Like most of my tutorials this one starts with basic shapes – circles and squares and simple lines. If you are new to the tutorials it might be helpful to read from the beginning. Even though they are not in a special order some of the skills used here have been explained in a more detailed way in earlier posts.
With the basic elements in place it’s a matter of working out the expressions you are after… Adding different mouth shapes, squinting or enlarging the eyes.
I will add a page or two with the facial expressions here soon. For now I want to finish another tutorial I have been dying to complete first – a cartoony helicopter to take me back to one of my favorite jobs (doing the (pixel) art of HeliAttack 3 in 2005).
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did – and believe me I really missed doing tutorial art and writing these little posts.
