First off, I just want to say that all my photos are now available under an Attribution Non-Commerical ShareAlike Creative Commons License. What that means is, everyone is free to take my photographs and do things with them. Want to display them? Cool. Want to draw mustaches over the character's faces? Awesome. Want to sell my photos? Ain't happening. All I ask is to be credited with a link back to this blog. You can read a better description of what this Creative Commons License means here.

Now that all the formal stuff is finished, Lightbox Fest '08 continues unabated! After a trip to Quake Collectables here in Chicago, we came home one Yoshimitsu heavier than when we left. FUN FACT: April and I have a heated rivalry when it comes to Tekken. She thinks her cheap-assed, drunken boxing, Jackie Chan-wannabe, Lei Wulong has a chance against the virtuous Champion of Good, King. I let her win the occasional game, of course, but she takes it as an opportunity to smear my good name with her trash talk. And boy can she talk some trash.

One of the things I noticed about Tekken 5 was not only how gorgeous it is, but the soft glow that everything seems to have. It makes for a great gaming experience, but, after seeing other games pick up on it (I'm looking at you Halo), it starts to get ridiculous. While shooting Yoshimitsu, I wanted to try and recreate the Tekken 5 glow, but see if I could push the boundaries of ridiculous.

Setup for today was, well, why don't I just show you? Look ma, no stove!
