I see... The first impresion was that you have been in Cinema these days and that new Joker movie is inspiration... They say the inspiration for Joker was from Victor Hugos novel The Man who Laughs from main character Gwynplane...
Anyway I am interested as always too see what it will be...

Excellent base so far Dali! :thumbup:

My guess about the figure: a poor husband who has put the dirtbags outside! :mrgreen:

Fabulous modelling and painting. The chipped paintwork on the dumpster and electrical cabinet is excellent and the garbage looks very authentic. I zoomed right in on the newspaper to see if there's a crossword.

My guess about the figure: Batman taking the "Graffiti Removing Bat Spray" from his utility belt (Apologies to anyone not old enough to know what I'm talking about).

That backdrop is utterly fantastic and will make a super cool setting for any figure you decide to put there, perhaps some Mecha or Sci-Fi themed robot or other. That dumpster took a lot of work but looks truly terrific. How did you create the black garbage bags?

I can't help but be a tiny bit sad that it seems you have moved away from historical subjects, but I am glad for you that you have found your passion in this new arena.

I didn't wanted to make it so misterious. Yes, it is Batman. And my project has nothing with new Joker movie.

In a way I was getting tired of historical accuracy and counting buttons. Knowing when certain regiment had a bathroom break and switched from white to black underpants was too much for me.
But I will return to historical phase for sure. Then back to fantasy phase, then back to historical... I'm sure you see the pattern here. I just don't know when.
