Drawing a Cartoon In Mischief Software (Realtime YouTube Video)

Drawing a Cartoon In Mischief Software (Realtime YouTube Video)

I read about Mischief and liked the demonstration video on their website.
I thought it made sense and sounded like a really good idea to combine the power of vector art with a painterly quality and also to have a sort of free and unrestrictive feeling in a drawing program.
The unlimited canvas seemed like a wonderful idea also – and the way you can output any selected area as a file. Anyway, I am not going to list all the things about it that seemed great, why don’t you try it out yourself.
I was quite impressed by my initial test and can definitely imagine Mischief becoming an integral part of my sketching, layout, storyboarding and freehand drawing process. As it develops I am certain many more cool features will be added.
Personally, I can recommend it.

For this project a character needed to be designed to symbolize the correctly equipped and dressed employee, who knows and adheres to the correct procedures and work safety rules.
“Oskar” was born.

A series of work-safety related illustrations was also created, mostly depicting a more unfortunate situation as in a “How not to do it” scenario. The illustrations needed to be clear without the use of any language.

The artwork was created as vector art in Adobe Illustrator CS5.

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. :)

Ian

YouTube Video: Drawing Santa Claus and Rudolph Cartoon on Wacom Cintiq Tablet

Santa Claus and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Cartoon.
“Cheers Old Friend!”

Here is a video of me drawing a quick sketch and coloring it in Autodesk SketchBook Pro software. I am using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX digital tablet screen on this one.
A wonderful tool which I can wholeheartedly recommend to any professional illustrator, graphic designer or cartoonist.

Video:

I made occasional cuts to stay within the 10 minute length limit imposed by YouTube so the drawing jumps along miraculously a few times, but I hope the steps I took are still clear.
I hope you enjoy this little presentation.

Here is a little video you might enjoy of me actually creating this exact piece of artwork.

Retro Style Illustrated Advertising Poster Art

Retro Style Illustrated Advertising Poster Art

This was a fun project to create an old-fashioned style advertising poster for a fictitious ‘ELECTRON’ brand chain of “electric’ car charging stations.
The nostalgic fifties feel was enhanced by having an old Peugeot 403 with it’s little electric flap open in the front, ready to be charged fully by the smiling and attentive pin-up girl gas station attendant.

I tried to design the actual logo and little mascot for ELECTRON in a style fitting and adhering to classic fifties logo and character design to add to the semi-authentic feel.

This piece was printed as a poster run and was also a portfolio piece to showcase my work. It was created entirely as vector art in Adobe Illustrator using a Wacom Cintiq display.
