Willow from Buffy by TrevorGrove Willow from Buffy by TrevorGrove
Here's something fun. Sideshow's upcoming Willow statue from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I was only hired to do the head, but it was a great deal of fun. I really like the character, and Alyson Hannigan has a great expressive face.

here's Sideshow's painted preview. Great paintwork! [link]

This is in 1/5 scale, sculpted in wax. I hope you enjoy it! I'll post an update with more shots after she's fully revealed.

This particular sculpt was for a statue produced by Sideshow Collectibles that will come out later in the year.

I sell castings of my Firefly headsculpts, but otherwise most of my work is done for Sideshow.

Thanks for asking!

why pay you to do a body when you could be doing another head ...sideshow knows where its at. awesome work Trev!

TrevorGrove Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Haha! I think that's precisely how they feel. I tend to be SLOW with full figures. We only do about 3 full statues a year because of it...but I'm so happy they let me do a couple! disembodied heads are fun,though!

Glad you like Willow! Thanks!

man your full body sculpts rock no doubt! bodies are relatively easy, until one packs in every detail conceivable and then puts details on top of that.

thanks for the reply solo!

Thanks so much!

This was sculpted in TMS wax, which is sold by Ralph Cordero. I have a link in one of my journal entries to his email if you want to order some.

Hi Trev' I've never used wax before,but have often been tempted to try. Would TMS be suitable for a first try? and what does tms stand for? I would appreciate anything you can tell me about the differences in working wax opposed to polymer clay and yes please to the link to your supplier.Many thanks Lionel.
