Immortal Champion of the Lady. SILVER at GD Germany 2013

Immortal Champion of the Lady. SILVER at GD Germany 2013

Hello,

I'd like to present the bigest and the most time consuming project I did so far.
It took me about 250 hours overal - to build the diorama, slightly convert the miniatures and paint the whole.
It have some flaws as I run out of time, and some elements were painted very fast so I could manage finish it for GD. Still I'm happy that I did it on time.

Also I wants to deeply apologise for my behaviour during taking GD awards.

It was strong emotions that prevailed over common sense. For last 2 days before GD I barely slept paiting for over 35 h non-stop with only 4 hours of sleping and even in Cologne I was finishing this entry from 2 a.m till 10 a.m on sunday. I was extremly exausted and didn't manage to cool down and look at my entry in objective way. Jarheds work was absolutely epic, full of drama and for sure deserved the sword.

Best regards,
Lan

P.S. Diorama is for SALE. I also accept commissions.

Probably the most detailed piece I have ever seen, I am lost for words really. I can't speak about the GD event (i must have missed it) but I think if this was my piece and it came anywhere but 1st place I would have cried my eyes out. I have absolutely no idea how you can paint detail that well and can only wish that I can paint this well in my lifetime. A straight 10/10 as it's absolutely perfect!

The painting is very nice, but I can't say I'm a 100% on the composition of the diorama. Out of curiosity, what happened during the award ceremony?

The miniature painting is superb but the diorama looks too empty for me. The horses stance on the slope looks wrong.

This is a lovely diorama, very well painted and executed with a theme that really carries it's own atmosphere. It's nice to see you apologize for your actions on the day, to me that makes you a bigger person in my eyes. We all know how easy it is to let emotions slip and act in a way that is rash, but I don't think that a lot of people understand that it takes an even bigger person to come back and realize their mistake and then atone for it. Well done for coming second, given the competition that was no easy feat in and of itself! Happy painting

A very, very nice diorama. The painting of the knight was absolutely excellent. Of the many green knights I have seen painted so far, your is for sure on the top three The dragon is also painted top notch as the "dragons guard (?)". The base could have really used some more work, or a different approach. Your behaviour was driven by emotions. Emotions are VERY high at a Golden Demon... I know it for my self. Most important thing is to stay calm at the ceremony, you can destroy your hotel room later like a rockstar Best wishes, Raffa

I am very happy to see that you had some time to think about your kinda rude gesture at the GD Stage and find some more mature, apologetic words about it as many really took it badly... ... We all make stupid things sometimes and it was a real pity in this case as your Entry was really an Equal for the Sword Winning Piece... I really liked the rich Green Tones on the Knight as well as the nicely set Base (Uphill)... I also saw a couple of flaws like the obvious construction for the Vampire Bat´s Head and a couple of minor things, but all those are easily explained with you running out of time... For all of us, a GD Project is a Battle against ourselves first and foremost, that´s why it´s so satisfying to finally "finish" and present a Project... Thanks for your Words once again, better time planning for you for the Next Edition... And hopefully see you around next year to drink a Beer and laugh together about the past...... 10 Points +...

No doubt the quality if this piece is awesome, but acting like that when being presented with a prize is really rude, not only to the judges but also to your fellow painters. Good to hear you see your error. The diorama itself is awesome no doubt about it, winning second or first is a matter of who has the more "awesome".
