Cartoon You (and Sol) – Design Assignment

For my final Design Assignment of the week, I worked on this prompt:

Remake you (or someone you know and love) into a cartoon character. Draw you on a piece of paper, on a tablet, take a photo and use software to convert it to comic book style, or use online programs to create a cartoon version of your character. Extra bonus points if you can come up with an origin story or add comic book elements to your final image.

So, I did just that! Using Procreate and my iPad, I sketched up a little cartoon version of me! Here it is!!

It was kind of hard because I kept wanting to put in more details but I knew I couldn’t because cartoons are supposed to be small and easy peasy. My usual art style is much more sketchy and messy too, so this irked me a little bit to do, but hey!! That’s me!! I looked at a picture of me to do it but then I kind of just started doing whatever.

I was a little inspired doing this, so I also sketched up a little headshot of Sol!

I really like this one, I think they look so cool :)) I’d like to draw them more often, finalize their design and figure out exactly how I imagine them, but I’m actually having a lot of fun with the idea that they can have any appearance, so there really is no final idea for them!! Honestly, it’d be a little fun to see how other people would imagine Sol, so if anyone wants to come up with a design, I think I’d explode (in a good way).

I just got a text that dinner is ready (at 3pm?!?!??!) so I guess that’s the end of this post!! I had a good time and I really like these art design prompts and assignments, they really get my brain thinking again and it’s actually getting me back into art, so I’m very happy for that 🙂
