The Attack on Titan anime is currently on a long hiatus until next year, making fans wait even longer to see the visual unraveling of the epic story’s conclusion. The final chapter of Hajime Isayama’s manga was released a few months ago, bringing closure to the tale of war, friendship and freedom. Fans of the anime will have to wait until the latter end of 2022 to see those events play out on screen, courtesy of MAPPA, and it’s bound to break some hearts.

In order to make the wait a little more bearable, fan artwork, figures and headcanons are constantly being shared within the fandom and this clay sculpture of Levi Ackerman is an impressive, life-sized creation.

Levi Ackerman Clay Bust

The YouTube channel Challenge Clay Craft uploaded a 14-minute video of them sculpting a life-sized bust of Levi Ackerman. Using 46 bags of stone powder clay, at 100 yen each, the creator spent one month perfecting the muscular details of the captain – making sure to get his hair parting just right.

Levi is one of the most popular characters from Attack on Titan and the entire anime genre. As captain of the Survey Corps, his journey through teaching Eren the importance of choice, losing comrades and hunting his hairy adversary has been a tough watch for fans. Our only wish for Levi is for him to enjoy one more cup of tea before the end.

Meet the Sculptor

Challenge Clay Craft has built up a YouTube following of over 57,000 subscribers by uploading detailed videos of their craft. Based in Japan, the creator noted that the channel began back in November 2020, inspired to begin making figures after watching the anime Dororo. Developing a love for the character Hyakkimaru, the creator began playing into their fascination for figure production.

The channel has produced a number of videos sculpting various figures using stone powder clay, a spatula tool and sandpaper, with all materials costing around 100 yen each. Challenge Clay Craft’s motto is “Low cost and high quality” and the creator is open to collaborating with other artists.
