Frank Marshall’s Lucky Charlie Is Looking Fine


I know you all have been patiently waiting for me to reveal how Frank Marshall’s Lucky Charlie will look in his new paint and now you don’t have to wait any longer. The following shots show you the paint which in my opinion, if Frank were alive and had to re do Lucky Charlie again, is how he would look.

Some light brown thinned way out was used in the carvings to really show them off. The Marshall orange and a tad of blush to me really makes this fellows cheeks and nose really pop.

All that is left now is to add some dimension to the teeth and ad his wig. So stay tuned!!
