Character Illustration

What's up everyone. I know that I'm late to the party, but I am the one to never miss out. I joined this course hoping I could use this opportunity to experiment, learn something new, and create a great project. My character will be an athletic lion for a t-shirt design I'm assigned to do.

So here's the link to my inspiration board:

On August 3, 2015, I began doodling some ideas I had in my head. After a while, I came up with this sketch.


After that sketch, I plugged it into Illustrator to start the process of using the pen tool to make shapes.


Then I added my initial color palette...


Next, I exported to Photoshop to began adding two direct light sources. Frontal for the lion, and side lighting for the balls.


And lastly, I added highlights and details on the image to finishing touches.
