Character Study – Pirates!
Posted 8 months ago and submitted by Darren Gate | Share link:

I’ve recently been working on a series of pirate character studies, which have been a part of a larger children’s project. Above is a quick sample of the Pirates in action so far.

Drawn using a mixture of Adobe Fresco and Photoshop, followed by animation in Adobe After Effects.

For more portfolio examples please visit my portfolio.

Thanks for reading.

Darren is an enthusiastic, committed illustrator who is a pleasure to work with. He listened closely to our brief and feedback, he was a good communicator and he created some great artwork for us. We'd be very happy to work with him again!
