Sample Project: Skiing Penguin

Hello everyone,


For my class project I decided to create a painted T-shirt for a friend.

I know that she likes:

  • Cute penguins;

  • Sports, hiking and skiing;

  • Red and blue as favourite colours;

So, I began by gathering images for a mood board:

  • With real life penguins that I find suitable as they are really cute and special features that I have in mind to apply to the T-shirt: a scarf, gloves and some mountain like patterns.
  • After that I had a look at other's illustrator's work to check what characteristics I like the most and I noticed:

                      - It's really nice how orange suits to penguins for the paws and beak;

                      - I also like the cute design of penguins with small black eyes;

So, with all this in mind, I started drawing and came up with this nice fellow:

I started painting it on the T-shirt.

I explored different intensity in colours added some feathers as white looks really nice on the penguin's body. I added some patterns on the gloves and scarf, to make it more colourful and this is the result:

This is it, I have a wonderful Christmas gift.

Have fun while painting and enjoy!
