Your client has asked to create a mascot for one of their campaigns. How do you go about creating it? Well, it is very easy with the tools like Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop or with Adobe illustrator. You simply need a couple of details about the character like its gender, hair style, shape of the eyes, any special features etc. Remember, the character represents the brand and hence has to really come alive with its looks.

Fear not. Follow a few simple steps and create one.

  • Step 1

Gather all information about the character. E.g. its gender, built, facial features, hair style, eyes etc. With this information you may get a rough idea about the looks of this character. Now let’s begin.

  • Step 2

Draw a circle first. Then cut this circle in two vertical halves with a line. Extend this line out of the circle. Ensure that the length of this line should be approximately equal to the radius or 2/3rd of diameter of the circle. Join this bottom of the line with the edge of the circle to create an egg shape. You will get the face outline.

 

  • Step 3

Draw a horizontal line dividing the vertical line in half. Draw a second line dividing the lower vertical line in two parts. Now, draw a third horizontal line dividing the lowermost section of the vertical line. The topmost line is where eyes will appear, below it the bottom of the nose and below it the bottom of the lower lip.

  • Step 4.

On the topmost horizontal line, on either side of the vertical line, make a mark where you think the eyes should B.Sc. in animation in punebegin.  Draw the outline of any one eye first followed by the other eye on the other side of the vertical line. Draw both the eyebrows in a similar way. Depending on the brief received, the eye could be a normal human eye, or one mechanical eye (robot). The same needs to be followed. Let us assume it is a face with two normal eyes with proper iris.

  • Step 5.

Draw a line on both sides of the main vertical line at the starting of each eye. The point where these two lines meet the second horizontal line is the end of the nostrils. The shape of the nose can be made depending on the features needed.

  • Step 6.

The bottom of the lower lip should touch the lowest horizontal line. Draw a line on either side of the main vertical from the centre of the both iris. The junction of these vertical lines with the lowest horizontal is the end of lips.

  • Step 7.

Measure a distance equal to half the width of eye and mark it on the topmost horizontal line. This distance should be measured from outside of both the eyes on either side. Also, mark another point on the main vertical line below the lower lip to denote the chin. Connect the chin with these two marks outside the eyes on the main horizontal line to form the jaw line of the character.

  • Step 8

Draw the outline of ears between the topmost and second horizontal line on either side. Draw the neck where the jaw-line and the lowermost horizontal meet.

Drawing a face - pic 8

Generally, a face is vertically symmetric, minor variation is what will add the special features to your character. Remember to keep it simple till this point. After this outline, add hair and other features to lend more credibility to your character depending on the characters’ requirement.

Depending on the character’s personality, the detailing of eyes, jaw-line, nose etc can be done. If it is a robotic character, there would hardly be any expressions on the face, but if it is a human character, then the smile, twinkle of eyes, hair style needs to be worked upon to lend life. Graphic-Designing course

Once the outline is done in a line diagram, colours could be added with brushes and colour gradient could be introduced to add to the special facial features. Remember, the most important feature of the face are eyes, devote most effort to the eyes and the character will get a natural look. Even if you’re using any tool the guidelines are pretty much same except that you have to use, Pen tool, shape tool and brushes.

Sketching is an very interesting subject but it need lots of dedication and time. A well planner course which covers all the aspects of art and animation can be a turning point of your career.
