    • @ Vicksken - @ Radagast Thank you.Glad you like the pics




      Yesterday I received my long awaited Thranduil on Elk Statue.and unboxed him later that day in the evening.

      Light wasn`t very good in the room and after looking at the Statue I was a little disappointed about some paintflaws...

      I thought,it were Paintflaws,but after comparison with the Photos of the Proto and the Photos on the Weta Website I saw that there

      were the same supposed flaws.

      Perhaps I was a little biased from the negative posts about Thranduil in the ToE Thread.

      O.K. - Today morning - Daylight - Sunshine - Blue Heaven.
      I looked at the statue again and my negative opinion about the Paintjob turned to the opposite.

      This Statue definitely needs Light to show all its glory.Change light and you change the whole appearance of the Statue.

      Here and there I saw some wrong Brushstrokes - easy to correct, but all in all not necessary.(at least at my Statue).
      Some places seem to be a little too glossy.Especially the Elk legs.

      All in all I`m very happy with the Statue. I like Thranduils Face expression.
      Will only correct some small places on the Elk (as perhaps the hoofes).

      Took the chance (good weather) and shoot a lot of Photos outside which I like to share with you now.

      First pictures by daylight (11.00am) and last pictures at less daylight (8.00pm)

      Hope you like them.















































































































































      Next Pictures are made by less daylight.(different lightning)

                Thank you AmberDwarf. I think there is no ToE out there who is perfect. I had the luck to get one with "not so much" paintflaws.But although thinking of doing the one or other brushstroke on the Statue.

                That`s right.Light can change the whole character of a photo.

                  • Amazing pictures of your ToE Orc from Morc. The surrounding and light and shadow effects that were created are just perfect for the Irish Elk and his 'master'.

                    It is really hard to choose a favorite from all your over the top photos, but some how this one just caught me in a trance and to move past it was next to impossible.



                    As always very well done Orc from Morc.

                      Thank you very much. Meanwhile I`ve corrected some places on the Elk to my taste.
                      He`s more darker now (head,legs ...) and less glossy. Especially the colors of Thranduils cape seemed to be washed out in the upper part.
                      Horns are painted dark now at the place where they come out the head.

                            Thank you both very much.

                            As I wrote before I have made a little repaint of the ToE to my taste.

                            Did work on Head/Body of the Elk - The Horns - Cape of Thranduil - Base (Rocks) - and so on.

                            I still have to do the one or other brushstroke...

                            Here are a few pics.

                                  The touch up of your Thranduil on Elk is really nice too.

                                        Thanks Achilles.
                                        I take pictures under cover,so no one in the neighborhood can see what I`m doing.

                                        Are not all collectors "a little bit" crazy?
                                        One more, the other less!
