Pakku rotundus by Kalapusa Pakku rotundus by Kalapusa
A Pakku rotundus specimen, part of my 8-Bit Labs series of sculptures. Watch the vid here: [link]

Each piece is based on a classic videogame character as seen through the prism of real-life anatomy. They are rendered in clay, painted with acrylics and sealed in resin to give the appearance of a specimen preserved in formaldehyde. Seen here is a P. rotundus, which is based on Pac Man.

I don't know why everyone says this is creepy, because I think it's cute.

Wow, nicely done! Do you leave it around places and film people's reaction to finding it? Because all I can think about is how if I were to find that lying around some place I would be forced to re-think everything I know about this world ;P

Almost as terrifying to me as the baby in Eraserhead, and much more adorable. The amount of realism you were able to achieve is beyond awesome.

Then when i discovered it was a sculpture, i thought it was made from a grapefruit!

This is just plain crazy cool!

I'm extremely interested into getting into sculpture. Various things with latex, clay, fiberglass, resin, etc. This is so intriguing it isn't even real, please tell me, what did you use to texture his skin?!

All by hand with an X-Acto knife. I studied skin folds, aging and various animal skin patterns. Just sit back and let the hours fly by. :)

About 3/4 into it, I stepped back and said "WTF have I done?" I didn't mean it to be freaky, just realistic. It just came out that way and even freaked me out haha

Thank you! The inside of the eye is concave, with the pupil and everything painted in. It's covered in several layers of gloss finish, which, when it piles up, gets cloudy, making it perfect for a dead eye effect. I had fun working on that one. :)
