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:

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:

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.  Smiley Before I have only made "dolls" if you know what I mean.

Whoa... wow. Just amazing. And you say you sent these on to the actors? Goodness, can you imagine receiving something like this in the mail? Mind Blown is the reaction I predict. Wow.
