I thought I would show a bit of the process in which i make new characters.
This little dude is a commissioned drawing that will be put onto organic baby onesies (links to come in the next few months).
I start things off with a quick doodle. I then scan it in and trace it in Macromedia Flash. I then play with the smoothness of the lines, drawing different faces, trying different colors.
I love working digitally because its so easy to try so many different things without losing your original work. I also like the "undo" button - something that i always want when i'm oil painting!
The next step will be to decide on the face and body that works best. I will then color him and add shadows and highlights.
Final image to be posted soon!
