stair affair by Arckaya stair affair by Arckaya
I take way too many photos in an around this staircase. But damn, the place has good light in the afternoons. I think I'll eventually tire of the backlit hair gimmick, but for now I'm enjoying it.

I like my yellows and purples, kthx.


Alfie is a migidoll ryu.

To be quite honest I just love everything about this photo :D

Hey! I saw this on DoA~
I like this photo a lot! That is some beautiful lighting right there. I also like how the stairs get lighter near the top, almost like a gradient. Although Alfie makes the stairs look really large, haha. They remind me a little of a pyramid this way.

And the dollie is pretty too, of course~ I admire Alfie's hair. The way his right hand is hanging down looks very natural as well.

Thanks so much! I can see why it looks like a pyramid for sure. And I love these stairs for the light. They're actually pretty ugly stairs, but they work well for the dollies. XD

You're welcome~ 8D
Out of curiousity, where do those stairs lead to anyway? XD

They actually go down to my basement. XD So they don't lead up at all, as one might expect.

I will agree with the others this has very fine lighting and it really makes the piece stand out. The character is wonderful too!

I'm not the only one who feels the need to abbreviate Alfie's name even though it's only two syllables long? ALF indeed!

Alfie likes hair light except when it makes him look bald.

Hahahaha. Well aren't we just two peas in a pod...

It's okay, Alf. You're still darling, even bald. Not that you particularly want to hear me call you darling. Too bad.

Alfie's just awkward around most of the fair sex, so don't feel too bad about it! In modern day he would be that really geeky kid who gets girl crushes but never has the daring to ask them out. He is inexplicably well dressed for geekdom, though...D:

Aw, thanks! His wrists aren't very flexible, but I wish I could have posed his other hand better.

The thing is, this staircase is actually not very pretty at all. I must show it to you sometime.

But you are in MEXICOOOO. I hope you're using the subjunctive as much as possible! Because clearly that is what one does when on vacation.

I am serious, mostly because I make the terrible decision of taking AP Spanish this year and I actually can kind of understand the language now. It undid two years of Ms. Palma.

Ah, I haven't taken any language classes since i left WHS, which is quite sad, but I just can't fit them into my schedule. My classes already go to 5 or 6 on any given day

more geometric shapes, woooo!

(i love backlit hair >.> especially curly, messy hair, so alfie wins all around this time XD)

Arckaya Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2010
Yes, but these geometric shapes aren't as ~complex~. There are only repeating rectangles, and I think the other one had like, a trapezoid? XD

Alfie's hair is really wispy, so this works out pretty well. Thanks. ^^
