About this cartoon...
This Egyptian mummy cartoon was created as part of a series of cartoon monsters. I wanted to add a fun cartoon mummy with outstretched arms and lots of funny character about him.
You can just imagine him making his way up a dusty old Egyptian pyramid tomb, accompanied by his little spider friend!
Creating my cartoon mummy character
My Egyptian mummy cartoon started as a series of loose shapes to build up the typical, outstretched arm pose.
His bandages were then built up in pencil, ensuring there’s a balance of tight and loose, trailing bandages.
The final stage was to digitise the outlines and add in some basic colours. I opted for a teal colour for the skin, to add contrast, and made sure there was some peeking through the bandages at intervals.
