Professor Pericles Statuette

Hey, I finished a project!

Character: Professor Pericles is a villain from the animated show Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated, which is brilliant and you all should watch it.  From the wikipedia page: this show features "two elements that have never been used in a Scooby-Doo series before: a serial format with an ongoing story arc featuring many dark plot elements that are treated with near-total seriousness, and ongoing relationship drama between the characters."

Pericles is "The Smartest Criminal Parrot in the World". I made this little statue as a Christmas present.


This is a free-handed sculpture. The only thing underneath the Magic Sculpt is aluminum foil and a long sturdy twist-tie.

In progress:

These pictures are after the first sculpting session. I went back in a few days later to sand down the rough parts and add more Magic Sculpt to smooth out sections. Then he just needed a few painting sessions and a bunch of coats of sealant to finish.

It's not a large piece, or terribly fancy, but I like how it came out.
