Am I right in thinking that most if not all the statues that come with prints, that the prints are based on that individual pose on the statue?

i.e the prints that will come with my Mystique and my Venom Exs next year will a sort of copy of the statue itself?

Well normally a sketch is produced by the artist to give the sculptor an idea of how it should look. From that sketch a more detailed and normally (coloured) print is produced. Its unclear if it is produced at the same time as the sculpt although a number of the AH prints were previewed after the sculpt also.

Yep, the comiquettes are based off sketches of the artist's work. But the final print that is shipped with the piece is a more complex piece of art, requiring the addition of color/backgrounds/etc. So sometimes that takes a bit longer for the artist to complete to their satisfaction... you know artists ;)

Rest assured that we will have something to show before too long for the Venom. We will post it as soon as it's ready! :duff

I'm disappointed....it looks so bland compared with Olivetti's other works.

Chicky, can you PLEASE have Sideshow's R&D or production change the background color of that print? The red is horrible and, if you read the above thread, there is not a single positive comment in regards to the bright red.

I love the comiquette, but the print is terrible and I am having a hard time justifying the extra $$$ just for a lower ES.

I'd also like to express my disappointment with the lame background for the venom art print.

If all we are going to get is a red/black gradient for a background, how about just not even waste your time and bother making a print.

I tried to improve on the background too. While P!tu's is more Picasso meets Olivetti, mine has more of a Frank Lloyd Wright vibe.

PLEASE Sideshow could you get Mr Olivetti to do a better sketch/drawing than that, all those who agree say yes :D

... this is like one of those 'Fine Print" commercials running now on TV.

".... yes ... yes Sideshow, I know youd like a background on the print, but you hired me to do a VENOM illustration ........ not sure why you assumed there would be a background .... "

Isn't that hard to have a decent background, let's hope some change for Venom !
