Here is a colored version of my sculpt of the face


You can see other angles of the face sculpt here:

Wow...I have never seen a more perfect 3D rendition of Schierke's appearance since the ps2 game models. Phenomenal job, I'm looking forward to how it all looks in the end! You are so incredibly talented  :ubik:

Berserk Anime / Re: 2017 Berserk TV Series (Season 2)

The main problem is that 12 episodes, 20 minutes each, to wrap up the entire story from the Hill of the Swords to the battle at Flora's mansion are just too few, no matter how you look at it, there is just not enough screen time to cover up everything.

Actually...they're planning to go even further than the battle at Flora's mansion with 13 episodes. Guts is supposed to get the Berserker armor in episode 9 according to episode titles that were already released. So there's 3-4 episodes more after Guts and his crew escape from Grunbeld and the other Neo Battle of the Hawk apostles. I'm speculating that the anime will end after Griffith rescues Charlotte from Ganishka in Windham and when Guts meets Skullknight at the beach and learns that it may be possible to bring Casca back. It would be a fitting scene to end at...but I'm not sure what to expect with this rushed adaptation.

I don't know why people are complaining. I liked episode 13. Just look at the manga they did a great job to translate it to this episode. They skipped almost nothing. So why this critics. Just don't watch if you don't like the style. Yes the old berserk was great but as berserk fan appreciate that we have an anime of this best manga ever.
So we shouldn't complain that the "best manga ever" is getting a rushed and amateur-looking adaptation? Sounds fair.
This second cour isn't a panel-to-panel adaptation.
In episode 13 and 14 they skipped Griffith's, Zodd's, Locus's, and Grunbeld's infiltration of Shet, and instead just cut from Griffith's entrance to the CGI bird flying 200 miles/hour back to Schierke. That scene was important because it introduced the might of Griffith's Neo Band of the Hawk Commanders and also introduced Rakshas to open up a whole new story arc for the series. Unless, they plan on including this scene in the next episode with Mule meeting them, which I doubt. They also skipped a bit of scenes between Guts and Casca before Guts assaults her.
Let's make this clear. They want to speed through the majority of the Falcon of the Millennium Empire arc in 13 episodes. We're talking about 13 volumes of content, and so far they've "covered" the entire volume 22 and half of 23 in 2 episodes.
The pacing is way too fast, which numbs the crucial moments. The content covered in the first episode was crucial to the story overall and shouldn't be sped through only to reach cute 2D-drawn Sonia and adorable 2D-drawn Farnese and Serpico's backstory. Guts's fight with Zodd at the Hill of Swords looked like a minor fight and just overall the Hill of Swords scene was lackluster because it's supposed to be a hugely defining moment for the series. It's Guts talking to (reincarnated) Griffith since the Eclipse for heaven's sake! Not to mention Zodd's vomit-inducing CG model.
I could go on and on about the story, but I do feel like they're improving art and direction-wise. For example, it was actually nice to see Serpico and Farnese's backstory animated all in 2D. Also, they fixed Guts's face, and although the 3D models barely have any details or texture on them, it makes watching scenes with Guts much more bearable.

Meh, wasn't very impressed with how he turned out, for the price. Something about the faces and proportions feels off to me, and the base is just overflowing with randomly inserted elements, so it's a pass for me.
Also I hate to be that person but...if we're talking about a perfect Guts statue, please get his brows right  :carcus:

Berserk Anime / Re: New Berserk Anime for 2016

The S02 board is currently locked but my question is more about S01 anyway. ANN features the Japanese anime sales charts each week, sourced from Oricon. I never Berserk 2016 on them and typing out ベルセルク aka. Berserk on Oricon itself only gives me all the possible discs to buy. Does anyone know the sales figures? Thanks in advance.
(A show is usually seen as a hit with sales over 10k, if the budget wasn´t out of proportion, but approaching that number is good too.)
According to someanithing.com, it sold 803 copies: http://www.someanithing.com/5724/comment-page-1#comment-76309
I'm not sure if this was for the first or second BD box set for season 1, but in any case it sold horribly  :ubik:

Amazing job Theoden! :ubik:

I would be interested. I've seen your previous GK sculpts and I've been thoroughly impressed with your work.

I think it's a terrific idea, since pretty much the face sculpt and hair were the only gripes I had with the Threezero figure (and ultimately kept me from buying it). Your head sculpts look incredible and I personally would love to see/have painted ones.
