3D Art

Bunny Cake

I worked on this project on and off for about two weeks. My main goal was to try and find a reference photo that I could realistically recreate and at the same time learn how to use Blender's grease pencil and geometry nodes at the same time! Tools that I had yet to try out/wanted to get better with!

I really enjoyed making this project because it feels and looks so cute!! It's not perfect and there are some areas that I felt could've been improved on but taking what I've learned from making and completing this will most definitely enhance my future projects :)

Chinese New Year Fire Cracker

I decided to make my own version of a firecracker for the chinese new year! I ended up creating this piece in Blender and did some simple firework animations in the background for a cool effect. I also made all the materials myself for this piece and enjoyed making the flower the most! I believe it was supposed to be an orchid but I'm terrible with flowers! I also made the handle on the rope look like it was made out of Jade, which felt like a nice touch.


December 2023 Christmas Collection

During the month of December I took part in a challenge I found on Instagram to make several cute and personalized Christmas themed 3D models in Blender. I chose this opportunity to try my hand at creating my own textures for each model and took it a step further to try and make little characters that would periodically show up in each piece :)

2D Pixel Art

January & February Favorites

These are a few of the Pixel Dailies that I took part in in the past 2 months that I felt stood out the most and where I felt I made some improvement on my art! I always have a lot of fun making small cute animations for my pixel art, I feel it really makes the art come alive :)

Pixel Art November Challenge 2023

I took part in a pixel art challenge for the month of November 2023 with theme restrictions. I wanted to practice the isometric pixel art style (a personal favorite of mine) and these are a few of my favorites!

Favorite Pixel Art pieces from 2023

I take part in Pixel Dailies over on X (formally Twitter) and each day there is a new prompt and you create some pixel art centered around the daily prompt! It's a fun way to flex your creativity but also draw something you maybe normally wouldn't and get out of your comfort zone a bit. I always tend to try and make everything cute because I think there should be more cute in the world :)
