Priestess Nagi

priestess_nagi

So, after seeing RadiantDreamer‘s awesome Halloween Moka project, I decided to try my hand at making figure photoshop projects too — although I can say that I phail miserably. Free virtual cookie to those who can spot fatal mistake #1, 2 and probably  fatal mistake x?

Well, actually, it’s a form of procrastination. I have been commissioned by a friend to create catalogs for contact lenses using flash. Although I’m still downloading flash because my installer is nowhere to be found… OTL I’ve been trying to put contacts lenses on eyes in photoshop — and it’s not as simple as I thought it would be. One can only stare at an EYE that doesn’t blink for so long. ><;

So, enough rambling. I shall try to update in a bit… and I still need to post Kimi ni Todoke posts!

Oh, and… comments about the photo are greatly appreciated!

    Oh my… Nagi-sama … never thought of putting her on Reimu’s outfit myself. Nice! ^^

      Well, I’ve thought about if after pondering about what I can do with Nagi-sama’s melancholy face, and when I was doing my Nendo Reimu review.

      Thing is, Nagi’s head joint was somehow a bit large for Reimu’s body, and so when I put Reimu’s head back on… it was too loose @_@;

    I’d have made the diffused glow not as prominent, you can hardly see the paper at the end of the prayer stick.

    And the eyes.

      Hm.. I haven’t actually put any kind of glow on Nagi… but it’s amusing that she appears so XD

      and that’s the way her eyes really are… it’s one of her faces (and one that I barely use)

    Oooh ! She is cuuuute !!

    Not a huge Nagi fan, but nendo Nagi is adorable.

    so cute! love Nagi and the colors of the photo ^^

    i cant spot the mistakes.

      Thank you! It’s photoshopped though XD I took Nagi’s photo and the background is just a stock photo ^^; I think you can spot a couple of mistakes if you squint hard enough

    Only mistake I can think of is that Nagi is hovering in mid air over the grass :D XDXDXD Though Nagi does look a bit red in the face, has someone been abusing the subject of their photos?~

    Look natural. Good work.

    I did some of the photoshop stuff on of my miku post too sometime back. but the effect is not that great. LOL

    um, all i have to say is that you cant see the flappy white things on the end of the black stick. but
    1. it took me half an hour to find it
    2. i was looking for it and still couldent find it
    3. untill half an hour later like i said already

    i really like the pictures you do, and have a happy halloween!

    Cool idea ^^. Pic is too small to really pic out many flaws. Maybe the way she is standing but still it doesn’t look bad :)

  10. 17 zh3us November 1, 2009 at 12:32 PM

    Hit me! Thats really accurate! Nagi was a Priestess! =PPPPPP

    don’t worry about failing, im far worse off than you. =///

    Aside from the aforementioned “floating Nagi”, I don’t really seen anything wrong with it. Maybe the lighting? It’s really hard to tell when the picture is this small. ^^;;

    Anyways, really lovely photo. :)

    @Rapunzel: LOL. I don’t think I’ve done anything of the sort. I just noticed this when you said it… hm. Must look at her again. As for the hovering in mid-air… I wasn’t quite sure how to go about making her seem like she’s among the grass, and making it seem like she’s really there and not shopped. OTL

    @LEon: Thank you! I think yours is great! You even have shadows!

    @Clare: LOL ^^; I guess I have to work on making things more visible!
    Awww! Thank you! o///o That means a lot! Happy halloween to you too! :3

    @anonymous_object: I shrunk it down because I didn’t want to upload something this bad in flickr and I just uploaded it in my wordpress server… I guess I can gather more objective criticism if I upload the Hi-res one. Thanks! :3

    @zh3us: actually, she was a GODDESS in a priestess outfit! LOL X3
    Nah, don’t worry about it, you have awesome handicraft and photography skills anyway!

    @Tommy: Thanks! :3 I’ll probably upload a hi-res version in another post ^^

    haha cutee ^_^

  14. 21 thetsundere November 7, 2009 at 1:05 PM

    Oooh she looks good! Really suits her. ^^

  15. 22 chubbybots November 27, 2009 at 5:08 PM

    I’ll be more than happy if I can do something like that! Makes me wanna go grab a photoshop a do these kinds of amazing work…

    Plus Nagi is so cute. The only thing I can’t really see properly are your wordings…guess the back ground is too bright. Maybe if you use a darker font color :D But nonetheless still impressive!

    Hey that’s a cute photo. I’m nowhere in everything that involve photographic, drawing, flash …. so i probably can’t see why you consider this to be a “phail” :p
    I think that’s not bad at all and i would probably be happy to be able doing stuff like this.

  17. 24 Ninjovee December 23, 2009 at 10:01 AM

    ZOMG. I didn’t realize I was way behind in replies. *fail*

    @moemoekyun & thetsundere: thank you!

    @chubbybots: LOL. This isn’t really amazing.. it’s really simple if you know how ^^; Radiant’s work are epic x over 9000 compared to mine :3

    I should’ve probably changed the lightness of the bg… thanks for the input!

    @Katsura-chan: Thank you :3
    I’m sure you’ll be able to do something like it if you get your hands on a good image editing software ^^
