6- Shapes and Colors- Part 2

Activity Progress:

Now that you’ve learned how Color and Shapes are important, let’s take another look at my example.

Watch this video showing the process of how I decided the Colors of my character:

Also, yes, I do realize I said brown instead of gray at one point. 😛



Next you’re going to use Vectr to create your character on the computer. Check out how Shapes can become your character:

More Tools and Tips:

Here are some additional videos for Vectr to help you learn more:


Grouping will be very helpful. Group all your head parts, arm parts, body parts, etc. so that you can move them as a group rather than each piece on it’s own.


Gradients let you fade colors together, creating cool effects like the one I did for the leaf tail!

Vectr has created dozens of videos for more help. You can check it out here: Vector Youtube Channel

Assignment

Now that you know what Shapes you can use, how Colors can be matched, and how to draw a digital character, you can now create the character! Make sure you like the final look of the character on paper before you put the effort into doing it on Vectr.
