Having relooked at the pic yeah she's definitely not riding it. The only point of contact is her knee and the flame is a good distance below and unattached everywhere else. It's not like she's Aladdin and it's a flame carpet...
itís true that both of them have flames. but I think the kinetiquettes version flows better with the pose whereas the HMO version is like a falling meteor (like someone said) that has nothing to do with the pose.

and yeah, sheís not riding it, but itís not coming from her body either like we used to see on her combo. hence, it disturbs the whole composition of the statue.

I personaly think itís better to substitute the flower petals to flames so it conveys the flame projection better and do something about the shape of the flame on the base.

I hear you but more flames may work better for a different statue. This ones portrait is so soft and beautiful like shes floating, I think the cherry blossoms go well with that. Along with all of the red and white, she almost screams "Japan!".
She most resemble a phoenix rising if you ask me. But we all can have our opinions and different interpretations.

I do love that Kinetiquettes pose, but after Morrigan I can't take a chance on missing out on Mai. Kinetiquettes flames almost draw away from Mai now that I think about it (but I'm definitely nitpicking)

The pose is generic and the face expressionless. They botched the first Mai and hurried to remake her. Its clear their morrigan was a one time hit. I hope she gets the amount of detail and quality everyone here say , but its kinda hard to see from only a digital render

Exactly my thought. Love the cherry blossoms, and love the overall elegance of the pose.
If done properly, I have no doubt this will be a masterpiece.

Thanks for repeating your last post word for word and trying to rain on people's parade.

For the other part, let's just see what happens. But I think you're being quick to judge and a bit off base.

No statue pleases everyone. I'm happy with it and excited to see progress over the coming year.

I agree and they all don't have to. But he posted the bold part almost word for word twice. Why do I need to hear it twice?

Yep, hmo, clearly wanted to "rush" to reveal the updated Mai and not give themselves enough time to be happy with it. Let's just state that as fact.

And obviously Morrigan will be only a one hit wonder from them....

I don't know why, but at the end every HMO girl failed to excite me.
May be the next one.
Speaking of " next", what could the next step be: hey guys, we scratched a drawing of our next statue on a piece of paper, please support us and PO our statue!
For the moment, I don't know what to think about the " digital picture pre-ordering"... Laziness, pride, lack of confidence, what else?
