Children Illustrations: “G is for Goat”
Children Illustrations:: This illustration took 45 minutes to complete.
I drew the work on paper first with a pencil, took a picture of the image with my phone, emailed the image to myself, and finally imported the image into FlashCS6.
Using the INK TOOL and FILL TOOL, create the linework and color in the character.
Selecting parts of the filled in colored sections (with the “paint selected” on), color in the details, shadows, and highlights.
Add a background. Create the basic shape to show off the character.
Once the scene is set, you can add more highlights and shading to add to the illustration.
Use gradients to add depth and texture to soft the grass.
Added filters to the mountains helped in highlighting and shading the hills.
Final Image! 😉
