Bowsette 2

Personal work
Since the Bowsette phenomenon began a year ago, i've seen so many different versions of her, in many different costumes. When making her in 3D I wasnt sure wether to do the standard princess dress version, or the more revealing leotard / gloves version so.... i did both!
Here's a fiercer, more fetishy Bowsette looking mean in her fiery castle lair!
Again - like last time, the redhead variant is included below.

Bowsette

Personal work.
Bowsette
Today is Bowsette's 1st birthday! I'm a little late to be doing a 3D tribute to her, but i still love her!
1 year ago today, a Malaysian artist called Ayyk92 created Bowsette as a silly comic / meme, which grew in popularity. Ive seen so many inspiring takes on her by so many artists, i just had to make my own!

Redhead variant included below.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic - Mane 6 & Spike

(Paid work)
I'm EXTREMELY proud to show the first My Little Pony job i did for Hasbro back in 2014, which was to recreate multiple characters as accurately as possible in 3D. Over the years, they were used (in part or in whole) for all manner of things such as toys, figurines and augmented reality characters.

Powerpuff Girls - Bliss

Paid work.
Cartoon Network contacted me to make the first ever 3D model of their new 4th Powerpuff girl - Bliss! She was 3D printed and made as an addition to an existing display model which appeared at London's biggest comic con in October 2017.

Siamese Cat Girl WIP

I started a new character!
I never post WIPs on here, but I have a patreon page, and my subscriber count dropped recently, so i'm doing a bit of a sneak peek / advertisement drive to try and get more folks on board, since i dont promote it much!
My productivity (and therefore my Patreon activity) varies depending on how inspired / motivated i am, or how much paid work i have that's sucking up my time, but generally, if you like my art and want to see more behind the scenes stuff, $2 a month gets you access to WIPs and drawings, $5 is for wireframes, quick steps and mini-tutorials, and $15 gets you all the previous stuff, as well as an Etsy store discount and a signed print in the mail every month!

Quang

Personal work.

Here's a cartoony tribute to a good buddy of mine called Quang. He creates his own indie games (as AsobiTech), collects vintage videogame gonsoles and is an all-round excellent human being!

I've attached a plain render lineup below as a bonus so you can see them clearer, as well as some photo references.

Naomi - OL

Personal work.
Meet Naomi! She's a curvy tribute to Japanese gravure idols, AV actresses and pinups.
I have several Japanese themed scenarios / outfits in mind for her, starting with this - the 'OL' (office lady) theme.
Design / concept by me.

PS - this may be my last post here on Blogspot. I just get the impression that i'm posting to a void and no-one is seeing my work here. Not sure if i'll carry on posting my finished pieces, or stop here.
I'll probably try Tumblr and Artstation out anyway!

Cutie Goaties

Personal work.

I've done a lot of great freelance work for Hasbro (my most valued clients) on the My Little Pony toy franchise over the last 4 years. This eventually turned me into a big fan of the show.
I was inspired by My Little Pony and the game ‘Them’s fightin’ herds’ (both featuring the lovely character designs of Lauren Faust) to design and make my own cute quadrupeds in a cartoony / toy style for a personal project.
I like goats more than horses, so here are the ‘Cutie Goaties’! From left to right, they are Fray, Squee and Shady.

Trixies for Simon. O latex

I'm happy to show a series of new Trixie pinups I did as a (paid) collaboration with Simon-o.com - Latex Fetish Fashion!
I never usually 'hire out' my personal characters (especially Trixie!), but this was a perfect tie-in i was happy to be involved with, as i already knew and liked their work. These 5 illustrations are for a series of themed gift vouchers Simon O have for sale.
