Character design project


Here's my inspiration board on pinterest. I already had an account with some pins so I just added some new boards including 'characters' where I hope to find some great images for the next few days!


Okay so I just downloaded a new ipad sketching app that I tried to use for my sketches.

The drawings came out a little more rough than normally because I was just trying to get used to the app. I have also included my brainstorming session for my character. I think I'm going to go with the first character (tree troll). 


A few more sketches I did this morning. I'm planning on taking one of the sketches and cleaning it up/drawing over it in photoshop today to get some more details etc.


Here's my refined photoshope sketch. I ended up going with this duo of characters.. Now to move into illustrator!


I just wanted to start by saying I love the videos and I feel like I have learned so much. Here's the first character I have been working on. I'm still working on the whale too since it seemed to get some positive comments so I'll post that one later. I might still play around with more textures + colors!

Illustrator shapes:

Final photoshop character:


Working on some different color options for my whale pirate character!


Worked on a new character today with the new brushes that Matt shared today. Loving the brushes so far!

Here's my work for my pirate character.
