El Mimo

Hello All!
I'm returning from a blogging hiatus.  WITH A VENGEANCE!!

I've got a new little friend and here he is.


I've had this image (or something like it) in my head ever since I was in London poring over giant classical paintings.  Don't ask me why.   Anyway, the point is, I have it now and have this mime puppet that I love, but no longer has a purpose.  What can ya do?  Well...







You can put him in a glass box.  That's where mimes belong, right?


Yeah!  


He is so sad and pathetic, but I still can't help but laugh at him.  And now he's a wall-hanging!



And now here's the-
Process:

 Start with the face sculpt...

add some saucy legs ...

El Mimo is so glad to be alive!

Face paint!


And hair!  I had planned on him being a slicked-back all-black type of guy, but he talked me into an artsy, little ponytail.  It suites him I think.
 and POSE! 

Tah!  
Love,
ANNA
