Animal Crossing New Horizons released this weekend and it seemed like an appropriate time to do some fan art of a couple of my favorite characters :) A big goal for myself this year is to tell more stories in my work. I wanted to expand on the concept of Isabelle having a crush on KK Slider and so I set up this scene between the two of them. The design for Isabelle was based more heavily on the lovely 2D art included with this project. KK was loosely based on a few different pieces of concept and official art that I found but I wanted to try and create a slightly original design for him to fit this scene.
I was interviewed by 80 Level regarding this piece. You can read more about it and see the thought process I had while working on it here:
