If I Weren't So Drunk, Why I'd....What Was I Sayin'?

Today's lesson: Kids, don't drink and riot. It's a deadly combination. Just take a look at this fellow, who's had a bit too much of the sauce every day. Do you want to grow up to be like him? Need we say more? I don't think so.

I had a lot of fun painting this guy's face. When I finished priming him, he looked like a drunk old coot, so I just had to try my hand at making him look like one. I gave his bulbous nose a nice shade of red, along with his cheeks and lips. Plus some bleary eyes. That single tooth is also nasty. His ratty and worn jacket fit him perfectly. Sometimes I get a bit proud of my "children"! LOL. Another of the London Thugs pack.


  1. Just looked at the last several posts and I really like all the models you've been doing. Excellent work.

  2. Glad I started following your blog! This guy is great. I always love it when someone (both sculptor and painter) puts so much genuine character into a little guy an inch tall. He looks like he just staggered out of a particularly disreputable dockside dive.

  3. Thanks! Another one is coming Sunday as well.
