I scrapped the idea of a full BB Batman, it's just too damn expensive and I'm saving $$ for a Bonneville/W650, so I decided to go for a Nosferatu 1:1. I love the 1922 movie and I think Mike Hill's bust is amazing. I was offered a bust last week for a steal and had it shipped to streetjudge79 who began painting yesterday. He's a great guy, very friendly and tries to do the bust exactly as you want, if you need something painted, ask him!

The figure won't be screen accurate, I just want a "period accurate" Nosferatu, I'll try and get vintage (looking) clothes on ebay. That way it'll still look great imho and it won't cost a fortune...

So here we go, first pictures:

Looks just awesome. If possible, you could probably think about trying to push his head further down towards the jacket collar to make it appear that he has no neck, or has the head far forward, like a hunchback, perhaps try to angle the arms, so the hands are further in towards the legs and then finally get the legs closer together to give him that creepy, unnatural look.

As you can see here, he's pretty hunched forward. Of course, in the original picture it is further exaggerated by the fact that he's looking down in that one shot, but I tried to rectify it by repositioning his upper torso - not perfect.

If you can get some of these pose features incorporated into the mannequin I think it'll end up looking a heck of a lot creepier and the quality of the head, hands and outfit deserve maximum creep factor! :thumbsup
