A quick pic of SAM v1. He'll soon be cast as a silicone practice puppet. Still a little rough around the edges, but nothing a little spit shine can't fix

Nice puppet! Though I must admit, I'm more intrigued by the big 'puppet' giving it the evil eye. Much more brooding and dark, which in my book makes it a lot more interesting. But I'm still looking forward to seeing the cute little guy in action! 

I'm with Strider - who is that intimidating chap?

Oh, that guy.....he and I have long term relationship. I plan to turn him into a silicone mask, but he keeps resisting that idea.

Lol well, it's good when a sculpt takes on a personality of its own, that means you're doing it right! 

Is he sculpted over a full head cast of someone, like maybe you?

Looking forward to progress on the little guy.  Is he going to have just 2 fingers and a thumb?
