The style of a character design often depends on the software it was created with. Raster based applications like Photoshop lead to digitally painted artwork with realistic texturing and shading; 3D modelling programs like Maya allow artists to produce easily animated characters with realistic surface materials; while vector software like Adobe Illustrator typically lends itself to more stylised and abstract designs made from basic shapes, hard outlines and bright colours. In today’s inspiration showcase I present a variety of fun vector character designs from a range of artists. See how they all adopt a different illustration style, but they all feature the recognisable aesthetics of vector artwork.
