hi im rhiannon i like lemon tea and videogames and this is what my face looks like

Fun fact: I took this picture when I got home after a BBC Radio audition. I got decently far, into the second stage, but then lost it :(

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's about time I introduced who I am in the real world. As someone whose career is going to be in creative arts, it’s a good idea for me to be able to show all my creative skills, not just the one that will pay my bills. I'm super nervous about posting this cause now you all know what I look like, and you can judge how good the model is lmaooooo

So, hi. I'm Rhiannon, and I'm an aspiring actor from the UK. I will be graduating with an English Literature degree this year (hopefully, as my graduation has been cancelled due to Coronavirus) and I hope to work for a couple of years back home in the north to earn enough to go off and get a Master’s degree in acting. 

You can follow me on Instagram here: 
www.instagram.com/rhiannonford… (I'll follow you back if you tell me you're from dA hehe) this is where I am more career oriented than hobby oriented. I also upload MMD there so that potential employers can see I do digital art as well as acting, it might help if I'm working on more artistic theatre or film :3

If you’re reading this when it is first uploaded on the 28/05 GMT, currently in my story is my self-advertisement explaining to people outside of the community what I do online, so all the MMD stuff and creativity outside of acting. It's aimed at casting directors so they can see I do all this art stuff as well as acting, and I also featured some artists who have used my assets (properly credited of course), so you should maybe have a look in case I featured your artwork. I'll also tag you down below so you know who you are :3

It was sooooo hard to pick the artworks to feature, there were so many I wanted to show but it wasn't possible. Thanks to everyone who uses my assets, it really does mean the world to me, I love you all xxx

Also the plant is called Claude, he’s currently living in my uni house all alone because I’m in lockdown with my family all the way up north. I miss him and my other plants very much :’(

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok so I low-key love how this render turned out. It needed to be as perfect as I am currently able to produce art, and I’m really proud with how it came out

Originally I wanted to make it as realistic and true-to-real-life as possible while still keeping it within the anime style, and I felt that was pretty successful until the point of the hair. I really struggled to find a hair that looked something similar to my own, but currently I can’t find one. The MMD-Discord recommended me a SIMs hair piece, but mixing SIMs with Tda style doesn’t really pay off.

But apart from the hair, everything else is fairly close to life. I took the exact colours from the irl image and applied them to the model (I love the lips. They’re eerily accurate). As it was no longer exact to life though, I did make some slight changes to the model, such as changing my gages and nails to black, as that’s a more traditional aesthetic I go for.

Also, the shirt is fitted to a male base because chests small enough to not engulf the plant apparently aren’t a thing.

I was so happy I managed to find a succulent plant to represent Claude. I was worried I would have to replace him with another plant because searching for succulents didn’t help, it was only by chance I was browsing itumonohon’s NicoNico for other plants when I found their succulent heads. It’s not the exact same species as Claude, but its close enough :3

Finally, can we appreciate the clone stamp feature???? I had to rebuild a lot of the background in the render image because the model is more slight than irl me. I’ve never clone stamped to this level before, and I’m really happy with how it turned out :D

I am slightly triggered that the succulent isn't the exact same but that's just me being petty xD
