a great mystery by Arckaya a great mystery by Arckaya
Not really. It's obviously Alfie.

B&W is still hard, so I decided to avoid the issue a bit an not have a doll face in the frame.

Still not sure if I will submit this to #Resin-Aperture, because I get the feeling that if I had the right light, I might be able to get a very atmospheric portrait. That would be preferable to this anonymous nonsense.

Alfie('s body) is a nobility emotional body.

Ah, love black and white shots! And the hands too they are very tender here...
This is apathy in his pose..

Mmm I am really enjoying the level of detail in textures and the variations in value here~ It makes me want to try harder to get shots that are more like this! <3

For once, having him wear those maddening striped pants was useful! BJDs themselves are so smooth and untextured that you really have to look elsewhere for that value contrast.

Thanks so much. <3

This is a wonderful photo, somehow there is just so much emotion in it. Great job!

Thanks so much! I'm glad there's emotional content to it; I was afraid that it wasn't emotional because there's no face in the frame.
