Gambit: Mister Remy comin’ at you at last :). I had a lot of fun with trying to go for a street kid, cavalier kinda swag with him. I thought a lot about giving him a bigger beard, but then we’d be covering up that pretty face. Really need to break out of the mold of giving all my guys that hairstyle though… Oh well :). Really happy with how his playing card jacket came out and I’m happy with his features, through which I tried to channel a longer, more angled “French” face.
Nicki Minaj: Yes, I know I turned her into Storm. I know. I swear it wasn’t on purpose, though I don’t know if that makes it better or worse. Much like everyone else, I love her verse on Kanye’s “Monster” and so I drew inspiration from her line, “You can be the king, but watch the Queen conquer.” And so I made her a queen. Majestic, curvaceous (can’t lose her famous bod), proud, and killa. She has a great face that has some actual character to it so I’m happy with how close I came likeness wise.
13th Doctor: Mrs. Helen Mirren would make a fantastic 13th doctor, and I may be biased, but I think this outfit would be perfect for her in the role :). I wanted to achieve something like looked like a chic pirate. An explorer, a detective, a marvel. She should look capable and rugged but also have a lot of that old school doc lightness and frivolity in her design.
UM yes to all of this. ALL OF THIS.
