Thank you for deciding towards this class and hope you enjoy it. I'm so excited to see two guys, so let's get started. 2. 1 concept: So for the first listen in this glass, we will be talking about how to come up with a concept for your character. It's a super important step, because after a Destin inspiration session, you will get to know your character a bit closer, and you will have a specific for so on. Afford. Like you Imagine clearly how she looks like her age, her personality, what you likes and everything about her. The more effort you will put here in this step, the closer you get to a unique concept. So to get inspired, I usually go through some of the creative platforms like drivel. The hands Pinterest tango who emitters works pretty well, too. So I doesn't search with keywords that better describes my character and collect evidence to add to my character board. This is the character board agreed from the images I like. We have a clear persona now for Nora, a five year old girl who loves rainbow unicorn, pink color and belly dancer. She's funny and, like smiling. She also likes to wear the stuff. You're totally free to imagine your own character with as much detail as you want, and now that they're done, we will be using this board in the next. When he starts sketching the characters 3. 2 sketching: So after finishing our reference or persona board for our character, it's now telling to skeptic There are so many Softwares that you can use for sketching. But I prefer to work with the Doobie Forest, so I'll start with a blank document and create a new earlier. Then select the brush tool or have a view on the keyboard. Always remember to keep it simple and the joy this step. You're creating your character from scratch, and you're totally free to make as much details as you can or to keep it simple as you can . So now I simply start with that line a straight line to oppose everything on it. Remember to use the basic shapes for the head. Start with a circle two circles for the I, the nose and the mouse and now dropping the pupils simple eyelashes and eyebrows and does some simple lines to define their shape of the face to around cute years. It's a little girl, so some cute details will be really nice and will fit the character. Start drawing the hair was a little cube bank just playing around with the mines? Now comes the TR with a golden crown on it and then continue hair shape, then the neck and her dress, you little chubby arms. Remember this? Tribes from the persona board? I'd like to make the top of the dress, floral design or floral pattern. It's kind of cute and simple. Small hands for this character remembers. Just drop Flynt's Where Is Catching? Were enjoying just playing around with lines tryingto headed old around. These are cute cheeks, some details in the mouth and her level to too scared. I mean now point comes the length for the Rainbow Boot, also from the persona board. So the fund here is We already have, like a picture of this character in mind from our persona board and the searching process, and we kind of know who she's. And now I will lower down the capacity and create a new layer. Do we find my lines a little bit, starting with it, face trying to re flying the lines as much as they can. Great to be easier for me in the next step way will that to rise thes lines and mouth and eyes, trying to make it free size as I can and refined as I can eyebrows, thank you, traveled the years I didn't like step. It's It's where all the art happens and the other oy now refining the hairlines to make it clear your character you can play is the way you want. For the Harry can just make one ponytail we can make to 20 Things can even make this character of a different age different smile. Come play around as you want. That's the really fun with this step, because you just make this as unique as you can and now dry the ground, make it clearer the finer nines and for the dress I'm just drawing. So you fall in lines here and there, and this skirt you can chose to make your character just wearing bands or something and the chubby arms. Just try to keep it simple and cute as much as you can. It all adds to the persona that we have already defined before the reference board in two hands. I think you adding that he dates to the dress cell lines to her skirt, edit spelt, living more and the floral pattern here are her top. He has cute hamburger legs. I'm drawing this boot and the other making boots. Maybe it that this one a little bit. And then comes the details in the boot. You remember. It's a rainbow boot show. We can add this Rabel lines here looks really, really cute. You can add some unicorn horns here. Here. Not sure about this yet how it will look like. And the illustration? You can remove it later and now our sketches ready? 4. 3 vectorize: and now the decries. This. We have to use this marquee or tangled tool in photo shop to select our character control, see control commands he and open a document in Illustrator and Control or Command V and with the selection tool. Or you can hit be on the keyboard. We just select our character and lower down the passage. He'd like to 14 or 15 or something, and from the menu we choose Object lock selection or control command, too on the keyboard that makes it easier for us to draw. You have so many different tools to draw with here. Administrator. So many drawing tools like this pain brush here. Six free lines as you can and this of a truth mental and the regular pencil. You also have this pencil tool. He can draw Freehand lines, but it's really fun to play around with these tools. Guys bust for me. I just prepare the pencil tool or and on your keyboard, this glass. I just prefer toe. Put the pencil away, just given a break, and I'm playing with the freehand, told by the pencil to keep it simple for me to draw. Frequent. I started with the face. I draw the face, the pencil tool and then tool circles for the eyes. Just remember to keep it simple and use a basic shapes as you can. We'll make it simple with the pencil tool of, um, during the nose in the mouth. You can always hit any of these anchor points, and to make this sharp corner, you can hit this Aiken end. It's will be set and ready. We hold. So have here the smooth tool. It's a really nice tool because after your draw with a pencil to weaken, always, you know a just in the in the path that you have drawn with a pencil tool or any other tool to small than this a little bit. So here in the face, I will adjust and modify the path just to simplify, to make it more rounder. I am nicer. I can't can play with these anchor points to make the shape better and clearer and even rounder the fund industry story that you can draw with whatever way you want. You have so many tools to play with, but for me I prefer the pencil tool and then small. The path was Ah, the small stool. It really works perfect for me. Then hit and or pick up the pencil toe to draw the two years control C Control veto. Duplicate any shape you have, and then here I two is transformed vertical to horizontally. Flip this around. I have the two years now my hidden or choose the pencil toe again from the tool bar to draw the nick and the dress. It's really fun to play around with your tablet in dentals Freehand drawing pencils in Adobe Illustrator's Easy. It's really nice and with a small stool even. Always adjust these lines and anchor points to simplify the path more and to make it cuter and nicer. Yes, make this. And now the skirt. You don't have to stick with this catch you have already done in for the shop. You just can always added this whenever you want and just play around. The anchor points to adjust. The past that have drawn with a pencil tool and the small stool will always make everything better and smoother. Okay, so I'll continue drawing that the pencil tool, and here comes the legs. I will be drawing too cute legs year and for the boots. I also drove it with the pencil tool. Really nice of Smalls. You don't have to. Yeah, I can make this corner straight corner and you don't have to draw this boot again, years transforming flip it vertically to reflect it vertically. And he ordered the other boot done. And now comes. Yeah, I'm using this really nice tool. The curvature tool. It's really amazing. It's like an easier version of the pencil for the curves. And so and I will just when you double click on a on any anchor point, you just you make it straight lines with this cover chortle, and I will head this tool again, and I'm drawing the bank. It keeps drawing vertical curved lines, tell you, double click on the anchor point to make it a street corner. And now for the crown, I will use that the pen stool year to draw it around and done. Keep it simple. You just have to keep it simple. Enjoy the process. For me, drawing is like I suffer simple, easy thing that you express your soul with it so you don't have to stick to any standards or anything, just in a quick if you like. And now for the cheeks and making bees to Alberta's with the circle tool. And that the Penta, looking to draw some details in the years really nice and easy, can just select these two with the selection tool and adjust it back to the pencil toe looking to draw the eyebrows. I just make a line, and with the stroke, I go up with the errors and use the wet school from the toolbar. What's to for Sheff W and just go to the end off the line and play around them from the object. Expand appearance. It would make it like a shape, a feel shape, not a stroke anymore. In control, Sequent, Olvey and I transformed to reflect a tourist horizontally to make the other eyebrow the same for eyelashes. Io make a path or a small bath with the pencil, had the stroke up again and then make it like best Dream looks nice and looks like a cartoon eyelashes and then transform reflect or simply again for the other eyelash. It really looks nice in here. He is the face, same as we did with the eyebrows and doing in for the arms.

Now, as you see, the highlight is below these before lines of the rainbow So I'm dressed selectees trading alighting to be above the rainbow How you make that is by control your command square brackets to go backward or forward Just make it Lending wards overlay with highlights to be on top of their four lines off the rainbow. And now the boots are done and they are ready to work. Okay, These are the details for the boots. And now I think this ground in the tiara need some detailing. So I just chose to draw some circles like that. No, I just move it around like that old to talk located and I just select the three and change the blend. Emoto Overly like this. E think it's brighter and nice that work really nice or did you feel sport? 8. 7 texture: this. Listen, we'll be talking about, I think, some patterns to our illustration to make it more detailed. We start with them. Bank and hair. Just draw some lines as hairlines. Some corner like this think it's dark. Chose this shape. I think it's dark. Make it live the broader. And this is nice. Okay, Keep drawing the lines like that old along the bank. Then select them all and choose the shape like this. And now the hair is more detailed than ice. Okay, maybe these you'll make them a little low. But city from the appearance here in the pool, we go down with the capacity and for the rest of the hair. Just try to choose the drawn side. It makes him lines like the bank from here like that. Okay, I just chose I dropped dead. And for the other side, I'll make, like, two lines like these fans will let them lord opacity because this is a darker side of the hair and it will look like this. I think it's cool. You just can't take this one a little bit to the right, and it's better. Okay, now, we just had to the arms if you remember in the persona she had love stripes can draw some stripes in the arms, hair dressed leaves I'd like to make it striped. Maybe there are tons of ways to draw stripes in any shaping that a stranger. I just repeat, I prefer to make like this to go along with around this this leave and I just choose to overlay this color. And I think it's nice. This is a bright color I needed in this league. Injustice, control C control be for the other arm and transform Reflect. And here we go. Now the arms are ready to And now comes the part where we draw the pattern for that dressed up, I will like to make it floral. It would be cuter, so I just draw a little flower here. It was this collar maybe, and just copy around all around like that and make it smaller. So let them all make smaller and then head to object Pattern Make what it makes that opens the pattern maker here in illustrator re just just and made them. And now your pattern is added to the swatch. The swatches panel. So for this top I just need to select it and add the floor. It'll pattern to it. So all what I need to do is make it like this, and at the pattern, do it and just hit Linda Mode overlay. You just take it control. Exe cut and added inside the total like that. Okay, that works for now. I don't believe these. I don't needed I had to need them anymore. And now comes the part off. I think the patterns look nice right now. And just to let the pencil tool and add more details. Lions. So this kurt change its color toe. Something like pink color that maybe yeah, go up with a paucity little bit and go with a brighter color.

Let's head to the final part and final listen 9. 8 presentation: Now that we have finalized our characters Now the time to present it you can present them the way you want for me. I just go with some simple around it rectangle. It was a simple shaped like this and draw inside it and paste the rainbow We ever drum before. Make it a bit bigger. Yeah, like that. And of it thou there. I think it's the better way to the best way to present nor the girl hold off the rainbow. Exactly. I think it looks nice. And now, And just draw another rounded rectangle here and change its stroke color. Does something like that or maybe Okay, make a little bit smaller like this. And she was a purple color. And maybe it will make it. Yeah, like this. Maybe this stroke the stroke would be nicer if it's a dashed stroke toe with the head stroke. Chose the dashed line. And it shows the dash and the gap which are the spacing between the dashes And here we go do that You will get the pencil tool and we will create a brush If this change the color maybe green color. Okay. And then with the pencil tool. You just roll that relief here and copy it here.
