    @ungawa222 these are fantastic. Incredibly original and fun. The lathered gargoyle mask head sculpts are really something else.

    Thanks, Sam!
    I had 'em on postimages.org, which went offline briefly a while back, after I had made the posts here. :roll:

    Finally got him to hold still for long enough to pose for a portrait. He ask that you kindly go visit his brothers over at Tokay.

    So... I asked a certain guy we all know if he would consider employing his tremendous toy photography talent to capture a pair of one-off Knuckles I painted recently. To my great delight, he agreed to take them on, and I opened my inbox last night to find these killer snaps:

    Wow, some amazing more @xSuicide Squadx ! Those are two very excellent one-offs, some really great colour work, and Robert's done such a phenomenal job showcasing the incredible detail and execution in this serious shampooing squad. Thanks both for sharing here!

    Anytime I see somebody touching the top of their head, all I can think of is that commercial for "Little Baby's Ice Cream".

    I had told @ungawa222 i felt like these would present a challenge, and I was correct in the way, that, their scale and intricacy in paint detail was a task! But it was a lot of fun getting to move these around and try and capture the tight knit paints, especially in the suds atop the shampooed head! These are rather impressive in hand and hold some great character charm in its statuesque nature. Especially that grin! My personally favorite part was capturing the skull on the belt. I was pretty excited about Mike coming to me with these, and am elated with both how they turned out, and his excitement! Thank you for trusting my abilities, Mike! :D

    Ya killed it dead, man!! As far as trusting your abilities, you've proven your talents about a thousand times over, by now... I was pretty sure you were the guy to bring out the best of these guys, including all those technically-challenging-to-capture tiny details, as you noted.
    Thank you again, Robert... smashing job.

    (Oh, and my Tokay-partner Mike Ridge went absolutely nuts for 'em, too... he sends his thanks!!)
