So, I have my character designed as well as colour palette. As I wanted my style to still look quite sketchy while digitised I decided to play around with different effects on Illustrator.
This particular effect is called Neon Glow I thought it was really cool, I wanted to try is as I thought It would look really good as she is a JellyFish and the glow would add a lot to it, However the effect completely changed the colour of the character, therefore making it unusable plus I want to go for like I said a more sketchy effect.
This effect here is actually two effects, one being the neon glow and the other being a rough pastel effect, The pastel effect gives it a sketchy look but again the neon glow completely changed the colour of the image.
Here we have an effect called plastic wrap I think its a really nice effect, but just not quite what I am looking for.
This here is the rough pastel effect on it’s own, This is my favourite one and I think it really captures what I am going for. Below is a close up just to get a better idea of what it looks like.
