Created for the t-shirt contest on WeLoveFine. I had a blast illustrating this piece, and I wanted to show the process of making it. [All done in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Intuos3 tablet over the course of 3 days.]
1 | Rough concept sketch :: made without using references
2 | Refined sketch :: looked at references to keep the characters on-model [Mini Moose didn’t make the cut]
3 | Inked line art :: I learned how amazing the pen tool can be… <3
4 | Flat colors :: you can see how I originally laid the palette out, then reduced the number of colors to keep a simple range
5 | Final :: all shading & tweaks done!
