Persepolis - 3D Frame




About: I'm just making some ideas to become real.

Persepolis is  an acclaimed graphic novels,  that tell the personal story of  Marjane Satrapi.
As a comic book, it illustrates a young girl in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.
The story follows a precocious and outspoken nine-year-old through young adulthood,
and illustrates the challenges faced by a modern young woman trying to forge
an identity while having to conform within a tyrannical society.

This novels in black-and-white have been a worldwide success with its abstract drawings.
Persepolis has dreamlike moments.

Marji, so called, loves Bruce Lee, and punk music.

Persepolis is also an animation movie!  If you have still not seen it , you have to see it now.

I choose one strip to make this 3D frame.
I used cold porcelain to make Marji.

    I don't think so, because if you know the story, you will fell
    that her face shows how much she 's thinking about her life.
    I'm Tim Burton's fan.
    My next 3D frame is going to be a really creeeeeeepy guy :)
