Just a little something I've been working on. Honestly I actually made this out of spite! A girl was offering a job on the Deviant Art job board to make 6 Monopoly counters in the shape of anime girls. She seemed keen for me to do it, then didn't answer any of my messages, and eventually told me she'd found someone to do it cheaper. Cheaper than $10 a figurine! Also because there was nothing exactly like what she wanted on my gallery, she thought I couldn't do it. As I'd been looking forward to doing it despite cutting my prices for her, I was understandably pissed off by this and decided I would make one myself. Although I would never sell this for $10. Never get work of Deviant Art, kids.
It's not perfect in any way, I rather thing the face let it down but it's all good practice!
I sculpted the face with the help of a real gachapon.
The finished item! Not as happy as with it as I'd hoped but oh well!

I'm glad I've finally been able to get started on the real comic! I finished the thumbnailing tonight, so I thought I'd design most of the characters. Some of them are based on my real friends, and the unsavoury looking guy with the earring is based on a picture of an arsonist I found in the paper. Woo!
