To celebrate the new breadwig.com design (which is basically just a much simpler/cleaner version of the old breadwig.com), I decided to do an illustration of one of my favorite cartoon characters. Click on VIEW FULL POST to see how I made it
First I started with the linework. Drawn with an ultra-fine point sharpie on copier paper, no pencil drawing first.
Then I blocked in the color with a simple flat brush in photoshop.
I wanted it to look much more painterly, so I took the mixer brush tool with a customized natural brush to smear around the colors.
Next I added adjusted the colors and added some texture. I created the texture by staining some paper with some coffee, stepping on it and then putting it in the oven for awhile.
Finally I added the line work back in over the top. I also made it colored instead of just black and white.
And here’s the final again. I was happy with how undigital it looks.
