This is one of the first times I've actually revisited a piece. I really liked the concept and I love Tupac so I had to finish this piece properly. I still feel like there are changes I could make to improve it, but this is good for now. I was going to add his tattoos, but I couldn't find good reference for them so I left them out (I imagine him not having tattoos in heaven anyways, but yeah). I'm going to submit this as one of my pieces for the FIT senior exhibition. I hope it gets into the show.

Mario! As of right now I believe this is the only highly articulated Mario figure out there, so I'm gonna try to make it a great one. All parts are sculpted in polymer clay by me. There are still some tweaks I'm gonna make in areas like the arms and I'm going to sculpt a new pair of hands. I wanted to have something presentable for my blog, so I kinda threw those together. When he's past the sculpting phase, I'll paint him and show you all.
Mario is pictured here with his removable raccoon ears and tail. He's super cute! Sorry it's so blurry, I wasn't using my tripod.
Mario in his superposable glory!
My head sculpted. It was inspired by star wars action figures. It actually fits on a 3.75 inch clone trooper's body.
It's a meeee! Wahaaa! Here we Go! I love Mario =D. Notice how small that sculpture of my head is. It's roughly the size of my pinky nail.
Rockitboy ver 01 the logical robot. There's a long story about this guy but I'll save that for another day. Sculpted in Polymer Clay and painted with acrylic. He's about 3 and a half inches tall. He's ready for battle!
He was really fun to make. Hope you like him.
