Review: TVB Contracted Artistes Pictorial 2008 Part 2

*Sorry for the delays! So busy with Charmaine that I almost forgot about this. Don't feel comfortable leaving things undone so here is part 2!!

Review Part 2 focuses on male artistes. Also please take note again that my review is based on my own thoughts. Also I am not being biased on any particular artiste as I do not really have any dislikes among TVB artistes (same goes to female artistes). Enjoy the review and feel free to share your own thoughts and comments!

Note: If you missed part 1 please click
here to read it.


Top Picks : Actors

Sunny Chan : One word! Suave! Since watching "Just Love", Sunny gave me an impression that he has lost the "MAN" in him! In his older series Detective Investigation Files 4 etc. he was really manly. But after his comeback to TVB filming "Just Love" he became sort of a softer type of guy. But in this picture he has that manly look again. Besides tha angle of the shot looks great and the colour combination and his gaze made the picture perfect!

Michael Miu : Another one of my top picks! What I like is TVB did not put on a suit for Michael! The blue shirt and denim made him look very young and hides his age. Among all older TVB Male Artiste, Michael is the most stylish one where he brings out the "young at heart" feel. Besides, he also has a very modern hairstyle in the picture and the looking-through-the-window pose is pretty nicely done.

Kevin Cheng : This un-buttoned shirt and losely hanging necktie could make every little lady fan's heart jump a beat. Use that picture and imagine the scene, "You wake up one morning and saw none other than Kevin Cheng dressing exactly as he is in that picture sitting on your coffee table reading a newspaper, and as he noticed your presence, he looked up at you with that gaze!"...Haha....that is the power of that picture!

A Little Too Similar?

Don't this three picture look a little too similar? Especially the wardrobe! Well okay, Kenneth's shirt has sleeves....

Michael Tse : Overall it looks okay but the crossing of his hands make the picture look a little complicated. Also the lower part is a little too dark, add some brightness to the picture then it will look better. Also if Michael has more longer hair then it will definitely look better.

Lai Lok Yi : Overall a nice picture. Lai Lok Yi's pose and facial espression is good and makes him look cool. The hairstyle looks good too but the only flaw is the short sleeves of the white shirt he wore under the black vest which protudes out a little bothers me. The length of the sleeves exposed looks a little too short and made his outfit look undersized.

Kenneth Ma : Loose shirt and loosely hanging necktie but this gives an opposite feel to what Kevin Cheng's picture gave. This gaze and pose Kenneth placed would make the ladies scream and run the opposite direction! Kenneth does not suit sexy looking pose. Give him a smiley cheerful pose with decent clothes and I'm sure the picture will look much better.

I Know, I Look Gay

Moses Chan : Alright, what's with the tissue?? The espression on Moses and his pose made him look gay! Added holding the tissue made him look like a sissy guy sulking over a break-up! Totally different from the real life manly Moses. See what a picture can do! Also the pink shirt! Bad colour combination! His coat also looks oversized and sleeves are too crumpled. Compare the suit with Sunny's and you can see the difference.

Bosco Wong : Another gay-ish looking picture. The cause of this? That feather! Bosco's pose is great! Very manly pose but then the picture turned out making him look sissy! Why? Because of that feather! Take away the feather and the picture will look much nicer!

Bowie Lam : I just can't stop imagining two big round black ears everytime I look at this picture! Seriously, add that to Bowie's head and we get a hidden Mickey! Also let him wear white gloves and hold a magic wand for added effect!

Wong He : What's with Wong He nowadays? Really bad hairdo! His hair is too flat and made him look old! Also nothing special with the suit. Wong He really need a fashion consultant as his fashion sense turned haywire recently since the TVB 40th Anniversary Awards Presentation to the scruffy look at Singapore.

King Kong : "Huh? You're taking my picture?" That is how King Kong looked. He looked as if he did not gave any effort in posing for the picture and the picture looked as if it was tooked when he was in the midst of adjusting his clothes. Also he does not look like him in the picture....a bad one for an official pictorial. Only qualified for tabloid picture.

Jason Chan : What's with his hair? His hairdo looks weird. It's like making his head look big. Also the outfit...too much flower on the shirt. And nothing special of his pose. A very ordinary looking picture.

Joe Ma : Joe looked as if he's ready to jump on his victim...get what I mean? Haha. That espression and grin is scary! Also his scruffy looking hair and flowery shirt is such a no-no.

A little Wasted?

Aren't this guys famous for their muscular body?

Kenny Wong : Out of the three Kenny shows the most flesh. Kenny has one of the nicest body among non Mr Hong Kongs. But this picture does not show much, although it showed his muscular arm but the picture was cut-off halfway through his right arm and his watch is getting much more focus. If the watch is from sponsorers then the sponsorer will love this picture. Give Kenny Michael Tse or Chris Lai's pose. He'll do it better.

Matthew Ko : The picture focuses too much on Matthew's face. Tottally hid his body. His arm also does not look muscular and the picture made Matthew look small and petite. Unlike the real life tall Matthew.

Stephen Wong : Let loose a few more buttons and get a smaller size trousers then the picture would look perfect.

The Ones That Made It Through

Ray Cho : Overall a nice looking picture. The pose looks great and Ray looks charming and look no where near the 40's. If the coat he is gripping is shown a little more then it will look better and not make the picture look as if he is gripping a gunnysack.

Raymond Lam : Also a nice looking picture overall but the lower part of it is not pretty well done. I could not figure out the position of Raymond's legs!

Ron Ng : Ron's espression is well done but the shirt bothers me. Looks like a "mummy" because of the white fabric! Is Ron's hand covered by his shirt or is he wearing something like a glove? Also his shirt looked as if it has been over washed as it looks too lose especially at the sleeve.

Steven Ma, Patrick Tang, Roger Kwok : Not much to say about this three. Nothing special about the picture they are just acceptable to look at and all three looks kind of similar. Although Roger's espression looks a little weird. Looks like he is about to smile but then also not. Haha.

pictures credits to Kuangai TVB.

Ivy : Alright! Finally done with the reviews. Enjoy them and also no offense to fans of any of the artiste! They are just my thoughts and also some of the pictures of the artiste I criticized are actually my idol! I'm just trying my best not to be biased.

My fav have to be Kevin's. Which girl can resist that brooding, come hither look?

I actually like Bosco's pic, it's kind of unique. He's quite good in posing, if you compare his pictures in the pictorial (there will be at least 3 pose) with majority of the actors.

The ladies ones are sexy! Some very daring too.

Ivy said...

Haha...thanks for the feedback :) I love Kevin's too.

I feel Bosco had a good pose but the feather bothers me...lolz.
