Creation Station / Re: Lith's colors & tutorials

My color sense is still really pretty weak, I started out with everything kinda candy color and just kept remixing it until it didn't hurt my eyes, and then tried to get the Team a little more saturated than the rest.  Then overall color washes/adjustments to make it hang together properly.

 :ganishka: It's good to know that our methods of coloring aren't so different!

Thanks!  It took me forever yeah I kept changing my mind about stuff, and I was only working on it while I was playing D&D.  The big looming guys with hats are my faves I think.

One of many things I do love about this color is how you can better make out all of the creatures drawn for this single spread. It's a little overwhelming (in a good way) in black and white, but seeing it all in color is just great. I have the feeling that a lot of people, including myself, might be changing their wallpapers!

[...]

Apostles,
Impostors,
Foul whores and putrid posers,
It's time you greet the Dragonslayer.

Like a hellraiser,
Monster of rage,
Unleash the fury through your sword of hate,
Destroy and murder,
Retaliate,
Harness the power of the beast.. in black

[...]


Yeah it feels like they wear their influences on their sleeves. :ganishka: I like their sound, and while it's not my favorite interpretation of power metal I'm still gonna keep an eye out for their future work.

They have another song out called " Blind and Frozen ", I like it better, however they have not written the lyrics around Berserk. give it a listen if you wanna hear more from them.

Ended up ordering the P1 Berserker Armor statue today. I couldn't resist after losing out on the AOW Berserker Armor and pirate ship statue. The scale of the statue, plus Direct UK's video from August clinched it for me.

I will probably end up getting the exclusive version of the F4F Black Swordsman with souls base.

Unless they come out with a kick ass Rakshas figure, that should finish off my Berserk Guts collection: 1.) Guts on horseback from golden age, 2.) Black Swordsman and 3.) Berserker Armor.

I'm talking about the people (me included) who are complaining since many years about Art of War sculpts and their accuracy.
Now we are seeing the results with Prime 1 and there are still some problems of accuracy.
But many people think it's accurate and it's ok, so what should I had ?
Headlong (he is a sculptor, not a company) did some better sculpts with his hands 12 years ago than Prime 1 did with their 3D sculpts recently.



I didn't know headlong is just one sculptor (or a group), thanks for the clarification. I came to Berserk just about 2 years ago, not since day one and IMO it's awesome that Berserk gets so much hype now and other companies also do good stuff. I would never say P1 is 100 % Manga accurate cause they aren't but IMO it's harsh to say they look like shit. As for AoW IMO you can say it cause some aren't accurate and they also look realy ugly, only a few I would say are ok (sculpt,accuracy,paint ...). I'm far away from being a Fanboy, I hate if someone tries to run another one down just because he loves his own company etc. So it's ok to say "I don't like it, it's not accurate" but IMO you can say it without to badmouth the whole statue. 

Edit: this is just an in general post, not against you. There is so much hate lately about who's the better company etc (especially the P1 Vs F4F case), it's just tiring. We should be all glad that we got so much stuff lately.

"...that people wants something accurate to the original material".

Many people think it's accurate, so do I. Of course it's not a 100 % manga look and yes there is a personal touch to it but that's all I need. Just one piece is  21421221x better than the shitty looking art of war line which looks as sculpted right out of Femto's ass. But some in here are the opinion it's more accurate then the P1 line or the F4F's one, oh yeah. They are Fans of Berserk from day 1 but think it's accurate, really? The only company that really tried to be accurate besides P1 and F4F is Headlong IMO, they are definitely better than AoW but also they are just a few and most of them are just in 1/8++.

If you'll take the Black Swordsman of P1, Yes it's not the face which Guts has in the BS arc. But the face defenitely reminds me of later Arcs we see. https://imgur.com/a/e3GWY

If you say so...

I mean.. Shouldn't they create what they want to do? You're not forced to buy it, and if you want a more exact transition from 2D to 3D then you could always go with First4figures, GECCO, Art of War, Headlong, Max Factory, probably Tsume once they start pumping out some pieces or numerous unlicensed products. Saying that something is ugly is perfectly fine mate, more power to you (maybe a bit rude to people who actually like it, but you're not obligated to cater to our feelings), but don't speak for the majority of the fan- / customer base as if your opinion reflects theirs. In the end Black Swordsman Guts has sold very well and their Berserker flew off their shelves. :iva: Don't know how well Zodd has done so far, but obviously not as good as the other two.

Sure, they can release what they want. I'm just saying that I'm not pleased with what I'm seeing, if you're happy with their works, good for you.
I know I won't spend money on something that is not accurate.

I noticed that a good few recent teasers have not been posted here, so here you go!

Femto.




Slan.
   

Zodd, physical print (potentially going to be LED's in his eyes).

@Zurth: I also made the experience in the past that some members in here have a very radical opinion of accuracy, I think you could explain them in the smoothest way what P1 intention is for their pieces and they even would not understand (or just don't want to). It's ok to have his own opinion but IMO it hasn't to be this way...

I do! It really looks amazing, the size and the level of detail are impressive. Thanks for sharing these pictures. ;)

Nice to hear, and no problems of course.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes, thanks for sharing those pictures.

No problems ma..

Now we can have a closer look at how they've fucked up Guts headsculpts and Zodd face.

Oh. :sad:

[...] They don't understand (or care) that people wants something accurate to the original material, and not their own take on the characters.

But I imagine that's P1 "realistic" touch...

Yeah, you said it best yourself, and what is wrong with that?
