This blackbelt coffee headed magician caught my interest on Instagram by the talented Trudi Castle @Lady_Tea.
The artistic challenge to recreate her illustration as a 3D model was a creative undertaking, but none the less very fun. The animation, rigging, texturing and modelling was all made in Blender 2.9.
It took finding the right balance to refine the line width, scratches, dents, imperfections, black ink shadows and grainy mid-tones found in the original style. With After Effects, I added a few touches of grain, boil and tweaked the levels to produce a more flat style with broken lines.
