Check out the workflow behind our latest illustration for Tap Cats: Epic Card Battle!
Our talented Art Director Cody starts of the process with a rough thumbnail sketch or two, feeling out the composition and making sure there’s a space to showcase our new logo!
Once we’ve picked a thumbnail we like, the next step is to clean up the sketch, plan out the cats, and make sure the illustration will fit well for all our intended purposes. This one is going to be our social media header, and we want it to feature our whole cast of poster cats.
Next up is a quick colour sketch to make sure all our colours and values are going to work in this composition:
And then the sketch gets cleaned up into the final line work:
Once the lines are ready to go they get handed over to one of our artists to colour, in this case our awesome artist Carmen! She starts of blocking in all the colours first to make sure everything is going according to plan. There’s a lot of cats and colours to organize in this image!
And then we add the final effects to make this illustration the awesome social media banner we were hoping for! It’s a long process but it’s worth the effort. We hope you like it as much as we do!
