Stella came to life two years ago while I was studying 3D animation in Belgium. She was the protagonist of the 2D and 3D animation I made, ‘Dance with Me', and she has been present in my art ever since. Easily my favorite character, Stella began as a ‘dancing duckling’, a ballerina, but with time morphed into different designs. I see Stella as a visual representation of my happiness, and whenever I feel down, or go through rough times I find myself drawing her. She has been represented both in 2D and 3D animation, has been made into a video game character, and now she is on her way to be the protagonist of her own book!
