Jacob Marley- Steampunk by Vile-Victorian Jacob Marley- Steampunk by Vile-Victorian
Steampunk take on Jacob Marley. Penance muzzle is brass and leather, and upon loosening of wing nuts, drops down freeing the wearer's mouth. Done in place of the simple cloth that the traditional character had tied around his head to keep his jaw from dropping horrifically.

Brilliantly done. I wouldn't want to run into him in the dark. If I was in Scrooge's position I don't know if I'd even be able to do that indigestion bit if I was looking at this.

I really like how the harness is crude and the subject has glasses which gives the image a feeling of sophistication.

I'm not sure Marley has ever looked scarier. Very creative concept. And the colorfully blurred background really makes the subject pop.
