Another Illustration Friday image, these characters originated from my sketchbook.
The original sketchbook character designs were drawn in pen and I am still trying to figure out the best way to create digital line work that I like and that has that pen quality — perhaps it isn’t possible. Anyway, I gave Freehand a go this time and started the image off with Freehand’s variable stroke pen. From there I took the line work into Illustrator and added areas of color with the pen tool and then finally copied the image over to Photoshop where I tweaked the colours and added the swath of yellow. The colours are bolder than I would typically use, but I wanted to try a different palette.
Have a good weekend.

Cute draw. As far as I’m concerned, may colors are too much plain… Keep on working!
Your work is great! I’m struggling to with finding the best way to execute my drawings. I’m finding that IF is forcing me to get some practice in.
