About this cartoon...
This cute cartoon Hippo character started out life as an amusing quick doodle in the sketchbook. Influenced by Fiona, the Hippopotamus from Cincinati Zoo. I decided she would work nicely as a new jungle cartoon character for my portfolio.
Creating my cartoon Hippo
Once I had the rough shapes down in pencil, it was time to make her digital, starting with some solid outlines. A nice mauve tone was then added to make her stand out against the green of the jungle leaves.
