Shakespeare Challenge- ADO

My Art Doll Team ADO is having a Shakespeare themed challenge. The rules: make an art doll of any Shakespeare character. That's pretty open, so I knew I had to do a non-human from Midsummer Night's Dream. Puck was the obvious choice.





Here is what Wikipedia says about Puck:

Puck is a clever and mischievous elf and personifies the trickster or the wise knave. In the play, Shakespeare introduces Puck as the "shrewd and knavish sprite" and "that merry wanderer of the night" and jester to Oberon, the fairy king.



Sometimes Puck is seen as a Satyr, and that is the Puck I am sculpting. I've always wanted to do a Satyr!


Here are some work in progress pics:



Head before eyelids:







Fully sculpted head:





Painted head:







Check back for updates, I'm working on the armature now!

You've got such a good eye for detail! I'm hoping I can get to that level!

I make my own eyes, and I wrote a tutorial on how to do it yourself in January:
