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.

That is the most cutest and most disturbing Pac-Man I've ever seen.

I always found the realistic Pac-Man sculpture to be a very intruiging view on Pac-Man coming to life in our world. it really makes me wonder how such a being like him would work in real life. :meow:

I'd imagine that it either bounces or somehow crawls.

Overall, I love how you sculpt the Pakku as this surreal, yet adorable being. :)

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.
