Utena by Jaicca Utena by Jaicca
Anime North was awesome :D I'm so sad that it's over already ;__; I got to meet and print trade with so many awesome artists and people!! I'm so happy that people stopped by my table to say hi!! ;__;

This must be my first time doing a cosplay photoshoot :D :iconcarpevivere: as Utena and :iconkuroame14: as Anthy from Revolutionary Girl Utena. Taken during sunset, I hope you guys like it!!

at first look seams a digital photoart, a digital creation in some 3D workspace.. but than You realize the work that was made for this piece. Custumes, make up, counterlight with sun isnt an easy task wow.. with the 50mm the most difficult lens. The soft tones, the details even in direct counterlight.. beautiful!
The two models are perfect, the expressions are adorable and everything make this work looks fine, looks real, looks like anime and I think that this was the goal for this work. To make a real scene make look like an anime without too much processing.. you reached the goal wit honour - bravo and hope that we will see more works like this in future! :sun:
What do you think?

Better hope Akio isn't watching. Maybe not since Anthy has finally left him.

Definitely a good shot. Wonder if Anthy would practice fighting one day. She might now that she's free.

Twisted scumbag, Akio. Well, you could probably blame the people and their Swords of hatred for the mess, too.

complex costume, simple pose. Now add a reflector (a piece of styrofoam will do) to add some light to their shadow side and you're there.

Nice going there, Jiani! You should continue doing cosplay photos. The sunset, especially, fit this photography! Makes it look way more emotional than just holding hands.
It is a tad bit sad that you cannot see their faces clearly due to the sun. But, on the other side, it brings forth another beauty in the photo. To me, it gives the feeling of saying goodbye to one another, but not really knowing how to do it, so holding hands through the sunset is the only way to take farewell. It is hard to explain, but the sunset definitely did this picture good. Sure, it could have been better, but it could definitely have been worse too!

You did a great job.
Maybe you will be the one under the costume next time?
