I love working in 'toon' styled art, and so I thought to get a bit of practice I'd illustrate my next t-shirt design in a toon style.
This design is inspired by the movie Aliens, and a previous design I put together for the Alien film based on Ripley found here.
One of the things I enjoy about toon styled artwork is the how simple the line work and colouring can look to create, 'cos it is anything but. As the work is so clean and 'simple' the slightest cock-up stands out like a bright red flag emblazoned with 'MISTAKE' in bold white text on it. It's surprising how many mistakes can be hidden in a detailed image that you just can't get away with on a simple toon styled image. Which is why I enjoy the challenge of illustrating in this style as well as the finished look.
