Animal Character Design
These illustrations were completed for a class taught by Nina Rycroft on Skillshare called " Animal Character Design for Picture book Illustrators". Two methods were taught... one (featuring the French bulldog) where observational drawings, no tracing, are reworked into characters with the dominant features exaggerated. The other method (featuring the Dachshund) involved alternating between observational and blind drawings until the caricature evolved naturally. Such an interesting process!
