Marley & Scrooge- A Christmas Carol

Hello you!!*grin*

Wow... that is what I said when I was asked to make Marley and Scrooge from the Classic A Christmas Carol.
I don't remember to have done character as you know , I make mostly just modern people. I truly enjoyed making this as it was fun and creative to my mind.
Again, my focus was in 'telling the story' with expression and feelings. Both character have a story to tell as i trust you are familiar with this classical.
My buyer has not seen it yet... I will be sending her the link now... i hope she will like it!

OH MY GOODNESS...I am shocked. I am enthralled. I am totally blown away by your realistic depiction of these characters that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE and Tita, I think that this is where you SHINE THE MOST. Your animals are phenomenal. Your children and your illustrations as whimsical and fun, but I think that your marionettes are you absolutely best work ever. DEAREST, I have been loading my Etsy shop today so I have been so busy, but I see that you visited me and I am soooooooooo happy to see you! MERCI and I will send you my link as soon as I am ready. I will probably have made some mistakes, but just let me know. I am so new at this! GOTTA GO FINISH, LOVE YOU! Nita

Sr. Scrooge e Marley estão perfeitamente representados nestas criações. Parabéns Patricia, estou impressionada com riquesa dos detalhes.
Bjok.

p.s. Você perguntou sobre lojas de miniaturas em São Paulo: existe uma loja aqui no Shopping Eldorado chamada 'Casinha Pequenina', que acredito ser a única no Brasil! Existem mais uma meia dúzia de lojas online e é tudo. Triste né?!

When I was trying to do it yesterday, I was trying to write them all in at the same time, like when you blog! But now I found how to do it and I changed it! FUNNNNNNNN!!! AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!!! Nita

Wow! These are incredible! I so love your children too! I just found your blog via AIM, (although I think I've seen it before via other bloggers). I've been making miniature animals for a while and am looking at trying to be more 'serious' so I checked out AIM. I don't think I'm at that level yet, lol, but your earlier post talking about your first animals was very inspiring, so thank you for posting that. Anyway, very nice to meet you!
