Character Design/Color Scheme

Design and Sublimation

Here are a couple of new items I worked on today that I thought would be really neat to show.   The first image was created for an award order with a quick turnaround time where we couldn't get in a prefab plaque plate with a similar image and design…

Zootopia-inspired Doodle

I was looking through a Zootopia art book and seeing all the little 2D sketches the animation team was going through, instructions on how to draw bodies and such and I wanted to give it a go myself. With lots of fun, smooth, curved lines it turned out drawing in…
