About this cartoon...
A bungle in the jungle? Or is it just a cartoon rhino?
This hulking and jolly brute was created firstly as a quick pencil sketch. The sketch was then scanned in and all of the outlines digitised in Illustrator.
The next stage was to select a strong blue/grey tone for his skin, but wanted it to vary to that of the cartoon elephant that I’d completed previously.
I also managed to pick a nice contrasting pink for the insides of his ears and a different grey for his horn.
The final stage in completing the cartoon rhino was to add in all the shades and highlights, along with the quirky sticking plaster.
I had contemplated adding a little black eye to the cartoon rhino too, but thought he might look a little too beat up.
