    My new vignette is finished .
    It's a scene from the book the adventures of Hucleberry Finn by M.Twain .
    The figures are based upon the coverart of the book. One of the many releases.
    I wanted to capture the action and adventure on the Mississippi between two of the characters .

    The raft is made from plastic card and plastic tubes covered with milliput for the trees.

    The Jim figure ( a runaway slave ) is made from green stuff ( knetadine/duro ) and some details with tamyia yellow putty .The head comes from the hornet range .
    The boy is a slightly converted piece from the Andrea range .
    The assecoires are from various scrap boxes( verlinden , historex , unicorn , etc )

    In most illustrations there is always a tent mounted upon the raft . Because of limited space I deceided to create only the front . As seen in the next pictures .

    All was painted using acrylics and oils .
