This is a self-portrait sculpture. I attempted making it to scale, it about 5 foot 7. Made entirely of newspaper and 11 rolls of clear packing tape. there are a few rocks in the boots, so it could stand by itself.



functioning pockets!

Thanks

Wow! That's really cool. I love the attention to detail, especially the pockets and belt loops.

Amazing!  How long did it take you to do that?

Because of the newspaper prints, it kinda reminds me of a zombie lol

This is so cool! I wish I had your abiltiy to sculpt.  I play with paper mache a little but no where near your level. How did you create the frame of you body. I made a mummy and used chicken wire. I just believe there must be a better option.
Keep up the great work. You are so very talanted!
