Sackboy and Sackgirl

This is a Sackboy and Sackgirl from the game Little Big Planet. I always liked the design of these characters. They're very customizable and expressive, and yet I seem to enjoy them most in their plain form with the zippers visible.

A while back I bought a bunch of Sculpey modeling compound with the intention of trying out sculpture. I finally got around to it one weekend and found out how fun it is. These two characters include real zippers and buttons, and are painted with acrylic paint. Inside them is aluminum foil, so that I didn't have to use too much clay. I would actually like to make more of these little characters, only smaller and with the various decorative accessories you see them wear in the game.
