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 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.
