    Hey Guys,

    I've had a plan in my head for quite a while now on what I wanted to do with my site. One of which is to add a website mascot.

    I haven't been drawing for long, and this is the first ever mascot I've created but I wanted a bit of feedback before I put it live in case there were any glaring problems with it you can find.

    Hopefully there aren't too many, but I will admit I am a complete novice when it comes to this. All positive criticism welcome!

    Thanks,
    Ali

    I like it from the waist up, just not as sure about the legs and the feet, they seem a bit too flat?

    I'm also not sure about the shading down the jumper and jeans - the way it is just makes it look like two coloured clothing rather than shadow!

    But I like it and I think it could work well on your site :icon_smile:

    I completely agree! I think I may create a few more versions until I get it how I want. Need to work on my shadows a bit more too!

    Thanks for all the help, I'll post up my next ones here when I get them done.

    If you're using Illustrator, take a look at the gradient mesh tool. It's great for adding depth to images :)

    Aside from the legs being flat I like it, though the neck seems a bit too bit for the rest of the body.

    Ooh, gradient mesh tool. Not used before, will look into it!

    Thanks,

    It basically adds a mesh over the object and you can change the colour at each point which will create a gradient :)
