Delinda, Sculpture + Reference by *ArtyAMG The suggester says: "Not only has this hobbyist sculpted this character from a sketch but he did it as a prize for one of his watchers! He has improved his sculpting skills so much over the years I have been following him!" ( Suggested by fiathriel and Featured by LabyrinthCreations )
Well Arty, you have done it again. This is simply wonderful. Your execution of the concept art is near flawless.

Let me explain the scoring for a moment before I go into more of what I like and dislike about the piece.
Vision gets almost full marks as you have so faithfully executed the concept art. There are a few small issues which I will touch on later.
Originality can not get full marks as it isn't your own piece. I feel that to get full marks here you must use your own concept. Personal opinion I know but there it is.
Technique gets full marks as your work is simply exemplary. Not much else to say there.
Impact also takes a hit as the piece is not 100% complete. If it were painted it would likely have full marks here.

OK. Now that that is out of the way, what I like about the piece:
It is mind blowing how well you have captured the pose and feel of the concept art here. The awkwardness of the pose comes through beautifully. There is a wonderful sense of movement in the piece. She almost looks like she was startled while walking and is drawing almost out of instinct. Your execution of the "wings" and hair is superb. I know that the piece is 1/6th scale and it allows a bit more freedom in creating fine detail but it is still amazing.

What I don't like:
These are mostly niggling items but I feel they bear being said. Since this is a piece created from a piece of concept art I feel it is important to cover all the little details. The concept art has two bracelets on the left arm. You have created one. Also, there is the tie string for the sleeve on the left arm that is not in evidence. In addition, there is something of a belt shown in the concept art that also appears to be missing. I'm not sure if that is simply covered by the over coat though. Again, these are very small niggling issues that only detract from the vision of the piece being perfect. I don't feel that they detract from the over all look of the piece at all. The comments also come from an ignorance of the dialog that you may have had with the concept artist discussing these items. It is often the case that such items get cut during the creation process.

Over all I am very impressed with the work Arty. I think, in a lot of ways, this is your best piece to date.
What do you think?
