Make a Worm on Illustrator Make a Worm on Illustrator(0)

Use Illustrator to create a  funny Worm!

The Sketch 
You can’t make a proportional and equilibrated illustration without  movement lines, geometric shapes and croquis and an appropriate sketch of it. So first make rough line of the movement/pose what ever character you want.

The Worm
After placing it on illustrator. the first thing is to create its shadows by using the ellipse tool (L).

Draw the eyes using the pencil tool (N) or if you prefer do it using the pen tool (P).

And the same fo the strip.

Using the pencil tool (N) let’s draw the two lines of teeth, leave a space on the borders of each one, as it was gnashing then in panic.

Add a stroke on the strip fill then expand it’s apperance as already showed above.

Add some circles using the ellipse tool (L) to indicate the holes used to adjust the helmet.

Add a stroke around each eye and expand their appearance too.

Repeat the same technique of shading used on the teeth on teach eye, it’s pretty simple, should no take much time of you.

The Dynamite
Using the pen tool (P) draw this dynamite body.

Using the ellipse tool (L) make the shadow of it.

Trace the top of it to make a top, then added a darker red.

Using the brush tool (B) you can draw the fuse.

Also added some lights on the right side using the pencil too; (N).

Made the same on the left side to make the shadow, that’s it, it’s finished.

Hope you guys digged this tutorial and learned some quick tips on making simple illustration.

You want to create a Web Site Mascot? You want to create a Web Site Mascot?(0)

1. Introduction
Character and mascot design are nothing new and have been around for a long time, but with the advent of the internet it has seen somewhat of a renaissance. On the net we are faced with a daily barrage of information, data and imagery. The use of a site mascot can be an effective way to cut through this information overload and connect with the viewer on an emotional level. Mascots and characters can be used as part of a logo, or independently, but the advantage they have over a logo alone is that they have character and a personality all of their own.

2.Character Freebie
For added inspiration and as a bonus you are getting  the opportunity todownload the original files for your own use, which is a super freebie. See the download file for further usage information. The character is available in both AI and EPS formats.

3.The Brief

By their nature site mascots are for use on the web. Remember to set your file to RGB.


Make the characters height as close to it’s width as possible.

6.Cropping the Image

7.The Dynamics of the Image or Depth of Field

8.Line Weights and Outlines

9.It’s All in the Eyes

10.Getting Started, and Putting Ideas Onto Paper
At this stage,try get anything and everything down on paper before sifting through it to see what works for you.Then refine the roughs before using a layout pad for the final roughs.Preferably layout pads to tracing paper, as they are much cheaper and the pencil work is less prone to smudging.

11.Time to Go Digital

We’re going to go for the No.4 character, but it would work better with a goatee beard removed.

These are all going to have a very similar placement to the main character so there is the opportunity to re-use elements of the original character. This not only cut down your workload dramatically, it also adds a sense of continuity to the site. Having the separate parts of the character on individual layers is a great help here, as moving the arms and tilting the head can transform the pose.
There is to be no background to the the mascots to suggest their purpose, but adjusting the posture and the addition of some simple props can communicate this with the viewer.
Using the original drawing for the main character in conjunction with a layout pad gives me a bit of a head start when it comes to the other poses. As for the rest of the poses, it is a case of submitting these to the client and making amendments as necessary until they are happy with them.

Below are the finished characters. All that’s left to do is to supply them to the client in the format of their choice. In this case, you can download the original files for your own use here.
