Change Opac­ity

Now here’s the fun part. With those ba­sic shapes, I try to imag­ine them as if they’re a char­ac­ter. I add some eyes, and even whole faces to them. Then I try imag­in­ing the lower part of the in­stru­ment as the char­ac­ter’s body, too. Of course, I can al­ways change their per­spec­tive.

Sim­plify your char­ac­ter

I keep the char­ac­ter sim­ple. It’s not about tex­tures or ac­ces­sories here, more about lines and sil­hou­ettes. I de­crease my char­ac­ter’s sil­hou­ette un­til it looks sim­ple, but it’s im­por­tant to add your own drawing style, too. Next, I come up with five char­ac­ters and then I pick the one who looks the most charm­ing. Now I can play with the face and colours.
