    Yes .... the pose and facial expression really creates a sense of menace. The collared waistcoat and the scarf looked exactly as how I picture the character based on Oliver Reeds interpretation (y)

    The idea of sculpting some characters as Bill Sikes is one that atracts me from some years ago.
    If it sells well, there are more figures awaiting ;)

    Yep... I reckon it was the "Parcel" left by Bull's Eye in the corner of the block base. :LOL:

    Yes. My idea of Bill Sikes is a mix of images. One of the most influential is, of course, Oliver Reed in this role.

    Dickens describes him as: "The man who growled out these words, was a stoutly-built fellow of about five-and-thirty, in a black velveteen coat, very soiled drab breeches, lace-up half boots, and grey cotton stockings which enclosed a bulky pair of legs, with large swelling calves—the kind of legs, which in such costume, always look in an unfinished and incomplete state without a set of fetters to garnish them. He had a brown hat on his head, and a dirty belcher handkerchief round his neck: with the long frayed ends of which he smeared the beer from his face as he spoke. He disclosed, when he had done so, a broad heavy countenance with a beard of three weeks' growth, and two scowling eyes; one of which displayed various parti-coloured symptoms of having been recently damaged by a blow."

    Talking of Bull's eye, are you going to do him too?
    Brilliant,
