Self Portrait, 3D
Recognize this character? You just might! it’s the character I’ve used as my profile pic in a number of places for years. This is the first 3D modeled character that I’ve taken from start to finish. He has a lot of problems, especially in his proportions. But my focus on this particular project was not getting it perfect, but getting it done. It was in doing this character that I first learned how easy it is to do stripes in Blender — and things have only gotten easier since I first figured it out! Earlier on in the project, I felt it looked more like me, but I kept getting feedback that my proportions weren’t right, so I fiddled with it, and it eventually stopped looking as much like me.
