Boys Face Transforms into Superboy

I created a cute boys face about a week ago and posted it on the blog, however something was niggling me about it.

Then it hit me, the eyes are just to small, well behold the update below. I think the eyes work much better at this size and he looks much cuter then before.

You'd also have to be blind not to notice a few other changes to him. Let me know what you think.

Boy's (My) Face Illustrated

Hot on the heels of the illustrated girl's face posted earlier today, I now present to you the boys face, which is basically a caricature of myself, however my eyes certainly aren't that large.

A couple of small alterations between the 2 illustrations are the ears are now positioned behind the head rather than been a whole shape, the black line around the eyes has also been made thinner as I though in hindsight (what a beautiful thing that is) they looked a little to heavy on the girl.

You may have noticed a couple of slight changes.

Hi back again, just letting you all know that I'm going to start posting about more than just sales and the like from my Zazzle store.

I actually have an enormous amount of illustrative work available on i-stockphoto therefore I'm going to start posting about my goings on over there. Additionally I'll also be posting my sketches.

Regarding the sketches, I actually tend to do a lot of my illustrations straight on the mac without sketching anything, when you find yourself with over 5 thousand illustrations it's pretty easy to use that as a clip-art library and create just about anything.

However contradicting the above I am going to aim to do more sketches this year just to really spruce up everything.

Cute Girls Face Illustrated

Well back sooner than I thought with a follow up to the below post.

I've worked up the little girls face in the bottom left corner of the sketch and think it works really well.

I'll also work up the full body for her later today but may choose to create a selection of additional faces, we'll just all have to sit tight and wait and see what I feel like doing.

New Sketches for 2010

Decided to begin to post some of my sketch work that I do prior to working up the illustrations up in Freehand on my Mac.

Obviously the main sketch on the page is going to be a new Superhero character and it contains information which I can break down and use on a number of suit combinations.

The cute kids are potentially going to be mini-me's, the boys head is actually an interpretation of me, I'm planning to do a whole series of cute kid's in a variety of guises, like rock, emo, goth, sporty etc and perhaps even mini's of characters throughout popular culture, I suppose the sky really is the limit here.

I'll also post the finished illustrations so you can see the evolution from sketch to the finished article. If this is something you would like to see more often just let me know in the comments or by e-mail and I'll endeavour to oblige.
