Wow, to think White would come to my rescue...
Look, the problem with the 1/8 is that it's so...bland. I do want a normal look/normal dress one of Arcueid. But there's just nothing appealing about that figure or pose. Her face is expressionless and almost not there. Her arms just look incredibly awkward and almost pained. The hair looks inredibly rigid and a bit too big compared to what it normally is. And that skirt almost looks like it's riding up her side too much. And she just looks so stale? Where are the lethal rnails, the fire in her eyes, a bloodstain...anything? It's just so generic and such an awkward looking pose.
Whereas the 1/7 is just quite refreshing. Okay, it's not exactly true to Arcueid but slight alterations aren't that wrong. The lion version of Saber turned out to be a good one.
White, I can't get both. Did you happen to notice the cost?
Oh well, hopefully Bome does an Arcueid soon. He did a nice job on Rin and Saber.
Edit: Scott, is this harshness forthcoming because I'm not going to bring 'the artbook' to any meetings?
