    Well actually a lot of trial and error, when younger , then books and videos, and a lot of times as you can see on my past videos , just figuring things on the spot :lol:

    with that pose it will be same height with other human, and i prefer
    the thing that boring me is that with original pose, superman has got about 10cm higher
    it feels hes much bigger than other
    and yes im agree with enzo with the base too big...too light compare to other cinemaquette, and i prefer a nameplate like other instead of the :superman:

    Good point about the name plate. I always liked the base on this one, but even with how cool the base is, it doesn't match the other CM's.

    Rafs seamstress did an amazing job, the pants are incredible the coat is more incredible. What a profess nail job. I am very very happy with it. However I was hoping for your opinions on some things, like gun placement. I have been talking with raf a lot about something's as well such as proportion etc. raf any chance you can post a coule work in progress pics you have been sending me to get everyone's take on this? Pics can be so deceiving. I am hoping to Skype with raf tonight and talk with him and see the joker in real time. And yes Steve so super excited to get this back in my cabinet. I cannot tell you guys enough how unreal raf is at what he does and how professional he is. So lucky to have him as a friend.

    It turned out incredible - a gargantuan improvement over the original costuming, pose and essence. This is a mean Heath Ledger Joker.
    I think it looks spot on as is - maybe just flay the arms out a little but nothing more. I wouldn't mess with the head now either - position looks perfect.
    The only other thing would be to centre him on the base.
    Three thumbs up from me. Raf does it again.

    Damn raf, these look even better than the ones u and I were passing around. I love the first one. This is how I'm looking to pose him, his head facing straight at you, kinda standing side ways., like in the first pic.

    Thanks Steve yes I agree with the arms they are not glued yet so they tend to be too close to sides , once glued they will be a bit open , and Enzo will be wanting him to look as in the first pic so that is the wau he will be put in center of base , :)

    I would leave the head like that, looks cool. If you pose the head straight on you'll need to re-position the eyes - otherwise they'll look odd if his head is straight on with the eyes off to the side.
