This is my latest Sculpey work and the largest thing I've done to date.  The entire thing measures about 16" wide x 16" long x 20" tall.  The figure is made from sculpey (with a wire and tinfoil form to lighten it up and allow me to use fewer sculpting material), the shirt and tie are hand stitched from fabric (had to figure out a pattern as I went) and the cards are hand painted on hardboard. I didn't originally intend for the figure to be bald, but I loved the shape of his head so much that I decided to leave it visible.    I used no photo references or models other than feeling my own face and looking at my own hand occasionally.  I haven't been sculpting for long (this is the 4th - or is it the 5th - 3 dimensional thing I've done) but I find it INCREDIBLY relaxing and right now with my hectic school life I need that (desperately).  

And so here it is (posed photo):

I used just basic craft acrylic (Ceramcoat & Anita's) on all of the painting of the cards and figure......nothing special or fancy.
