    Cracking job mate. The striped waistcoat gives just enough 'pop' to the figure and adds to the atmosphere.
    Groundwork and background is spot on.
    I've painted this twice and could happily paint it again and again.

    Janne, you should finish more stuff! The waistcoat really sets him off.

    I really like that base work as well - very well rendered, you should take a lot of pride in this one, it's a really good job mate.

    Very nice atmospheric piece. I can just sense the menace coming off him. Great work on the waistcoat and the brickwork is very realistic. I must admit, I feel sorry for poor old Bullseye the dog, being permanently next to this nasty man.

    Once again fellow Figureteers, thanks for all the nice comments and likes.

    The idea for the base was an early industrial England, hence the brickwork with the metal pipe and the hatch as a coal intake. And the dirt. Found a picture of an contemporary newspaper which I printed and put in the gutter.

    The bricks and the the cobble stones(hard to spot) was made by makin a few masters with different texture for variation. Then making negativ inprints in Plastiscene that I had rolled out with a Lego frame around it. Then you can pour Plaster or Resin to make the wall or road. Usually you can use the same "mold" 2-4 times before it becoms to worn down. Tried to make it more interesting with the small corner instead of having a strictly straigh wall behind him. It also brings the pipe into the scene.

    The colourful waistcoat was needed to give the figure a little more colour and to stand out more. Sikes is mostly described and portrayed wearing very brownish garment which is common for the period and the class he belongs to. However in real life it was common among the not so wealthy to buy cheaper accessories for the same purpose to look wealthier.

    It is a nice figure and I personally would like more fictional figures from the classics. The dog comes with the kit but its fraigile, I think I broke if not all four legs so at least three of them that had to be repaired, drilled and pinned. But it adds to the figure and its a great effect having them looking in the same direction.

    Cheers
