“My three most recent 3” commissions were all a lot of fun to create. My customs always start with a sketch to get an idea of how I’d like the custom to look.
Roger Rabbit has so many adorable features, especially his big eyes, nose and ears. I focused a lot of my design time on getting the right facial expression. I’m really satisfied with how he came out and think he looks adorable.
Recently I also did a Vanellope from “Wreck-It Ralph” and a Lizard Wizard custom from the Disney-Pixar short “Small Fry.” (If you haven’t seen the short, it’s super cute.)
The hardest part of Vanellope’s design were her eyes and figuring out what kind of design I wanted for her ears. I really wanted to convey the childhood sweetness of her character.
For Lizard Wizard the hardest part was sculpting the hat. This custom represents a lot of what I love about commissions because I would have never thought to do this character otherwise and had a lot of fun creating him. I had never heard of the “Small Fry” short before and I really enjoyed the short along with this cute character.”
