Something Different

Gaara from the anime “Naruto”. Got asked for him some time ago.
I usually don’t do adaptions of other artists’ characters (and I certainly won’t create models of real people), and I don’t think I’m very good at it anyway. However, for some reason I liked this request, so I gave it a try.

Modelling his face wasn’t easy. To begin with his original manga look is very different from the realistic one I went for. Except for the general shape his face is very featureless in the anime, so I mostly had to wing it.
My options for hair and clothing were quite limited, too, this is the closest I could find.

It is a long time since I last saw “Naruto”. I seem to remember that Gaara’s skin might actually be armour made of sand and that I should have textured it like that, but I’m not sure any more if he wore it all the time or not. In the end, I went with pale skin. Other characters from the series sprout eyebrows, so I assume Gaara’s lack thereof wasn’t an artistic choice but that he actually has none. I decided the same was likely true for any other body hair. The character on his forehead was referenced to as both a scar and a tattoo in different places on the internet. I decided to go with tattoo, might be wrong.

    I think you did a good job! He looks pretty fierce. (Also, the world needs more fundoshis worn by not-sumo-sized characters.)

      I wish I had a better fundoshi model for them. This is the only one of a rokushaku fundoshi I ever found. It is quite old and I had to convert it over several figure generations, but despite this it still fits and looks surprisingly good. I got a second model of an etchu fundoshi, but I don’t like that style as much.
