WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

This examples shows the REAL work, the "Director´s Cut" of The White Council.
As it would have led to excumminication if shown this way at the painting competition.
So, this is the right place to show the main conception.


Maybe the magic was the most powerful force in the world. But that was long ago.

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

The "leaves" on the ground came from mother nature. It came out of my garden (yes, I have also one . . . )
The yellow flowers is a product from: "Green Line / Fredericus-Rex" with the code: GL-201
A bit expensive but absolutely marvellous. Milo asked for it.

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

Stunning does not describe this Master Christoph, it captures everything just perrrrfffect big_smile, and I was interested to see the fallen chair as originally I had intended to have Gandalf's chair on its side and overhanging the base.

I am also fascinated by the design sketch as well - I would never have the patience to go through all of that process, far too hasty I am wink, but it ranks with the Alan Lee style of sketching imho.

p.s. excellent use of the Luth... OOps lol dancing elf princess figurine.

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

I've always been a supporter of Director´s Cut projects big_smile 
.....brilliant ..... pure Middle earth magic dear friend ! 

in the last 10 days I made a complete improvements on my 70 orcs painting work. Something similar to works doing by you and Eroi ... and I am very satisfied with the result.

But all I'm more interested to slowly go into the world of small diorama. This is simply remarkable.

Please..... you know what smile

That is so true.  And this requires some architecture/drawing/imagination skills.

When I make dioramas, I never plan anything, I just start instinctly.

Still for MB560 base, before painting marbles, I did some colors tests on my computer to end with this:

Then, I repeated with the table:

Wow! Incredible! I wish I have more knowlegde of English language to tell in words what I think about your job. You are so talented!

In fact, all the participants on this contest have done a magnificent word. I'm so envious (in a nice way) of your amazing abilities!

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

I had a look on the Mithril page with the 5 entries.
Sorry guys, my number one is Christoph! Absolutely mindboggling! Der helle Wahnsinn!


Where there is a will there is a way, just as there are no problems, only solutions! Guess it depends on ones own perspective of the matter at that time big_smile

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

Unfortunately it is Chris and Lars who decide. hmm

Nevertheless it is very kind of you that you like my work that much and I feel very much honoured.

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

I also vote for Christoph as it is really how I imagine it... too bad the PM2 had to be removed, it was a great addition but well... ther would be copyright problem and well...

on a side note... now that the candidates have released their work, and NO MATTER the winner, could all of you candidates, allow me to use your pics to fill the database entry and possibly the gallery section?

Thank you Gildor.
And: of course - as far as I am concerned. But I think the others won´t deny it . . .

Re: WHITE COUNCIL - Director´s Cut

What do you like, Master Milo. Exactly the same pictures shown on mithril´s site, different ones, or what . . .
You have to know, I am not able to think clearly anymore- too much decisions . . .
