What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

True, I’d have a hard time recognizing Huntress on the street. Neck up I mean, the fur bikini would be a dead giveaway. ...and maybe the crazy hair. These pieces have got to be crazy hard to sculpt. And then you have to contend with what people “imagined” the character to look like. Death Dealer’s face is mostly in shadow, all the detail had to be worked out. Still love the heck out of that one- thanks again for it, Ehren.

Sure you could print this at 1/4 scale... and some people might like it but it'll look totally out of place next to anything else in an average collection. Even the Barbarian and Death Dealer we more 'detailed' than this. But in the end it's not up to me. Level 52 will decide what they feel best suits the needs of the market.
Well considering you are an artist in your own right, my comments might appear to be foolish.

I will have to defer to those who are more knowledgeable on the subject.

We might be using the term 'detailed' in a different sense -- when I think of detail I think of the craft and time and consideration made to produce a piece of artwork, and consider a lack of detail to be a lack of thoughtfulness and caring.

But again, just an opinion of someone who has zero skill or talent in anything art related.

Regardless of any of that, this initial sculpt looks beatiful -- congratulations.

Just personally speaking at 1/4 scale I think this thing would look obnoxious. Plus.. it'll save you space and money. The other idea is that we would like to develop a line of these statues... If they are all 1/4 scale, people are gonna run out of money and space alot faster.
Well said. I think if the intent is to develop a line of of statues based on Frazetta's quick water color paintings ( a great idea!) then 1/6 scale makes a lot sense for the reasons you stated.

I am really looking forward to seeing this piece painted. Hopefully Level52 will reveal more sooner than later on this piece.

I would vote for 1/6, think that would be perfect.
