Strange piece with a strange story to it.
This is the first game engine ready character, created under the guidance of @pirate_sheep back in the summer of 2017. We were in the countryside of Podstrana, near Split, Croatia, and at the time wildfire was destroying the coast. Flame came all the way to the house we were working in.
This model has a lot of details engraved on it. One of them is the year 1950 - the year of Torcida - Founded in 1950, Torcida is the oldest football supporters ( hooligans ? ) group in Europe.
Torcida became the lifestyle of people from Split. The tags and merch can be seen everywhere along the coast. I don't support or have an interest in football, or hooligans, but I find their agenda and dedication to Hajduk interesting from an outsider perspective.
During the wildfire, Torcida's coordination saved a local gas station from blowing up. They even tried to help us extinguish the fire on the hill behind the house, but it was more for the show-off, they didn't really do anything.
So here she is, the pink legend of S.J. Babara 0.3 or the "Mew on the Shelf" as some friends call it.
This piece was exhibited in London in 2017. and it also appeared in the game engine animation for BOD's music video.
For this occasion, I re-rendered the model and composited it in 3k 300dpi. It is the only high-quality image of this 3D model.

Fun facts:
- The animated version is inside the BOD's big release on the label Dance Noir :
bod 包家巷 - The Recurrence Of Infections 复发感染 (Filmic Supplement #1)
- Exhibited in 2017. at HarlesdenHighStreet gallery in London, UK. Sponsored and funded by The Arts Council England
- Felt Zine got me to VJ with a video version of this model on one of their LA parties
