“For me, it’s a show I go to for comfort. It’s hilarious, relatable and heartwarming. I’ve heard thousands of fans over the years say that during tough times, they would watch it to pick themselves up. morale. All in all, I worked on this project for nearly seven years. I used behind-the-scenes photos, laid out shots, and reviewed the show as references for my designs. It was a lot of fun to recreate classic moments from the show over the years. Even after reaching 10,000 votes, I continued to add new features to improve the model. One of my biggest changes was resizing it to reduce the size of all while retaining so many characters. I’m so grateful to the fans who came out to promote and vote for my latest creations, it really means a lot to me.”
