I stumbled across Yema's work about a year ago and was completely blown away. Naturally I was really excited when she said she would like to link up on this project. I have always wanted to work on a character design, especially in 3D, so this was the perfect opportunity.
Out of Yema's amazing creative brain spawned Mr. Shiny Metal Box, a character that brings colour and craziness. At first he was going to be a plain grey box with shiny characters and elements coming out of him. As the idea progressed Yema decided that Mr. Shiny should be the epicentre of the colourful awesomeness that surrounded him. He is like a treasure chest with lots of fun and enjoyment spawning from him.
After receiving the Illustrator character from Yema it was up to me to take him into Cinema 4D, build him and shine him up! There was a fair amount of modelling involved but every different section and character was so interesting they almost had their own story and could have a piece dedicated to them. I just hope that I did Yema's creation justice.
Yems is incredibly hard working and was brilliant throughout the project. It was an absolute pleasure working with her so go check out her work here and keep an eye out for upcoming prints of the piece.
