puster said:Probably because the Resin had to be cast by someone else, while PA/Mithril can cast them in metal themself. Was there any notable difference in detail? I only own the original resin.
Axel, I think if memory serves that the resin was probably sharper by the very nature of the material - you only have to look at resin larger scale figure to see this. And was lighter in weight ;D
In my perspective of that project I would focus on a scene between the Narvi & Celebrimbor for the conception and lettering of the gate instead of the gate itself.
However, I also think that the addition of the gate resin or else would be a great piece of our collection and I got the idea that we could consider the gate as an add on (Mithril or affiliate) to the scene instead of pure and official Mithril release, which bring me to a new and very odd idea;
I was thinking why not trying to make one of us (Gold member) who is talented in sculpting just trying to help Chris Tubb and get the chance to sculpt the gate as an addition to the scene.
It would be nice see a amateur but talented sculptor member(s) among us who could actually to be introduced or sponsored directly by Chris Tubb for the conception and realization of this gate.
The piece could be promoted by PA/Mithril without being a total and direct Chris Tubb's realization.
(Chris Tubb could be seing as the godfather to the project and realization-)
We can also see that concept as a challenge or competition for the conception of this gate and the winner(s) has the happiness the see his/her name next to the one of Chris Tubb and the joy to see his/her realization being promoted or sponsored by PA/Mithril.
That is just an idea and certainly crazy as well, but it could be a nice opportunity for someone or some of us there to show some talent and some implication as well.
Also I add that this type of introduction for new talents is not new or original and it is very current to see a renomed artist to become the godfather of another artist.
Some of the very well known artists in painting or sculting got their chances by this type of sponsor, introduction or (blessing) So, why not do that with Mithril/Christ and the gate of the Moria?
