Illustrations of monsters and other strange creatures
Being an illustrator allows me to have some free time now and then that I use for personal side projects. I like to use my imagination to create characters from scratch and explore the many directions my design can take. I can either use 2D or 3D, vector graphics or tools like Photoshop. Admittedly I am more often commissioned for corporate work but I also do receive requests for children’s illustrations and publishing. This is where I get to create monster characters and other creatures.
Here are some of my other monster sketches.
When commissioned it’s preferable to do illustrations made up of vector graphics for flexibility and scalability reasons. As a matter of fact you can resize vector graphics easily without pixelating and because they scale so well they are ideal for printed materials. Modifications are easier, like changing a character’s color for example.
However if you need a 3D illustration with real texture and some light effects then I would advise you use Adobe Photoshop even though it can be more difficult than vector graphics to modify.
Finally 3D illustration is recommended for animation. I believe that creating a 3D mascot illustration without animating it is pointless. You should rather use vector graphics characters that will easily adapt to any format.
If you need any advice or a quotation for your project, feel free to contact me.
