Vocaloid Miku Hatsune VN02 Mix by Max Factory

It’s been raining all week and there’s nothing much to do so I took Miku Hatsune VN02 Mix out for indoor photoshoot.  Besides, I should start stockpiling for GSC’s figure photo contest and practice scale figure shoots. IMG_1770 This is my first Miku Scale figure in my collection. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of Vocaloids, I’m not even updated what song they have released etc. There’s just something about Miku that captures me.

Here’s another set of photos. Enjoy!




IMG_1760 I am getting a lot of question if I do photoshop work in my photos. I wish I have the talent and skill in Photoshop though.  On this set, I only used Adobe Lightroom for mild post process (lighting/exposure adjustment). Everything else are just my lighting set up and backdrop. Thank you everyone for checking out! See you on my next post. ^^

    how many pictures do you intend to submit to the contest? I can’t decide which one to submit XD
    Thats a really cool high tech design, too bad theres no anime with this figure.
    picture 2,3 and 4 are my favorites, since the lighting of her face is the best there.

      I only have few GSC scale figures to photograph and with the bad weather in the country I could only rely to indoor photo shoots. You have so many wonderful figure photos, I can understand why you can’t decide which to submit. 😛 But we can send in multiple entries, so send pictures away because the Grand Prize is just WOW. >_<

      I tried to submit my first entry, and I was wondering if it was successful because it stops at Confirming Submission page and there's no button to continue only "Back to Previous Page". @_@

        Ah good luck for you nevertheless. I mainly have Max Factory not GSC, but they say it’s ok with closer companies.
        You say I shouldn’t feel bad when sending in like 5 pictures? Ahaha I don’t know.

        Ah you should have received an email, maybe it ended in the spam.

    2. sheng says:

      Oh no, i didn’t get any email. No spam either. Oh no.. Thanks for the heads up.

      Good luck to all of us! ^_^

        Oh then you unfortunately have to repeat it,
        I tried it two times and it worked without fail 🙂

        A good friend taught me a weird trick, that I had to leave a blank field at first then Click back to previous button when I get to Confirming submission page and then type it in and the Submit Entry button will appear. Must be because of my browser. I don’t know. 😀 I’m glad I have submitted my first entry! Way to go. Let’s submit more hehe. 😛

    Ah this one’s a classic. I always appreciate the Miku designs that really look different. This one has a dynamic pose and those floating… things… at her sides. Looks like she’s rushing away from some kind of chaos in your photos!

    I’m thinking about entering the GSC contest as I have a few eligible figures, but so far I don’t really have any creative ideas. I’m pretty sure I used up all my creativity earlier in the year…

      The only thing I disapprove in this figure is the size of her breast in front view shot.. Must be because of the pose. But when in side view it looks perfect.

      The deadline is on July 7, you still have 2 weeks to get in the right mood and get those creative juices working. 😉

      1. Tian says:

        Hadn’t noticed her breast size… can’t unsee it now…

    These are beautiful shots, it really looks like she is running fast and about to attack whatever is ahead of her! When I heard about the GSC contest on Facebook I instantly thought you must enter since your photos are amazing. You really capture such beauty to them. I can’t enter as I don’t have a full scale figure.. But like you I have never got into Vocaloid, though a lot of them are beautiful. The facial features of this figure is truly stunning and adds to the atmosphere of the photo. Good luck ^_^

    1. sheng says:

      Thank you for the thoughts and nice words Sabine. I feel motivated to start working for my next entry. ^_^
      I usually like mature faces in Miku figures.. Most of the time it’s an instant-buy for me. Oh, you’ve got to try scale figures too, many of them are beautiful. 🙂

      1. Sabine says:

        You’re very welcome Sheng ^_^
        I’m looking forward to seeing your next entry! And many others as well, everyone is so creative with these figures! I have had my eyes set on a number of full-scales for a while now, it’s just finding the money for them. But hope to one day own one at least!

    Sheng, that background you made is fantastic – especially the color & lighting play. It’s a most excellent composition. Hats off to you & best wishes on whichever ones you submit. : D

      Thank you very much for the kinds words, and for following me in twitter. I saw your reply in my post. >_<

      Aren't you joining the contest?

    Brilliant photos! the background really complements the figure, makes it look like Miku is in motion, Cool effect. Good luck in the GSC Photo contest~!

      I think led lights helped me get that cool and smooth lighting.
      I am glad you enjoyed this set of photos. ^_^
