Surfer(digitising)

As always once I am happy with my sketches I then start to digitise. I again made My surfer in Adobe Illustrator with the pen tool and like before I always experiment with different colour palettes and then pick my favourite. I thought it would be a good idea to include Zach’s surf board in this image as it would allow me to pick a suitable colour for it seeing it against his character.

Surfer

On completion of my two main female characters I decided to get started on the first of my male lead characters. This is the character that the princess falls in love with, his name is ??, he is human and he loves to surf. I began by researching some images of surfers and cartoons that include a surfing character to get some inspiration.

I decided that he would be a surfer, my story is a more modernised version of The Little Mermaid and instead of him being a sailor I wanted to make him something more contemporary.

In designing him I began with hairstyles. As I already new his basic facial features I thought this would be the best way to start.
