Popeye The Sailor Man
fan art project
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Electric Tiki's maquettes. This is the third one I was inspired to recreate in 3d. The way they capture a traditionally 2d character in 3d is remarkable. Now since their stuff is pretty much out of my reach, a 3d version is all I'll ever have. This is purely a personal project done in my down time, which there isn't really all that much of. The model was completed in 2012, but I only just got round to doing some renders. It was all done in Lightwave 3d, modeled purely from a few reference photos found online.
