Zone Girls

The Zone Girls are human personifications (sometimes called "gijinka") designed and inspired by assets from the level design in the Sonic the Hedgehog video game franchise. Mainly focusing on the levels in Sonic Mania: Plus, Zone Girls is a personal project in crafting unique and diverse human and humanoid characters from otherwise non-human elements (floor tiles, flag patterns, neon signs, vegetation, etc.)
