Pugnacious Squint - final

After looking closer at the original pugnacious sculpture posted I realized he needed a thicker neck and broader shoulders/chest etc. to appropriately fit his superhuman proportions. So he got finished, baked and sealed.

Hey there,
Is this the original Pugnatious Squint with additions? If so, (He looks FABULOUS by the way...)what did you decide to do to fill the cracks? I am curious.

Oh, and we have decided that every woman needs some fleshlettes to toss in their purse. Something to get conversations going in the grocery store line while looking for debit cards or when routing through your purse in Timmies for change for your morning coffee. Might make people slow down and actually talk to each other....... or maybe they'd run screaming for the authorities?

Hello Kellie, this is the same sculpture. The cracks have partially shrunk over time. I also coated the whole thing with a clear acrylic medium and it partially helped to fill them as well.

As for fleshlettes, I love that idea! They are always available for commission! Let me know if you want to adopt one!

Your work is strange, yet inspiring! I've been working with Sculpey, I hope to one day get as good as you with it! That detail is fantastic!

Gashu-Monsata: Thank you very much! Keep praticing and you'll easily master sculpey!
