The best in the Business...

Post by spudski » 09 Jun 2009, 19:55

Imho this guy (Picket) is the best Subbuteo artist...second to none.

I know many of you don't read the Oldsubbuteo forum, so i thought i'd share his work with you. It's too good not to.

His figures are modeled on each individual player. He must have the hand of a Brain Surgeon & eye's like an Eagle.

Seeing is believing...

My previous comment was my first post in this forum even though I have been a member since March. I visit the forum daily and read most posts but didn't feel that I had anything to say as yet. This work, however, is unbelievable and one can only imagine the hours spent and the dedication that is required to achieve these results. :clap:

Some top quality painting, though the eyes freak me out a little bit! Im assuming he has used some sort of epox putty on some of the hair?

Bloody Hell........what can you even say :awe: :awe: :awe: :awe: :awe:
I'd been wondering what eyes would look like (like military mini's)......it looks great, though they might only work with the more custom hair to make the heads look more "real". FANTASTIC work!!!!
