    Thanks for sharing these pictures with us.
    Is it possible to shoot a closeup Photo from Arwens and Frodos face?

      Nice One Celaglar !!!
      Deep within the rock, they buried him. In a tomb so dark, it would never come to light

        Thank you Celaglar.

        Don`t know what it is what bothers me about Arwen's face.Perhaps I have to look at the Statue in hand.

              That comforts me, I'm terrible with attaching things

                I didn't know you could pause an order. I cancelled my Isildur order because of that

                  I didn't know either. It makes sense I guess, if you're not on a payment plan that is.

                    Great pictures Celaglar. Even if the light is a bit harsh. The whole statue looks like a winner. How did you find the water effects in person?

                      You should. Looking at my own pictures I don’t like the face either, but in real life she is beautiful.

                      No I did not use flash light. However, there is a led strip above her head. Because I took a close up of her face, all the light reflects. Normally you look at here a bit more from above so you don’t have that problem.

                      Me too, especially with these delicate pieces. Cloth flying around. An action piece can look great, but usually is terrible to handel.

                        So great to see these first pictures. And I do like the news there aren't that many separate pieces

                          I didn't know that either. Cancelled Eomer for that reason. When Anika mailed me this solution it sounded perfect. Not sure how long you can pause an order though, but a few weeks wasn't a problem.

                          Here's hoping I'll receive a shipping notification soon. It was paid yesterday morning, but still nothing. Ah, well, no rush, but just very anxious, especially after these photos!

                          Edit: just heard that my order is now being send to the eu warehouse. Aren’t they already there? Considering people are already receiving theirs?

                            I'm very very happy to read that!

                            Not that I was ever worried about the likeness because, well, this is Jane Wenley we're talking about.

                            Thanks, but it will be a bit longer before I have mine. I had to order from a retailer (for budgetary reasons ) so won't be getting it till March. The wait will not be easy!

                            Strange indeed. You and Celaglar are both in the Netherlands. The only thing I can think of is that the pausing/unpausing you requested has caused the delay somehow. You'll still have it before the weekend by the sound of it though.

                              Love the piece...but the faces need detailing just like thranduil needed...Isildur was the perfect example of face detailing...and shouldn't frodo be the paler one from that scene

                                Celaglar, you got to be careful with having your girlfriend sending you porn at work. What if the boss found out!

                                Looks fantastic in your display case. I'm thinking that this is another face that is not going to be captured well in photos. I'm sure she looks wonderful in person. Congrats!

                                  Celaglar , your girlfriend sure knows how to get your attention!!

                                  Thanks for adding the pictures so quickly. As well as answering everyone's questions and including more pictures when asked for.

                                  The statue looks amazing! Your display case looks fantastic. Beautifully set up. Congrats on being the first one to put up pictures of Arwen and Frodo on Asfaloth.

                                    Celaglar, those are some glorious progression photos, our compliments to the taker! Arwen looks ever so good.

                                      I haven’t seen Thranduil, but I don’t think Arwen really needs adjusting. However, I thought of why she looks off. The statue has a lovely face, she looks sweet. However, in the movie she looks angry and fierce. I think that is why people think she does not have a good likeness. Can imagine if you work on her she would look even better!

                                      Thanks. Yes, the light makes it difficult to photograph. I think the boss wouldn’t mind those pictures, but will probably ask questions when I am googling for Young looking girl with midget on a horse…

                                      Thanks. My girlfriend actually had another surprise when I got home from work… I first needed to go to the vet with our rabbits Kili and Kiwi. Only afterwards I was able to unpack. Glad to still be the first.

                                        Before the men of the forum get to 'enjoy' derailing this thread in their own way, I hope that Kili and Kiwi are fine and that it was just a regular check up and inoculations.
