Addison Cruz in her natural element: passing by peoples’ eyes while she documents their every moves. She likes to be on the streets, in the action and capturing moments in society, big or small. An amateur journalist, she considers herself a ‘documentarian’ in her own phrasing and likes to snap …

James and His Luscious Facial Hair

James in his office.

 

Behind the Scenes

What better place to put him than his own office? I wanted to make him middle aged because it fit with the wife and daughter story. He’s a pretty typical guy, and the apocalypse hasn’t struck yet, so he’s …

Winifred’s Place

Evelyn Sparrow is Here!

My design for my character, Evelyn Sparrow, came from the fact that she is a college student at the moment. She dresses to fit in, but she also adds a bit of her own flare. She likes the plain and simple look of a t-shirt and jeans, but she’s also …

Tala in Her Natural Enviroment

I placed Tala in a lush environment, standing on a rock next to a river. As an ecology major, she would find her self amongst nature quite often. I believe she would find peace and connection with nature because she has minimal connection with other humans.

To keep her prepared …

Alex in his natural habitat

I decided to create Alex in his natural/happiest place. Wouldn’t you like him to help you out at a local blockbuster? He shouldn’t be this buff but I got him as skinny as possible without it looking weird.
