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

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

By the way I am also a featured artist and Wacom evangelist on the official Wacom website.
