Capitão Couves - Sculpture

It's been a while since I posted my last work, because I've been really busy working on a children animation serie.

Here it goes a little sculpture I made with modelling paste. This material is really difficult to handle, and the figure has only 8 cm, but in the end I was very happy with the result.

It’s just another day in the life of Antonio, the postman of a Portuguese prison full of sadness and moans. However on that day, Antonio has an idea to make the prison more joyful and decides to rip the letters and glue its pieces to create texts outside the normal. By delivering the letters to the female prisoners, them, who expected another letter like many others, became amazed and happy with the difference of those texts.

Maniche Caricature

Maniche is a former player of the Portuguese national team. I wanted to create player's feeling of patriotism, standing with his hand on his chest and on top of the football field.
I made this image for an illustration contest promoted by Fnac Portugal, in which I got a place in the 23 finalists :)

Hey people,
Here it goes a final render with post-production of one of my monkeys. I used photolooks to make some color adjustments. I still want to make some funny renders with this character, because I made a good facial rig that I want to explore in several crazy poses.
Hope you like it. 
I won a DOPE AWARD with this image :D
