Character Experiments!

Working on developing some vector characters for a client website. It’s been a while since I’ve created tiny people out of bezier curves. Missed all the fun of shading in flat illustrative style.

Turns out speed painting portraits gets addicting. This happened while I wasn’t sleeping at one in the morning…

Version one above, and a second pass done below. Added more of a value range, pushed a lot of the shadows. Thought he might like a neck as well.

Bulletproof Coffee: the only combination of high cholesterol and suggested immortality that I’ve ever heard of.  Hadn’t made an illustrated chart in a while and this one just called to me (I have many bulletproof-drinking friends).  It’s coffee with a ton of butter and coconut oil for those who are new to the phenomena. #illustratedchart #bulletproof #coffee #infographic #chart #immortality

Working on a character design job involving tiny chefs. Have run out of prop ideas after using up the saucepan, spoon & salt shaker stereotypes. Have the feeling it’s probably not kosher to put children this small next to open flames…

Sketching straight to photoshop on the new Yiynova MSP19U.
