As I was cleaning and rearranging my living room I rediscovered an old project that I thought I'd share. 

A couple of years ago when my husband and I were preparing for our wedding I thought I would make figurines of the two of us surrounded by the things that we each like.  The idea was to display our Sculpy likenesses near the cake, but closer to the wedding I decided not to put them out.

Still I thought they should be shared...  Oh, and sorry for the dust- I WAS cleaning afterall!



My husband and I...  Unfortunately the paintbrush that was supposed to be in my hand was broken off.



A close up showing books and a palette at my feet, a book in one hand and a (broken) paintbrush in the other.  There is Starbucks cup between us (we're coffee junkies) and my husband surrounded by a salmon, a fishing bobber and a Playstation controller.  He's holding his fishing rod and a tacklebox (which I crafted to be free-swinging.)



View from the back.  Unfortunately I didn't get the stances quite right and they tend to lean backward. 

All in all I think it was a pretty successful depiction of the two of us, especially for my first big Sculpy sculpture project.

Great  job. I find doing the human figure/face to it's true likeness to be a daunting task. Yours turned out beautiful.

Thanks for all the kind comments!  Looking at this again I can see that the hubby and I are pretty typical Seattle people what with the Starbucks, the fishing, and the ever-present Docs.
