The first one is tasty pancake. Its a Tasty pancake relaxing covered in Syrup and loving it. Why because I love pan cakes and really wanted to make a character out of it.
This is the original Rough of the image and was with all the other doodles. I have been Experimenting with colour and mostly flat shape. it was more of trying to bring out the character it the image and I was thinking of the syrup being almost like oil and thought of a pancake tanning in the sun with the syrup. The muppets with also a huge inspiration for there use of simple shape and color.
Basic flat shapes
I continued to build up the flat shapes in photoshop and keeping it more rounded off as possible.
the simple shapes were really important, to keep the nice vibe and character in the illustration.
after that I mess around with the clipping tool the different shapes to add the gradient shading and the reflective light and shade of the syrup.
Thank you so much for looking at the first of many Tasty's. If you like the illustration and want it for yourself follow the links bellow.
