I am proud to say that this image was featured in 3D World Magazine Feb 2010, and won their 'Image of the Month' Award!
I started this as just an expression study, i wanted to get more "character" in my sculpts. But something kept me coming back and adding things here and there. This was also a challenge because i wanted to do it all 100% hand painted.
Also, I wanted a tom-boy character, shaved head, tough but still has girly attribues. So my idea behind the image is that in her world, where its not easy to be a young girl, shes trying.
