How can a human head NOT match the "style" of a human body. This design concept is leaps and bounds above the efforts of Sideshow.

Which casts a question on the competence of the Sideshow Art director to approve the two offerings from Sideshow.

While this design might not meet your personal approval, I think we can agree that it's better than what we got.

I stick by my opinion.
I expect a different expression for that body. While it looks Asian, it doesn't really resemble how I picture Psylocke. Or how she would look in a fighting stance.

I wasn't comparing it, or sticking up for the portrait that was produced. I didn't say Sideshow's was better. My opinion on that in previous posts was the opposite.

Merely expressing my own opinion which is what we all do here. Not really sure why you critiqued my post.

I agree it doesn't match, (in some nuanced way). Perhaps the expression and hair. "Style" is the right word here since both statue and head are designed.
Of course no offense to the artist, it is well done and still said to be a sketch.

Not really critiquing your post, I genuinely didn't understand the use of the word "style" in this context (which you've clarified above).

I don't think the artist was trying to redesign the sculpt in it's entirety, I think they were simply demonstrating how the portrait could / should have been done from the perspective of realistic Asian features. They stated it was a "quick sketch".....

I agree, the ethnicity is definitely there, which is great. I like it way more than the SS.

Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
Never trade you for anybody else
Singin' brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'
She said she really grew up poor like me
Don't believe in nothin' but the Almighty
Just a likkle jeans and a pure white tee
She never did forever be nobody wifey, yeah
So while I may not pretty boy, your heart is amiss
Play it like a villain 'cause she caught in a wave
Tonight I am walkin' away
9 to 5 mind, on the grind, yeah, yeah
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing inna di world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Pose like a trophy when Naomis walk in
She need an Oscar for that pretty dark skin
Pretty like Lupita when the cameras close in
Drip broke the levee when my Kellys roll in
I think tonight she might braid her braids
Melanin too dark to throw her shade
She minds her business and wines her waist
Gold like 24k, okay
Tonight I might fall in love, dependin' on how you hold me
I'm glad that I'm calmin' down, can't let no one come control me
Keep dancin' and call it love, she fightin' but fallin' slowly
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told me
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
Your back against the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl, ya skin just like pearls
The best thing inna di (about the) world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Oh, have you looked in the mirror lately? (lately)
Wish you could trade eyes with me ('cause)
There's complexities in complexion
But your skin, it glow like diamonds
Dig me like the earth, you be giving birth
Took everything in life, baby, know your worth
I love everything about you, from your nappy curls
To every single curve, your body natural
Same skin that was broken be the same skin takin' over
Most things out of focus, view
But when you're in the room, they notice you (notice you)
'Cause you're beautiful
Yeah, you're beautiful
The men dem gon' fall in love
With you and all of your glory
Your skin is not only dark, it shines and it tells your story
Keep dancin', they can't control you
They watchin', they all adore you
If ever you are in doubt, remember what mama told you
Brown skin girl (brown skin girl)
Ya skin just like pearls (brown skin girl)
Your back against the world (oh)
I never trade you for anybody else, say (no, no)
Brown skin girl (brown skin girl)
Ya skin just like pearls (brown skin)
The best thing in all the world
I never trade you for anybody else, say
Brown skin girl
Your skin just like pearls
The best thing in the world
I never trade you for anybody else, singin'

I don't know which was the greater waste of my life force energy; reading the two posts above, OR trying to understand their relevance in the context of the thread.....
