My fiancé and I are nerds and have an obsession with Funko POP! Seeing a lot of couples using POP! characters as their wedding cake toppers, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to express ourselves. Searching every corner of the internet for inspiration we also found out that people customize these POP!'s to look like themselves. We loved this idea so much I decided to illustrate what I would like mine to look like.
First I began sketching. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw a few posts on my instastories. I had to research some existing POP! character's heads and bodies to find what character's head best resembled mine and what dress I could use to make it look like my wedding dress.
I used Poison Ivy's head as reference since she has a cat eye and side bangs (my signature look) and used Daenerys from Game of Thrones for the dress reference. Out of these references I've created an unique POP! Illustration that resembles what I imagine myself on my wedding day.
Stay tuned to see what I create for my Fiancé Rob!
