Bah Humbug!

Staying with the sculpts of John Dennett, I picked up his new release in the form of Ebeneezer Scrooge. This is the Alastair Sim portrayal from the 1951 film.

 

The kit comes in just 2 parts ~ the bust and the base.

The first decision was whether to do the figure in B&W or color. Despite the box art being in color the movie was in B&W.  I spoke with the sculptor, who sent 2 colorized pics at the same time I found my own. This is the one I went with -

Starting to add color -

Then once again, I got into a groove painting the facial features and forgot to take WIP pics. I used a splatter technique on the base and then applied the woodland Scenics snow with a few layers of PVA.

Thanks for looking.

Nice painting and a striking likeness to the actor.  Personally, I prefer the "Scrooge" musical version with Albert Finney.

Nice work, Kevin!  I've seen the Alastair Sim version of the movie so many times, he is Scrooge to me, and you've done a good job capturing him.

Great job, Kev!

I think top hats should make a comeback.

I like how you have the snow on the hat.
