Putous is a Finnish sketch comedy TV show that broadcasted first time on January 2010 and since then it has been a big hit here in Finland. The biggest part of the show is the character contest where the actors and actresses play a sketch character that they have created and people vote which of the characters is the funniest and most interesting.
Since I really enjoyed the show this year I wanted to make "wool caricatures" of the two finalists, Leena Hefner and Usko Luttinen. Here's what I made:
Here is the original Leena Hefner (actress Armi Toivanen), picture by MTV3:http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/ohjelmat/putous/2012/1304242.jpg
Leena Hefner won the contest this year. Here is my version of the other finalist, pastor Usko Luttinen:
And here's the original Usko Luttinen (actor Aku Hirviniemi), picture by MTV3:http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/ohjelmat/putous/2012/1304164.jpg
I sent these yesterday for the actors and I hope they will like the dolls as much as I enjoyed their show.
C&C are welcome, just be gentle - these are my first wool caricatures ever.
Before I have only made "dolls" if you know what I mean.
