To: Widgit, who posted the following comment on www.sideshowcollectibles.com, relating to my latest piece, the X-23 vs. Lady Deathstrike diorama
I don't normally pick up dioramas, and I'm not a big fan of either X-23 or Lady Deathstrike, and I don't even know what storyline this is. But from an artistic standpoint, the dynamic action and sculpted definition presented in the 2 fighters can't be appreciated enough. X-23's lunge and Deathstrike's slashing claws, everything from their loose clothing to their hair is in motion, and I love that I can "see" their moves playing out even in a static piece. This one actually stands out in my mind compared to many of the other dioramas you guys have made, maybe because it really does look like a split-second capture in a film reel, not 2 models separate models posing for a glam shot. I may have to pick this one up, the quality talent involved in rendering this piece is impressive, guys. I might ask, however, why there isn't more 'splatter', given all the edged accessories on display? "
I wouldn't even think of posting a "pro" comment on any of the pieces I've done, except for the fact that this guy is a Marvel fan, doesn't even CARE about the two characters, but really gets it. The once-in-awhile guy or gal who understands composition and movement....which is the only thing I ever took away from McFarlane Toys besides IBS. Todd always wanted "movement" "Like dis!" (the second "" is an inside joke)

And why doesn't DA post my replies under the appropriate comments!?!?!?!?!?
Whatever. The guy is obviously a suckup and doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. He's probably hoping for a freebie or a job. Artistic merit my @$$!
I am DYING to see a good still of this piece. That teaser promo is...well....a tease! What I can see looks insane!
