Characterising an animal from reference was this weeks assignment. We had any choice of animal to choose from, so i choose a RHINO.
Final rhino design with references used.
The process I used from rough to final design. The initial sketch, vectorised shapes made in Illustrator and the final textured version painted in Photoshop.
A background added with the 2 characters. Painting backgrounds isn't my strongest asset but, I'm going Rambo (fearless) at the moment in all aspects of design.
This was also requested by a friend of mine (Luis). He wanted to see how I would tackle combining characters with backgrounds. I hope I did well.
