfits each, and my sewing doesn't look professional enough for me to take them out in the clothes I make them.. ^^'
