Li’l Guy and Mini: Observation

LG_Mini Observation WC


I created Li’l Guy and Mini some years ago. They don’t see the light of day very often. Basically these 2 are little people pursing big dreams. Guy is perpetually a chef looking for the next big recipe and Mini is always inventing. I chose them to demonstrate the science fiction genre.

The Outdoor Watercolor Learning Experience

When creating comic characters, you’ll likely want to use a form of Bristol board. It is basically a textured or non textured paper of a heavier weight. It generally holds wet media better than most card stock papers found at an office supply store. I used blue tape to block out my borders. Unfortunately, this painters tape tears the paper. Since it is a comic strip, I focused on using flat colors. This will keep your graphic characters more flat to keep it potent visually. Use primary colors as your main colors and complimentary colors sparingly.
