Animated Ottawa – (P1)

Thought I’d try something new  with my camera. Might not be new to other serious photographers, but its new to me as I only used it once before during Winterlude 2010. I’m talking about using burst mode in an active location with your camera, then animating it into an animated .gif. I hope you find it to your liking. Oh, and since I added 13 gifs you may experience an internet slow down, or browser lag, depending on your computer set up. I apologize for that.

I also had Saber and Optimistic Penguin‘s blog mascot join me on the experiment as well.

Busou Shinki Battle Rondo – Shinki Net

Hello again!
Thought I’d up a game article this time featuring Shinki-Net. I had too many Figma photoshoots going on and need some variety.

Shinki-net is an online game featuring miniature scale robot figures fighting 1 vs 1 with other highly customizable robotic figures. These figures (digitally and actual 1:1 scale) are mainly female and can be customized into any type of unique character. It’s up to you how you want to treat your Shinki, and how you want them to fight.

Fate/Extra – Limited Edition

Christmasu Saber has arrived! Christmasu Saber? Guys/gals remember the Fate/Stay Night visual novel or Anime series? Fate/Extra adds another story line to that, probably similar to Fate/Hollow Ataraxia. Fate/Extra is supposed to be a J-RPG for the PSP that allows you to be a Master which would allow you to control a Servant.

Also would like to apologize for the image quality as I had to fight with overcast lighting.

Figma Flags

Thought I’d post an article about my Figma’s new flag collection. Nothing special, just that I wanted flags for my Figmas and so I could have them hold it in future Anime conventions or whatever. I’ve been searching for Canadian flag ones but couldn’t find one around me so I decided to craft my own. They look simple enough to make.

For those that missed round one may want to check it out before continuing onto round 2! Round one may be found here – My Favorite Anime – Top 7. Those within round one are my absolute favorite (as of May 26, 2010 and with some from before 2006 or 2003) that support the reason why I watch Anime in the first place. And by user request, here is round 2! Why 7? Youtube embed limit for trailers/OP’s.

Canada Day/Independence Day – Long weekend

With Canada Day being somewhat prolonged into a long weekend I thought I’d extend it into one more article. I would also like to take the time to wish the Americans a Happy Independence Day! We get to celebrate our nation’s birthday in a short period of time. I’m merging Saturday and Sunday morning into this article as there aren’t that many pictures.

(Side-note: No American related images, sorry :(. Images may also be random, though still somewhat fit with article.)
