Sculpting the Boy

This is the sculpture for the Boy character.  The challenge of sculpting this character was to make him feel youthful while allowing for enough movement to be available through the foam.  I usually sculpt characters showing an expression, but for the puppets they need to sculpted in a neutral position.  This is so the expressions can be put into the faces via mechanics and puppeteers.   As you can see I had trouble reaching a full neutral face because I wanted him to look friendly.
