My brother's wedding is on Saturday and he asked me after my own wedding if I could do something similar for his ditto.

I based the sculpture(s) on their interests / lines of work.
My brother is dedicated to fishing and his fiancée is a junior level teacher and loves to sing...


The sculpture is packed for transport, but this was the best pic I had of the layout (prior to some more layers of water):







Making of (reader's digest version):

armature:




Sculpting:

My bro


His fiancée:



Likenesses (sort of):




The base:




The accessories:

Lures:

This is his favourite lure and the red colour scheme the #1 ... ;)


Books/bag:

These are classic Swedish junior learning books...


The end result:




The notes she's holding are wedding marches...

Wow this is way too cool.  Your sculpt is very funny and well done.  I'm sure it'll be a conversation piece and they'll keep it for years to come.  You're a good brother! :-)

Fantastic work, as always! If I ever get married again (not counting one of those Russian mail-order programs), I'm going to be calling on you!
