Jacob Marley

Recommended Posts

Another excellent sculpt from John Dennett and Moondevil Studios. The 1:5th bust was cast in a light green odorless resin. The kit comes in 2 parts - the bust and the base.

After washing with warm soapy water, and giving it a coat of primer I wanted to make Jacob the ghost he was when seen in his scene of A Christmas Carol.  I had used Citadel's Nihilakh Oxide on the Ghost Lighthouse Keeper and decided Jacob needed the same treatment.

But first he needed his earthly colors. As this movie (1952 film) was in B&W, I was free to use whatever I want. So I decided on a white shirt, black jacket, and maroon tie, pale flesh and auburn hair.

From there I started his ghostly change -

I went back and forth with Jacob adding and subtracting the green and white, until I got a look I liked. The base was painted, and I added a little snow. Done. Thanks for looking.

I agree.  Great colors.  The blending and the shades are perfect.

Wow...that is really creative for the ghostly effect!  the snow effect is also a nice touch for Scrooge.

Thanks. The Citadel paint for a tarnished copper look really makes a good ghostly color.  😉

Fantastic effects there.

I just can't shake the thought that it could'a been the ghost of Bob Marley...different story...
