Completed Jack The Ripper

    Hi all,
    I want to introduce you Jack, my new figure for the Scale 75 company, the scale is 75mm and is sculpted entirely with Milliput, I hope you like it.

    Great sculpting Joaquin. Congratulations.

    Great detail, superb sculpting - but a little lacking in atmosphere. He looks like Clark Gable, more Jules Verne than Robert Louis Stevenson, which is an interesting choice admittedly but maybe doesn't have that instant 'visual impact' of a classic kit.
    I can see some gifted convertor making this into a great steam-punk figure however.

    All that is missing is an unsuspecting victorian prostitute around that corner - then the character will be complete. Otherwise its a bloke with a knife. And with a bag.

    Superb sculpting and character

    Maybe a wanted poster would put it in context?

    Given that no one knows the true face of the character, I think your version is perfectly valid. I like a lot. The pose, setting, and the clothes are fine. The quality of the sculpt is superb.

    I really like it. As we dont know who he was or what he looked like, we are only governed by the historical fashion of the time. I can see people having some fum with the lighting effects being he did his deeds at night and the street light on the corner

    Surely we don't need to kill off all imagination and mystery with all the specific detailed elements included?.....It's Jack the Ripper, a mysterious unknown character that thrills the imagination because the horrendous cases of murder were never solved....I don't need to see the target of my Samurai archer to appreciate the figure, or the target of my attacking Roman Cohort or the victim that must exist to make my Celt warrior figure make sense.

    I always imagined a different man characters but your work is, in any case, really amazing. Congratulations for this work!

    How about this one in a small box type arrangement with a smoke generator to represent fog and rig some lighting for the lamp?

    Cool!! (y):cool: It is even more impressive knowing that it was sculpted from milliput. Joaquin, great job as always

    It was a joke of course - I just don't use smiley's. Can you imagine what moral uproar we would have next if it was done that way.

    I just see Jack differently. All depends on the lore and mixture of pictures that you have seen and countless fictional stories. For me it just missing something and I am not sure what.

    In response to Dimitry- As a lifelong Ripper fanatic I really like this figure and I fully intend to buy it. That said I do agree somewhat with what Dimitry says. It is missing something. I think what it may be is the figure appears to be an upper class gentleman and so many Ripper reports state that he may have been a lower class immigrant. Just a comment.
