Picture of the Day!

By Animaven on November 11, 2013

"Gintama" has a pretty stout fan following, so it's no surprise that we'd find something beautiful to post from the series. Tonka is the mastermind behind this piece.

When they first announced this figure I knew we'd get some super cute pictures of Miku, and here's a prime example. This picture is via DeBroglie

A rainy day and a happy encounter make pinkcheek's picture sweet and a little bit of a wink, and that's why it's our picture of the day. Get yourself an eyeful and wish they'd make an anime like this.

I like to think that in Garuda_blade's picture, Kirito is re-enacting his favorite Breaking Bad scene. Yes?

Today's picture of the day is from a show near and dear to me - K-On! This picture is really lovely, and the collage look adds to the motion and the action. Also? It's a testament to the power of backdrops. This one is by jena.

Happy Halloween!

By Animaven on October 31, 2013

I don't know about you guys, but I love Halloween. It is my birthday, so I'm kind of biased, but still. Have some art! And don't forget to stuff yourself full of candy. Or booze. Whatever you like.

There's just something about that Insane Black Rock Shooter design that inspires awe. When it's that Good Smile scaled statue, well, there's not a whole lot to say other than, "Ooo, shiny!" 

This bit of shiny is via Rayun.

That Link figma is the gift that keeps on giving, isn’t it? Pair it up with “Jason and the Argonauts” revoltech skeletons and you’ve got a creepy, Halloween-ready picture from Gildartz. Enjoy.

"Railgun" fans are well familiar with the badassery of Biri Biri, but _Mugi took a different approach with this little bit of gorgeous photography and showed us a prettier side of Kuroko Shirai. Feast your eyes:

Are you going to travel to Japan (or any major city in the US, really), want to have conveyer belt sushi but don't know the etiquette? This infographic will tell you everything you need to know (including take the plate with the sushi, which you would think is common sense but oh well). 

Have a look and see if you learn anything new.

For today's Picture of the Day we've got Link on a quest, and between the lighting and the use of fire, Rubee really has the kind of figure photography we all aspire to. Have a look, and then go on a pot-smashing bonanza.

I'm kind of excited Kuroko's Basketball is back, and not just because it's one of the shows I watch; there's a lot of fan awesome around the show, and some spectacular, Herculean-level douchebaggery that goes along with it: the Kuroko's terrorist. No, that is not an exaggeration. There is actually a guy out there who claims to be poisoning merch or leaving deadly chemicals at events focusing on KB.

There have been a lot of beautiful pictures this week/month, and since it's a lazy Sunday evening kick back, relax, and feast your eyes on some lovelies.

I love figure photography when it's art, but I also love it when it's a little goofy. This one, by Coffee, ranks on the goofy side - which is why it's awesome.

Okay, so today’s Picture of the Day might just be an excuse for me to post another picture of Max Factory’s Hacker. Because seriously, what an amazing friggin’ figure.

Miku’s warmth and beauty has long mad her a fan favorite, but in neomirager’s picture, you get a whole different glimpse at that warmth - it’s a little sexier, and a lot inviting.

Natsume can get kind of moody and introspective - after all, he's had a rough go of it. This picture, shot by tonka, captures a lot of the sweet melancholy that makes Natsume's Book of Friends such a good watch.

This picture has been making the rounds of the internet, going so far as to get recognized by Good Smile Company on their website. It's worth highlighting again, though, because it really is a beautiful example of how amazing our hobby is. At first glance, this picture looks like it's a real girl, and that's the craftmanship of GSC at work. There's nobody like them. But the photography itself is partially responsible for the trickery, and that's all skill.

If you're like me, you love time travel harem show Steins;Gate. If you're not like me, what the hell is wrong with you? That show was amazing, not to mention the concept art was done by Huke, the genuis behind Black Rock Shooter. And where there's artwork by Huke, there are bound to be beautiful figures.
