Animal Character Illustration

Another challenge set by Lisa Bardot’s Character camp was to create unique animal characters.

Here a few that I came up with.

Mr Bear was always a complete gentleman.
Meet Captain Douglas, a most courageous spitfire flying duck.
Mr and Mr Mouse were this years pearly king and queen of the gutter.

Dressing-Up

I really enjoy drawing characters and wanted to have a go using Procreate. Inspired by cool fancy dress outfits I sketched out my idea first.

Then outlined it, making sure each line was connected to the last so I could use the fill-colour feature in Procreate.

Here is the final piece. I use flat blocks of colour inside the line work and added shaded detail on a new layer at the end. Finishing it off with a contrasting background to really make them pop.
