"Two smoking Joe's", vintage photo recreation.

image.png by Peter Miles, on Flickr

I found this old photo on Google images and decided to try to recreate it with a couple of figures, I know it's not exact, but I use what I've got.
Hope you like the pics.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Excellent job, I love the use of painted backgrounds. Old school - but very effective! Very nice dio!

Simply grand Pete, the recreation of photos by-way of 1/6th figure vignettes has always been of interest to me and to which this Site has plenty of great examples. Cheers for sharing, Steve
