Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video

Pirate and Parrot: Realtime Cartoon Tutorial YouTube Video
Artist: Ian David Marsden

Hi,
In this brief video I am doing a rough freehand sketch of a pirate with a parrot on his shoulder. Hard to tell from the drawing which one of the two has a higher I.Q. I have to admit. Safe to assume that together they might not quite make it to 100, but that doesn’t matter. They are lovely individuals and they have hearts of gold. The parrot however is slightly distressed, because he misplaced a winning Euro Millions ticket, but that is another matter entirely.

I hope you enjoy watching the video of their creation. :)

I am working in SketchBook Pro software on a Wacom Cintiq 21UX screen.

Below are a few examples for character designs and line art illustrations that were developed for a comic strip for internal company publications. The style was to be clean and fun but also remain business like.
Clean line art, kept in black and white, with a few corporate spot colors. The story concepts would revolve around actual office themes and current projects, and sometimes also contain lighthearted tips and reminders.

Such custom designed spot illustrations can lighten up even rather dry copy and focus your attention on important passages. What’s more is that often the fee for a custom created series of illustrations is pretty much the same as what you would expect to pay for pre-existing stock art images. Except of course they look and feel custom tailored to your project and therefore elevate the production value considerably.

In this real-time video demonstration Ian shows how he creates a rough pencil sketch and adds a touch of storyboard digital marker coloring in Alias SketchBook Pro software on a Wacom Cintiq UX21. This kind of rough can be used as a loyout or scribble or in a storyboard to show the team and the client what direction you are going in, an animatic can also be created using these roughs before final art is produced. Finally the final art can be based on these sketches. There is another video based on this sketch where Ian shows how he creates final clean vector art in Adobe Illustrator on his youtube channel. Enjoy.
