    Re: Diary of a workbench

    Fantastic work so far, really loving the pose and sculpting so far, one question though, what are your plans for the head? Will he be getting some kind of nifty lion helm (perhaps like the lion helm in gladiator but without the face plate and a mane a bit like the silver helm champion style?) or will it be a free flowing hair and tiara affair?

    Will be checking back regularly!

    Keep up the good work,

    Cheers,

    Dante

    Korhil is my favourite mini from the new HE range. Yours is equally good. Consider me subscribed.

    Re: Diary of a workbench

    The sculpt is awesome , but IMHO the lion's paw is a bit, I don't know, it seems rushed... (I mean the bottom part, the top is stunning as the rest) and maybe the hairy part of the pelt is too long.

    Bear in mind that this comes from someone who has the sculpting skills of a 3 years old, so you're authorized to ignore this comment .

    Marvellous job and terrific sculpting skills BTW,

    Re: Diary of a workbench

    The more i look at it, i do agree with Toschenki on this... the last picture, where you can see the underneath of the paw doesnt look as polished as the rest, by your own very high standards...

    Still incredible sculpting overall though...

    Geo, good to see you here. Ive long been an admirer of your work.

    This one is no exception - IMO this is how the new Korhil madel should have looked-dynamic, strong and majestic.

    I do have to agree with the other posters on the underneath of the lions claw though - it just doesnt look like a paw.

    Anyway, keep up the good work!

    Re: Diary of a workbench

    I noticed one thing witht he pad that the above people commented, and that is that you've made the pads as small "holes" and a line while in fact, the pads should be convex (The words won't come to me at ths time of the day, but hopefully you'll get my meaning anyway).

    I don't know if it is possible or even desirable to fix this but I thought I'd point it out.

    Otherwise it's an amazing sculpt you've got there!

    Re: Diary of a workbench

    It's absolutely lovely!

    I would do something about the haft+fingers, though (if I could sculpt at this magnitude, that is). As it is, the 'grip'-material (strips of leather?) seems to have a great deal of give in it, or else it wouldn't accommodate fingers of any thickness. This seems impractical (recipe for slipping), therefore I would welcome a thinning of the haft's grip material to make the fingers stand out more; or make the grip material fur (which can be fluffy while still tight).

    Also, some work on the fingers (since they are up in the beholder's eyes, so to speak) would be good.

    Overall, two big thumbs up!

    Re: Diary of a workbench

    @ crube,
    Am I pleased, hmm difficult questio, yes and no.
    First time since some time I have the ffeling again having made a wonderful miniature. But also a lot of things arnīt as good as they could be. There could be a lot of things optimized but I wouldnīt spend more than two weeks into the conversion and decieded to live with less quality and make it better with the next miniature. So in the end there are a lot of things which are good, but also a lot of things I donīt like. Most important is that i have realized my vision of this miniature and I really like it. Now itīs time to give it a really good paintjob which it deserves.

    @ Toschenko,
    how said there are a lot of things which arnīt perfect. For sure the pawn could be better. Here I used my manticor as reference which has a similar paw... the convex part is made as "hole" for shure less than I have done here...

    @ BattleofLund
    the problem is I need them to fix the parts und link them togehter...

    Thanks all for their comments and tehir interest ind this miniature,

    Regards GeOrc

    this is really really good, i mean the overall thing is 10/10 in my mind. One thing that i see is what Toschenko said about the paw is really the only thing which is great.

    Fantastic stuff GeOrc, well done indeed

    Braided hair is something I always associate with Wood Elves more than High Elves, but it doesn't look out of place there at all.

    Will we be seeing him painted up any time? Because I'm never happy :P

    Yeah, me too. Like... less civilized? Or less urbanized? Fits with White Lions being outdoorsy types, anyway.

    GeOrc: how about making the hands (fingers, really) just a smidgen thicker? For example, half a millimetre? Bit of balancing there, since the hands now look proportionate to the rest of the Elf - but not to the 'heroic' haft. (IMO).

    It looks top notch. I'll ask again, because my earlier question got lost in the sea of praise for this incredible sculp

    How did you sculpt the decorative lions on his armour? Any particular tools?

    Congrats on an amazing model.
