    I've been working on this off and on for a while. In case you don't remember the cartoon, here's a youtube video and a still of the character:

    I started out with modeling clay, because I really wanted a resin piece, not hardened Sculpey. I know there must be a better way to go about it, but I swear that it made sense at the time. I sculpted the head and part of the body as two separate pieces. Because the back legs are kind of long and thin, I was afraid they wouldn't cast well, so I added them on later.
    The initial sculpt:

    I cast them in resin, then attached armatures for the missing parts, namely the neck and the back legs. I covered the armatures in MagicSculp to complete the missing parts.
    For size reference:

    This is what I have now. The parts have been glued together, filled, and sanded. For the flagpole, I drilled a hole and inserted the ink tube from a pen, then topped it off with a bead. I just have to prime and paint him, then make the little "Screw Ball" flag for the pole.

    You got his expression perfectly. This episode was just on a few mornings ago actually. Are his back feet on right? The animated one looks like they're facing the other way.

    It depends on which shot you look at. When he walks, they look like they face forward.

    Daffy's primed and ready to paint. I just have to go out and get the right colors to finish him.

    I hadn't really thought about a full range, although there are a few more I'd like to make. I did have a request for another Looney Tunes character from a specific episode, so that will be my next one.

    I've been painting him, and I'm really happy with how the face turned out. There's still more to do, but I took a quick picture of what I have so far.

    Someone(I think DC Direct) made an action figure set of those two. They're about 6" tall. I think my Daffy is pretty much in scale with those.

    That looks really great. And what a fun Daffy to do. I think it is funny that the animators kept his back feet blue. They would look pretty good if they matched his beard. But looks excellent. I can't wait to see the finished project.

    Just a quick update: All the actual painting is done. I'm using paper for the red bands around his front legs and the dots inside the green circles. I don't know if I'm going to try and draw the flag by hand or if I'll be able to print something out in scale. But he's almost done!
