I think it goes without saying that Hentai is a huge and pervasive influence on many 3D artists, myself included. In fact I would argue that most of 3DX is more or less a derivative of the hentai style (obviously with more western cues), and that you couldn't have the former without the latter.
I know some of you wanted to know what I have been up to, and well here it is. The lady below is my attempt to recreate the main character from one of my favorite series. Can you guess who she is and what game she is from?
Not sure what I am going to do with her yet, but I am thinking its going to be animated. There is enough still image fan art of her out there.
