Volition by scenceable Volition by scenceable
Volition is a ooak (one of a kind) clydesdale unicorn stallion sculpture. He is made from polymer clay over wire and foil, and painted in acrylic. Like all my sculptures, Volition is a true one of a kind, meaning no moulds were used or taken in his creation. He is quite large, about 6 inches long from chest to bum. He has brown inset resin eyes and tibetan lamb fur for hair.

Volition is actually a very old sculpture, I started him in 2011 and put him aside for several months, later to realize I had done his anatomy wrong. At one point I removed his old head and attached it to another sculpture (Meridian the hippocampus, if you're curious) and made him a new one. Once again I abandoned him and finally got to working on him again in 2013, but the way his original armature was made I felt he was better suited to a draft body. I got a little carried away with the painting on his white markings but I like how the texture turned out. I haven't painted a bay in a long time, nor have I ever done much in the way of draft horses so this guy was a nice change for me.

Volition is for sale on etsy! [link]

If you are interested in following my sculpture work and seeing progress photos feel free to check out my facebook [link] or tumblr [link]

Thanks for looking!

I actually still have Volition, the person who wanted him hasn't paid yet and I haven't relisted him. I was originally asking $300, so if you want to work something out just send me a note :)

Wow! I've been looking through your gallery for about twenty minutes now and i must say this is oddly one of my favorites. The anatomy is absolutely perfect (especially compared to some of the other older pieces) and the markings are so realistic looking! My one "complaint" is that i find the forelock to be ridiculously long for the rest of the horse; it is almost awkwardly long to me and disrupts the "flow" of the peice to me.

Thanks so much! I think you're definitely right about the forelock, now that I look at it again :XD:

This has to be my favorite realistic hairing style you've done. You don't do the more natural, normal-length manes very often, and that coupled with the etchy white markings make him look so real!
