The flamboyant-looking gent in the middle is based on a NPC from the GURPS Supporting Cast supplement. This is Tony Zbediak, nicknamed, "The Zee." He may look small but in actuall fact he is true 28mm scale. It's the four other figures who are perhaps too big. Tony has a low IQ but a high strength, ideal qualifications for a nightclub bouncer.
The two figures at the far right of the photos are bodyguards, although they could just as easily double as bouncers. Many years ago I saw a photograph of this pair in the Daily Mirror bodyguarding some huge breasted (patently fake) blonde bimbo. I cut the photo out purely because I liked the look of the bodyguards and I knew I had to sculpt them. They are deliberately overscale because I wanted them to look intimidating and imposing. I designed the guy at the far left as a GURPS NPC and named him Sean Crawshaw. He ended up being a 300 points character, which made him more than a match for most starting characters in GURPS. They tend to be in the 100-200 points range.
I'll leave you with a photo of the Monolith Bouncers and three of my illustrations so that you can compare the figures with the photo and the portraits. By the way, who else thinks that my portrait of Sean Crawshaw looks remarkably similar to my fellow blogger, Fran aka the Angry Lurker?
