Here is Rainy Mountain Charlie, a classic 1/10th scale bust by Lamb & Flag.
Wow, beautifully painted, Tony . The pattern on his rug is stunning, it really paid off mate.
I just noticed the subtle sweat ring on his battered hat too!
Now that has turned out beautifully tony,beautiful work on the garment pattern,I like it very much mate
Thanks Nick, glad you noticed the sweat rings around the hat band. Just one little touch I thought might add some variety to the hat colour.
Hi Brian, thanks mate. The blanket pattern was a challenge and I'm rather pleased with how it turned out. Nice to see something this complicated look so neat and simple.
Outstanding Tony. The pattern is amazing and I very much like the hat as well. Keen eye for detail!
Wonderful Tony, truly a coat of many colours.
Wonderful, even a sweat band around the hat, superb painting on the blanket.
Thanks Adrian, a keen eye for detail indeed. I would have thought that was a prerequisite for a figure modeller
Thanks Paul, actually a relatively limited colour palette of earth tones but a very detailed structure of shapes and angles to paint onto a uneven surface with folds and creases. Thanks for your comments mate.
Hi Bob, yep I thought of the sweat band as a last minute thing, but I think it's appropriate for an old man whose worn the same hat for decades. I appreciate your comments.
That is one of the best I have seen the blanket design and the little details like the sweat effect take this to another level
I have saved this to my files

Brilliant painting Tony, the blanket is superb as is the flesh tones, really good
What can I say......I'm speechless trough this amazing paintwork.

The blanket design and the additional touches you've incorporated make this a truly stand-out piece.
I've seen quite a few very well painted versions of this bust, but this one is my favourite, by far.
