Meet "Candy Mat Hatter"

Hello there! I'm Isaiah and this is my first submission to the "Meet Mat" contest entry and first time really using Substance Painter. It was a great learning experience and I really enjoyed the process!

Final renders. I decided to give Mat a sort of "Willy-Wonka" clothing style considering that still fits with the candy theme. Also changed the head from a pinkish lollipop swirl to a green gumball shell with a caramel (if such a thing exists). Didn't get to detail Mat as much as I would've liked but I'm happy with the final result.

Wanted to start the process of giving Mat an interesting face, so far used the brush tool to create some peppermint eyes and a licorice mustache. Looking to give him a candy corn nose and colorful monocle as well!

Used the brush tool to add some sprinkles and chocolate syrup to the base. Use a simple color gradient to color the sprinkles but will probably change that a bit later to make the colors more random.

Updated mainly the base and face today. I edited the body material a bit as well, giving it a few more "sugar coated" layers so the "Sour Patch Kids" body could stand out a bit more in the render

The initial base texture I completed on Mat. I really just wanted to try experimenting with different layers and tools to see what kind of candy-like textures I could replicate so far. Definitely a lot more work to be done and some more textures to experiment with but I'm happy with what I was able to discover on my first use of Substance Painter.

Some reference images that I pulled from the internet. Looking to create a whimsical "Candyland" like character full of color and unique textures to imitate the look of various sweets.
