I love it Cathy. But I think he would actually look more creepy without the hat. Just my opinion, but the hat looks a little too citified. I also think he needs to be a little dirty. Will he be holding the shovel at all? He looks really well proportioned. You did a great job building him. I am impressed.

Awesome job! I like the face, especially, and the tie is perfect.

I think even dirtying up the hat a bit would do the trick-- pop the seam in a couple of places, get it a little out of shape.

I'd say lose the hat, tie and jacket. Gravediggers wouldn't be dressed up to do their work. Dirty up his clothes and maybe fix the shovel in his hands?

I love the creepy face and he'll look fantastic out in a dimly lit graveyard!

Looks good. I'm on board with the "dirty him up" comments. I would also suggest losing the hat. It just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of his outfit.

If I were putting him in my graveyard, I would actually dirty of the jacket, and have it resting across a tombstone next to him. I would have him, in a dirty shirt and suspenders, standing with his shovel. I think he'd look good with the shirt tucked in and suspenders - it just adds to the era feeling.

I agree...the proportion is great, but since he's in a suit, tie and nice dress shoes, how about adding a briefcase or suitcase with a body part(s) hanging out, and maybe a "pink slip" in his hand...as if he got fired, and he was burying what's left of his boss. It would sure be fitting with all the layoff's going on. I'm new to the forum, but just a thought.

I agree with everyone else's comments. although a different hat can look good, something like a flat cap. Maybe lose the jacket and tie but add a vest, and a lantern on one hand and him holding the shovel ...

As a reference, here is a pic of my gravedigger from last year
