Some character designs

A few character designs and sketches done last week.
I feel that I am getting to know the digital brushes a bit better now. Hopefully soon I can achieve the same rendering style effect like the original gauche and watercolors. Need to practice and explore these brushes more!
Hope you guys like these designs! :)

New Illustrations

A few Illustrations I did in between work. Usually when I sketch for fun, I don't plan the whole illustration but start with just one sketch and then build the rest of the characters and environment around it. 
I don't know if its the better way but what I have realized is that once I see some subject on the paper I can visualize more things faster and better. Hence even when I am drawing my character I start with the face first. Once I see the personality I can draw the suitable body and gesture around it. Not a hard n fast rule but most of the time it works! :)

Tip of the day!

Tip of the day:

One of the most commonly asked question by students is that they love character design but don't know how to begin. Well, the only advice is... Just start! Once you start doing it. You will come across problems. And those problems will tell you what solutions to look for. Simple!

P.S. Just Don't do copy sketching, but attempt to create designs based on live reference or photos. Give yourself a character design brief and then try to find the design solution to it.

Daily practice
