My Little Practice Elf

My Little Practice Elf - student project

I am so excited to learn about the Vector Mask that I used that method for all my shapes, I find it's the most precise for me to draw with just a mouse.

This is my reference sketch I did of a Kinder Surprise toy :)

I didn't think to much of the end result because I only wanted to practice my workflow with so many layers, the pen tool and vector masks. Let's call it a "work in progress" for now.

Took about 4 hours to get to this point so speed needs some improving but I think I the shading and textures slowed down the process :)

If you have any thoughts on how to texture the Candy Cane please let me know, it was supposed to have a ribbon wrapped around it but I don't know how to make it to look as clean!
