SpongeBob's Smug Smirk Reimagined in 3D With Blender

You like Krabby Patties, don't you Squidward?

Ümral Ismayilov, a Character Artist and Motion Designer known for his detailed 3D recreations of cartoon and video game characters, continues the series with a new awesome model inspired by the timeless classic – SpongeBob SquarePants.
