My kids have been creating their own games on Scratch, the MIT site designed to teach principles of programming to children. One of my daughters has been particularly dedicated to trying more complex things, so I told her I would illustrate assets for her to create a scrolling game.
I illustrated and articulated this character in different positions used to create a simple frame-by-frame animation.
Because there will be quite a few to produce (and as I’m just doing this on my spare time), I have to make each asset a basic design. However, being able to help my kids be creative is really fun and I’m looking forward to seeing her develop her talents.
The “thin” snowman is from the same line as the “thin” Santa I shared yesterday.
I’m also sharing some designs I did for a baby shoe ornament line called Baby Steps. Rather than show my drawings, I thought I’d show you the finished product from images scanned from Cast Art Industries’ catalog. I designed about a dozen of these Christmas ornaments. I also designed another dozen of these, which were non-Christmas, musical versions, and of which I’m including an image.
