Fantastic work! I can't see a single flaw in it anywhere!

It looks like getting the pose right may have been the toughest to do. ;)

Is it really appropriate to be posting nude figures here?

A fine example of both pre and post shading. Excellent airbrush skills there.

It's funny indeed. But wouldn't it be cool if one could figure out how to model it for real? As in have the coat, hat and sunglasses on but still not see anything that is under it? I thought of using some clear plastic but you could still see that....

Terry, remember the diorama that was very popular a few years back with the "stealth" plane? It had the tarmac, power cart, boarding ladder, pilot and even a shadow, just no plane.

I wonder if something similar in concept could be done here?

Sure do. This is prety similar. But how to do it with the clothing....that's the quandary!

Take a Ken doll or a GI Joe or something similar... cut off the doll's head and neck right across the tops of the shoulders, and arms about midway between the elbow and wrist. Paint the top of the cut off area flat black. Dress the doll in shoes, pants and a coat (probably would need to use Ken doll clothes)... turn up the coat collar for that "mysterious" look. Glue a length of thin, stiff wire (piano wire would work great) to the doll, paint it flat black... attach the sunglasses at the end of one of the earpieces and attach the hat. Yeah, you would see the flat black wire... but it could be very thin if you use stiff wire like piano wire. The effect would be pretty cool.

This process sounds like something from the "Saw" movies instead of the Invisible Man.

The filling out the clothing for the correct shape could be done easily with some crafty hidden wires. The hard part is supporting said clothing somehow tho maybe a wall or some sort to suggest he is leaning against it might be an idea. this way the clothing is supported in a believable manner yet you'd be able to clearly see inside it to see no one is inside. Could even pose it to show him sitting in a chair or a park bench
