We covered the images of the resin masters of this great looking offering from Thomas David’s company, Agora Miniatures.
But now it’s been painted!
The paint job looks good. Just wish the right arm was normal not that fat Hellboy thing.
You know not to be a downer or anything but ya gotta wonder . . .Do these sculptors not know what a real woman looks like? Last time I saw that much skin I was watchin Playboy channel. Just sayin . .
Got to remember a combo of gamer, nurd and designer/sculptor locked in a studio trying to hit deadlines is not a good one where actual experience of the female form is concerned.
Women only exist, therefore, in the sculptor’s tired and caffeine befuddled memory and influenced by anime/video game graphics, which itself suffers from the same problem. It becomes a viscious feedback loop of adolescent fantasy.
To be fair I thought this figure was a deliberate anime style. Very long legs and turquoise hair in braids and a sword the size of Japan are typical. Otherwise I have to agree that a spell in the life room would not go amiss. Would be good to get my own eye in with some life drawing and no that is not a euphemism lol!
Yes it 100% anime style, and thats not bad. It looks like most anime looks like, big boobs, long legs and a sword heavier than her. Looks nice if thats what your looking for.
i like it nice model
@katman and @chibi – I was so relieved when I scrolled down and read your comments! I looked at the sculpt and thought almost the same thing (well, what I actually thought was probably more along the lines of ‘dear god! They’re making minis to appeal to the lowest teenage male denominator’). You phrased it better than I could though with a nice sprinkling of humour – thank you, I thought I was turning into a prude
I’m feeling bad now.. I’ve got to admit, my first reaction was ‘nice sword’.. didn’t even register the lack of clothes
