Éclat is from Reddit. Quite possibly the youngest person so far to be involved with the project at just 18 years of age. An artist as well, his enthusiasm to share his work (which shows a growing strength in talent) coupled with his youthful energy made me want to create something a little more considered.
The acquisition process was effortless and after taking a sculpting class of late, I felt a little more confident to smooth away some of the glitches to bring the face more into clarity, to then push back in my own deliberate glitches where I wanted them. Because he was 18, I kept feeling he had to be made of steel. Young people see life with energetic possibility & I wanted his skin be the armour he wears to tackle his unfolding future.
