I mentioned in yesterdays post that I would be posting a new character project today. Here is the first of six posts from my 'Noah's Ark' character range.
I set this project for myself to practise my character drawing. Over the next week I will be posting a different print from this range each day. Today is a baby's bed cover set.
Character drawing is something I'm always being asked to do as a children's print designer. At first it really didn't come naturally to me (see my old character design post as an example!) I was always creating awkward looking not very cute creations!
However, as time has passed and I've put more practise into the area, things have improved! There is definitely a good move on since the days of my farm animal characters I posted yesterday - I think!
I set this Noah's Ark project for myself so I couldn't escape creating lots of cute animals (the options were endless!) Over the next week I will be sharing these creations on the blog. A lot of the products are unfinished, it was more a self briefed project to practise character drawing.
I will also go into more detail about the value of self briefed projects to practise areas of weakness too.
The week following my Noah's Ark prints I will be showing some recent 'real life' designs where I have had to create lots of different character designs.
