So this was a challenge and a half. My usual approach to vector work is to act as a steady bedrock to then work on top of with texture and line. I’ll usually follow a sketch to try to retain some of that life in the drawing. Just have a look at my dogs or recipe cards as an example.
So I set myself a challenge to create some critters that were wholly shape-based. No line, no texture, no starting sketch. I wanted to see if I could simplify a creature down in to some basic shapes and colours and still make them appealing.
What do you think? I didn’t too badly, did I? :D And it was really quite fun. I might do some more.
