The Bearfuls From Sketch to Stickers

meet-the-bearfuls-a4man

I was hired by Dead Jam to create art for The Bearfuls sticker pack, it’s now avalible on the app store!

Below is the design process I use for such client work.

I always begin with Clip Studio Paint to create sketch work as it allows me to produce quick rough grayscale sketches that can be used to exchange ideas with the client. Below is the origins of The Bearfuls.

Using the sketches I create a rough colour guide to get an idea of how the final product should look. Dead Jam and I gave them colours to match their personalities.deadjam-a4man-03

For Bearfuls Adobe Illustrator was then used to create the final pieces. I also use Photoshop or Clip Studio Paint depending on the piece and usage.

Torchlight Terror.

Torchlight Terror. A4man

I keep coming back to this little gem of a game called Don’t Starve. The only problem is that I always die by making carless mistakes. Like running out of necessary ingredients before night fall to make a fire because I got sidetracked exploring or crafting. Many times have I got so far but died due to only having one torch available. On one game I had a chest that followed me, Chester, who carried a few of my items. He was pretty adorable for luggage!

So this is what I based my illustration on. That moment of panic when your torch starts to die out as you run around with Chester trying to quickly craft a fire.

A few of many sketches from when I created Torchlight Terror:
