[private]Here is a very very quick and simple tutorial showing you how just using the most basic tools of illustrator you can create a Character in a matter of few minutes. This little guy has been named ” the mummy” and is an exclusive character of the family of Boxterz** characters.
First of all the preview of what we will be creating.
Start off by creating a simple square , using the square shape tool while pressing shift create a perfect square and color it a light blue color.
Next use the mesh tool (U) and create a mesh node anywhere you like and , now using the direct selection tool (A) select the central node and color it a lighter shade.
Creating eyes! , draw a black circle and on top of it draw another circle that is white , now using mesh tool create another color point on the white circle , give it a slight blue colour.
Pretty obvious what i did here , one more black and two more white circles.
Using Pen tool create a smily little mouthTIP : to join end points select both point and hit CTRL+J
Use rounded rectangle tool and create three teeth side by side.
Using Pen tool(P) draw a gradient filled shape , i start randomly and keeping it a bit rough kept on wrapping up my mummy boxter.
