Slowpoke by alanbecker Slowpoke by alanbecker
I sculpted a life size Slowpoke! As a kid I dreamed of being able to see a Pokémon in real life. I made a sculpture of Slowpoke because if he were real, he probably wouldn't move much more than he does as a sculpture. He is therefore very REALISTIC!!

It's made of plaster and joint compound. I constructed a wire armature first, then covered it in strips of burlap dipped in plaster.

Go here to see the rest of the pictures of Slowpoke:

Do you think you would be willing to let me use this image?

I made a sort of vector of the Slowpoke.

Haha, very nice! It would be really funny to stick him near a road where cars are passing, and see how many people do a double-take. :D

Everyone knows what three wishes they'd ask for from a genie:
1: That Pokemon were real.
2: That being a Pokemon trainer was a legit job that anyone could do
3: More Genies.
