Pookie - Storybook Character Sculpture

This project was a gift for my mother in Law who used to read the Pookie story books when she was a kid in the 1950's. These books were filled with some amazing illustrations and I knew the sculpture would have to be just as precious.
The Illustrations are beautiful.

The Pookie books of the 1950s

So first I created a custom illustration based on the books from the Pookie series. I tried to capture the same style and magic, while representing it in a way that was going to be easy to sculpt. I think I achieved that. In the end she loved it, and I really enjoyed doing something completely personal. Please enjoy my pictures and comments.
My Design for the model
