Xmas Mini-Me

flames
Okay, for all your miniature fans, and the others who asked, here are some pix of the miniature me that Santa brought me for Christmas. (No, not in my stocking, he's much too fragile to go into a stocking).

The original figure, of course, is Fat King Robert from Dark Sword's "George R.R. Martin Masterworks" range, sculpted by the incomparable Tom Meier. But he's been transformed into...

GRRM_front

(Turtles are my totem animal. The only pets I was allowed as a kid in the projects).

GRRM_back

Lil' GRRM was painted by the amazing Anne Foerster. Hat (with turtle pin!) and glasses were provided by wonderful Raya Golden.

And of course my lady Parris was behind the whole thing.

Love you all! Merry Christmas!!!

That is awesome!

As I mentioned before in a message to you (I'm not surprised nor offended if you hadn't read it yet) that you will get a cameo of sorts in MY series of books...just watch for totem / sigil ;) We're talking about half a page total.

It will be a small but important role, in the sense of the beginnings of an avalanche so to speak...

Mini-George is awesome! Although his beard is clearly not as epic as the genuine article.

'And the voice of the turtle shall be heard in our land'.. Song of Solomon
Thank you so much for sharing your perfectly unique gift! (I also love that your totem is poetically shared with the Mohegans who fished the rivers of your New Jersey and hunted under the wooden palisades of 'Wall' street).

Re: Love it!
Sure... just credit the amazing folks who did it: Tom Meier (sculpt), Anne Foerster (conversion & paint) & Raya Golden (hat and glasses).

It's good to be the King. Great job by all involved. Especially by the person who thought it up.

I hope that you and the missus have a happier New Year.

I am feeling all Gollumy right now
I WANTS ONE! MY PRECIOUSSSS!

Seriously, I am not being the tiniest bit facetious when I say this: this would be on my desk at all times so that when I get lazy, it will inspire me to keep writing.

So let's go into production on this baby.

Mini George is the coolest conversion I've seen since the GW boys made a hobbit into Peter Jackson.
