40mm scale Kalee
« on: September 30, 2011, 01:18:43 PM »
Some pretty pics for you.  Kev has done two arm options for each side





A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

I like her, very Kaleb Daark (that dates me).
Hands look fine to me.
Now maybe a 40mm Valaska to go with her?

Resin for me too please. To go with the 40mm Tyriel. They'd make a lovely pair. And yes, her hands do seem a bit too big but then so does the axehead, and the swordblade and the .... no wait, they're just the right size.

Just the weapons and the hands then :p.

 8::: she's beautiful.  Much better now she's finished. It only took, what it must be 5 years of requesting to get her done. Now all I have to do is convince Sarah to dress up like her for Salute and we are on to a winner.   :twisted: Thank you Kev, you've made my year.

Love the whole thing, don't think the face looks like a bloke at all.  Amazing sculpt.

Only a little bit. But then we know Kev likes to do the thin over pointy chin feminine face when he could do the round feminine face. In this case I'm not sure how much the hair adds to or subtracts from the illussion. The style might not suit the face shape (although it defintiely suits her). The face does seem slightly slimmer than his usual style 'though and a bit more pointy at the bottom. The crease beside the mouth and the eyebrow ridges might have a slight male look to them too. Not sure how she'll look at actual size 'though. It might not be that noticible.

Then again she's going around with armour and weapons. Why should she not be a bit of a tomboy?

Beautiful figure! (I still think the Artemis figure is the figure that sets the standard, especially a female figure.)  The hands on Kalee might be a bit too large, especially the hand holding the large sword.  However, that doesn't seem to matter much.

I don't know how easy it would be to make adjustments on the face, but here goes a few suggestions.  I think the face has a nose that appears a little small.  The region between the nose and upper lip seems too wide in the vertical dimension.  This region also looks too puffy.  Is there a hint of a philtrum or not?  The wing of the nose may be too small along with the nose being too short.  And this may be just the photo illusion, but the nasolabial crease doesn't seem high enough to the side of the nose.  Hopefully the figure below shows up to give an image to what I'm talking about. :smile:

I think the short nose gives a touch of character. it looks wrong but it also looks like a snub nose/short nose/turned up nose. That gives her a slightly msichievous character (or makes it look like she's looking down more than she is). if I ahd one serious request to make it would be that the hair at the nape of her neck do that little } thing in the middle where it's been trimemd to have a little point.

Kind of like these. But less extreme than the second one.







The way it's currently sculpted seems to be shaved.

YEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS  :boing: Been looking forward to this one for ages! Especially like the sword and shield version... Don't think she has a manly face although the hands do look a little large.
I really love the pose and attitude of the sculpt.

I could very easily find myself leaving my comfort-zone to paint this lady ( even though I have to agree that the nose appears a little short) - cracking sculpt (as is Kev's latest for Studio McVey BTW)!

I see what you mean about the nose, but the rest really is superb. I will undoubtedly buy her.

Nice arse.

Almost enough to get me to buy her and start a 40mm chaos army.
