This is so perfect, it makes me want to cry! (Mainly because I'm not sure I'll ever attain such a high standard!)This is such a great use of colour - the little tints in the armour and the hair are brilliant - and that's not even mentioning the patterning on the wings.Genuinely, this is probably the best diorama I can ever remember seeing.Dare I ask... how long did it take???Thank you for sharing something as inspiring as this and well done on your win - thoroughly deserved!
I couldn't even begin to guess how many hours this took but the work was carried out over a two year period. My first post for the project was back in July 2011.
Great work, thanks for the close up!
Outstanding! Have been following your progress on this as you've been going and saw it in the flesh at GD. Well done David, really nice.
Amazing work and a well-deserved win. Thanks for sharing the process as you working on the piece too.
Congratulations on the win. Astounding work.
Wonderfull work! You really deserve the sword for this job. The wings are very impressive and give me good ideas for my vargheists.One more time well job!
Congratulations!!! A well-served slayer sword. It was a real pleasure to take part in the development of this mind-blowing project... I am grateful that you shared your thoughts and the WIP befor going to the GD. In most cases people do not want to show their WIPs, which is a pity, I think. I really admire your works and your style!!! Keep it on...really looking for more to come. Thx a lot! ^^Best regards,Skyle
What a pleasure it is to see your work again after so many years. I still admire your early Golden Demon entries and was lucky enough to see some in the flesh in the Southampton branch of Games Workshop circa 1989/90. This piece is breathtaking; I can't really sum it up more than that. Winning the grand prize again after such a long time is like a fairy tale, almost. I was trying to explain this to my girlfriend the other day but it was kind of lost on her! Flawless work, here. Absolutely magnificent!!!!!
This is one of the finest works I've seen. Wow. Love your blog too. Would you mind if I share some of your work on my blog if I accredit and post link?
Hi Shay & thanks. I've no problem with you sharing some of my work.
