Jerry

Personal work.

Relatively quick portrait done for my friend Kerry (AKA Jerry)'s birthday.
She's a good laugh and is often pulling crazed face expressions - something I wanted to capture here, as I know she'd appreciate it more than a 'serious' portrait!

She's also a cosplayer, who has cosplayed as Trixie twice! Here is her page:

Andre

Personal work.

I am a big fan of Andrea Torrejón's hugely appealing and funny work. I love the design of her main character, which is based on herself, so i made a 3D tribute for her.

I wanted to model something really stylised and unique. The head shape was quite challenging as the design only really makes sense in 2 dimensions.

You can see Andrea's work, and drawings of the character this is based on here:

Here are some examples of Andrea's drawings:
