Frog character design for client
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Lyn Stone | Share link:

A quirky little ‘hoppity’ frog character I designed recently for a client’s picture book. They loved the character I created. I can share this with you, as this project did not develop further.

Having chatted with the client and read the manuscript, I knew exactly how little frog (the main character) should look. He needed to be young and a bit of a day dreamer, which of course eventually leads him into trouble! These have been sketched using a rotary pencil and then digitally coloured. The actual artwork for the book may have been conventionally created, using watercolours. The digital colouring allows one to change colours quickly for a client, if needed.

I was looking for an artist to help me create my business logo and branding for my business. With so many artists to choose from I was thrilled when I found Lyn Stone on Hire an Illustrator. Her whimsical style, finesse, and talent set her far above the countless others. Being new to the experience of hiring an artist, it was reassuring that Lyn was so helpful and walked me through the entire process. After thoroughly gathering my ideas, she rendered a beautifully designed logo with branding and illustrations that I couldn’t be happier with. Her artwork is super fun, clever, and makes you smile! I love all her pieces she has displayed on her profile and I knew she would be able to make my vision come to life. I highly recommend Lyn Stone; she is a top-notch professional and a joy to work with!
