The Will is another character from the comic book series SAGA. I've been creating these Saga characters for a (very patient) client and hope to keep the ball rolling. If you're familiar with the comic, you'll know Lying Cat and The Will are partners, so naturally my guy wanted The Will next. The color scheme is based on the cover of issue 4. I'm very fond of this cover image (it's my screensaver), but The Will really only looks like this on that one cover. The cape and pants are a bit more blue in the pages of the book.
Since I've had troubles with original clay statues breaking in shipping, I decided to go a different route with this one. I sculpted it in Monster Clay, then cut the sculpture up and made molds of the individual pieces. After making the resin copies of each part, I glued and puttied them back together. Resin is very light-weight and strong. In order to make the cape removable, I had to make it so the head would detach. There are magnets in the base of the head and the body, so it can be re-attached after the cape is put on. Luckily, it works great. I plan on staying with this process in the future. It's costs more in materials, but the end product is much more durable.
