The Inkscape Tutorials blog has returned after a hiatus and I felt guilty for letting things slide on this blog. One of the video tutorials featured there is a Google+ live drawing event. It’s an amazing video tutorial on character design by István Szép from Pesto Design.
I liked the fox and it inspired me to do my own version. I went for a stylised version with blocks of solid colour, few curves like paper cut-outs. I associate this with graphic illustrations of the mid 20th century, especially in Europe, but there are plenty of goofy, naive illustrations everywhere here in Japan.
