The space between my character's R forearm and his R leg is only about 3/16 of an inch and seems way too close for comfort while trying to remove him from the mold. No? If you could explain the advantages of a complicated mold vs attaching pieces afterwards I could get my head around it better I think. Is it just a time factor or are there other benefits?
Ive made a suggestion, and explained the benefit. But only you can make the final decision on whether it would be the best way or not, based on what you see in front of you ( we haven't seen the piece) and also on how many copies you intend to make ( which we also dont know)
