Okay...how in the world did you get them to look so much like the real Laurel & Hardy? Apart from the excellent sculpting, naturally.

Marvin.
You did a wonderful job on them. His painting is an inspiration.

Mabo.
Thank you very much for the compliment. I'm happy.

I agree with everybody: your figures are very well made and are also very fun, Jaques. :love:

And you made an amazing paintwork on them, Marvin. :notworthy:

My best compliments for both. :thumbup:

Wow Jacques,

they are really well realized. I can reckognize my heroes of childhood very well - and Marvin's painted figures do them good credit.
Sometimes I wonder where this forum is leading me. I started painting figures to occupy myself when I am too tired to do anything else - painting figures gives my mind a rest and lets me wander through history - my connection to figures is really history. Many soldiers quickly and simply painted in uniforms was about right - I remembered the Airfix I had in my youth never painted at that time.
Now, I start ever more ambitious projects - starting to heavily modify figs, making portraits in their faces when before I just made a flesh-coloured splosh.
To me Alex and his sculptures started it all with his close to life miniatures, a level I had never seen before. Now many people do sculpts and I encounter ever more personality figures.
Stan and Oliver are marvelous, Jacques!
