A wonderful figure, Santi. I will follow this thread with interest to see finally the finished work. :thumbup:

I love specially the glasses, so well detailed despite the small scale. :shock:

My best regards and a very happy New Year, tocayo.

Santi (the newest). ;-)

One of my all time favourites. :-D

Excellent painting of the face Santi, totally recognisable. I think you've even captured the mischievous glint in his eye.

Seen this at another place already, but it looks much better here! Have only seen the gentleman in black-and-white before so this will be nice!

The pants were light gray and the shoes will be painted brown, I hope you like it when you finish it.
Thanks for the coments and visit.

Since the work is so close to being done, it seems frankly impossible that I won't love the finished work. I agree that you have captured that "twinkle in the eye" of the legendary entertainer. It is actually uncanny how well he turned out.
